“Isn’t this awesome?” Jobs says.
The iPad will run “virtually every one” of the apps for the iPhone “virtually unmodified,” he says. The iPhone apps can run in a black box in the middle of the screen or, by doubling the pixels — fill the screen.

New Opportunity for Book Publishers – the iBook Store
Apple announced The iBook Store today
Book pricing has been set similarly to what’s offered on Amazon.com’s Kindle platform — the first book will be $14.99, a Ted Kennedy book (available on Kindle for $14.78). It works just like the App Store with a simple tap to purchase the book.
The books you own will be displayed on a bookshelf and the pages inside the books themselves are displayed on an off-white background. Page turns are handled simply by tapping on the right or left sides of the screen and showcase a nice page-curling effect.
Get creative and have fun building your own iPhone and iPad applications!
