    Q: Will iPad’s success impact its international launch?

    Steve: No, we said we’re launching internationally later in April, and we’re launching later in April,

    Unless I missed something about ad requirements in the presentation, I'm worried that there will be lazy developers out there who'll just go the in-app ad option and not provide the paid ad-free alternative.

    Customers & developers - shitty developers will do shitty things. An app like Things, or the paid version of Tweetie or Instapaper - would they really put ads in their app?

    Yes, because a smartphone operating system preview would naturally include a notebook refresh announcement.

    Yep, like they were going to announce their local release date and local pricing for every model in the line up...... for 50 different countries....

    Interesting:

    11:23AM - Steve: We do not have plans to be a worldwide ad agency. We don’t know a lot about advertising, but we’re learning. We tried to buy AdMob, but Google snatched them up because they didn’t want us to have them, so we bought another smaller company, Quattro. But we’re babes in the woods.
    11:22AM - They’re talking a lot more about iAd right now. Steve: “Why is this so different? These 185k apps don’t exist on computers. This is a new phenomenon, this is the first time this kind of thing has ever existed. We never had that on the desktop, so search was the only way to find a lot of things.” The man has a point, the web (and web ads) are the mechanism of choice on PCs.

    50 different countries? I would have expected them to group Continents... 'i.e. Europe and Australia go on sale April ......"

    “There was no decision to make as far as multitasking. Some of the earlier hardware can’t support multitasking at all.” – Jobs
    Pretty much expected.

    Those were done with help from their advertising agency.

    I doubt that will be the case, and ads in phone apps are not hard to implement currently. Shit apps will over do it, but people just won't use them.
