It makes me wonder if there is a monetary strategy to waiting a couple of months to release the iPad version 4 of the OS. I can't think of any reason why it would take longer to release the iPad version unless A) like fury mentioned... maybe there will be added functionality... or B) they think an iPad with similar hardware and software would eat into the sales of the iPhone HD this summer so if they wait a couple of months to release the software for the OS then they might get more iPhone sales. That is my theory. I'll be getting the new iPhone anyways so it kinda bums me out that I have to wait on the iPad.
Do you think the iPad could affect iPhone sales? They are so different as devices go.
I wonder if the delay is due to them putting in print support. Not needed in iPhone or Touch apps, but probably needs some OS tweaking still to make it work for the iPad. One thing about Apple is that when they put their minds to it, more often than not, they make a totally elegant means of doing things. Maybe this will be one of those to go with their folders and multi-tasking in 4.0.
i thought the 4.0 update is gonna be only on the iphone/itouch. no?
iPhone and ITouch for the summer, iPad for the "Fall".
4.0 may be out just in time for the next generation of iPads.
