The launch of the iPad is just around the corner and Apple is preparing for it in a big way; the Mac-maker has invited its registered developers to submit applications for the iPad. The invitations have been sent out via email and inform the developers that Apple’s review board has started accepting software developed with iPhone SDK 3.2 Beta 5.

The official email sent by the company to developers reads, “iPad will begin shipping soon and your opportunity to be part of the grand opening of the iPad App Store starts today. Submit your iPad app now for an initial review by the App Review Team and receive feedback on its readiness for the grand opening.”

Though the official launch date for the “grand opening” in the US is 3 April, Apple has asked developers to make sure their apps are ready and submitted by 27 March, 5pm PDT if they want a place in the opening. By doing so, Apple hopes to have enough applications ready by the launch date. Here’s what the company has listed as the key requirements for developers:

•    Build and test your iPad app using iPhone SDK 3.2 beta 5 available on the iPhone Dev Center. Only iPad apps built with iPhone SDK 3.2 beta 5 will be accepted for this initial review.
•    Upload your distribution signed app through iTunes Connect by Saturday, March 27, 5pm PDT.
•    The App Review Team will review your app on iPad and email you details about the readiness of your app.
•    You will also receive additional information about submitting your app for final review before iPad ships.
•    Only apps submitted for the initial review will be considered for the grand opening of the iPad App Store.

3 April is only going to see the launch of the Wi-Fi only model of the iPad, while the 3G-capable version will hit the market in the latter part of the month.

right so ive built my new folding rig and after testing ive discovered it to highly outperform my current set up overclockin wise so ive put my gpu and ram into that and i get my new cooler delivered at some point today so i can overclock it even more 3.4 was my limit cause of temps and what i was next thinkin of doing was puttin my raid set up in there to add a bit more speed and my current install of windows with everything on it cause its a total pain in the back end having to do that all over again but im not sure if that will work, both mobo's have the same raid controller ICH9R

I think changing Raid arrays over to different mobos is fine if you have the same Raid controller chip. Such as ICH10R.
