With all the talk about widgets in iOS 5, you have to wonder what Apples "version" or "take" on widgets will be.
I would love to see a combination of widgets (android) and the live tiles (windows phone). Having the app icons be "live" so that weather updated and the like would be nice. It will be interesting to see what comes. Knowing Apple, if they do dive into widgets, they will be simple and will definitely keep the current flow of the iOS.

They could do something like this, instead of true widgets:
Say you have the calendar app. If you swipe on the icon, or click on it, it pulls up (similar to folders) a simple list, or widget, of your event agenda, etc. Similar thing for weather, swipe on the icon and you get a 5 day forecast.
Just an idea, but if Apple does something, it has to be both elegant and simple. It also has to be so easy it passes the "mother" test. Could you explain it to your mother and have her do it.
Just my two cents.

I can't wait to see what Jobs has to say on the 6th.
I'm also liking the BBM-style app rumors circulating now. If Apple could come up with a direct competitor to BBM, it would really start to drive even more enterprise use of the device, and just be cool as you-know-what.

No rumor season would be complete without an off-the-cuff, out-of-the-blue tweet from Eldar Murtazin and this one about the two year old iPhone 3GS not getting iOS 5 doesn’t disappoint:
Just one comment. Apple iPhone 3Gs wont be upgradable to iOS 5.x. iPhone 4 will.
iOS 5 is expected to be revealed at WWDC in June. Although the iPhone 3GS is currently still on the market, Apple has previously discontinued software updates for older iOS devices like the original iPhone 2G — and more recently the iPhone 3G.
And who knows, if iOS 5 requires a minimum of an Apple A4 chipset to run at acceptable performance levels, then maybe Murtazin might have something. We’ll have to wait for WWDC to find out.
What do you think, iPhone 3GS owners?
UPDATE: Some folks are pointing out that Murtazin said iPhone 3Gs, not iPhone 3GS, as in he meant the plural form of iPhone 3G. And since they didn’t get iOS 4.3, it stands to reason they wouldn’t get iOS 5. If that’s the case, it’s a pretty obvious thing to tweet…
