Apple's media event kicked off with stats and figures about the iPhone and iPad, but after glossing over some of the new features, senior VP of iOS software Scott Forstall introduced a brand-new app called Cards.

Cards reintroduces paper back into the equation by letting users create and mail cards right from their iPhone or iPod Touch. You design the card, and Apple does the rest, printing out your design on 100 percent cotton paper.

Currently, Cards has over 21 different card designs for six major categories, including birthdays announcements, travel, and love.

We'll update with more information and photos as soon as we get them. Stay tuned.
