Chinese forum WeiPhone.com [Google translation] (via MacRumors) shows what appears to be not yet working links to the new software that will showcase at the Worldwide Developers Conference. The website was able to leak the same software links correctly last year, so we are taking these links seriously.
Besides the beta build of 10A5316k, we are noting that there are no links to the builds of the original iPad. This perhaps signals that Apple will not support the device.
Also of interest: Apple still sells the iPhone 3GS, despite it having an older processor (Samsung) than the original iPad (A4). Moreover, it appears they will support it—at least if these builds hold up. It also appears that only the latest (fourth-generation) iPod touch is supported, even though the third-generation iPod touch had a slightly faster processor than the supported iPhone 3GS and is not supported.
Note that the links below say expired…
