Although Apple is pushing EPUB as the de facto standard for their new iBooks app, there will be plenty of times when you need to open and read a PDF file that’s not attached to an e-mail. ReaddleDocs is one of the classic iPhone apps which does that -- and a whole lot more -- and it’s now available for the iPad.
No more speculation: Apple has just announced that the iPad sold over 300,000 units on its first day, encompassing preorders shipped to customers as well as sales at both Apple Store and Best Buy locations.
Now that the iPad is actually in the hands of folks who can tear it down and run it through its paces, it appears the device is actually twice as fast as the already speedy iPhone 3GS -- despite having similar specs.

solace new iPad owners: the hard part is over. Now comes the fun of
loading your glorious new tablet with tons of sweet and innovative apps.

receiving our iPads, and put together a list of 25 launch games worth
the time and money of you lucky early adopters.
