Question [Q] Lack of a menu button a problem?

Could you guys clarify something for me?

If there are only three buttons - back, home and multitasking - how to get to the hidden menus in existing software? Will they be unavailable until an app is updated? Or will those buttons be brought out somehow?

Or is there something else I'm not seing?

There are literally 2 threads about this already. Not to mention a couple videos out there showing how it works.

When a legacy app is loaded, a menu button appears next to the multitasking button (this is how it works in honeycomb since the start).

The SDK is designed so that new apps and updated apps will have menu items (or at least a button) integrated into the app in plain view.
