Apple is just giving away its iPads - or is it?

Apple iPad not quite what we were expecting

So, Apple has finally announced its long-heralded tablet device and called it the iPad. But, wait a minute, there's already something called an iPad and it's already available on the Apple Store.

The iPad app is freeware which allows you to turn your humble iPod into an iPad – essentially a notepad that allows you to write 1000 word notes and store them on your PMP.

We are sure Apple cleared the name with Widgeteria first, right? Because, it is on the app store and proudly proclaims: "The all-new iPad – 1000 words in your pocket".

Saying that as the all-new all-new iPad hardly fits into your pocket, we are assuming that there will be no confusion there.

At least, when your mates ask – do you own an iPad, you can say YES. And show them this nifty little app that you downloaded for free.
