I see that there is no flash support, but since Safari supports HTML5 I suppose that will allow it to view youtube, hulu, etc. If not then this thing isn't worth $300, let alone the likely $800-1000 that Apple will most likely charge.

No, no, it's fine. You browse the Interblag on the iPad.

The iPhone and iPod Touch don't support Flash either yet they have a native YouTube application for such things.

This isn't targeted for people who want to do nothing but sit and watch YouTube videos.

The Engadget comments of this iPad are hilarious. Apple iPad = fail sauce.

Starting at $499 and no flash for webpages, hell no.
