Hi, I'm a pad and I'm mlb

If you may remember I reviewed the mlb at bat 2009 iphone app last year and as you know I loved it. Condensed games, highlights, and full out of market games to watch were an absolute time waster for a baseball fan. Now apple has lured me with another device that they revealed today: the iPad. From the macworld live blog:

Extremely excited to make something for the iPad. Didn't just want to make their app biger, wanted to create whole new experience. Live game experience with data from last April. Navigate league scoreboard across the top. Shows you every throw. Tap any player to flip open baseball card. Show video highlights while this is going on. Across the bottom you can see box score, field, line up, summary. Watch live with your choice of home or away announceres. Enhance with live data from MLB.com while you watch.

Awesome. I just might have to lay down $500.

The app looks amazing, but unless you want to lay down $629+ for the 3G iPad, plus $30/month for unlimited data, you might as well just use MLB.tv on your computer. You're going to have to pay for the subscription anyway, and the functionality looks to be pretty much the same.

They could offer no other apps but this MLB one and I'd buy the device. Just call it an iBat or iManny or something.

Yeah, but just try and find wifi coverage in the wilderness. You could wander for 40 years out there and still not find a signal.

@Mr. C: Hmm, good point. Maybe I'll just take a capsule, or even a caplet, instead.

@sax

An iGelcap, even.

When they want me to get an iNema, I'm drawing the line.
