Well, if it has the same serious security flaws as the iPhone, I imagine it will be used for ID theft and other nefarious purposes - just not by the owners...

Eastern European hackers rejoice: the iPad is here!
The only sucessful hacks in the wild for iPhone OS-based devices are based on a vulnerability created by jailbreaking the phone/device and not changing the root password. That's hardly Apple's fault and it's more than a little disingenuous on your part to portray it otherwise. Android, on the other hand, has actually suffered a legtimate phishing attack from its own Android Store, the fault for which lies entirely at Google's feet due to their hands-off policy on apps published to the store.
