Engadget goes hands-on with iOS 5

Our big sister site, Engadget, had a chance to go hands-on with iOS 5 the other day at WWDC and took oodles of screenshots to enjoy. TUAW, of course, has a number of writers who also have had a day or two to grope the new iOS, but who are limited by Non-Disclosure Agreements to what they can say about pre-release software.

As a result, we're going to point you to Jacob Schulman's lovely screenshots and galleries so that you can get a developer's-eye view of the new features that make iOS 5 so enchanting. Among my favorites? The notification screens seen above.

So many of us have wanted to be able to check mail, messages, weather, stock prices, and more at a glance -- this fall, it all comes to iPhone. I'm also pretty happy with the improvements to the camera app and the ability to bring up the camera from the lock screen. No more fumbling through unlocking the iPhone, finding the camera app, and then finally getting the camera pointed at the subject -- which has moved on in the interim.

Enjoy the photos at Engadget, and let us know what your most highly anticipated iOS 5 feature is.
