No, but Apple's ability to merge both is unchallenged, IMO.

I'm a techie/geek and I agree with the person that said the iPad isn't meant to be a full fledged computer or even a network... it's an internet appliance. If you keep that in mind, it really makes a big difference and why it gets the "i" designation instead of being called the Macbook Slate or Macbook Tablet or something. Even though I'm a hardcore tech, I appreciate a simple, device that is reliable and does certain tasks well. I also agree with the person that said full fledged computers are really becoming more niche devices for the majority of the population. Sometimes its the simplicity that makes something so beautiful.

Apple always looks to be different and innovative.
I think everyone has copied apple now and everyone looks like an iphone or iphone OS. If the ipad could have some sort of expose' feature to tab select apps multi tasking wise this would be great. Having iworks and even adobe apps made for this device would be a good strength that Android cant compete with. Open Source world has no Adobe, Apple or MS apps only imitation watered down crap.
