Yep, that's the main thing the iPad announcement has done for me--get me stoked to see what else comes out.
They set the bar high IMO with the form factor, battery life and $500 starting price, so I can't wait to see what else comes out.

I agree that the prospect of the new tablets that will be created as a result of the iPad is the best thing about the iPad.
I do not agree that a tablet computer will never replace a netbook. In fact, I want a netbook in tablet format. My Samsung netbook is perfect, but is not the right form factor. Give me a netbook with no keyboard and with multi-touch please! Current battery life on my Samsung is about 7.5 hours, this is perfectly fine for me.
