Do the iPadís missing apps point to a multitasking dashboard?

Far more interesting though are the simple apps that are missing from the promotional materials: Stocks, Weather, Voice Memo, Clock, and Calculator. With the exception of Voice Memo these are all basic apps that have been staples from the very beginning, and it makes no sense that they wouldn’t be on the iPad, so why are they absent? I see two options, one of which is far, far more interesting than the other.

These apps are missing from the launchpad because they’re no longer apps. They’re dashboard widgets. (interesting)

Not sure if its true, but the home screen did look oddly..sparse.
(Also, the demos showed the home row with the classic iPhone/Touch 4 icons-my understanding is the actual SDK Simulator shows 6 icons)
