Some of the early commentary about the Apple iPad dismissed it as just a big iPhone or iPod Touch.
In just two years, Apple's App Store has been a success for Apple and developers, but Google's Android Market poses a legitimate threat.
One of the best things about the iPad as a platform is the flexibility developers have to aggregate media and other Web content in an interface that looks attractive and feels natural when you interact with it. Most Web services and content aggregators that have developed apps for the iPad look great, but none of them really capture the magazine-like feel of Flipboard , a new iPad app that aggregates social media in a unique and attractive way.
Developers are starting to realize that while the iPad might be little more than a "giant iPod Touch," it needs to be treated very differently. You can't just scale up--you need to think about how the device is used and how you can take advantage of its magazine-sized screen.

Rumors about OLED iPad resurface
DigiTimes today reports on rumors that Apple is looking to launch its second-generation iPad as soon as the fourth quarter of this year, adding OLED-based 5.6-inch and 7-inch models to its existing 9.7-inch LED display model. The sources noted that Apple has recently placed new iPad orders to Taiwan-based component makers for the fourth quarter of 2010 and the first quarter of 2011 with 9.7-inch, 5.6-inch and 7-inch models all included. The 9.7-inch model will see some minor changes, while Apple will add Chimei Innolux (CMI) as one of its panel suppliers.

The iPad 3G was delivered to customers on Friday, about a month after the launch of the Wi-Fi iPad. The main differences between the units are the inclusion of a 3G data module as well as GPS functionality in the newer model. iFixit has already performed a teardown of the new unit, though few surprises were found.
