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.
The iPad will drive some sites to cobble together whatever they can in "HTML5" as a patch for iPad users... absolutely... ACTUAL implementation of HTML5 and resolution of the standard is being driven by Google more than ANYONE... It's still not "months" away unless 12-18 months is what you mean...
