IPad vs IPhone games comparison:
Graphics: Winner - IPad
The IPhone 4 and IPad use the same apple A4 processor for graphics and computing but the IPhone 4 has twice the memory of the IPad. Games on the IPhone would win over the IPad but since most IPhones are not IPhone 4s, the IPad wins.
Screen: Winner - IPad
The IPad has a 9.7 inch screen compare to 3.5 inches on the iPhone. Games look much better and are easier to access on a larger screen. However, the iPhone has almost 3 times more pixel density than the iPad. Look for 2011's IPad to improve over the IPhone
Control: Winner - IPhone
Games on the IPad are wonderful on a large screen but the IPad lacks cameras. Although few games utilize the camera, the IPad are limited further from the IPhone. The IPad also lacks other key hardware but expect 2011's IPad to improve on features
Games: Winner - IPhone
The iPad was released in 2010 and many developers have not taken advantage of its processing power nor screen size. The lack of a front or rear camera also limits the games and content.
Since there are more games and content on the IPhone, the iPad lacks a unique game that targets the IPad gamers
Potential: Winner - IPad
Tablets are the new laptops with major businesses such as Google, Dell and HP releasing tablet computers in 2011. IPad currently hold a 95.5% of the market. IPad is expected to sell 7 million units in 2010. These numbers are better than the IPhone in its release. Sales of the IPad are projected to reach over 25 million units in 2011. Expect apple to follow the business models of the IPod and IPhone and create an excellent 2011 IPad.
Winner - IPad
Apple and their 3 rd party developers aim high and developed a device great for games. Games on the IPad have advantages and drawback compare to games on the IPhone. However, IPad is still in its infancy and 2011's IPad should be a big improvement. Ultimately, apple provided great hardware but developers need to create games for the IPad that are better, more unique and target gamers on the IPad.
