    The new phone also has a bigger battery and more efficient processor, so battery life, which is a big issue for current iPhones, should be better.

    did the previous 3gs have wireless n as well? I think shooting videos and a flash for the camera are also biggies aside from the screen rez, chip upgrade, thinness, and video conferencing.

    i can't imagine what else a phone will offer until we move to 4g networks and even then...seriously what else aside from upgrades of the components?

    I'll be getting the EVO once I get back from a month tour abroad.

    Evo:

    4G
    Video Calling over 3G/4G
    Presumably Easier Tweaking
    Removeable Storage and Battery
    Presumably Better Camera/Flash (two LEDs for the flash)
    No iTunes
    No iTard

    iP4:

    Thinner and smaller
    Higher res screen
    Video Editing

    I doubt the iP4 will be able to take advantage of 802.11n due to device/memory lag.

    Honestly, I really wish that HPalm would come out with a new device asap, as WebOS pwns both Android and iPhone OS in many ways; i.e. great multitasking and universal search. I also really like the touchstone inductive charging and a physical keyboard. Alas, there's no news of a new WebOS device and my Pre is feeling slightly dated compared with the EVO.

    they originally wanted to add a dreidel but jobs was afraid of scaring off the gentiles so he added the gyroscope instead.

    As for the screen, frankly, I've never really found the iphone screen wanting. Even if you do go for higher rez, you're constrained by physical size so I don't think it makes too much difference.
    A 300+ dpi screen should make text extremely crisp. EDIT: Here's a closeup of new vs old.

    Conne will most certainly purchase a device that will revolutionize the way he masturbates.

    Even better, it's 326dpi. If they use that res for the next iPad, it will make a much better e-reader. The iAds thing doesn't bode well, imo.
