Im not an Apple fan boy but u gotta hand it to them. Everyone is complaining about the lack of a hardware release today. Apple is fighting 2 wars: with Google and with Samsung. To split the software and hardware releases into two separate events is the best way to fend off the Android forces. Apple must focus on their OS more than ever as common smartphone users are beginning to realise just what a powerhouse Android phones are.
Wow.. What a copycat Apple is..
Pull-down notifications is from Android. Lockscreen notifications is a little bit like Bada's . iMessanger is from Blackberry's BBM. Camera pinch to zoom can be found in most Android Smartphones.
Android made a big mistake by not copyrighting or patenting its Notiication bar system.
Apple will make a big thing out of something which has been in the market for past 3 years. Just like they did with Face time when original video calling was availabe in uk since 2002 and year 2000 in South Korea and Japan. Just because it is called Apple so we have to respect it. F88k this life.
AnonD-1082, 07 Jun 2011I don't think Rovio Mobile is owned by Nokia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rovio_MobileNot isn't
AnonD-171, 07 Jun 2011don't try and twist crap around Buddy i'm not stupid nor miss-educated either.....just like r... moreand you cant compare rovio angry birds to BBM, everytime you open rovio it loads, you think people want to open a messenger that has to load? bad comparison

AnonD-171, 07 Jun 2011don't try and twist crap around Buddy i'm not stupid nor miss-educated either.....just like r... morenow since blackberry and apple cannot join there softwars together, just because it wont heppin, then even if BBM goes global on every phone as an app, the quality wont be the same as it would from a blackberry itself. thats why im happy to see apple introduce imessenger integrated in the phone.
AnonD-171, 07 Jun 2011don't try and twist crap around Buddy i'm not stupid nor miss-educated either.....just like r... morewhen you say that, yes that is a true statement, but ill tell you why it wont work, because there is a difference between bbm and whatapps in quality, speed and general software. BBM doesnt lag, nor does it crash, reason why is because its on the Blackberry network from RIM, so when you look at whatsapp being from a third party manufacturer, it lags and freezes, has many problems, i know from experience. Now if imessenger comes out from apple, will be built in to the iphone( like bbm) we know that there wont be any of the problems that whats app and liveprofile have. That was just my point from the begining until you mentioned the word fool, and i aint no fool.
[deleted post]don't try and twist crap around Buddy i'm not stupid nor miss-educated either.....just like rovio which is from finland and which is owned by nokia made angry birds multi platform which generated millions of dollars since it's not just on one platform.....how is having an app on one platform gonna do justice if people don't wanna buy a new phone just for that app?
MJ, 07 Jun 2011Ok I see a lot of ppl criticizing the iOS 5 update.
So I don't get whats the issue if the no... moreYour argument is flawed.
1) Pinch to Zoom has been available in Windows platforms for ages with Touch screen monitors. Apple just used it in a handset and orginially it was only available in Google Maps.
2) Coverflow is a direct rip off of Windows Media Player/Media Center.
3) Not quite sure what your point is with that. Multitouch? Isn't that the same as 1???? - Mute point.
4) Both Symbian and Sony Ericsson had online stores for handsets at least 3 years before the App Store.
Finally, a real point to think about. Apple does nothing to truely innovate the market. If you are after a gadget with games, then a iPhone is for you. If you want something that is productive, then Android is your friend.
its good to have iOS 5 but where is next iphone i am waiting for it for a long time i never even wait for my gf that much
Omg OMG< google copied this apple copied thath, so anyone in internet copy anyone?

Anonymous, 06 Jun 2011I'm pretty sure the person taking a picture using the volume key on the demonstration photo is... moreNo he is not..coz the camera is near the opposite side of the volume keys side!! That means when the iPhone is held horizontally wit the volume keys above...the camera is on the bottom right. -_-
I used a lot's of OS since 1994 and iOS is the simplest, easiest and cleanest OS.
Apple has their probems too, but is a very nice OS to use, and Android has copy too many advantages of iOS, so, there's no clear at all Android is the "innovative" as they use to think...
Ok I see a lot of ppl criticizing the iOS 5 update.
So I don't get whats the issue if the notification system has been used by apple which is leaf from google's andriod book.
I would like to remind andriod supporters about similar leaves being taken from iOS
1)why does andriod OS has pinch zoom and double tapping zoom. when it was first implemented by apple? Coz its cool!! Obviously it is.
2)why does the ipod CoverFlow(Album view in landscape mode of ipod) used for android OS music players? Again same reason.
3)Original iPhone was the first mobile phone to use a multi-touch interface. Why does android phones use it now?
4)The first mobile OS to have online app store was iOS. Why did google open its own andriod app store?
5)the original iphone featuring iOS was the only phone to bring unique and intuitive touch-screen interface for surfing the web, scrolling through pictures and music, and making calls, sending text messages and emails. Android was released a year later in sept 2008. Why did andriod use all these features? There can be more comparisions. So hope I m clear about the 'Copy Cat' factor!!
But guys its about PREFERENCE!! I don't hate Andriod. But I like using iPhone. So updates are meant to make user interface easier. So what if one leaf of google's book was used. The apple customer at other end gets the advantage. Chillax. Remember - no OS is perfect!!
