I'm a developer, and I'm impressed with ios5 - enough that I'd consider running it on my primary phone.

But one thing I haven't figured out - I share a mobileme account with my spouse, to sync calendars and contacts, primarily. I'd like to use the icloud syncing, but stay in sync with her phone, which I'm not ready to upgrade to ios5 at this time.

Anyone know if you can have one device on ios5, and another on 4.3.3, and sync calendars and contacts? If I'm syncing my phone to icloud, can I continue to sync to mobileme as well?

I could be wrong, but I think when I chose to sync with iCloud, a popup appeared and said something about not syncing with MobileMe anymore.

On the KeyNote, Jobs said that calanders etc can be shared with other users and will be pushed back and forth automaticly between them, (using some silly morning soccer game planning analagy) with users being on different iCloud accounts. (It wasnt clear that both users would need to be on iOS5).
