Apple has aired the first advertisement for the iPad, shown during last night’s Oscars ceremony.

According to the Guardian, Apple CEO Steve Jobs attended the event.

The ad, which can be watched below, shows the tablet being used for a range of functions including watching films (specifically, the recent Star Trek movie), checking email, viewing photos and reading e-books and newspapers.

The advert follows Apple’s recent announcement that the iPad will be available in the US from 3 April. The device is due to land in the UK later that month.
