    When using the pad with a leather case, it is hard to drag out the launcher from some applications. So it would be very handy to put a "Home" icon in the system tray, along side the battery, wifi, etc, to avoid pressing the physical home button in the body. Does not sound very hard to do, any ideas?

    It's a neat idea. A bit like Honeycomb.

    But I'm interested why, if you want to press something, you don't press the hardware button?

    Just swipe up.

    This is to preserve the lifespan of the physical home button, at least an alternative to that.

    Sometimes it is hard to do so, when it is in a leather case which covers the edges.

    Got that too. All these got pros and cons. Anyways, would be very handy to have a virtual home button in the tray. You have a similar thing when you run almost all apps that were made for Pre on a Touchpad.

    You know that swiping up from bezzel area will do the same thing as the home button right?

    In the system tray (left up corner of the screen), along with battery_info, wifi, bluetooth, etc. What it does is closing the current card.

    How much of the edge is covered? You don't have to swipe from the bezel, just close to where the screen meets it.

    It more like on Maemo. And I so would love to have it, in the upper left corner with one touch bringing up card view and further touch - launcher. Hardware button seems a little flimsy.
    When I bought my Maemo-linux powered N900, its future was doomed.
    When I bought my WebOS powered Touchpad, its future was uncertain.
