iPad is OUT!

Apple finally released there iPad!

As an indie game developer, I'm not impressed. In fact, I've always viewed the computer as a much more attractive platform. Today's computer hardware, CPU's, and keyboard/mouse control schemes, allow for a wide variety of games to be developed.

For instance, most iPhone games aren't first person shooters or aerial combat games *cough* Canine Combat *cough*. I see no reason for the iPad to change this. (Yes, I realize there are shooters for iPhone/iPad but most are 2D side-scrollers and not 3D masterpieces)

I understand that there are those who will always want to have the latest gadgets, and that's fine for them. But as a developer, I want to create the biggest indie games for the platform where I will have the most fun on.
