I'd be insanely surprised if they did, that'd be horrible.

I was surprised when they did it to the iPod Touch.

This is why operating systems have standards for their APIs (DirectX, OpenGL, Qt, GTK, etc. for graphics for instance). Any software written to meet those specs will operate on any hardware.

Software design has come to a point where it's simply too complicated to design things at such a low level anymore. It's simply not cost effective. Companies provide technologies that allow the developer to meet certain requirements, and the OS does the rest. It's not 1992, where software devs are coding games in ASM (like they did on the SNES).

Compared to other tablets that are out or coming out? Explain how those are advantages (that make it worthy of best Tablet of 2011) when other tablets are likely going to carry similar features for the most part.

Me too! However, the iPad is more family orientated and the wideviewing angles are much required -- they'd literally ruin it if they didn't use an IPS display (or a display with those kinds of viewing angles), and I believe they know that... fortunately =P

I'm not so much talking about the device, rather utilizing the screen space properly. I.E, arrangement of controls, etc., you know what I mean right?

No, if other tablets are likely to carry similar features then it will be a good contender will it not? Although, I imagine much like with the first iPad, the competition will be scrambling to keep up and iPad 2 will be the dominating slate in the market.

I see what you mean, but I'm saying that the OS should handle that for you, and if you don't like how the program utilizes screen space then the end user should be given the means to customize it to his/her liking.

For instance with my Droid Eris (which is quite slow, but when overclocked and rooted makes it a formidable free phone) I flashed the Cyanogen mod ROM and I can customize every piece of the UI. Even something as locked down as Pandora has new features, such as skipping tracks on the lock screen (not available with OTA firmware).

Mmm, it should but it can only do so much. I can't seem to picture it working, but that doesn't matter. End user being able to customize it? That sounds all right.
