  • [[artnid:342126|Apple's iPad may have been delayed in Australia]] until the end of May, but we've been lucky enough to get our hands on an [[artnid:342882|imported US iPad]] well before launch. This has given us an opportunity to put the much hyped tablet through its paces, including seeing just how the 150,000+ existing [[artnid:309245|iPhone]] apps look on the large, 9.7in display.
