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 think they're too busy dragging the corpse of chrome os back to the woodshed to release it. It needs to be killed. Bad idea up there with Buzz. Not everything Google does is a good idea.

But they are overstretched yes. Thats their official reason for not releasing Honeycomb. Its ready to be put in production devices, but they're a bit embarrassed at the code hacks that were necessary to get there.
