While everyone in the US waits for the iPad Wi-Fi to ship this Saturday and bring iPad apps along with it, let's not forget the iPhone and its App Store already 170,000 strong. Here are some new games and notable updates to keep us all busy while we wait!

Battle your way through a campaign of missions, taking part in daring bombing runs or defending your base against enemy squadrons.

From the Galleries screen, tap Add a Friend and then Choose Contacts (the number in parentheses indicates how many MobileMe members are in your address book).
