    Is it just me or does it look weird with only 4 icons (like the touch) on the ipad dock?

    I hope to they change it so you can put 6 icons there, like a favorites dock. Similar to what you would find in OS X.

    Having only 4 there makes it look so spread out and if you turn it in landscape mode, it even looks more horrid. That's my 2 cents.

    I believe it was stated during the keynote that you could put up to 6 in the dock.

    For those too lazy to click:

    A reader has sent us the above screen shot. It clearly shows six application icons on the iPad dock.

    I was messing around with the iPad simulator, and I noticed that I could fit 6 icons in the dock. There was no modding involved. Since the iPad has a roomy screen, this could be very plausible. And since I am a jailbreak person, I know how uncommon this kind of thing is. But it goes along pretty well with Apple allowing the modification of the background.

    Given that the the iPad has a much larger screen, this would be expected. However, none of Apple's official shots of the devices shows six dock icons. With everything that's been leaking out from the dev SDK in the last two days, there are surely many more surprises to come.

    What about the non-dock icons? It seems like they are so spread out it looks so sparse.
