    I'm insanely excited, especially if that screen is for real... Which I'm sure it is!

    A retina screened iPad, pure gadget bliss.

    The icons are a bit too close to be in landscape mode. I think it won't have a home button! Apples always hated buttons. I can't wait, already had asked off for the 7th a week ago and will be lining up on release day to be first!

    Not to give in to TOO much speculation, but, this particular iPad also has Maps, Calender AND the Keynotes app on the dock... Not the typical apps you would throw down there. Possibly they have it in landscape, and just have the dock stacked full... Hence the closer than normal icons.

    Just pure speculation.

    BUT, if it truly doesn't have the home button anymore, that would definitely tie in with the "And touch" line at the end, there... Possibly hinting at a touch sensitive bezel?

    Again, just pure speculation...

    With that said, I would rather have home button. Lol.

    I cant wait super excited!! Hopefully with the rumor that the device is already shipping that would say that the release date will be soon after the 7th an likely mean no pre sale. When the 4S was releaed the pre sales the devices came direct from China so if they are already on way likely would mean only in stores on release day.

    It's fine you are giving your opinion. lol And perhaps, just perhaps there are more than one and one doesn't have a home button...

    (Okay, I'm just messing around.)

    I thought so. I don't see Apple doing away with the home button just yet.

    Personally I do think it will have a home button, (maybe a place on the bezel that you touch) but on the iPad 2 the home button is completely optional at this point. You can use the sleep/wake button to wake up the iPad instead of the home button, and everything else is done with gestures. Closing an app, multi-tasking, etc. all have gestures in place already. The only thing you can't do is access DFU mode which I'm sure they can do in some other way.

    I sold my iPad 2 3G/wifi last week for 550. I got an email from the buyer this afternoon wanting 75 dollars back because the new 3 will be unveiled next week. I lol'd.

    That would be awesome if they did away with the home button, on the iPhone too..

    That's a shame, hopefully they'll up the quality so half of them don't stop working within a month this time.

    That's the one area where Apple really penny pinched. Although I'd say the iPhone has less available space and is more in need of going button less, I never thought Google would beat em to a button less phone.

    And there's undeniable proof of the retina screen for the naysayers.

    And seriously now, let me be clear - the device I've seen had a home button but that was a ways back and it was in a case so the only obvious change I could notice was the screen. So you can say they omitted the home button but I really think that would be doubtful.
