Filemaker has announced that it will be launching a version of its popular consumer database application, Bento, for the iPad. Similar in concept to the Bento for iPhone app released last spring, the iPad version of Bento can be used as a standalone app or sync via Wi-Fi with the Mac version of Bento. The new version has been redesigned to take advantage of the larger screen size and UI features offered by the iPad to provide smoother database navigation and a visually appealing presentation of data. The app will ship with a number of database templates to allow users to quickly get started and is expected to be sold as a separate app for the same $5 price tag as the iPhone version.

What would be really cool if it could access networked SQL databases OTA.
Most SQL front ends aren’t designed for a Tablet Touch interface, which is a real shame. Most Storemen still use clipboards. Those lucky enough to be able to access live stock data are forced to use clunky, slow, expensive Handheld WiMo or DOS-based devices.
