iOS4.3 with multi-touch gestures may lead to omission of Home button in iDevices
In the past, there have been talks about the very unergonomic button that the iPhone and the iPad sport. However, the recent iOS4.3 leak that mentioned gesture controls may lead to the complete omission of the button from the said devices, in the not-so-far future. Now the debate remains as to whether this omission will lead to harder controls or will it make an ordinary iPerson’s iLife any simpler.
Also, how familiar are people with this new input mechanism? Time and Apple will tell.
