According to that link, all the sites listed on that page are already serving their multimedia content to iPad users via HTML5. Sounds like implementation is already happening, and was driven by the iPad launch.
IMHO, the iPad could potentially have a major effect on pushing HTML5 into the market quickly. I believe there were around 300k sold on the first day, and that was a US-only launch, not including the 3G model. If that product continues to move well (and I think it will), I think it will have a huge effect on the large/popular sites implementing HTML5 versions of their sites in the near future.
