The iOS 5 will be compatible with all the recent Apple devices like iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch.iOS 5 introduces a new messaging service that will work between all the devices with iOS. Its similar to BBM service for Blackberry mobile phones. The users will be able to pictures and videos apart from the text messaging.

  1. I can not wait for the news on the next generation. I am currently stuck with the 3Gs but ready to upgrade now - not going for the 4, although all my mates are on it but want to wait for the 5 for sure.

    Been looking around the web for contract deals etc and not found too much but here is a link that may be useful.
