i use ps on a daily professional bases mainly for post image editing. so ps on a mobile device is something i personally wont be interested in when i can do so much more in ps on my desktop.
as for drawing and painting, as mentioned, apps like procreate, sketchbook pro, artrage, Auryn Ink etc etc are more suited for mobile art me thinks.
i dont think we're too far behind the day when the ipad can be used like a wacom. not yet tho.
Just an update. According to appshopper, procreate has gone down to £2.99 :)

most of the drawing of photoshop can be found in sketchbook pro and artstudio. I use both. The iPad is a very nice tool to incorporate into your workflow but not for replacing the major aspects of it. As for me, I cannot fully design on anything less than a dual screen or 22" monitor. that's why a laptop never worked for me.

Sometimes something on tv is what inspires you. You can quickly pull out your iPad and whip out a nice comp of your idea. Then transfer it to your desktop/laptop to finalize.
apparently now adobe photoshop touch has been introduced to the ipad market - not sure exactly what they were aiming the feature for- but cutting and pasting is not a crucial tool when editing a photo, let alone tonal adjustments- so the grand feature that TOUCH has brought to the table will not replace photoshop desktop even in it's simple use.
another thing I've noticed is that stylus' are praised for their usability for accurateness over using fingers - but since the screen is not pressure sensitive, it could never be used as effective as a true graphic tablet like a wacom cintiq - but if they could some how integrate pressure sensitivity and tracking from the screen to the pen and tablet combined- I'm sure it will be possible to use in the fashion Wacom users have come to enjoy.
it cracks me up that a wide variety of stylus claim to make things easier- like a brush?? I do understand it real relational use to a user, but it in no way reacts differently other than feel- same as with any stylus- it is just a replacement to the conductive fingertip- and it doesn't work at all for someone who rests their palm to write.... so when buying one- get the cheapest- they all function the same- unless you decide on an aPen set up
