What that could mean to the end user is things like:
-- quickly creating iMovies on an iPad
-- AirPlay HD from an iDevice to an ATV or to another iDevice
-- See the AirPlay video on both the sending and receiving devices
-- Keynote presos from the iPad to ATV/HDTV -- multiple mirrored displays
-- Screen Sharing / BackToMyMac to/from iPad
-- collaboration among multiple iPads
-- more robust bg task postings - similar to widgets home screen on JailBroken or Android
-- CAD, Pro Apps on the iPad
-- "bettery battery"
The iPad is underpowered for it's screen size -- it could do much more with the above hardware.
The smaller screen would limit the need for this on an iPhone or Touch.
