    That's no at all hat I was commenting on. Just the fact that as soon as jobs opens his mouth all the consumers that don't actually know anything about technology get all wet and immediately assume that its top notch in innovation and that everything else is of lower status.

    I'm not commenting on a persons choice because as that is an opinion and preference there's nothing really dispute.
    I totally understand. It's all based on matter of opinion and what fits you the best really. What you describe goes both ways. You get Android folks who say Android is the best and you get the same for Apple devices. Just something we have to live with. Me being on both sides of the fence try to stay neutral but when I see something really good, I'll speak up no matter who makes it.

    Look at the resolution. Then look at what an IPS display actually is. AMOLED is only better when it comes to power use, and even then, its not THAT much better. One thing that the IPS display will NOT suffer from is the horrible daylight visibility of AMOLED displays. (I have an N1, and its unusable in any sort of bright light)

    Its pure ignorance to say that they created this screen 'for the sake of being different'.
    Combination of smaller screen and higher resolution sounds horrible tho. I guess we'll see.
    this can be proven by the surprising # of sales for the Ipad....I mean...really? that is just a huge itouch....
    Exactly *facepalm*

    Actually the new iPhone is very impressive. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not calling it how it is. I own Android devices as well as Apple products and I can appreciate good tech when I see it. So bashing the OP for him wanting the new iPhone is really not warranted.

    all i can say is that the iphone might be nice now (though it is locked up like a bank safe unless you jail break it) but at the pace android is going in like 4 or 5 months the iphone will be outdated haha. and everybody who bought an iphone has to wait a whole year for an improved version. we only wait like 2 or 3 months

    Hear me out before I get kick off the bus. I've been totally infactcuated in evo news ever since it was anncounced back a ctia. I love my EVO even though it has a small defect ( a pit on the edge of the glass screen) waiting on bestbuy to get some in this week for a replacement. I know most folks here EVOs are probably perfect, but this has made me question the quality of HTC because my old sprint mougal had 2 dead pixels that I just dealt with. But, having seen this apple video of the manufacter process of the iphone 4 I'm seriously considering canceling my evo before the 30 period is up.



    It just looks like a higher quality product overall. Hopefully when my bb gets my replacement evo in soon and I'll feel better, but right now this iphone is making me question my decision.

    Might want to compare side by side before deciding. And don't forget, Apple is a paternal nanny that decides what is best for you. They'll suck you into an Apple only ecosystem. If that's what you want, the iPhone is probably better for you.

    No doubt the new iPhone is a very solid device. That's why I have an EVO and a iPhone. Best of both worlds.

    See we all can get along, right?

    Without starting a "my carrier is better than your carrier" thread - AT&T, in my area, is by far the best carrier. That being said, I always give the advice to people who are in the hunt for a new cell phone - choose the best carrier for you and then make your choice of device based on what is available to you.

    so how do you manage two devices? two numbers etc.?

    Google Voice? other gymnastics and contortions?

    Two numbers yeah. Not a fan of Google Voice. What I usually do is simply forward my iPhone number to the Android device when I want to use that since that is the number everyone knows. AT&T does not charge to forward calls to another carrier.

    Of course the Evo would lose on that apple fanboy BS site.

    960x640 screen to start? I'm not sure why some people always assume Apple has to revolutionize the cell phone. Fact of the matter is they did in 2007 and they keep building on that but in no way should anyone expect some out of this world improvement each and every year.

    Better resolution, "FaceTime" and better battery life are probably the top 3 for a lot of people.
