Yeah, disappointed at the lack of a fresh look, but I like the new functionality. Unless there are even more color choices then 3gS owners will blend in with 3g owners lol.

16 and 32 gigabyte... virtually the same price... blah blah blah...

nothing really new and flashy... it'll have the same 3.0 operating system... you'll just have a better camera, and video capabilities...

and now they're dropping the price of the 3G's...

WTF were you expecting? The iPhone is the sexiest phone out there....why would they change it. They are adding software to make it better...a hell of a lot better.

a la 3.0

No new design. Minor improvements. Voice commands that other phones have had for years. No new colors. Only a 3MP camera when other have had 5MP+ for at least a year. I'm actually disappointed.

I guess the good thing is that us 1genrs still feel like we've been ahead of the game for 2 years now. We will get the benefits of 3.o without the need to buy new hardware. Maybe the 1gen phone was really light years ahead of it's time!
