After waiting in line at my local Apple store this afternoon for about 1.5 hours I finally walked out with my 16gb black 3g. Needless to say I was very happy and immediately canceled my direct fulfillment order with AT&T (placed on the 13th). After playing around with it for a couple of hours the two things that I have noticed most is the improved speeds with 3G and the extremely noticeable improvement in sound quality. I can hear others much more clearly, the difference was frankly shocking. And since I live in a city with amazing 3G coverage I was very impressed with the improved speeds. For only $15 more a month, I am very happy with my purchase.
