The Apple iPad bridges the gap between the iPod Touch/iPhone and Apples’ Macbook lineup. The iPad has a 9.7′ inch multi-touch LED display. Apple has itself manufactured the processor of the iPad. The processor of the iPad runs at 1Ghz and is known as the A4. Along with the use of this processor and some software tweaks, Apple has managed to make the iPad a great little gaming device. To make most of the current games compatible with the iPad, Apple has used two notable software tweaks here. Scotts said to make the application and games compatible with the iPad, they approached the do it with pixel for pixel accuracy in a black box, or we can pixel-double and run them in full-screen.

Since the iPad also features an in built accelerometer, gaming on it is an absolute pleasure. Gaming on the iPod Touch/iPhone was already a pleasure. The iPad has taken the pleasure of gaming to the next level. The iPad in fact feels like a bigger version of the iPod Touch/iPhone. During the event, EA demonstrated Need For Shift on the iPad and the graphics looked pretty slick. The game did run a bit sluggish though. Since the game was developed in only under 2 weeks, it could not be properly optimized for the iPad.

The use of the inbuilt Accelerometer, along with the large 9.7inch multi-touch screen is definitely going to make way for games with awesome game play. The Need For Speed demo depicted this, when users need to double tap on the mirror on the screen to look back.Apple also released a new version of the SDK which includes new tools for the iPad. Developers will soon make use of these tools, to make some addictive games for the iPad.

Aside from being a great device for reading eBooks, and browsing the web on the go the Apple iPad is also a great gaming device.

Apple also launched a new store called the iBook Store. The iBook store along with the iBook application, makes for a perfect ebook reader. The Amazon Kindle has got some tough competition in the form of the iPad now. Looking at the specifications, features and pricing of the iPad, the device bridges the gap between Apple iPod Touch/iPhone and Macbook Pro line-up. The lack of USB ports here is a serious deal breaker. Apple this time though has priced the iPad at a very competitive price.

Overall, if the iPad does not have niggling issues most first generation of Apple products have, the iPad will be a terrific entertainment device. The Wi-Fi models of the iPad will start shipping from late March, while the 3G models will ship from the month of April.
