Yeah Apple must be cooking up something good. I had the 4s and it was okay but felt a bit left out of the android world with all the innovations. Hooking up to products that I actually use will be useful.

Not really concerned with the swipe gestures thing but the speed is attractive.

Mr Grubber should get his facts straight. Fragmentation in android world is really a non issue since the I/o conference earlier this year. All devices with version 2.2 and up get updated through the Google play service in terms of functionality. Large parts of the OS have been decoupled from it over the past months and are now part of the play store/gpservice.
What's left are low level API introductions in new android versions which let's face it are mostly not relevant for older devices anyway ;)

Story
Introduction

Wil moved to London to study Biomedical Science at King's College London in 2007. It was there that he started FatKidOnFire, which earned him the 'Digital Journalist of the Year' title at the 2010 Guardian Student Media Awards.

Wil currently lives south of the river Thames, working in north London for a small startup (and other freelance clients). In his spare time, he writes for Microsoft's Ubelly, spends too much money on Nike products and listens to music that frightens his mother.
