    Just some interesting facts about how many native iPad applications there have been since it's release in the US on April 3rd, 2010:

    - About 2000 as of iPad launch day (3 April 2010).
    - 3500 as of the Firmware 4.0 Keynote (8 April 2010).
    - Over 5000 as mentioned in an Apple press release (3 May 2010).
    - 8500 as of the WWDC Keynote (7 Jun 2010).

    EDIT: Over 11,000 as of 22 Jun 2010.

    I used to have an iPad, but parents took it away and I figured I kind of deserved it. They are keeping it to themselves, but they were the ones to buy it. That being said, I'm going to save money for myself and buy a 64GB iPad even though I used to have one.

    Its a pity all of these apps are not released in the uk store, Ive had my Ipad for almost 2 weeks now and i keep looking for apps or clicking on links to apps only to find there in the US store only, even the apps demo'd by steve jobs in the WWDC 2010 arent in the uk store. The ebay app for the ipad is another example of one thats not there.
    Hopefully this will change as the weeks go by.

    It was much the same back when the App Store for iPhone/iPod touch came out in July 2008... I think the UK Store is always playing catch up... so is the Canadian store I use, but not as much...
