    While watching the press conference, I couldn't help but notice a small button next to the slider on the wake screen of the iPad. Here is the best picture I could find on Apple's Website:

    Any idea on what that button does? Just curious. :D

    I believe it's simply a lock sign showing that the device is locked.

    It turns your iPad into "Picture Frame Mode" which displays your photos like those digital picture frames do.

    I'm not so sure. Looks more like a square to me, and they already have lock icon on the very top bar like the iPhone/iPod Touch.

    Steve mentions it in the keynote. He said something about having it display your slideshows while your iPad is charging.

    Oh. That's interesting. I wonder why they decided to put it there on not just in the Photos app.
