Duel, 12 Jun 2011Why iCloud is stupid, but skydrive is good? Because it was made by Apple?because iCloud is storage, SkyDrive is not only storage but also does cloud computing, where the number crunching/CPU cycles are done by Microsoft Servers and only your screen is updated. (like a VPN client). There's a difference between Cloud Computing, and Apple's approach which is just wireless network storage / syncing. (which has been around for what, 10 years now from Cisco?)
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2011GSMarena please check this : http://www.tuaw.com/2011/06/10/ios-5-said-to-integrate-facebook-... moreAh wonderful. So they also took a page out of Windows Phone 7 (and 7.5 mango)'s book. Pity, what happened to Apple innovation. Now they're playing catch-up with once a year releases where Google is dropping updates and moving away from the pack every few months with a new release.
The major part of iOS 5 that is important is the move from updating the entire OS with each iteration. This has a major impact on enterprise customer adopting iOS devices. Updating 1000 + iPads in a hospital is a major issue when each update is 600Mb. I wrote and article about is iOS 5 ready for the enterprise which should give this comment some context.
iOS has no mean in my country,Iran.because of boycotts,a very important part of today's mobile OS's is unavaible here:app store.so who wants to have a iDevice should jailbreak it and can't use apple app store's application.also updates and support has no mean here that are some of apple's key advantages in the world.android has better conditions here thanks to it's freedom.android market is closed in Iran too,but iranians has made their own local market and there are many websites that includes many apps.but they can't replace android market. but an other good part is better droid phone's support.i just want to explain the smartphone market status in iran,maybe it will have better future!
Gnu be a fail can see they have been original NOT!!! Copying blackberry messenger apple have lost then imagination
applemaniac, 19 Jun 2011I read into section and i concluded that all were copied from android except few..... So sadWhy it's sad? it's good for us customers to have all the goodies from every OS. Why you guys make it so big of deal? actually i don't need your answer, i know its because it's Apple no other reason.
WP7 can copy everything from others but people are not complaining.
What you think Android would be today without iOS? exactly.
I don't care if those phone makers are copying each others features, If i want to chance brand someday it's good for me, how i can see anything bad about it having more/better features in my phone?
I have been using the beta for several days and am completely unimpressed. The ios will never be an active operating system nor will it ever be very dynamic. The initial simplicity and tactile involvement with the phone that I initially came to love in the old incarnations have now become ios's Achilles heel. It is still too cumbersome to retrieve important info. It's the same old clutter of apps. No file system, no organization. The problem's continue with apps having little integration with one another.
applemaniac, 19 Jun 2011I read into section and i concluded that all were copied from android except few..... So sadand android has copied lots from apple lol deal with it thats the tech world. the whole android os is base loosely on the iOS
infact samsung practically use iOS on their devices lol
if companies didnt use each others ideas there would only b one phone manufacturer (cant think who invented the first mobile) and that wouldnt be a good thing.

Why would you review this iOS before it's official release? Don't you think it's unfair?
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2011:) It took Apple what? 10 years to overthrow Nokia by changing the mobile phone world?
It ... morehow did it take apple 10 years?
and feel free to feel smug about samsungs top phone beating apples 1 yeaars old device lol
mk, 16 Jun 2011People are slowing becoming tired of the iPhone's same old same old. With Android, users have ... morehmmmmm iph3gs is lower quality screen, slower processor (a bit like the wildfire i guess) it is also 2 years old now. the iph4 has the better screen and processor and the diff between the white and black is colour lol (its wasnt claimed as apples newest model with a diff name). the desire and desire s are practically identical but it is one htc's latest models (aka "hmmmm we need a new phone wait lets use the innards of all these desires and put them in a new shell. we could also steal from samsungs glory with the galaxy and put a S at the end. all apple haters wont notic its the same").
no samsung on the otherhand have done well the s2 is really nice device although 2 big for my liking.
choice is good but also creates issues. lets look at it from the uk's perspective:
google make the OS -> manufacturer messes with it (adds stuff/removes stuff) -> then the network messes with it (adds more junk and locks it).
now that alones is terrible imho as somewhere along the line some1 can mess up (aka the new sense UI has caused many software issues in desire s my friend is on his 5th). not only that but when google makes an update you have to start the process again (which can take months).
i just with google would sort things out and not allow others to mess with the OS they have spent millions to develop
