A tipster says, "The first thing that came to mind when I gazed onto the 'magical' iPad was how much it reminded me of the Star Trek PADD." Thing is, said tipster also develops apps. And so this happened.

This one's called Captain's Log, and it's actually just a clever skin for a little collection of social networks. And as gimmicky as it is, it captures a whiff of what the iPad really is for a lot of people: Sci-Fi wish fulfillment. For a certain type of human, this will be enough to justify this oversized iPhone's existence.
