    So now the iPad has confirmed background changing. And its running a version of iPhone OS. And therefore Springboard.. which means they have added this into springboard which should/could be implicated EASILY into the iphone/ipod touch firmware for 4.0. A lot of people jailbreak for themes, would probably put a lot of people off jailbreaking as apple trys to eliminate it and make it look like its only use is Piracy.

    3.2 will. The iPad may be the only one that has that. They might have put it there because of it's big screen and you don't want people saying "Wow dude that's an ugly background (black)!!".

    Yes but your average user dosnt know this. Being able to change the background would be "OMG THEME!!!" as it is with most phones just changing the colour tones.

    I think themeing will be great when it comes to the iPad, and its very possible that the 4.0 Update on the iPod&iPhone should come with customizable backgrounds since its available for the iPad.

    I think the only reason the iPad has background on the springboard is because the icons are spaced so far apart.
