Why No iOS 4 Goodies For iPad Until November

I had assumed when the iPhone 4 was introduced, we would see iOS 4 for the iPad as well. When that didn't happen, I chuckled to myself and said well, it's gotta be in September when Apple refreshed the iPod line.

Obviously, that didn't happen and now we are forced to wait until November for iPad to get up to speed with the rest of the iOS devices.

And now, we are hearing Apple giving developers the beta version of iOS 4.2 a long with some sought after features like wireless printing.

But I wonder if there might be other interesting features that Apple failed to mention and instead decided to wait until all is baked. And why give away too much when it is locked in an epic battle with Google's Android and soon Windows Phone 7?

This isn't just wishful thinking on my part to rationalize the two months wait. Apple is telling folks they have to use the latest unreleased Mac OS beta as well. I don't know what that means but iOS users with Macs might get a leg up on those without it.

We'll see in November.
