Is there a possibility in iPad to bookmark a webpage to home screen like you can in iPhone? And is the browser full screen when launching from home screen bookmark?

And does http://jqtouch.com/preview/demos/main/#home work just like it does in iPhone?

Yes you can.
No it's not full screen, it's inside the browser.
Seems like almost all of that stuff works in my brief test.

Ok, cool. Just to clarify that it doesn't go fullscreen when you bookmark it to home screen and start it from there? Because in iPhone it shows the webpage in fullscreen when you use homescreen bookmark to start it but you can't get fullscreen when you use Safari to access the same website.

Really? Weird. Not on my iPhone. Or pad for that matter.

Aah, it doesn't seem to work with "normal" websites so it's a javascript trick. Try http://www.jqtouch.com/preview/demos/main/#home and bookmark that to homescreen. I just tested and it works fullscreen with nice loading page on my 3.0.2 iPhone.
