10 iPhone Business Apps That Should Be on iPadBy Nicholas Kolakowski
Apple's iPad has the potential to help bring tablet PCs truly mainstream, offering consumers a 9.7-inch LED backlit glossy multitouch display with a 1,024-by-768 resolution. While much of the buzz following Apple's Jan. 27 unveiling of the device has focused on its ability to show movies and e-books, a number of potential business applications also exist for a screen that size. Apple has claimed that some 140,000 apps will be available for the iPad through the App Store when the device is released in two months, and developers are likely already seeing how they can transfer their existing iPhone apps to this new format. The following apps, designed for business use and already popular on the iPhone, are ones that could likely find even greater use by being ported onto the iPad.
