Will I replace the system in @Linuxcar with an iPad?

Some friends have been asking me if the iPad could eventually replace my custom made Linux multimedia car system.
I reckon that the screen is nice an all, but can the iPad …

– Take Skype phone calls
– Automatically pause live radio (not just mute) when a call comes in
– Update the twitter account @linuxcar with what ever it is doing
– Bring up my current location on Google maps
– Update my current location on the web
– Allow free WiFi in the car
– Allow any other web devices in the neighborhood to control the multimedia
– Allow for a remote system to use the web interface

… all at the same time? No? Well, there is your answer.
Now, an Android based system like this might do it…
