I doubt that we will see anytime soon an iPad with sufficient storage and processing power to run a local copy of Mathematica; though surely Real Soon Now (if not already available) there are clients that can be run on an iPad to call a remote kernel. More and more people seem to want me to use Google Docs rather than MS Office (or equivalent) on my laptop.

I think the iPad has a wee bit more processing power, memory, and storage than those machines, so I'm skeptical of claims that it can't run a local copy of Mathematica (or Matlab, or …). Maybe it can't run the desktop version with exactly the same performance, but it's certainly capable of running a very useful local version.
