iOS 4.2 on iPad becomes like iPhone, with the hardware orientation lock changed to a mute switch, and a software orientation lock added to the fast app switcher UI's widget section.

iPad was originally announced with a mute switch but the description was later changed to read orientation lock just before release. Whether iOS 4.2 allowing Apple to go back to their original plan, or is simply allowing for more consistency across the iOS platform is unknown.

What do you think, change for the better or worse?
