I have a few questions regarding development for iPad in Delphi Prism.
- Do I need Novell Monotouch as well?
- Do I have access to the same features / performance as I would using the native C based development tool?
- Would it be feasible to convert a Delphi Windows game to iPad?
- Is there sufficient documentation available to start developing for the iPad?

What other platforms can I make applications for with Prism? Android?

Yes


- Do I have access to the same features / performance as I would using the native C based development tool?

Not All of them


- Would it be feasible to convert a Delphi Windows game to iPad?
No. Except if your game is programmed in Pure OpenGL so with a few modifications...

- Is there sufficient documentation available to start developing for the iPad?
Yes and No...

What other platforms can I make applications for with Prism? Android?
I don't know...

If you would like more information about developing for the iPad using Delphi Prism I'd check out Dr. Bob's site for more information. He had a workshop not long ago all about this. More information is available here http://www.pascalgamedevelopment.com/content.php?151-Delphi-iPhone-Workshop-by-Dr.-Bob and here http://www.pascalgamedevelopment.com/content.php?164-Tech-Paper-Developing-iPhone-with-Delphi-Prism-XE.

Also when RemObjects gets their Cooper (http://www.pascalgamedevelopment.com/content.php?171-RemObjects-Shows-Off-Cooper) compiler rolling you'll be able to use the exact same Object Pascal dialect for your .NET stuff on the Java-based Android platform too.
