    I don't think so just like the ipod touch, since there's no actual need for it I don't think it does it

    I can't imagine why it would need to vibrate
    But, I can't say it is completely out of the realm of possibility either

    OP, why do YOU want it to vibrate?
    Just curious

    Push notifications and alarms. Games. Haptic key feedback. I even have an iPhone comic book that can be set to vibrate when there is a big "BANG!" in the story.

    That is possible I suppose
    I wouldn't rule it out

    It will be interesting to see, because of the hybrid nature of the iPad
    My MBP doesn't vibrate on push notifications
    But my iPhone does
    Hmmmm

    I am not sure I would want my iPad to vibrate
    But I would assume it would be a setting if it does

    since when has the iphone or touch had haptic feedback? I'll take Flash and multitasking over these products giving me the tingles.

    Well that isn't an option is it... Flash and multitasking
    The OP isn't requesting a feature, just asking if is already there or not

    It's a jailbreak mod. It's one of the neat things that the JB community has come up with that I wish Apple would implement in the official OS.

    It does have the silent switch on the side, so it's definitely possible. A lot of games use the vibration as feedback and it'd undoubtedly have its uses.

    It'd be great for typing on the keyboard. Also, don't a lot of iphone games support it?

    So you're expecting to carry the iPad around your waist or something so you feel it?

    I think most people will have the iPad on a table or docked most of the time and will hear notifications and alarms over the speaker.

    from Mr. Mom, the quote was "220, 221, whatever it takes".

    Unfortunately, I'm not "most people," I have a severe hearing loss, so I don't hear most notifications and alarms through the tinny iPhone speakers. I don't know if the iPad's speakers are louder than the iPhones, but having a "vibrate to notify" option gives me more peace of mind, especially since if the vibrate can be set "loud" enough, I can feel it through a table or the floor. Hm, I should probably write Apple and suggest this as an accessibility feature. ;)

    Are there games that use vibration as an effect?

    Yes there are. For example, Eliminate Pro: When you get shot, your iPhone vibrates to alert you that you're losing energy.

    I think vibration would be a useful feature for the iPad.

    If you were using it somewhere quiet and you needed to put the volume to mute, the vibration could alert you to a new email, for example.

    The fact that it's not specifically mentioned some place makes me doubt it exists. That sort of sucks.
