    Why is apple releasing 4.0 for the ipad much later than the iPhone?

    Hopefully it's because it will be totally different.

    I really hope so. I don't like that this sexy beast is running the same OS as the iPhone.

    Believe it or not, they know what they are doing. Their success is the proof. I hope they give the developers plenty of time so we get a super stable and useful OS.

    As said above apple delivers After developers and beta tests are final it's like baking a cake you have to wait to get the finished product. Apple just wants to put the creme on it before you taste it

    Apple will not let you down oh they will time it to have maximum benifit to the stock quarter figures so I say early September

    I'm happy with the workings of the iPad right now. Any improvements will be welcome, but I'm not waiting for them as obsessively asidid the 3G release.

    I love this thing. I know apple is very sucessful. Specific dates would be nice. But remember the "30days and 90 days" for the ipad and 3g respectively? They weren't on time. So I guess when they are done it'll be ours. I can't wait

    What we need is multi-tasking, and I am hoping that we get that just like the iPhone users.

    The iPad already has features not on the iPhone which gets those with 4.0. And waiting for 4.0 does not preclude Apple coming out with 3.3 with features like multitasking.

    I too am hoping that os4 will be a different beast then for the. I'd much rather wait for a richer experience then settle for a scaled up version.

    I bet it will be available by Sept. Just in time for school to start and all the college kids to jump into their classrooms with the latest Apple toy!
