Apple iPad Apps Price: More Expensive than iPhone

Tomorrow is the launch of the Apple iPad and the App store already has a number of Apps already for tablet device. We are not certain how many applications are available, but we do know that users will not be happy on the price. We need to inform you that they are more expensive than iPhone apps.
