iPad Compatible with "Almost All" iPhone Apps

Scott Forstall, Senior VP of iPhone software, took the stage as part of Apple's iPad introduction event to announce that "almost all" of Apple's iTunes App Store iPhone and iPod touch apps will be compatible with the new, 9.6 inch device.

Users can either run them at 1x iPhone scale (320x480) or hit a 2x button and double the size. They don't fill the screen, however, but run inside a black frame (like SD on a big HD display).

Facebook was shown as an example.

Apple Introduces iPad Tablet!

Apple Introduces iPad Tablet!

As widely expected, Apple's "latest creation" is a tablet device called... the iPad! Here's the official press release, and some details from TiPb's take:

It looks like a giant, wide, iPod touch with a gorgeous display and enough graphics power to throw around HD video and handle very slick UI elements without any hint of lag.

Also shown off were Maps (including street view), iTunes LP and iTunes Extras, and Email, Calendar, and iPod functions that look like the iPhone but with a massive functionality boost from the Mac side, including pervasive use of popups.

It will run virtually all iPhone apps, unmodified. Pixel accurate, or via pixel doubling. iPad specific SDK ships TODAY!

  • .5 inches thin
  • 1.5 lbs
  • 9.7 inch IPS display
  • 1024x768 (Old school!)

Alan Kay - Tablet-size iPhone Will "Rule the World"

9to5mac points us to a GigaOm interview with computer and GUI pioneer Alan Kay that says:

“When the Mac first came out, Newsweek asked me what I [thought] of it. I said: Well, it’s the first personal computer worth criticizing. So at the end of the presentation, Steve came up to me and said: Is the iPhone worth criticizing? And I said: Make the screen five inches by eight inches, and you’ll rule the world.”

Just under 2 hours and they'll take their shot!

20 Things We Already Know About Apple's iTablet

Here I was dreading getting ready to write an article about how the January 2010 iTablet/iSlate/iPad release was poised to replicate the January 2007 iPhone release -- a completely unannounced yet still massively hyped product that everyone thinks will be a minor iteration on the previous big-hit product, with all the surrounding cheers and jeers to go with it -- when the saintly folks over at DOGHOUSE went and did it for all of us in tidy, 20 point form.
