    So since this is a 3G iPhone, does that mean on road trips through areas that don't have 3G coverage I will not be able to use the internet (when WiFi is unavailable), or does it also have EDGE backup? That is an extreme disappointment if they expect people to only be able to use the internet when in a 3G area or WiFi area.

    yes it is pretty disappointing that hardly any new features were added but i believe that apple is not trying to make the iphone owners upgrade to the new phone, they just want to have more customers.
    especialy in europe since 3g is available everywhere atleat here in austria where i live. every provider has 3g everywhere its nothing new or big....so alot of people here were sayin "yea its a cool phone but without 3g it way to slow" and whatever....
    i dont have any internet in my contract with t-mobile so 3g doesnt give me s***
    so im actually kinda gladd they didnt add anything new that is useful for me because i dont have the money to upgrade....and they are keeping that hardware sp similar so that the apps work for the old and new iphone...
    they are not neglecting the old iphones which is good.
    so 2.0 Iphone FW will be the same for 1st gen and 2nd gen.
    thats my opinion
    OTB 1.1.2 iPhone
    Firmware 1.1.4
    Activated/Jailbroken/Unlocked
    Calls In/Out: Yes/Yes
    SMS In/Out: Yes/Yes

    Camera, you call the original iphone thingy a camera, you cant take photos in low light so a flash/light would be obvious and easy addition, mechanic zoom using the volume button and a better 5mil pixel camera! All basic and stupid of Apple not doing it! And let's not even mention video!

    The main reason not to buy this new iPhone is the Apple policy to lockdown their customers.

    The second reason is:

    The crippled Bluetooth and now the GPS (No voice assistance and itinerary calculation) with its simple refreshed pin to tell you "you are here", really lame...

    The third reason is the Camera's joke. come on 2MP...
    Guess who's gonna introduce a new "obsolete" camera sensor for the 3rd Gen iPhone.

    I'll stay on my 16GB 1st Gen iPhone and will not buy this joke until they unlock the features that should have been there since day first.

    Apple's "think different" is gone, say hello to "you are free to do what we want you to do".

    For me the big thing is the camera. I dont care about the front facing camera, but come on, my problem with the gen 1 was always the lack of a good camera and a flash!!... We all new 3g + gps were coming but i really was hoping for a good camera!!!!

    Also the lack of a 32g model, i really thought that was on the cards to.... As for the choice of colors thats Apple, apart from iPod shuffles they dont offer any of there products in anything other than black of white, and Apple products look great! The plastic back i am not sure about but I think only time will tell, will have to wait to get my hands on one.

    The other thing is the business of activating. Someone made a good point earlier that what if a phone needs to be restored? Are genuine users going to need to go back to O2 shops every time? I think this is another case of time will tell as to how this will work and how they will be sold, and O2 are saying on there website that they will be selling PAYG versions! Problem solved! (although how much will they be??... Lol.)

I know there are lots of really "enthusiastic" people telling us to shush about the camera and stop stomping on Apple's momentous occasion. (Also, I am seriously very excited about the 3G iPhone as well and by no means am saying this is a complete letdown)

    However, come on! this may be one of the first phones with 3G capability that has no front camera for video calling :S That is like producing a car with no glove compartments! or maybe a chair with a hole in the seat! it is just poor design! I own enough ipods, a mac book, a mac desktop to realize: APPLE DOES NOT SUCK AT DESIGN! Come on, most design students would agree with me on this! But seriously, this is a flaw in their thinking.

    Also if any of you iPhone fanatics are also Jap Exotic/Euro/Asia import phone fantatics... That side of the world sincerely loves video calling (well at least I am positive Asia does...) So if you see the crazy world of Japanese phones, they twist and turn in so many ways to ensure that video talking is easy, fun, and convenient! (Google the 905i and 906i series of DoCoMo)

    Anyways enough of my random rant. I still love the large bright touch screen. IMHO it's still the best touchscreen phone available. However I would just say that, the biggest letdown of all will be if Apple sees this and schedules another 32GB upgrade at the beginning of next year with a front facing camera and further alienate all us "enthusiastic" iPhone addicts by killing the 8GB 3G iPhone. *sigh*
    I suspect Apple is rushing a product that, should have had another 6 months design time built into the planning phase. The phone's spec's are mediorce at best. Given other suppliers already have 3g with internet built in + GPS + 8GB Storage etc, this showing from apple is dissapointing at best. The ONLY thing it has going for it is the £100 price tag. My view is the 16Gb should be £100, with the 8GB @ £69.99.

    Anyway, you can bet your bottom dollar within 3 months - the 8GB will be obsolete, 16GB the base, 32GB maybe even a 64GB storage, and they HAVE to stick a front facing camera in the phone.

    For me personally, i wont be buying it, there are better phones out there at this moment in time..

    Totally agree however isnt this what apple normally do?

    E.g. trickle things slowly into a product hence they can keep releasing new gens!

    Im sure they have not done things like new camera, better GPS on purpose so in 6 months time we will be stunned when a new revided model comes out and we al go WOW!

    Don't get me wrong it is a nice update, but thatís all it is, nothing revolutionary like the v1 was.

    I thought the haptic keyboard could have been a cool addition if done properly, maybe a slightly better camera, definitely with 30fps video capability and a flash for photos.

    Sticking with the same screen and processor was kind of necessary as keeps both models on the same dev platform which is pretty important for such small market share, would have been a disaster to leave the v1 behind.
