    Hey everyone. I don't know a whole lot about iPads and I haven't seen a thread on this yet, so I just wanted to throw this out there. I thought all non-jailbroken iOS devices could only have four icons in the dock. When I was watching Steve's keynote today and he was showing off iOS 4.2 on the iPad, he created a folder of news apps. Then, real quick at the end of the demo, he said "and I can drag my folder down to my dock to" and he put it right in the middle of the four apps that were already down there, making five icons in the bottom dock.

    Can the iPad already have more than four icons in the dock, is was this a new 4.2 feature that Jobs showed off but didn't mention specifically?
