One of the big talking points for the Apple iPad is its ability to run iPhone apps. Yes, that is correct, you can pop onto the Apple AppStore and download from the massive database of existing apps. This also makes it easy for developers to create new apps specifically for the Apple iPad. Apple has released the new SDK for developers today, so they will be able to begin customising apps for the iPad imeadiately (i’m sure someone has already created one.)
