Someone please post the iPhone info here.

I tried to watch about ten minutes and I swear someone is eating the skittles from my giant hourglass.

Painfully dull.

Nonexistant design issues. Keep dreaming.

Well, looks like we have our answer to that one.

Siri is kinda cool, but still gimicky. As are all voice controls in general.

That's all they could come up with after more than a year? No wonder AAPL dropped after the announcement.

Meh, had that on my Nexus One I got ever a year ago. Its a feature that is awesome to use at first, but quickly falls to the "rarely ever touch" side of things.

A year is a long time to wait. Its definately the best iphone available. The real question is do you needed the added speed over the 4? Thats a personal thing you need to decide.

Really disappointed by this. This may be the first new iPhone I don't even want.

I would agree, but it looks like Apple's gone a bit beyond typical voice control. Looks more elaborate, by all accounts. Well integrated with the OS.

I have a BB curve 8900. I think a 3gs is an upgrade over the phone I currently have. My contract expires next summer.

I sold mine,so there's no going back. Not too disappointed, to be honest, the beefed up specs and Siri are nice additions.

This OS will be available for my current 4 so why upgrade? Faster and better camera?

I think Siri is 4S-only. Would make sense.

Its got some features that I didnt have, but I dont really need to set an alarm by voice control. The two things I ever used it for were texting and navigation, virtually nothing else.

Same with my GS2. Double tap the home button and it brings up Vlingo, which is even more feature rich than what my N1 could do, but again, something I find I rarely use once the "whoa cool!" factor has worn off.

To me, the biggest thing about this new iphone is the camera. iOS doesnt really encourage huge speed upgrades. There wont be things that run on this but not the iphone 4 for a long time, so the biggest thing is the camera...to me at least.
