where to with the iPad

Unbelievably apple.com pointed to a review by engadget of the new iPad. Unbelievably, because the reviews by engadget (who are normally Apple-friendly) are not enthusiastic. They correctly (unlike journalists) mention it is a super-sized iPod touch rather than the iPhone, and mention the lack of video, multi-tasking and Flash. I am not convinced HTML 5 will replace Flash and there does seem to be a great opportunity missed of a portable video conferencing tool.  However the future potential, as a designer tablet, multi camera collaborative video tool and overly expensive (not fragile?) game controller and Augmented Reality item tray have great promise.
