Apple has just updated their website showing the iPad is now available with a buy now button! Apple stores on the east coast are now open and the lucky ones that braved the lines should now be getting their first glimpse at the new device that is expected to change the way of tablet computing.

Don't forget we are giving away four iPad cases to the first members that post a pic here: http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipad-news/1016-ipadforums-net-ipad-wi-fi-case-contest.html

If you still in line, or waiting by the door for the UPS truck to arrive, have a look at these apps designed especially for the iPad:


The Elements

Discover the 118 elements of the Periodic Table up close on the large iPad screen. Flick to rotate 360 degrees and inspect each one. Then read the element’s story. You’ll learn its origins, how it was discovered, and its significance in the universe. You can even see it all in 3D using 3D glasses (sold separately). The Elements features a live connection to the Wolfram | Alpha computational search engine. So you’ll have the latest data at hand. Visit The Elements on the App Store

The Wall Street Journal

Read the Wall Street Journal on iPad and soak up news from around the globe, everywhere you go. In-depth analysis, real-time quotes, video, and WSJ Radio — all your favorite sections of the Journal are here — and they’re even better on iPad. The large display shows you an entire page of award-winning news. Turn iPad horizontally to see two pages at once. You can even customize this app to get only the news you want, when you want it.

It’s the same board you know and love on the big iPad screen. But with iPad technology, SCRABBLE becomes a whole new game. Shake to shuffle tiles. Touch to zoom in and out on the board.

Labyrinth 2 HD

Let the addiction begin. iPad brings you even more quality Labyrinth time. Its Multi-Touch technology and accelerometer are incredibly responsive and precise, so you have better control of the ball.
