    I haven't read anywhere that the iPad will have the ability to manage several user profiles. Anyone know if this is coming?

    I kind of doubt there will be multiple profiles. Like the iPhone, one user - one profile.

    There was speculation before the keynote about facial recognition enabling multiple user profiles, but that's about as far as it ever went.

    So ... no :apple:

    User Switching or Profiles would be kind of cool since my wife wants to get an ipad for the family (Me, Wife, and Kid). That way all of us have our own unique wallpapers and pages with our apps.

    Here is a jailbreak application that is about to come out that supports multiple users/accounts on iPad, with all features (web/applications/settings/etc): http://nowsci.com/news/20110301/user-profiles-for-ipad-user-switching-and-account-support-for-ios/

    I can see how it would be useful for the iPad. Not so much for the iPhone.

    Nothing has been announced.

    If they do add something like that, it would likely be an iOS5 feature.
