    Standard iPad apps vs. iPhone

    In comparing the standard apps on my iPhone to what's listed on the Features page on the Apple site I'm not seeing the following:
    • Clock
    • Stocks
    • Weather
    • Calculator
    • Voice Memos
    It also doesn't have messages or camera which wouldn't apply to the ipad at this point. I don't use Voice Memos but do use the other items.

    I'm sure there is at least 15 apps to do all those things in the app store. We also don't know any final specs yet...they might slip some more apps in before launch.

    Rumor has it that in a future software version, Apple is going to add a dashboard like feature which will include the apps you mentioned. It will be activated by a multitouch gesture or the unlabeled key on the keyboard. The rumors I have heard indicate that this will be in the iPhone 4.0 version which will also include some form of multitasking. Just rumors mind you.

    I think it is equally as likely that Apple just doesn't have the new versions of those apps finished yet. Time will tell.

    Or didn't want to clutter the display graphics with all those "old" apps so they could show off the new ones. Also to make it look big and clean and open. If you added all those apps to the home screen the iPad would have looked full up.

    If someone had told you before the iPad "Imagine the notes app running in 1024*768", I think you'd have called it silly too

    If Apple does bring these apps to the final iPad, I'm sure they'll find a way to use the added screen estate efficiently (calculations history? graphing calculator? etc.)

    The new Notes app is remade for the iPad. It basically looks like an old yellow pad with a pocket to list the notes in the book.

    Apple - iPad - Jot down notes on your iPad and take them to go.

    Pretty cool looking actually.

    But seriously....a full screen calculator app on a 10" screen.

    Yup, my point- they could remake the calculator app the same way they redid notes.

    But seriously....a full screen calculator app on a 10" screen.
    I'm a mathematician/computer scientist- I could think of tons of ways to make a calculator fit 10" seamlessly :P

    That was my point. They could turn it into a full graphical trig calc app.....but just literally porting the iphone app to a bigger screen would not work.
