I guess it was inevitable. HTPC builders are now bundling iPads with their high-end HTPC systems (I’m sure that’s making Microsoft happy). If you jump over to okoromedia.com, you can now purchase the companies latest GX Media Server HTPC with a bundled iPad and a custom app (not sure if looks as good as VidaBox’s) for multi-room audio management, Internet radio access, and Windows Media Center control. No word if the iPad can be removed from the cart, in case you already own an iPad. However, Okoro is probably figuring: if you’re going to spend $5,000+ on a one of our system, have another iPad on us.
