    I just spotted this over on 9to5 Mac


    Apple has informed developers that the shiny new Multi-Touch gestures for the iPad will not be launching in the public release of iOS 4.3. They say these gestures are simply a developer preview, for now, to see how they work with the iPad’s third-party-apps. iOS 5, perhaps?

    This feature will not be enabled in iOS 4.3 for customers, but we are providing this preview to gather input on how these gestures work with your apps.
    :(:(:(

    On a brighter note 4.3B2 was released

    That is good news....not bad. We never needed those gestures.

    Good Riddance.

    I have to agree with digikid. I dint see what this adds...I don't use fancy gesture in apps that offer a choice...keep it simple.

    I was hoping for the two finger swipe to multi task, instead of double clicking home button :(

    Those gestures were intended for an iPad that didn't have any buttons, so either the iPad2 will have them or we'll get thru a couple of more versions of iOS4 by its launch.

    Before using a Mac for the first time a year ago, I had no idea that I would like using the gestures so much that using a windows pad or mouse is just hard to do.

    Who knows what new things they are thinking up, I am certainly not going to say that I am not going to use new things because I am happy with what I am doing now. We would still be riding horse because why do we need a car??

    To me , the gestures make no much difference, just have Multi-Touch is OK.

    Have the standalone trackpad and find the gestures almost second nature now. They definitely have a future with tablets, but doubt they'll be in the next iteration.
    Probably intended for iOS 5.

    While it may seem so now, I think more options make for a more robust device with more possibilities....we'll see
