Blank Keyboard Key – Another Hint of iPad Dashboard Widgets?

Share This:


There have been rumors floating round for a while now about Mac OS X style Dashboard widgets for the iPad – as many have speculated that the built-in apps that are missing from the iPad home screen (Weather, Stocks, Calculator, Clock, Voice Memos) could be implemented nicely as widgets.

This week those rumors have gained a little steam with the observation – by a clever poster called macduke at the MacRumors site – that the iPad keyboard has a blank key smack dab in the middle of the top row of function keys.  So the guess is that this key could easily be a Dashboard key when the iPad and its keyboard are released next month.

I’d quite like to see Dashboard on the iPad – it’s a great utility on a MacBook, and I’m sure it can be a great one on the iPad as well. What do you all think?  Would you like to see Dashboard widgets for the iPad?

  1. I agree. I too would love to see Dashboard on the iPad. It would really make it look less like "a big iPod touch". I've gotten that a lot. Dashboard would distinguish the iPad from the Touch and the iPad.
