True, but with the new iMessenger, there really is no compelling reason to stay with RIM.

Looks like a lot of the new features are ideas from jail broken apps. Which is awesome, less reason to jailbreak.

Hopefully it will be available outside of the US as well. Main reason why these cloud music services have been a complete fail so far. Sent from Tapatalk.

Seriously excited about all this. A bit sad I'll have to wait until fall. It was amazing to me just how much was blatantly ripped off from other makers. iMessenger = BBM, Safari Reader = Instapaper, Notification Centre = Android notifications, Homescreen camera = Windows phone camera. Reminders and Newsstand reproduce the functionality of apps that already exist. Wireless sync is obviously huge. The "you no longer need a computer" aspect is great if you're offering one to your doddering grandma but pointless in real life where we all have huge media libraries to manage. I think the biggest thing they've done is Airplay sync. Streaming directly to a TV in real time is going to be huge in corporate settings (business presentations) and gaming. You buy an apple TV for $100 and you can stream all your games to the TV while using the phone/tablet as a controller. iCloud is pretty great, though I don't have more than one apple device so I'm not sure I'll be able to take substantial advantage of it. Here's the official list of updates from Apple, and here's Engadget's version.

Including all my low bitrate ones I downloaded from Napster ten years ago.... nice.

For me, the Reminders feature is the most practicable one, and it really, properly replaces the poorly designed iCal scheduling system.

Apparently Apple neglected to tell either AT&T or Verizon about iMessenger. Since it uses SMS its functionally like free text messaging to any other person who has an iPhone.

But it still uses data rates, so... Also, I wouldn't be surprised if AT&T / Verizon decided to limit this feature like they do with tethering american cell phone carriers, .

Until every teenager on earth owns an iPhone, text plans aren't going anywhere.

True but I doubt that would happen since this is Apple's attempt to kill off RIM.

True, but if everyone in your circle of friends owns an iPhone, you could severely cut back on your text message plan.
