All images sized 1024x1024
The very first Apple Computer logo was drawn by Ronald Wayne, and depicted Isaac Newton under an apple tree. The original rainbow Apple logo was created in 1977 by Rob Janoff. The logo was used until 1998, when Steve Jobs, wanting simplicity in the companies products, elected to use the single color logo.
Though both iPad and iPad2 have 1024x768 screen size, likelihood is you aren't going to hold the screen in the same horizontal position everytime, therefore an image sized 1024x1024 is ideal, allowing it to be "rotated" without changing the image aspect.
