Really... if you boil it all down

it seems the iPad's main utility for photographers is as a selling agent of one's work in an electronic portfolio. It doesn't really contribute in any unique way to actually improved photography, composition, postproduction, technique, etc.. but rather furthers the business of photography thru increased sales.

At least from what I've read above, nobody who likes their iPad, is saying its actually due to some specific app that they couldn't do without and that helps them take better pictures. The folks who don't see the utility of an iPad, presumably aren't in a position where they need to bring a portable electronic portfolio on the road with them that can be continually displayed for 10 hours before a battery recharge is possible.
