      I'm really surprised the GS turned out to be real. However, I knew it would be no game changer, just incremental upgrades here and there for a nicer experience. So with that said....

      Hahahahahahahaha to everyone hoping for oleds and video conferencing and multi core and every other ridiuculous rumor.

      i like how he mentioned that its supported on 20+ carriers, but neglected to mentione AT&T...

      So I can get the option to Tether, and MMS, but it does me no good cause AT&T doesn't support it.

      "For non-qualified customers, including existing AT&T customers who want to upgrade from another phone or replace an iPhone 3G, the price with a new two-year agreement is $499 (8GB), $599 (16GB), or $699 (32GB)."

      Just as expected.

      So then this is different than last year in that everyone that now has an iPhone 3G will have to wait until they are eligible or pay full price. BLAH!

      dont u mean the price with-OUT a new two-year agreement?

      Everyone paid full price for the original, then got the sudsidized cost on the 3G. You're still paying for that sudsidized bonus with your contract so you can't get another subsidized phone until it finishes.

      Palm Pre is better than new iPhone.

      "dont u mean the price with-OUT a new two-year agreement?"

      That's straight from the apple store. If you have the 3G and for some reason want to the GS, you will have to pay full price AND extend the contract.

      i especially like how they throw a ridiculous amount of hardware at a system and then try to shock everyone how much "faster" it is then a windows vista/7 machine...

      WOW, if I had 8 gigs of ram and a quadcore i'll bet XP would run really freaking fast too...

      and whats up with openCL?
