    i hate everything about the iphone. it's a damn phone. no other phone in history of man has stirred so much internet nonsense over it.

    it doesnt do anything that 234312423423 other phones don't do too.

    yes, it does. it forces you to pay $30/month for internet just to own it.

    So they staged this to get some buzz going only to release a very different looking iphone in the future?

    Going with edges/flat = going backwards not forwards.

    Doesn't seem like something Apple would put out. its so damn close to the normal iphone I bet they just crammed all the old insides into a new body for media sake.

    No doubt about that! The iPhone was supposed to tether with 3.0 or 3.2 whatever it was and it still has not happened. Shit will only get worse when the iPad starts shipping the end of this month too. Streaming Netflix over an already crippled network? Good thing no one makes calls anymore....

    Exactly, I posted on Gizmodo all the reasons this makes no sense and how it it's mutually beneficial to Apple and Gizmodo. Plus the fact that Giz released just enough info to generate a ton of hype, but the phone was bricked and they wouldn't take the phone apart far enough to give away any of the actual specs, so Apples interests are protected.

    Total PR stunt bullshit. I think I might just go with Engadget from now on.

    Oh I know you can do it via jailbreak. I was following up on the fact that AT&T has a seriously mismanaged network.

    while some other phones do the same kinds of things an iphone can do, the iphone has WAYY more apps available, and is much more intuitive to use.

    apple will probably re-release a "new" ipod after the ipad buzz dies down, but itll be called the ipad nano or some shit.

    My Pre is pretty intuitive and it also does true multitasking. And no one has any issues with folks hacking the shit out of them. That is the primary reason I dislike Apple so much. Jobs is a control freak. I mean, not allowing any products that compete with your native apps is pretty shitty in my opinion.
