Seems like people are split on the new phone. People now have high epectations about Apple product introductions. This time there was a longer time interval between phone models than in the past, so people probably expected some extra coolness, like LTE or a new form factor. Yet there was no radical new technologies, just improvements... although the Siri feature looks pretty cool if it works they way they describe it. Actually, lot of the innovation is really just in the new OS--and that's going to be available to iPhone 3Gs and 4 users.
One interesting twist is that it is now a true world phone (both GSM and CDMA), so Verizon customers can now take the phone overseas. Also, Sprint is selling it now and they still offer unlimited data plans. Will these developments mean trouble for AT&T?
