Integrating iPhone's applications on the iPad is a visionary idea. iPad (or atleast its clones) is here to stay. iPad is more of a "application consuming gadget" more than a "application developing gadget". So you will still have your laptop, but you will have a networked gadget.
The best is that it is powered by 3G(what we are working on ;-) ). 3G and LTE are technologies which are just PERFECT access technologies for this. Because there is limited browsing which you can do with a Mobile Phone.

Does anyone have any other opinion ? I have read a couple of news sites and I like the concept. But not sure until someone has really used this gadget.
