It's still some nice upgrades. only letdown is if you wanted a bigger display/different form factor.
Oh my gosh would any true Apple person want something different from a tiny little 3.5" display.

You should really think about how it would look in your pants since a large device would never fit in your shirt pocket.

Oddly enough, that was the exact demo they showed.
I can see it now.

I envy you guy.

I just got too many un-budgeted costs impacting me for this fiscal year (Jul- Jul). Maybe 2012 Christmas, "I will get lucky."

Or maybe the estimated 1000USD unlocked cost will go down.

Perhaps you need the Galaxy S WiFi Player 5.0.

The 5.0 is too large. I'm watching the 4.0 and waiting for some hands on reviews.

I think 3.8" is good. No more than 4" unless I gain a hundred pounds. Fat people=large display phones. You know it and I know it.

I definitely see the advantages of quick access, and I don't really have an issue with people seeing my photo roll-its just anything that gets behind the passcode seems
like an opportunity for an exploit or two-especially as that was one of the big issues of the first iPhone (being able to get thru the passcode to access contacts, etc.)
I guess if I was going to look for a weak spot, I'd be looking where the armour seems thinnest, so I see a decent point there. Perhaps they had consciousness of that (the history) during development and have armoured it accordingly? I guess we won't know until...

Not that it matters to anyone, but I'll be preordering a 64GB one come Friday. My 2-year iPhone 3GS contract with Virgin Mobile finishes on the 8th, so it's perfect timing.

Cheers,
Marc

I like "Flat people=large display phones."

I will put my abs against yours any day, little Otter.

Oh, I forgot to ask "How does you statement reconcile with the 10" pads which I consider way too big since they won't fit in my shirt pocket?

I ain't gots no 10" pads. If I did have an iPad it probably wouldn't leave home.

I should have been more careful with my wording. Anyway, that statement rings true on two counts.

But did you see my follow up remark in edit on the 10" pads. I am eager to hear your retort.

The 4.0 has the same number of pixels, 480x800.

My old school Samsung flip phone contract expired some time ago. I think I'll get one of those newer style old school flip phones. You know, the ones that can make phone calls and do some occasional texting.

The Loved One will inherit my 3GS, though for the last year, post-retirement day, he has been using my old Nokio 6300 "candybar". As a phone, the Nokia's a good phone (fits in a jeans coin-pocket!). But I use my iPhone less as a phone and more as a shrunkeded 3G tablet and photography-tool. I like easily portable connectivity and assorted app-tools, just so long as I don't have to speak to anyone.

Cheers,
Marc
