Re: Anybody NOT pre-ordering?
This has been a large factor in my decisions every time I upgrade my phone. iOS updates are largely controlled by Apple and not the carriers. Also, iPhone doesn't have all that pre-installed, non-removable carrier specific junk on them. I think this has probably caused more than one person to decide to go with iPhone over Android. It always annoyed me when I bought a BB and it came with Verizon or AT&T stuff that I couldn't get rid of easily. The Androids I used to work with also suffered from that. Additionally, I don't like that manufacturers could customize the interface to the point that instead of being able to learn and train on one specific interface, I had to know how TouchWiz, SenseUI, Motoblur, etc. all worked/behaved when trying to walk someone through configuring/troubleshooting over the phone. iOS was consistent across the iPhone variants, and it was easy to support remotely.
