    I have been out of the loop on the iPad updates,  news, etc. Do we have a date of when we will see ios4.2 for iPad? I thought I heard something this summer saying "Fall" or November?
    Thanks.

    In terms of corporations, the 30th is still November ;)
    That's how it's played at my company.
    But maybe apple is a little more consumer friendly :)

    It's a bit slack to be honest. Taking this long to get multitasking out for iPad is ridiculous. My iphone has had it for a while now.

    The iPhone has been out a lot longer than the iPad.

    Take longer means less bugs which means less fixes which means happier people.

    When it comes to software and especially operating systems, I would rather the developers take the extra time.

    I have noticed (as a developer myself) the people screaming for the updates to come out early are also the first in line to complain when the early release doesn't work 100%.

    Remember, while the iPad is BASED off the iPhone's OS, it is a different animal that has a lot of rewritten code to cover the new hardware in the iPad.

    Relax, the update will come. Besides, how many of the "I want it now" crowd will be screaming for the JB the day after iOS4 for iPad is released...

    Actually, I tend to agree with this. Multitasking should have come with the original OS.

    Having said that however I'm still quite pleased with the current OS. When the new one comes out if it has multitasking that will be great. I can wait on it.

    Not being able to create folders is a pain. You're all right about being less buggy with proper development. It's not as if the release of the iPad was a shock to Apple? I just thought they'd have made sure it all worked at least as good as the iPhone. I was surprised yesterday when I started up the brand new iPad and the version was 3.2.2 Is that really the latest version?

    Yes it is. With the ipad apple skips all other 4.x versions and directly jumps to 4.2
    I really miss the iPhone style features. I'm using categories and for multitasking proswitcher but I'm hoping 4.2 will be out soon in November.
