Will you be able to open the iPhone apps full screen by default, without always having to press the "times 2" button? Its not a big deal if your going to play a racing game for an hour, but if you just wanna jump in and check facebook or tweetie 2 for a second, pressing that times 2 button will get quite annoying!

I haven't seen any evidence either way but I would be amazed if the state of the "x2" button wasn't remembered.

I'm not sure of this, but I seem to remember from one of the hands on articles I read after the announcement that you could set it to save the state you were in, native resolution or 2x.

I really hope that is the case since you are right, if you are using an iphone app alot on the ipad, you wouldn't want to have to press 2x everytime you open it.

Also, I wonder why Apple even included the native resolution option, since I doubt anyone would use an iphone app without the 2x, since its so small!

Off topic but I have a feeling that Facebook iPad is going to be insanely awesome.

Don't hold your breath. The iPhone/iPod app still doesn't work correctly and the original developer has left the company.

I think given the iPad's screen size, I will just use the full-featured Facebook website instead of any app.

trust me, compared to the POS android version, it's a godsend.
