I saw this last night at the att store.  maybe the best phone i've ever seen.

I'm reserving judgement until next weeks Google event and the probable announcement of the next Nexus phone, but I agree, that is one gorgeous phone. I even prefer the smaller at&t model to the larger Sprint model.

I honestly don't really care, as long as it can call and text everything on top of that is just a bonus. If it wasn't for the Twitter app on my Blackberry I wouldn't use it for much outside of texting and calling people.

i'd suggest that you not waste your money on an new iphone or an android, if all that you want is calling and texting.  you can get a cheap, or even free, phone that will allow you to do that. 

you can even get a free iphone 3 when you re-up.  doesn't sound like you need version 4, so why pay $200 or more for it?
Just to have the latest phone I can get, I'd feel more safe with have a 4S for 2 years than some other phone that will likely go out of production in a couple months. I'll probably find more uses for it, the GPS seems pretty handy. But thanks for all the info!

It's over, people.  Pack up and go home.  I don't care what you do but you can't do it here.

Where will you GO?!??!?!   What will you DO!?!?!?!?!?  When your leader suddenly dies like this I guess it's like being thrown out into the universe.  My deepest sympathies.  Maybe his "dent" will catch you.

Hah! Because it makes such sense for Google to just give away the app for free to iphone users.
I mean there are some pluses to owning an Android; of course, I think Google has taken over my life even moreso than Apple.

I don't understand this claim that you have to pay for GPS on Iphone.   I used to have one and that wasn't true.  Has something changed or is that misinformation?

Here -  this is what I was referring to:
Google Maps Nav's Extras

While driving directions via Google Maps has been available on many mobile devices for years, including Apple's iPhone and iPod devices, Google Maps Navigation raises the ante by adding spoken turn-by-turn direction, something available only with extra-cost additions to the iPhone. Google Maps Navigation makes good use of the almost bottomless text and image resources of Google's search database and takes advantage of user input to make changes to its maps as necessary.

Turn-by-turn navigation solutions for the iPhone include products live CoPilot Live for iPhone from ALK Technologies ($35) and TomTom International BV's TomTom app for the iPhone ($100). Both products include maps of the U.S. and Canada that are stored on the phone. Maps of other countries and regions are available, but at extra cost

That article is 2 years old.... Just to clarify, the iPhone's built-in Maps application gives you free turn-by-turn driving/walking/bus-subway directions and full GPS functionality. It just doesn't speak the directions aloud while you're driving/walking/riding. For that, you can download the free MapQuest 4 Mobile app which has spoken turn-by-turn directions and live traffic updates. It's completely free, and it's one of the better reviewed iOS apps for driving directions. Also, the TomTom app is $50-60 these days, not $100.
