      Maybe that's a little too technical for a hand held device.. most likely its a silent upgrade.

      wow...

      how utterly pathetic and disappointing that was. 2.2 was more interesting then that...

      WOW, I can have a whole bunch of features NOT supported on AT&T...

      So the case is exactly the same.. no matte finish and the same chrome bezel.

      I'd try MacRumors. MMi is my #1 place for iPhone news but on huge days like this, they can be a little behind (No offense to any staff)

      I'm just glad the forums are up and running as I see lots of hits in a while when everyone figures out there's officially a new iphone.

      I'm with others, if there's no RAM/CPU upgrades I am not shelling out $200 on an upgrade

      didn't see it mentioned, I'm guessing it's gonna be June 19, but did they announce a public 3.0 release date?

      ... and ten freaking dollars if you have a TOUCH?!? talk about getting shafted...

      Why in the Hell would I even bother to upgrade a Touch? What would I be getting out of it?

      Wow no front facing cam and same design what a let down. If I can trade in my 3G and keep the same contract for a small fee I`ll upgrade, otherwise I`ll wait for the next iPhone.
