It looks like iOS 4.2 for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad will arrive on devices by Friday, possibly by 6 PM today according to some reports. While it appears that iOS 4.2 may lose AirPrint, many iPad apps are gaining support for the rest of the new iOS 4.2 features like multitasking and Game Center.
