Nokia and RIM should hold hands as the slide down the tubes so they won't be lonely.

On Oct. 7th I will be walking into the nearest Sprint store to prepurchase the 4S. Then, hopefully, since I am not camping out overnight, lol, I will have one on the 14th. I have an undeniable desire to do this even though by November I will undoubtedly again be bored with my phone....

I really love the camera in my iPhone4, I use it more than the actual telephone part. I tend to text, email or use facebook messages the most. I post photos directly from the phone that I process in an Photoshop app in the phone. It definitely has replaced a point and shoot, while not as good as my G11 was, it is better in that I have it with me all the time and it's really changed my attitude about keeping my vision in tune by shooting a lot more. Often when I have something extra nice I'll process it at home in Lightroom which had a calibration for the iPhone listed as Apple. I did a workshop with 16 teenagers last summer to help them use their smartphones as cameras better. When I started the class I asked how many were on facebook and all of them raised their hands, then I asked how many had posted photos from their smartphones and they all raised their hands. It makes sense to me. I absolutely love the iPhone camera.

One thing also nice is the upgrades don't cost me anything. The last two uprades I've sold my old iPhones via Craigslist and had the cash in hand in two to four hours and this covered the upgrade costs. The last time I was busy running errands and didn't get around to canceling my Craigslist post for 6 hours from the time I'd origionally posted it and there were something like 51 emails from people saying they wanted it and would come right now to meet me with cash.

For me it's a no brainer to keep using this and to appreciate the phone. I still use my MKIII but for other than non paying work - not often anymore. Yes in some ways the iPhone4 has replaced it but in a different way, I actually love the challenge of it's simplicity. [IMG][/IMG]

Once Apple figures out folding optics, it's game over for the P&S market. Why that camera segment hasn't innovated (wi-fi, touch screen, onboard apps, etc) is beyond me. My P&S S95 is going up on ebay tonight. We've had a good run, but it's one less device I'll have to worry about. My S95 served me well, but I barely used it because I always used my iPhone 4. It got most use in bars, clubs and other dim lit places, that's where the S95 shined. Frankly those days are over. Memory card and 3 batteries and the device if anyone wants it.

Nice pictures. I don't even know if my phone has a camera. I'd look at it, but I'm not sure where it is right now. I went thru the "smart" phones (IPhone, Blackberry and Moto Android) and decided they were a PIA, so I pulled an old dumb phone out a desk drawer and activated it. Works fine for the 10 or so calls I get a week. I know it can do text, because I've seen messages displayed that I have a new text message. I've told people if you want to talk to me - call. I ignore texts, I have no clue how to deal with them on this phone. The user manual is long gone, I doubt I'd read it even if I had it.

I knew Jobs was in bad health...but I honestly didn't see this coming quite so soon. He will be missed.

I ordered one of these today, not because it has an improved camera but because I was due for a new phone. I had been using a Blackberry for years but they just don't seem to get it. This is still a phone and I cannot imagine anyone using it for anything other than snapshot type of pictures when you don't have a real camera around.

He must of ordered the iPhone 4 from Sprint. Sprint is now letting you preorder the iPhone 4 but if you want the new iPhone 4[S] you have to wait until the 7th.

Agreed, but Nokia has N9 changed all that. It's design surpasses any current phone and it has same lens and camera resolution new iPhone has. I'll know more in couple of weeks when I get mine.
