Pre GM screenshot allegedly of iOS 5.1 leaks, shows lock-screen camera button and Japanese Siri
The GM version of a software release is the final version installed in a device. You need to know this to understand that a leaked screenshot of an allegedly pre-GM iOS 5.1 was obtained by Brazilian Apple iPhone site blogdoiPhone. The photo shows a permanent camera button on the handset's lock screen. The current build of the operating system requires a user to double-tap on the home button to call up the camera icon. Sliding a finger up from the icon will open the camera interface, according to the site.

And there is one more piece of interesting news from these leaked shots. It looks like Siri has been undergoing some intensive language training and will be adding Japanese to the list of languages that the voice activated personal assistant supports. As we told you, Apple plans to give Siri the ability to "speak" Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian and Spanish to Siri  sometime this year with Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and Russian coming to Siri as soon as next month.

Speaking of next month, profiles published recently by Apple point to a March 9th launch of iOS 5.1.

Glad about the camera slider. Double tapping home button doesn't give you the "instant camera access" that this would
