well there were sone moans from the audience as well as no clapping when there should of been. I think some of this was due to all the hype only to find out it was a locked down big iPod touch. Without handbrake, you cannot watch movies or tv shows download from the net and to the general consumer, that means no movies at all.
Then there's "...This is Steve Jobs most important work" only to find out the OS is the iPhone OS, lack of installing your own mac programs to being tied down to the app store, cost and another per month fee and we know that 3G is slowly compared to the web. Had they allowed codecs like mpeg, avi, xvid, offered free 3g to iPhone customer and a lack of negative press (google, there is quite a bit, one in particular that spoke about how some netbooks were cheaper and much more powerful), I think the ipad would have been better received.
All this AT&T, app store, paid 3G ( not that fast ), price, no stylus, no flash for 75% of all web, 100% for all network /cable television, this turned out to not be Job's most important work at all. If Jobs made the white MacBook $500, the ipad would never sell.
