Default OS diffference Storm2 and Tour?

Please Login to Remove!

I believe the new Tour (9630) is shipping today with OS 4.7, while the expected Storm2 will ship with OS 5.0

Please, other than the hardware differences (touch keyboard and WIFI on the Storm2), what is the difference between the 4.7 and 5.0 OS?? Thanks in advance?

as OS 5 hasn't been officially released yet, we only have poor early betas to go off.
Basically they will look similiar, but 5 will likely come with enhancements to the programs, etc.
Its just like any OS upgrade, it just happens to be a 5 instead of a 4.x
