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.

Has anyone accused you of trolling? Disagreeing with you is not the same thing, so that comments looks a little petulant.

You're both cherry-picking features that have only arrived in the last few months. Dual-core CPUs on phones are so new that even the Nexus-S is only single-core, and my work one is barely out of the box.

Amazon's service is, what, days old and it's already an example of iOS failure, despite hundreds of thousands of iOS apps or services, some of which presumably don't exist for Android.

If Apple, as rumoured, release the iPhone 5 with an edge-to-edge Retina display, will Android devices have even managed something like the screen in last year's iPhone? Some prefer a bigger device with a bigger screen but the Retina Display, for me, is a huge plus for the iPhone.

It seems like you're only counting the successes on the Android side, but counting iOS's failures before they've even happened.
