iOS 5 is out!

Yes, Apple’s iOS 5 is released as expected at around 1:00AM, 13-Oct-2011 (PHT / GMT +8:00). iOS 5 offers an overload of 200 new features including iMessage, Notification Center, Newsstand, Reminders and that Twitter thingy.

The download took around 2 hours but because I encountered the “internal error” issues (as expected, Apple servers were swamped with requests by I guess millions of iDevice owners around the world) I was up all night!

After several DFUs (and whispered prayers to please Steve Jobs let the update through) I finally got my iPhone 4 installed with iOS 5, and seeing it sync for the first time was whoawesome, and worth my now bloodshot eyes!

Your thoughts?
