Apple Techcrunch is reporting from the usual "reliable sources" that one reason why there was no discussion of iOS 5 at the iPad 2 unveiling was that iOS 5 is going to be delayed until the fall, even though previous iOS updates have been done in the spring, making it a tradition of sorts. Furthermore, the upcoming WWDC will be "software only" and will not include the unveiling of any new hardware, in particular the iPhone 5, which will presumably be released concurrently with the iOS update.

Bad news for Android, since the sole porporse of delaying it was to see what Apple had to offert.


Yes this was so obvious that you'd have thought even Thom could see it, but alas. And keep in mind...

“We are very happy with the progress of Google Chrome OS and expect devices will be available later this year. We’ll have more details to share at launch.”

Chrome OS netbook from Asus coming In June, report says ... Google debuted Chrome OS nearly two years ago, but the search giant and its partners including Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Toshiba, as well as Asus have yet to launch a Chrome OS-based netbook.


Should we read into this that Google are overstretched and don't have the resources to get Chrome OS ready for prime-time as they promised?
