Will probably be looking at an iPod Touch instead of the iPad myself. If I wanted a larger screen, I'd probably be looking at a real netbook. After all, all the iPad is, is just an overgrown iPod Touch, there's nothing that sets the two apart, that I can tell, other than the screen size.
Also, for that same price tag, I saw that Amazon was selling a nice 10.1" Lenovo IdeaPad with 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD, and it's a tablet netbook, which, imo, may even do better than an iPad.
However, given the choice of an Apple products, if I want something that will do apps and MP3s, may as well go with the iPod Touch 3rd Gen, and have no regrets.
For the same price as an entry-level 16GB iPad, you could have a 64GB iPod Touch, and have a good speaker dock system on top of that.
