It’s a perfect media consumption device, and Steve Jobs himself has said it’s the “best way to surf the Net.” It’s easy to use, has a fabulously simple user interface, an excellent screen, good battery life, and jaunty responsiveness. Not likely in the form of apps–Apple’s always maintained a fairly stiff line on adult content in the app store, and has recently gone on a highly puritanical purge to remove apps that are even mildly suggestive, resulting in over 5,000 apps being ditched from the app store.But the mobile Internet is one of the i Pad’s biggest selling points. The i Phone’s led the way here, with many Web sites delivering porn photos and videos in a format compatible with the devices’ Mobile Safari browser.One of the first popular uses of the printing press was to publish pornographic writing and imagery.Today it’s a multi-billion dollar industry powered by the human psyche and high technology.Porn–in whatever format–will hardly be the sole driver of i Pad success. The i Pad is a perfect device for a spot of pink-pixel surfing.But when it becomes clear just how much people are enjoying their new Apple tablet computer, its ease of use and its go-anywhere Internet convenience, the word of mouth effect will kick in. Take solace in the millions of dollars that’ll roll in to Apple from device sales.Mainstream media companies aren’t the only ones gearing up for the launch of the i Pad this Saturday.i Pad users will also soon have access to plenty of porn optimized for Apple’s (s AAPL) touch-screen device, thanks to a number of studios working feverishly on converting their catalogs over and optimizing existing mobile offerings.
