iPad: catch the Wave and you

According to the Google Wave site, “Google Wave is an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.”

After beta testing Google Wave, I feel it is missing something, the iPad. First, the screen real estate needed to effectively use Google Wave is bigger than you get on a smart phone. Second, a laptop is too hard to pass around a conference table. When you further consider Google’s and Apple’s mutual commitment to HTML5, It isn’t hard to imagine the future of highly interactive communication playing out on the newest paradigm in computing, the iPad.
