    That's all good, but it looks like the notification system is the same, and I really hate it. The android system of a drop down menu is soooooo much better.

    Looks like there is some stuff about local notifications now not only server based... my guess is there is more to this.

    Unified Mailbox Baby! I've been asking for this since... 1977. Well maybe not quite that long, but a looong time.

    Well so far it looks like they have added almost everything the iphone/iPad haters claim is missing from the platform.

    That would be sound profiles, which would be nice. What I don't want is a pop up opening while i'm in the middle of doing something. If you are playing a game, or watching a video, it pauses it, which I can't stand.

    If you have 3 mail accounts, you would have 1 inbox that shows all the messages from all the accounts, with the ability to filter it to show only one account if thats all you want to see.

    If I am in an app that I have to log in to, like Skype, Bank of America or SplashID, a notification kicks me out of the app and I have to log back in. That is a PITA. Eric

    Yes, that is exactly what I'm talking about. It's truly an awful system. Like I said above, the drop down bar from Android is an awesome implementation of notifications.

    I'll be downloading the developer preview as soon as possible. With the new Multi-tasking features, I'd be surprised if the Notifications (as annoying as they are) still boot you out of a program. That was wicked retarded.

    Multitasking and multiple Exchange accounts rock! Sounds like this OS will fix a lot of the nagging things that bug me. I'm really looking forward to this!

    Now if only I could get the boss man to hurry up and buy our macs so we could start development for it!

    "Summer"

    Likely end of June / early July as per the norm for iPhone updates. I kinda expect a new iPhone as well, but that may wait.

    I have to say that I think this might be one of the best, if not the best, iPhone OS updates ever. Cant wait for folders!
