Tabbed browsing brings the desktop feature to mobile — and it looks pretty fast.
1:56 PM/ET: Now, Safari.
A new "reader" feature takes content into a single clean window and let's you read or email it. (It also strips out ads, which publishers will absolutely hate.)
1:54 PM/ET: Now, Twitter.
IOS 5 allows a single sign-on to automatically sign you into Twitter for any app. Apple also integrates this with photos, articles, videos, etc very simply. (This is nice, but the same level of Facebook integration would probably be even more popular and useful.)
1:52 PM/ET: Next feature: Newsstand.
Apple has created a single place in the App Store that is specifically for publications.
Not only does it organize them and allow purchasing, it downloads them in the background.

Apple will charge $29 for the upgrade.
Developer preview is available today, broadly available "in July."
1:37 PM/ET: This is clearly a software-heavy keynote with lots of detail geared toward developers.
Not the most exciting WWDC ever.
And much of this Apple already previewed.
Gotta hope iOS 5 and iCloud are more exciting.
1:35 PM/ET: Now a Mail demo: suggestions will prompt you for specific people, subjects or time periods. Or, you can filter by multiple parameters at once (which is particularly compelling)
