I'd worry a lot more about GUI and applications than about any bit
of hardware. Pads in one form or another have been around for a
long time. So far, they weren't particularly successful.

The promise of the pad is basically that there are many tasks,
either new but useful (and beyond what a smartphone could do) or
traditionally requiring a laptop, that can be formulated such that
all the interaction they require are a few taps and drags.

Maybe the iPad will be able to do this. Maybe not. We'll see.
