    I still have a few lingering questions after the event:

    Will the original iPad still support HDMI out?
    -No one seems to be saying.

    Will video mirroring out work with the original iPad? over VGA? or HDMI?
    -This is a pretty big deal for me, apple would really be screwing its early adopters over if OS 4.3 didn't support this. at the same time its a genius idea to sell new ones.

    Will my Unlimited data plan be discontinued if I want to use the mobile hotspot?
    -I have reason to believe that AT&T will be screwing a lot of people over this. Early adopters will finally have to end their unlimited plans to do mobile hotspot.

    I believe iPad 1 has HDMI video out only
    Mirroring on iPad 2 only
    And hotspot will dump your unlimited plan

    See http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC953ZM/A for more info.

    Seems pretty clear that mirroring and requires an ipad2. The iPad1 supports slideshows and movies at up to 720p.

    To use the mobile hotspot feature you must switch to the Data Pro + Tethering plan, thereby abandoning your Unlimited plan.
