Apple lists iPad-ready websites

Apple has posted a list of major websites which have prepared themselves for the iPad. Among the sites listed are CNN, Reuters, The New York Times, Vimeo, Time, Major League Baseball, The White House, Virgin America, Sports Illustrated, Flickr, People Magazine, and TED. Repeatedly, the small descriptions for each site mention HTML5 video players, possibly in an effort to quell fears that the device’s lack of Flash support will hinder users’ ability to fully experience websites. Also appearing on the page is a link to submit sites that are “taking advantage of the latest web standards,” as well as a link to an Apple developer technical note explaining how to prepare web content for iPad.

My site currently checks for 14 different mobile types. The list I have is Android, Sony Ericsson Aspen, Blackberry 9500 and 9530, Cupcake, HTC Dream, Sanyo Incognito, iPhone, iPod, Opera Mini Browser, Webmate on iPhone and iPod Touch, iPad and also Palm Webos. The site will also play videos on all devices including the iPad 3G which I regularly use to check the web standards and performance of the website. I have found from experience that you now need to offer your site to as many internet enabled devices as possible.
