Cape Town - As President Jacob Zuma prepared to give his State of the Nation address in Cape Town on Thursday, few may be aware that his speech was prepared on an iPad.

A picture emerged on Twitter of the president going over his speech on the tablet touch screen device.

The office of the presidency confirmed that Zuma owned the tablet computer which has just been officially launched in SA.

"Yes, it is his, but I'm not sure for how long he's had it," Zanele Mngadi of the presidency told News24 in the build-up to the evening speech.

The picture on Twitter shows Zuma sitting in his office going over his speech, but it is unclear what apps the president prefers.

Launch

"I don't know what he uses it for," admitted Mngadi.

The Core Group recently launched the Apple iPad in SA, nearly a year after it was launched in the US where it has become a hot selling device with sales of about 14 million worldwide.

Retailers have announced that they will stick to the recommended retail price, but the iPad may soon face stiff competition as several companies have announced challengers, including Hewlett-Packard, Dell, and BlackBerry maker Research in Motion.

There is also fervent speculation that Apple will release a second generation iPad soon.
