    No mention during Jobs' keynote about whether or not iPhone 4 can make phone calls.

    small comparison:
    http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/07/iphone-4-vs-evo-4g-fight/

    if the Evo 4G had a keyboard id be all over it
    they dropped the unlimited data plan to help with people who actually want to use their phones as a phone

    definitely like the new look. features look spot on.
    if it came to verizon, maaaybe id consider it.

    Evo 4G has the edge still i think. 4G internet speed(in certain areas) and wifi hotspot. AND better plans from sprint.

    too bad im stuck with verizon and my blackberry for another year.

    agreed. i switched over to gizmodo because of that, but now they're succumbing to fanboyism too.

    i enjoy apple products, i use a macbook pro...but when the front page is nothing but apple/iphone posts, its too much.

    just some food for thought...

    I can see the value in adding a basic movie editor. Even an ebook reader - to a certain degree (I don't think it will become a primary reader for people, screen is just too small). Netflix on your phone is cool and all*, but who is seriously gonna watch a whole movie on a sub 4" screen? Or even a whole tv show? If I have that kind of time, I'd much rather watch it on an actual tv screen.

    At what point is it going to get gimmicky? Garage band on your iPhone? This is a phone people, not a work station. Draw the line somewhere. I'm calling it now, software is going to make the iPhone jump the shark.






    *not even gonna touch on AT&T's bandwidth issues

    I fly every 3 or 4 weeks for work and I watch movies on my phone every time cause usually the inflight movies are some lame-ass chick flick. My gfriend takes the commuter rail to work every day and frequently watches TV shows on it on her 45 minute commute.

    ....so yes, there ARE people outside of your bubble that will use that function quite frequently. :)

    A4 in iPad/iPhone 4, not exclusive - a Samsung ARM product Jobs sugar coated (as usual with many "exclusive" Apple features):

    you chumps are obviously flying coach.

    also: wifi is just now starting to roll out for inflight use, so you won't be able to use netflix on every flight just yet

    I love my 3GS. I have never had a problem with dropped calls or anything either. Needless to say the iPhone 4 is one sweet phone.

    My contract wont end until April of 2011, by then Ill just wait for iPhone 5. I think I can manage until then. The only thing thats on iPhone 4 that I would want is the HD video. Everything else is icing on the cake. I just want OS 4, I was annoyed they didn't release it yesterday.
