After last year revolutionizing the ailing tablet market, Apple today unveiled their latest iPad to great acclaim from all those who’ve been waiting to be able to get their mitts on man’s replacement for the dog.

On schedule, the device dropped earlier today online with all the features you could ever want from a tablet PC apart from it being able to actually walk your dog – that’s if you still even have one.

Online gaming companies will be excited at the prospect of the new device, if only for the sales that will bring more customers to their sites and especially the sports books who are likely to see betting jump.

Such has been the increase in size of the mobile gaming sector over the past year or so, the launch of the iPad will only increase the emphasis on companies to invest in this sector and reap the significant rewards on offer.

It’s likely that the European release date in around two weeks time is being anticipated a lot more eagerly by online gaming companies but this is still a significant release.

It works by allowing bettors who place bets over £1 to stream live coverage of the event to their iPhone, after a deal was struck with Racing UK.

David Williams at Ladbrokes, said, “It’s a revolutionary offering. Those customers who aren’t lucky enough to be at the races can join in the fun – and their bosses will be none the wiser.”

The boss will surely be wondering why everyone in the office is crowded round an iPhone on Gold Cup day though? If not they’d be some boss!
