I took it as standard on the phone itself so you can potentially switch:

"so if you travel, you can roam on other networks overaseas while still using CDMA at home in the US"

But, can you switch up here? That will be the real question.

Okay, just as I wrote that Phil starts talking about voice recognition.

I think Ars just crashed. They had a 'Testing' update then a java error. It looks like the site is back up but no new updates as of yet.

And AAPL drops $12+ because they created a great new phone but didn't change the version number. There's no need to occupy Wall St. The lights are on but nobody's home.

Voice recognition for text messaging on a phone is kind of silly if you think about it.

Because they are ALL crooks! They will tank the price, buy back in and make $$$ left and right... again. Each and every one of those idiots should be thrown in the hoosegow. Just like a week or so so they get the point.

Depending on the circumstances, it could be a hell of a lot more convenient than having to type it out.

Totally agree. I really like the voice recognition thing for all its uses. It's about time, Android has had this for quite a while (at least for texting.)

Bazooka,

For you but definitely not for me. I've been waiting to replace my aging IPhone 3GS for several months. The improvements in the 4 weren't enough to make me upgrade. The 4S, on the other hand, is a no brainer. The only thing that matter for me was Siri. Just not interested in it. The upgrades to the IPhone 4, though, no brainer. Definitely time to upgrade.

Everyone expected more—a larger iPhone 5 would've been nice. I was really underwhelmed at the changes to the Nano. Larger icons and a few watch faces is an anticlimax. The iPod Touch changes were also very minor... it now comes in white? Whoop de doo.

You can now get the 3GS for free, or the first gen 4 for $49.

I'll be upgrading, for sure.
