    Do you think that Apple will include a rotation lock switch like the iPad has on the iPod touch 4th generation? I think it would be very useful, especially since Apple can't quite seem to find a way to implement horizontal rotation lock in iOS 4.

    Yeah, I use it, but it is pretty annoying. I think it's just because they haven't found a good way to make a horizontal task switcher, or whatever. You know Apple.

    I hope iOS 4 brings that. Along with many other things.

    It would be nice for iOS4.1 to include official springboard rotation. As the jailbreak community have had it for a little while now, it's only a matter of time until Apple decide to claim ownership of the idea and use it...
    Anyway, a physical switch on the iPodtouch 4th gen would be a good idea IF they implemented this feature as the current software option on the multitask bar does a pretty good job in my opinion.
