No Home Button On Next Generation iPhone & iPad?

As you must have heard by now, Apple has seeded a beta version of iOS 4.3 with developers. Among the several enhancements this new iOS update offers, one interesting inclusion is that of several new multitouch gestures that let users to “pinch to home screen“, “swipe up to reveal multitasking tray“, “swipe left/right to switch apps“, etc.

Now according to a new rumor, Apple could be working on such gestures in order to eventually build an iPhone without any physical buttons. The new design in fact is expected to be made available on the iPad first and then make its way to the iPhone at a later stage.

In that case, we wonder if this would mean that the next generation iPad, that is speculated to launch in just a few weeks from now could be the first iDevice to launch without a home button. Do you think it’s a good idea?
