Now there's a shocker.
Apple's IOS is slowly turning into bloatware. 4.3.x slowed my iPhone 4 down to unacceptable levels, introducing hitching in the animations for the first time since I got the phone the day it was released. 4.3.1, 4.3.2 and 4.3.3 all did it, jailbroken or not. Three times now I've upgraded to the latest firmware, only to be disappointed and move back to 4.2.1. Looks like that's the sweet spot for OIS on the iPhone 4 - at least for me. I won't give up performance for features in IOS, and I'm sure as hell not plunking down another $200-$600 on a new phone so I can have the horsepower to run their bloated crap. What is so hard about adding features to IOS while keeping performance at or better-than previous IOS levels? You know the iPhone 4 will run it, IF it's coded right.

That is devastating news... guess I'll have to play their game and get the "iPhone 4S," "iPhone 5," "Magic iPhone," or whatever they choose to call it when it comes out. Really hope it is a re-design and not just a super iPhone 4.

This sucks for 3gs owners who cares (lol) but this makes perfect business sense. Besides, there are far too many fanboys anyway, so I'm sure they'd either upgrade to the iphone4 now or wait for the iphone 4s/5 either way.

Typical Apple. And they'll continue to sell the 3GS right up until the day iOS 5 hits. I wouldn't be half as annoyed if they just stopped selling the 3GS ~6 months before iOS5 hits.
God forbid they optimize iOS. Instead they'll just bloat it up and require the fastest iPhones to run it.
I'm waiting for the day that new versions of OS X will only run on the latest Macs.
Absolutely HATE the new look of MMi
