iPhone No Longer "Mobile", Big Enough to be Own Gaming Platform Now

iPhone No Longer "Mobile", Big Enough to be Own Gaming Platform Now

I already mentioned I'm on my way to GDC 2010 to cover the iPhone panel, and that iPhone gaming is getting big, so it's interesting to see CNET reenforce just how big it's getting:

strikingly absent among those 18 [Mobile Gaming] panels are any that deal with game development specifically for the iPhone. And why? Because for the first time, the GDC advisory board decided that Apple's smartphone is an important enough platform to warrant its own summit. And it filled quickly.

Simon Jeffrey, vice president of social applications for leading iPhone game developer Ngmoco says:

iPad TV Commercial Shows iBooks Pricing, NYT Best Seller Button, My Documents, Smudge/Camera

While I was busy enjoying the subtler UI details, AppleInsider noticed that last night's iPad commercial debut showed what might be some of the pricing inside the new iBooks Store:

The commercial showed Sen. Edward Kennedy's "True Compass: A Memoir" for $14.99, the novel "I, Alex Cross" by James Patterson for $12.99, and "Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Journey to Change the World... One Child at a Time" by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin for $7.99.

For comparison, "True Compass" currently sells for $19.25 for the Amazon Kindle, "I, Alex Cross" costs $9.99, and "Three Cups of Tea" costs $7.19.

Whether or not that was final, or merely mocked up pricing for the commercial, remains to be seen.

Whether you are a fan of the Castle Defender genre or Zombies, you are sure to love the soon to be released ZombieSmash! for iPhone and iPod touch.

In similar fashion to the very popular Plants vs Zombies, ZombieSmash! adds a few new tricks to Castle Defender games with the addition of some fancy ragdoll physics and excessive amounts of cartoon gore. Look for ZombieSmash! to drop in the App Store sometime this month for $1.99.

UPDATED: Apple Debuts iPad Commercial During Oscars

It looks like the iPad did indeed decide to join Steve Jobs at the 82nd Academy Awards, at least in the for of Apple's first official commercial. Is the Oscar setting fitting for a media consumption power house, or was it just the huge audience?

It featured a song like iPod touch commercials, rather than music like the iPhone. In this case, There Goes My Love by The Blue Van [iTunes link via TUAW]. Visually, it showed a variety of features, point-of-view on iPad's held on a variety of laps. You can watch it now via Apple.com [Thanks Swiftman!].

It ended with the US shipping date of April 3rd.

Steve Jobs on Oscars Red Carpet

Likely there to cheer for Up and Pixar, Disney's largest shareholder (oh, and Apple CEO!) Steve Jobs walks the Oscar red carpet at the Academy Awards.

(No, we don't know who he was wearing, or if he had an iPad in an extra-large, Stephen Colbert-sized tux pocket, okay?)
