I am def getting the new one in white! I hope jailbreak comes out before too long after release so I can get my slider! I had a custom slider of my car made and it is awesome! It is available in cydia under 2011 Camaro..check it out!
I highly doubt I will eligible for the upgrade in time for the release of the new iPhone unless AT&T bends its rules which I doubt. I figure it will be perhaps a 6 month wait. I hope not but very possible. I signed up with a new contract in November 2011.
