Surely a lot of my readers would be wondering what the iPad’s functioning will look and feel like. We have all seen simulation videos by Apple of how some applications will run. But a developer has now created a Mac OS widget which simulates the Dashboard of the iPad.
The iPad is to be released on April 1st. Most users however should not be surprised if their city gets the iPad later than that date. With the iPad’s release a hundred applications will be readily available to download from the Apple’s store for the iPad. That is a hundred applications, at least.
Only a few more days to go and we all will be seeing iPad owners uploading videos and pictures of their iPad usage. We will see tutorials as to how a certain function can be performed. We will also see videos demonstrating certain problems which users will have. And soon enough we will see videos of the iPad being hacked and exceeding its intended software limitations.
But until those videos hit the internet, we can view something an iPad-interested developer created. The developer I am referring to holds a Bachelor’s in Computer Science degree from Carnegie Mellon and is Rich Hong. He has built a widget application for simulate the iPad’s dashboard. He has even made a video of his application and posted it on his site. That video can be watched here.
I want to personally thank Rich for setting to rest at least a portion of our iPad-curiosity.
