When you look at the iPad and all its features, it is no secret that it resembles the iPhone or iPod Touch, but PC World reckons that the tablet is so much more than both these devices. Most of the functions are the same, but it is when you get to the hardware that the iPad excels. However, that could all change with the release of the iPhone 4G / HD.
