I'm tempted to give the iPhone another try.

i would really like to have siri. just so many pros and cons to sort through to see if it truly works as well as some say or as bad as others. i like my old evo, but i like the fact that siri can do anything, they say, completely hands free. dont know, will have to ponder this one for awhile.

I switched from an iphone to an android. I find the android far less intuitive and user friendly. When my renewal time comes up I will probably go back to the iphone. I'll have to check out this review.

It's not really a review as the phone isn't out yet, but rather a detailed spec analysis.
I do agree with Leo. Creating an OS for multiple phone types is a concern. My 3 yr old iPhone 3GS still works as good today as when I bought it, although I might give the Galaxy S3 a shot.

Apparently there are people camped out to get this phone as soon as it's available. It's just a phone, isn't it? Or, am I missing something here?

I think it has a special EO poster decoder ring built in.

iPhone - for those who like simple things, and being spoonfed.

Android - for those who like to learn new things, love modification and personalizing things.

Though apple has improved their iOs, I still don't like it over androids sandbox style system. This is coming from an ex-Apple fan.

Anyone else notice the striking similarities between the iPhone and the Pet Rock?

Especially if the iPhone is on AT&T.

Here's a good look at the new map app on the iPhone. It ain't pretty.

New Maps app is rare Apple flub - GadgetBox on NBCNews.com

From the article:
The Apple app also has a tendency to judge landscape features by their names. For instance, it marks the hulking Madison Square Garden arena in New York as green park space because of the word "Garden" in its name. The TD Garden football stadium in Boston gets the same treatment.

Conversely, Apple Maps marks "Airfield Gardens," a farm and plant nursery in Dublin, Ireland, as an airfield. This prompted the country's Justice Minister, Alan Shatter, to warn pilots on Thursday not to land there.

"Clearly the designation is not only wrong but is dangerously misleading in that it could result in a pilot, unfamiliar with the area, in an emergency situation and without other available information, attempting a landing," he said.

Marcus Thielking, the co-founder of mapping-app developer Skobbler, said the lapses of the Apple app are surprising, particularly since Apple purchases map data from an established provider, Tele Atlas.

"The combination of Apple and TomTom screwing up something like this is very odd. Apple is not the first and only company using Tele Atlas maps," Thielking said.

Well APLE now offer a free phone upgrades on their website, that'll make your 'old I=phone almost as good as the new one.
just go to your I-tones account, choose update, for the new 7 ,(BIG file, 75 mega,have a good internet connection)
connect to the I-cloud (for saving your important information before the update),
& download the new operating system.(this may take some time, plug your phone to a power source, and avoid using it)
& there you go, the phone will do the rest.
previously uploaded apps, can be uploaded again, but your personal items (contacts, photos, videos Ext) better be saved in another device prior to the upgrade (can be done via i'clouds).
you will now have a phone that can do just about everything an !-5 can.

Can it cook me dinner or spit out gold bars? Lol

"That's right, it filets, it chops
It dices, slices, never stops
Lasts a lifetime, mows your lawn
And it mows your lawn
And it picks up the kids from school
It gets rid of unwanted facial hair
It gets rid of embarrassing age spots
It delivers a pizza
And it lengthens, and it strengthens
And it finds that slipper that's been at large
Under the chaise lounge for several weeks
And it plays a mean Rhythm Master
It makes excuses for unwanted lipstick on your collar
And it's only a dollar, step right up
It's only a dollar, step right up

'Cause it forges your signature.
If not completely satisfied
Mail back unused portion of product
For complete refund of price of purchase
Step right up
Please allow thirty days for delivery
Don't be fooled by cheap imitations
You can live in it, live in it
Laugh in it, love in it
Swim in it, sleep in it
Live in it, swim in it
Laugh in it, love in it
Removes embarrassing stains from contour sheets
That's right
And it entertains visiting relatives
It turns a sandwich into a banquet
Tired of being the life of the party?
Change your shorts
Change your life
Change your life
Change into a nine-year-old Hindu boy
Get rid of your wife
And it walks your dog, and it doubles on sax
Doubles on sax, you can jump back Jack
See you later alligator
See you later alligator
And it steals your car
It gets rid of your gambling debts, it quits smoking
It's a friend, and it's a companion
And it's the only product you will ever need
Follow these easy assembly instructions
It never needs ironing
Well it takes weights off hips, bust
Thighs, chin, midriff
Gives you dandruff, and it finds you a job
It is a job
And it strips the phone company free
Take ten for five exchange
And it gives you denture breath
And you know it's a friend, and it's a companion
And it gets rid of your traveler's checks
It's new, it's improved, it's old-fashioned
Well it takes care of business
Never needs winding
Never needs winding
Never needs winding
Gets rid of blackheads, the heartbreak of psoriasis
Christ, you don't know the meaning of heartbreak, buddy
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon
'Cause it's effective, it's defective
It creates household odors
It disinfects, it sanitizes for your protection
It gives you an erection
It wins the election
Why put up with painful corns any longer?
It's a redeemable coupon, no obligation
No salesman will visit your home..."
