I hope so too.I'd expect iOS 6 to move away from the pages of application icons in the current GUI and towards widgets and folders (without limits). Especially for the iPad.
And sure enough you received a -1… *sigh*Talk of widgets seems to get down votes on this forum, but I'm sure Apple will do it in a way that'll work well.
Jailbreak and use winterboard/dreamboard skins.I hope too there are widgets on the front screen, or at least the ability to add widgets to the notification screen as there is already with the Stock and weather ticker.
Widgets wouldn't be very hard - the same mechanism as OSX.
