Late on a Friday summer afternoon when everyone’s about to get early cocktails, Apple goes and releases the new iOS 5 beta we’ve been waiting all week for.

iOS 5 Beta 2 is now available to registered developers. The build is 9A5248d.

Anyone surprised that RIM”s now announcing layoffs after seeing their first quarter results? I thought not.
