    I really like how swift the ipad 2 is with ios4.

    Can anyone who is testing out ios5 tell me if it slows down the ipad 2? like general stuff like loading the apps, internet browsing, switching between the apps etc?

    From what I've heard, it's performance is pretty good, especially since it's dual-core.

    IOS 5 Beta 4 is not so bad, previous betas have been slow and laggy but this new beta seems a lot better.

    Beta 4 is very solid. The tabbed browsing alone is worth installing it for, and Netflix and the like seem to be working now as well. It's very worth checking out, iOS5 really solved most of the issues I was missing from Android.

    I am waiting on iOS 5 because the beta's have been a bit buggy. Glad to hear that beta 4 is working out well. I may give the next one a shot.
