Here are the first (to our knowledge) class of apps to get removed from the brand new iPad App Store: Dashboards.

Desktop, for example, no longer shows up via its iTunes link.

These apps leveraged the large iPad display to offer multiple windows and mini-apps/widgets to get around some of iPhone 3.2's 3rd party multitasking constraints.

We're waiting to hear a reason for the removal. Even if it duplicates the rumored functionality of the upcoming iPhone 4.0 software, that'll be little comfort to the developers who invested time and resources into these apps.
