So now it's just a question of how long until Apple notices this glitch, releases a new update, and part of the update removes this feature?

Well, all you need is:
* OS3.0
* first and second page full
* third to tenth page at least on app
* eleventh page full

Then you:
* move the Voice Memo App to the last (eleventh) page, to the last position (lower right hand corner)
* move one additional app into the last page, so that the Voice Memo app jumps over the edge
* power circle (hold power button, confirm shutdown, hold power button)

You should now have:
* the Voice Memo App on the last position on the first page!
* the (prior) last app should be on the newly created second page

redo as often as you like.

many more apps on one iPod/iPhone
power on takes a little longer (I currently have 16 app pages)
more apps to play with
swiping through the 16 pages is not as smooth as only 11 pages, but its only barely visible
more apps to group into individual pages
managing 16 pages is cumbersome...
more apps

As you can see, there are more positives than negatives

BTW: I would like to know if this is still possible with OS3.1!! So if anyone with 3.1 beta can confirm this it would be super cool!

I'd like to bump this awesome tip by Crypton, because though I saw that we had invisible pages in the sync area on iTunes, I never was able to see the apps without spotlight.

I now have 12 pages showing on my iDevices! I'll go for at least 15. And I guess it's a feature here to stay, since there has already been one iTunes update since this last post. THANKS CRYPTON!

I noticed that the apps go screwy if you add/delete apps a lot (as I do). For example, the last "invisible page" app tries to find a space in a regular page, bumping down other apps. It's fine if you don't have a system, but I do. Utilities on one page, games on another, newspapers, etc.

Since I have three iDevices, I am just going keep one where I don't move around the apps and just add the extra pages there.

Why does Apple keep the number of app pages so low? What reasons do they have to keep it low?

I have no idea. This can probably be done with iBlank, as well, guys, if your iDevice is jailbroken. Can anyone test that? iBlank crashes my iTouch, but thats because I need so much stuff running.
