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.

Of course, it could be any number of reasons. However, if you look at the past, it's not at all odd to assume that it could be because Apple is trying to do too much.

Ya, because there were never delays in Windows CE/WinMo releases or updates, or Symbian, or NewtonOS, or PalmOS, or Blackberry.....

Because Apple doesn't use a semi-free VM and SDK on top of a Linux kernel spearheaded by google they are doomed to fail by "trying to much". Because they actually make products instead of slapping together a cheap piece of plastic based on a lame reference design with a Google stamp on it.... because they write their own code instead of participating in your lame ecosystem which is also quite young.

Good thing all those companies in the 50's and 60's like DEC and IBM tried to much or you wouldn't be posting your half-thought-out rants.

And I say this as a happy Android user. I have a lot of respect for iOS though. I just needed something open.... with a microSD slot....
