iOS 5.0 Pre-Keynote

Well we should get the beta for iOS 5.0 today. Here's what I think:

iOS 5.0 will install on an iPod 4th gen or iPhone or iPad. So yeah it will exclude the 3rd gen iPod and iPhone 3GS.

This will cause the usual "I'm not going to developer for iOS anymore" blog posts and developers will take their ball and go (home) to Android.

However, iOS 5.0 will have such a compelling feature set that most developers (me included) will embrace it full on.

Can't wait for 10:30 or 11:00 AM to roll around.

PS DO NOT INSTALL iOS 5.0 beta on your main device unless you can deal with poor battery life and flaky performance! Let the "How do I remove iOS 5" posts begin.

Post-Keynote update: Nearly an epic fail since iOS 5.0 will install on ALL iOS 4.3 devices.
