i can't see why not..I have Canon, eye-fi and apple airport extreme...so long as I have power, I can create an ad-hoc network and shuttle my shots via the eye-fi card to my lap top.... granted it takes from 7-10 seconds for a jpeg (L) to make it there, but it works!

Right.... and according to John Cooper in a related thread, the markIII has native support for eyefi, which works very well indeed with Shuttersnitch/iPad.

The thing about iPad vs other tablets, is that because it has captured the large majority of market share, software developers are flocking to it, so increased availability for it to BE a very multi-purpose device. That justifies the cost, and makes it very desirable. Who knows what else we'll use it for by adding a low cost app in future.
