iPad provides me with a .5" thick package to provide audio, video, books, newspapers, and magazines when I travel. I can use the device to display tear sheets on my products. I can set it up to display a presentation at trade shows using battery power for 10 hours. I can't imagine a better device to access the web on an airplane. Give the device a plastic pointed pen and a program where I can take handwritten notes and drawings and it will be almost perfect. Sure a camera would be great ( include a front facing camera on the next iPhone for video conference please!), sd memory great, and a USB slot great. But at $500 with 16gig it is a travelers dream. Suck down a movie or book off iTunes on the way to your next flight. I have carried 3 magazines and 3 books on planes before. Backlit makes it just so much better than a Kindle. iWork for $30 wow. Give me an cable to plug into vga to display a presentation and I just might leave my laptop at home on over nighters (for me, that could be a stretch). Add a fully functional PDF viewer, where I can add text, signatures and flatten the file, this will be huge. iPad with iPhone will be powerful. I do need to be able to tether, even if it cost $$$. Don't kid yourself, iPad can be the laptop killer in a couple of years Office, Internet, Exchange connectivity, and personal content in that package is a winner, a big winner. The anchor around Apple's neck right now is tethering to the iPhone. This HAS to be coming. In my view, this is the iPhone's biggest negative. Background: I am a 51 year old executive. 30 years ago I was as geeky as any current 20 year old posting here. I am not a CS or network expert . I was a long term PC guy who could use a Mac. 2 years ago I went Mac all the way. I run a small company, manage our network, buy hardware and software, travel and work all the damn time. Give me my iPad, quick. I will sell the hell out of them for you.
