  • GO TO APPLE's WEBSITE! They have 360 degree views...the TV ad...and TONS of pictures of the new Iphone...
  • I'm a little confused about something, wondering if someone here can explain it to me. I have an iPhone now, and I understand we'll get the Firmware 2.0. But does that include 3G capability, or do we have to buy a whole new phone for that? Thanks!
  • STILL no cut/copy/paste nor synched ToDos/NotesStickiesMemos? Sigh.
  • goldni: 3G is a hardware thing, so it's part of the new iPhone 3G and not the original model.
  • Damn. Ok, thank you.
  • The GPS features require different hardware, sorry
  • The new iphone looks very nice, but it has a solid competitor, Samsung Omnia smartphone.
