@Behshad - Get a grip Troll. - I neither work for Apple nor do I own an iPhone yet. I'm just expressing my opinion. The N97 may well be an interesting phone, but the 3GS looks to be a good upgrade from my perspective. Frankly, I wasn't going to get any phone that couldn't do everything my Treo does and more. I needed turn by turn GPS and document editing still. With the new 3GS update, the iPhone has reached that threshold.
@iMuggle - Did you read all the WWDC announcements? They didn't really go on about MMS or Copy/Paste. There was a lot new there and yes they said the case changed - check out the Apple - iPhone - Technical Specifications webpage - look under Display - fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating). The speed improvements should also be really significant as BadAsh said.

It will be interesting to see what impact WWDC 2009 will have on the Palm Pre launch. I wasn't impressed with WWDC. I was impressed by Palm.

I was pretty underwhelmed. I understand it is tough to make a "big splash" upgrade for a phone every year, but I was left wanting more. The improvements they made are a great thing, esp the speed improvements. I was looking for some more though. A better camera and screen are the big ones. I would of also like to have seen a new case design with out the chrome. The upside about that is my 3g cases will still work on the 3gs.
the upgrade price is a bummer too.
the big thing today was about the Macbook Pro's which i am completely hyped about.

I saw a blog article regarding upcoming tethering plans for the iPhone. Looks like AT&T could be charging as much as 65/mo, more than double what VZW is charging.

I wanted a physically different device. I'm pretty sure apple knows the plastic is cheap and scratches easily. I like it for the feel but not the consequence of getting scratches using the device without a case.
Everything else is cool. Front facing cammy would be a bit much though I wouldn't have mind really.
I've been seeing things such as video isn't avialable on the 3G ... That's a crock of ish. But apple does that so you'll buy. Especially since the software update is and will always be free. At least video record...
Overall I'm pretty happy because the software is great but most importantly I can upgrade for the same price as I did last year for the same amount of money (for more space) -- which is a major problem now.

I'm not at all disappointed. This upgrade is almost *exactly* as momentous as the upgrade from the first gen iPhone to the 3G was--minor hardware improvements, double the capacity, slashed prices. I've been waiting for a storage capacity upgrade before I got tied in to a new 2-year contract; I think 32 GB is sufficient for just about everything I could want to put in my phone/mp3 player/movie player/book reader/apps purveyor. Yay!

And what list of features does the iphone have that best the others? I think you are delusional.

Yes, fart apps suck, this is true. However, there are some seriously great apps available on the platform and until another phone develops as lively a community as the iPhone, I'll be sticking with my iPhone.

-Video recording, have a digi-cam that does fine and is much better
-tethering, I got the iPhone so I don't have to carry around my laptop so will never use
I'm waiting until next year when the real new iPhone comes out. I want a higher resolution screen most of all, and OLED too boot.

AT&T responds to iPhone 3G S pricing and (lack of) features | Technology | Los Angeles Times
ATT's network doesn't even support 7.2 wireless technology and it won't until next year, at the earliest. This hardware upgrade...eh...

It's a failure. Even if you're a tech geek, it's a failure. In my opinion of course

The link you posted leaves the clear impression that ATT needs to upgrade its system to handle MMS.
But we already know this is false. ATT has message bundles that include MMS:

@infenit101 - Of course one can make a long list when there are hundreds of phones to compare. Which phone do you want to compare? Or are you here just to Troll? Hey, I said that I didn't own an iPhone, yet. Why? Because there were basic features that I was unwilling to do without. That said, I've envied the iPhone user experience (intuitive control, thousands of available apps - hundreds sans farts - HaHa, a beautiful large touch screen, a really good media player, and hundreds of available accessories). The features I needed are finally here and I think this is an outstanding upgrade. You don't - we get it - move on.
