Let the "iPad Family" Rumors Commence!

Let the "iPad Family" Rumors Commence!

Yes, the iPad won't even ship until exactly a week from today but that doesn't mean there aren't folks out there already busy starting "iPad family" rumors replete with iPad nano and iPad HD no less. No surprise, right? "iPhone family" rumors have been dredged up almost yearly by all manner of Apple analysts. Yet there's still no "iPhone nano" (or iPhone HD for that matter). So, forgive us if no breath is being held...

Should iPad apps be free if you already own the iPhone version?

Should iPad apps be free if you already own the iPhone version?

If you've bought [App X] for the iPhone and the developer makes [App X] for the iPad, should you get the iPad version for free?

We've seen developers like Instapaper's Marco Arment specifically making "universal binaries" so users who bought the $4.99 Pro version can download an iPhone update, install it on their iPad, and get an iPad-specific user interface (UI) as well. (Think of it as two similar apps in one handy download).

We've also seen leaked screenshots have shown "HD" or "for iPad" versions of many popular iPhone apps and games that are being released as separate, all new downloads. In many cases these HD apps offer substantial differences brought about by the bigger screen real-estate and beefier processing power of the iPad and will carry their own price tag and perhaps be more expensive than the iPhone versions due to the greater effort put into them (more pixels, more functionality).

Some users no doubt feel entitled to free iPad versions if they already bought the iPhone version while some developers likewise feel entitled to get paid for the work they put into making different versions for a different device.

Apple Secures iPad Trademark

Apple has secured the trademark for "iPad" from Fujitsu. Though details are non-existant, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) shows the name changed hands on March 17. Much like when Apple secured the iPhone name from Cisco, it should put to rest any lingering doubts about a last minute name change to iMagical or iRevolutionary iNew iDevice.

Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt Take Coffee, Talk Shop

Gizmodo has just posted up some candids of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and Google CEO Eric Schmidt taking tasty beverages together and talking shop at the Calafia in the Town and Country, Pal Alto, which is owned by former Google chef Charlie Ayers. Reportedly Jobs was overheard saying:

  • "They're going to see it all eventually so who cares how they get it."
  • "Let's go discuss this somewhere more private."

What the "it" and the "this" are precisely, we don't know. Could this be the first tender, fragile steps towards reconciliation? Was the public setting intentional?
