    I can see the Ipad having some business uses such as email and perhaps custom application use, perhaps product demonstration pictures and videos. I really don't see it as a serious business tool without being able to run Office however. Every company I deal with uses Office, and these are some of the largest corporations in the world. I also don't think I can log in to my company network much less map shared resources with the iPad, so even if I had Office I would have nothing to edit and nowhere to store anything. The only time I took my iPad to work was to show it off. Besides that it has absolutely no use to me as a business tool, it is simply an entertainment device (which is just fine with me).
