The countdown to the iPad launch intensifies: Now there are just five days left until Apple's svelte tablet PC is in the hands of eager fanboys. Over the weekend, dozens of screenshots of various made-for-iPad apps surfaced. Peruse a few of them in the gallery below, and you'll probably agree that the nascent platform is off to a strong start.
Notice how these apps — whether they're games, notetaking apps or news readers — take advantage of the strengths of the iPad's form factor. For instance, see how the Reuters Pro app in the gallery below allows news items to be laid out like a newspaper. Nice.
We smell a hit in the making. Stick with us here on DVICE, and we'll give you our impressions of Apple's "magical" product when we receive our iPads on Saturday.
