After seeing Comparision vids of the 3G (3.0) vs the 3GS
What was the reason to get a 3gs again?
Even Engadget seemed underwhelmed. I was actually contemplating getting one but after what I've seen with my 3.0 3g and their vids I have to say: what is the point?

Well... the video was just comparing speeds of the application loads.
The camera is better with 3.0 and also autofocus, tap to focus and more.
The video recording... although you can jailbreak, that still doesn't make the quality better.

The speed differences between the 3g and 3gs will become more apparent as developers begin to utilize the power of the 3gs. It's not just a matter of the compass or camera, but the hardware platform the phone is built on. I wouldn't be surprised to see great apps developed that will be unavailable to the 3g simply because it's not powerful enough to run them.

I doubt that will happen anytime soon, unless they don´t want to make money
On other hand, apps focused on stuff like the video camera, macro capability, compass, those will surely come out, and will be 3gs only. But that happens also right now, with the distinction between iphone and ipod touch

Lastly, if you don't want to buy, or can't afford the 3Gs, that's fine. But don't start dumping on others because they have elected to purchase the 3Gs. If you are mad at Apple for not implementing more features then say so, no need to try to ruin the 3Gs experience for the rest of us.

And that is exactly why since the iPhone came out , they've been posting articles about apple products with mediocre attitudes. The way Engadget began to write about apple products has changed since the iPhone coverage took over their site in 2007. They don't even cover apple news as they use to --- BECAUSE of the commenters. They still blast their products...
I don't read anything they have to say about apple.

Did you watch WWDC while massaging Job's arse? Because if you did you would see how sorry their lineup is:
OSX Leopard - The Service Pack that could
MacBook price drop - Still overpriced, 1500 for a 15 inch barebones laptop...100 bucks per inch....crap
Iphone 3gs - mediocre upgrade
Ipod shuffle - (Not at WWDC) but still crap
Crap Crap Crap. Apple isn't trying anymore.

Did you copy and paste that from a comment from one of Engadget Apple articles ? You sound like one of them.
I honestly don't care about what others say. I don't go ( to engadget ) there period. Not to boast apple or " troll "... which is why i don't reach much of their content.
Like I said before, if you don't like it, don't buy it. Go buy a Zune HD.

See what I mean?
Any way it is now the eve of the 3GS launch and despite some of you trying to warn people of how much this phone is not worth the upgrade it seems that 500,000 phones is the early prediction for the 3GS weekend. Sounds like alot of people are gonna be screaming fast by tomorrow!
