No Need To Panic Yet: Key Gesture Feature in iOS 5 Not Available For iPad

The iPad usher in the post-PC era for Apple and the iPad 2 pretty much put an exclamation point on that.  Back in April of 2010, the iPad launched with iOS 3.  It was not until November that we finally were graced with iOS 4 on the iPad.  And now, with iOS 5 not even out, we still expect the iPad to enjoy every single feature of Apple's latest iOS.

However, developers are claiming that the gesture feature is not available on the iPad.  If true and this feature does not return this fall when the final version of iOS 5 is released, it means that less than a year after the iPad got the iOS 4, it is pretty much outdated as far as iOS features goes.  

That kinda sucks to me if you think about it.  So I don't think it's time for us to panic just yet.  The feature might return when iOS 5 finally ships.  A few months back, a beta version of iOS 4.3 included gesture that worked well on the iPad.  So if there is any kind of a limitation, it would be an artificial one placed on the iOS by Apple.  

And what of iPhone 4 and the latest iPod touch? I don't see why don't get gestures as well.
