No way they eliminate the home button on the iPhone for a five finger swipe (not saying they won't eliminate it). Way too clunky/difficult. C'mon folks, when has Apple made any UI difficult in any respect? Won't happen on the phone. iPad maybe, since its a two handed or lap device anyway.
And MMi has yet to mention the iPhone 4,1 and 4,2 (iPhone 5 GSM and CDMA versions) device models that are showing up in 4.3. There is also a 3,3 which would indicate a third variation of the iPhone 4. Interesting stuff in this beta.

If they remove the home button or any other button for that matter, there still needs to be a method of hard-resetting your device. Sometimes things freeze, even iPhones and iPads and need to be rebooted.
I personally would like the home button to stay. Physical buttons are, and always will be, more reliable than "virtual" buttons.

I love it. I'm always getting confuse with the home button at lease in my iPad. Look for 2013 iPad project and you see there is no home button and the iPad screen will be fill to the corners.

I see some "borrowing" from webOS multitasking here. Just like RIM stole it with the playbook. Not cool apple. I hope HP sues both of them. But I have to say, this will be interesting to use.

like most, i use my iphone with one hand, only time i bring in the other is when i need to type a long message or when i'm jailbreaking. i think its another way for Apple to rid of jailbreaking. but it does look impressive on the iPad. i always use both hands when i'm using my iPad, so its more ideal for that device than its smaller version (iPhone).Blah Blah and Blah

If Apple gets rid of the home button then I'm going to Android.
I very much like this, but I'd like it to stay as an OPTION. I can almost guarantee that Apple will not actually completely take away the home button, especially not on an iPhone. Even they are smart enough not to do this.
That video is very impressive....I just don't want it to be my ONLY way of getting to the home screen.
If this is going to be for the next generation of iPhones, then I would expect it to be a feature of iOS 5, not 4.3God Bless

What happens if you were a stupid kid in your younger years and you don't have all 10 digits?

The finger swiping works really well. It really seems natural when navigating the OS

Oh no! What if the user lost one of their fingers or doesn't have a thumb, etc etc.. That's gonna suck for them.

Another jailbreak software Apple have stolen. Activator anyone...
Can they stop stealing Jailbreak features and just fix the current bugs?
It's nice to have those features as standard but I would expect them to not think they thought of it first. But its crApple, they steal everything then put their big fat logo on it and try to pass it off as their idea.
