    The new iPad can import, play and edit full 1080P Canon 5D II video.

    Being able to edit those in iMovie is very impressive,
    they can bring many PC's to a slowdown, but edit smoothly on the iPad.

    A 35 sec video took only about 45 secs to render with cuts and titles to 1080P as well

    Wow, that's pretty impressive for a $499 handheld device, try that on a Android.

    I used the camera connection kit SD adapter, just made
    folder on the SD card and copied the videos to that directory
    using the original camera file name format,
    example VID_0001.MOV , VID_0002.MOV, etc

    I'm sure a high-end Android competitor would do just as well with 1080p files given the fact this smoothness you're talking about is enabled by special decoding hardware on the processor itself. Things might render even faster on A quad-core tablet like the Transformer Prime.

    This has been in existence since the iPad 1. They naturally can get imported onto an iPad for editing or viewing. Anyone with a 1DX can do even better video and use the iPad to do initial cuts. How's that for workflow?
