Regarding the no jailbreak option

I'm not sure how that would work for me.

It doesn't solve the ability to store the video taken from the camcorder somewhere and unlike the GoFlex, which streams the video from the HDD to the iPad, you would need to copy the files to the iPad, which means you need space on your iPad, before you can play them and you would need the direct copy feature of the camcorder to copy the files to the correct folder in the correct format.
