    I remember being included in a beta a while back, will the new one have it?

    Edit: or should I say does the new iOS have it

    It's on the iPad 2 so I think the new one will have them, I don't see why it wouldn't.
    Actually one gesture is in the tv ad, so yes it will ;)

    I thought it never officially came out, is there a legit option in settings or somewhere in IOS 5.1 to enable it for iPad 2? If so then it for sure has to have it.

    I had it enabled on my iPad 2 even before iOS 5.1. It's in Settings. Not jailbroken or anything. Anyone can use it.

    Go to settings/general and scroll almost all the way to the bottom...turn on "multitasking gestures"

    Do you mean the swipe gestures inside Safari to go forward/back pages (like you can do in OS X) ?

    No. These gestures allow you to navigate the iPad without using the home button. You can open the multitasking tray, move between apps, and close apps with gestures.

    Check out this video for demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sH-ki33si-Y

    If i could enable it with my 1st gen iPad, i'd bet a good money that gestures were present in 3rd gen iPad.

    If you want browser gestures, then Terra (free) has them. It's a decent alternative to Safari.
