The iPad snagged a starring role in an episode of "Modern Family" on the brink of the tablet computer's retail debut.

Apple's latest device figured prominently in Wednesday's episode of the ABC series as a sought-after birthday gift for one of the characters. The iPad goes on sale at Apple stores Saturday.

Walt Disney Co., ABC's parent company, announced Thursday that it would offer applications for all its businesses on the iPad. About 20 ABC series will be available to iPad users through a Wi-Fi connection, the company said.
