My grips with the iPhone and hopefully addresses in iO5:
Better email options (aka read all), download attachments natively
Better notification/alert system: different alerts for different apps and email accounts, better notification bar.
Improved push notification: iPhone seems to be a hit or miss on push notifcations.

We'll get an iOS update when it's ready, and known to work very well. I'm more than OK with that.

It'll hopefully be announced next month.
Fragmentation - a lot are really confusing what fragmentation really is. The current Android OS is 2.3, but there are devices coming out with 2.2 and I believe even 2.1 (xperia). When the Verizon iPhone came out, it didn't have an old OS, it actually came out with a more recent one. Also with apple, a majority (if not close to all) the apps are backwards compatible. A lot of apps now are made for Retina Display, but they still work on the 3GS and even 3G. Also, look at how Qik is made for specific devices. Qik for the Atrix or Qik for the EVO. Both on the same OS, but have to have different apps made for them.
I do believe both will drop at the same time, but even if it is a month or two after the GSM version, that's not the same as what Google is doing with Android. Right now, I can't even use Tango with my Atrix, yet other devices may be able to use it.

Duvi is definitely right about fragmentation. We make jokes about it but Apple is far from fragmented. Android is absolutely horrendous and I believe, unless they get it together, that a great OS will never reach its full potential.

Also it should be fairly obvious that iOS 5 is coming. It gets updated pretty much yearly. And this article is misleading in that it makes people think that the OS will be released in April when it's more likely that it will just be announced and then released later.

If U were to ask me, Apple has to many updates. It irritates me that every time I hook up the phone, there is another xx mb update.
Just saying how I feel about the fact they do not do patches. Instead they do the entire os.
