On the other hand, Jonathan Geller reports:
Our source said Apple employees are already testing iPads and
iPhones with no home buttons on the Apple campus, and it’s
possible we will see this new change materialize with the
next-generation iPad and iPhone devices set to launch this year.
We’ll see, I guess. How in the world would you get home on an iPhone using a five-finger pinch while holding it in one hand? The iPad seems like a “maybe”, but I find it really hard to imagine a Home-button-less iPhone. And even with the iPad, what about people who don’t have five fingers on one hand? No iPad for them? The iPad is very popular with impaired users. What about taking screenshots?
