    that was i think a pretty good move on apples part. i cant imagine the frustration going from the 1st to 2nd gen devices.

    I like the fact users won't have to repurchase cases and accessories. Backwards compatibility is a good thing for users.

    Hell, yes. I have a couple of cases and screen protecters I don't have to get rid of.

    Fashionistas who want to show off that they have the latest/greatest iPhone are likely disappointed because there's no new outward bling blang to make it in-your-face obvious. (Though maybe they can run around yelling "I'm shooting video without jailbreak!!!!111")

    Personally, I'm fine. I'm always happy when Jony Ive flexes his design muscle, but not just for designs sake.

    Next gen unibody aluminum?

    yeah. i like it because i wont be looking outdated with having the 3g. hope that doesnt sound too silly, but its true. plus i think the design of the 3g is beautiful! but.... i do think it is strange that its a different phone, yet looks the same

    I love it. My sister has a 1stGen iPod Touch. I've been so use to my iPhone 3Gs curve back that when I hold her iPodT it feels weird and almost uncomfortable.

    However, I did wish that the back of it was matte. If anything, I wish it was like the back of the Ai iMac. I love the feeling of the back of the iMac.

    I don't mind the design of the 3G,so it's no big deal for me. I thought the new one would look similar,just maybe thinner.

    I love the 3G design. Its thin and feels great in hand. Its the perfect size for containing a 3.5 inch screen.

    If you own a 3G iPhone, how could you not love the design being the same. I have 3 different cases, 2 extra screen protectors, a belkin fm transmitter. Now with the update to 3.0 I can use the bluetooth headset that has been gathering dust since I switched to the iPhone.

    Im happy with it. I'm not sure just how much sexier you could make it. It's gorgeous!! All i care about is what the phone can do. Apple nailed the best looking device last year, now they are nailing and locking down the best features. We can finally stop hearing everyone else say what there phones can do without jailbreaking. The iphone is close to being 99% perfect in looks and in what the phone can do.

    I would've wanted the matte backing, so it doesn't show the many fingerprints. But I'm happy with the 3G design anyway.

    The Xbox 360 doesn't look the same as Xbox, the PS3 doesn't look the same as PS2. No new "upgrade" usually looks the same, it's the american way so no I'm not happy. I mean.. does a BMW M3 look the same since 2000? Imagine if all cars from the same manufacturer looked the same.. interesting.

    I'm happy. My cases and docks will continue working. Plus we won't have to wait months for all new accessories to hit the market- a wide variety is already available.

    Well if it came with the iPhone Apple would have to raise the price. If they did not what would be in it for them?

    I can only imagine the millions of dollars Incase, DLO and whomever would lose with people having to buy new cases etc. Great for consumers but a huge mistake business model wise.

    They don't have to raise the price to include the dock. They are making $3600 per iPhone sold in Canada over 3 year contract. They are paid back in full for the phone within a few months.

    They took the dock out of the box to make the packaging smaller. **** move apple, **** move.

    Apple used to include SOOO MUCH with iPods.
    They gave you a software CD, a CASE (which they damn well should!), the screen used to have a cover over it (WTF HAPPENED TO THAT) which would be VERY useful for iPhone and iPod touch, and they used to include a port cover for the dock connector which would be extremely useful for keeping the dock connector clean.

    UGH! This really irks me especially since the iPhone is supposed to be such a premium device and yet all they give you is the bare minimum of what you should get.
