IPad syncing as iPhone

Advertisement
I bought the keyboard/dock combo last night, everything was working fine, and then this morning when I connected the USB cable to my macbook pro my iPad showed up in iTunes as an iPhone and removed a bunch of my iPad-only apps. I pulled it off the dock and then reseated it, and then it put everything back on the iPad.
Anyone else experience this?
