    I know that the only real differences will be the different radio and a redesigned antenna/frame.
    Has any of the bloggers tried/posted a review of a Verizon iPhone? Just to make sure there are no issues like you normally get with 1st gens of phones.

    ...this isn't the 1st gen of phones. This is the 4th (5th really). Just a different carrier.

    The difference is going to be the radio... software is pretty much a known entity. And the FCC does not approve radios that are crap... there will be the usual differences between GSM & CDMA and performance differences in frequencies used.

    I have a co-worker who's preordered one. It will be interesting to see how it differs from my AT&T version.

    Simple. They signed up for the pre-order notification but actually haven't pre-ordered one.

    Or they are confused and ordered one from AT&T thinking they will activate it on Verizon 2/3.

    There have been a couple videos from places like CNET in which they demoed the Verizon iPhone and provided a write up saying there was a noticeable improvement in the reception and they did not experience the "death grip."

    That's probably a combination of design changes to reflect the differences in frequencies between GSM & CDMA, and also the previous flawed design.

    Exactly. No one has pre-ordered one yet, that's why there's the long thread about staying up till either midnight or 3am to order it the second it becomes available.

    I was sadly misinformed. SHE told me she preordered one and when I asked her about it today, she said "well I AM going to preorder one". My mistake.

    As to the OP's question... Yes there has been limited comparison/demos. CNET did a speed test

    iPhone speed test: Verizon vs. AT&T | iPhone Atlas - CNET Reviews

    If you Google it, there are numerous pics and articles detailing the similarities and differences.

    It is very location dependent, did CNET clear cache, history etc. on both phones? Lots of unanswered questions.

    Or hopefully sooner if we pre-order on the third.
