    It is a bit strange not to have a clock app on it. And you're right, a quick google search lists a fair few. No idea why they did not include one, maybe in the next update they will have it sorted, after all there is a lot about this issue around the internet.

    Probably the assumption was most people use an alarm clock or their phones for alarms. Especially since the iPad is large enough that it could be difficult to find a place for it on the average person's nightstand. At least there are plenty of alarm clock apps. I think it's better to leave something off and have an app for it if you want it. The less excess the better in my opinion.

    I picked up world clock $1.99
    The World Clock for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
    I like it because it has NTP synchronization along with a slick interface and alarms.

    Apple calls it a "third party opportunity." Maybe they just wanted to have others do it better than they could?

    Check out:

    Big Pocket Clock ($1)
    App Shopper: Big Pocket Clock for iPad (Utilities)

    Alarm Clock (free)
    Alarm Clock Free for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    Night Stand HD ($3)
    Night Stand HD | The Indispensable Clock for your iPhone and iPad

    Get yourself a nice case for your iPad that will allow it to stand up at the angle that you like, and any of the above will make a stunningly beautiful alarm clock!
