Sorry, FarmVille fans, no Apple iPad for you
This issue alone is one of the biggest limitations of Apples handheld gadgets, and while we think the iPad has as much potential as the iPhone to be a formidable gaming platform, it will still require companies like Zynga, Playfish, etc create special versions of their games to reach on-the-go Apple users.
Electronic Arts also showed off Need for Speed Shift on the device, which looked great, but those of us waiting to play online games are still going to have to wait until Zynga decides to create an App store version of FarmVille that somehow works seamlessly with the one on Facebook.
The Apple iPad starts at $499 and will be available in 60 days. Versions that include 3G will be available in 90 days.

Below is an image from Nova, a first-person shooter from Gameloft, which has been modified for the iPad.
Electronic Arts' Need for Speed Shift shows off how well this baby handles high-res graphics. Looks good, but it ain't no FarmVille.
