Steve Jobs has been on a user email rampage of late.  Its gotten to the point that it has become a new means of controlled leaks and communication for Apple as a company.  See previous here, here, here.

The latest emails, sent from his iPad Build 7B359, say that there will be a way to import docs (from iDisk or iWork.com) into iWork on the iPad and the iPad/iPod/iPhone’s Mail.app will eventually have Universal inbox functionality (via TUAW).  

Universal inbox functionality is something we’ve been really hoping for, but it is unlikely to be in 3.2 as that’s mostly an incremental update and and a Mail.app rewrite would seem to indicate a new version of the OS.  We’re holding out hope however, that we’ll see it in 3.2.

It would also appear that Steve Jobs is not an early adopter.  Build 7B359 one build behind the current iPad 3.2 beta 5 build.
