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.

I'd say that not releasing a new iPhone at the usual interval is a sign of what I - and many, more intelligent people with me - have been predicting for about 18 months now

I bet these intelligent people were among the bunch that believed the iPad would flunk as would the iPod.
They seem to be keeping up with competition just fine when it comes to the iPad.
While I have to agree to some extent that they have too much on their plate right now, I believe the delay to September is also a strategic move.

As for MobileMe, the update is long overdue.
Time for Wireless syncing, iTunes music backups and streaming etc.
