Just a friendly reminder - iOS 4 launches today
As there will be many looking forward to June 24th when the next iteration of the iPhone commences with its official launch, there is something else to be happy about starting today – the long awaited release of iOS 4. Some time today, Apple will be giving the green lights to roll out the next evolutionary mark for their highly prized mobile platform that's consistently being fine tuned with each release. It's actually being rumored that 1:00 EST will be the moment when it starts getting pushed out to handset owners – so you'd probably want to get ready with it beforehand. All you need to do prior is to simply have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer and to perform a backup. We know that owners have been itching for this, but soon you'll be able to find solace with all the packed goodies along the ride with iOS 4.

Bah! I was hoping it was going to be at 11 a.m. EST... I am really excited about this one...but I am very interested in seeing if the multitasking really doesn't kill the battery. If not, Apple may have set a new standard for the process...we shall see...

Background yes, widgets no. But seriously, of widgets are the only thing that Android offers then I don't think we iPhone users are missing out on much.

Actually, Android offers better networks and a lot more customization on the phones. I personally love being able to download sounds and movies straight to my device (not from itunes, from any website that would normally allow it from a pc) :) Being able to use micro sd cards for extra storage is awesome too! I will submit to the Apple App Store (it is huge), but Androids' is catching up. Also, the iphone does have a much better Facebook app. I really wish someone would do something about the Facebook app on Android. It is horrible. It's also a personal choice, I am integrated with Google, Google Calendar, Google Docs, etc... and a "Google" phone just makes sense for what I use most.

i agree facebook for android is terrible, but i don't use the app anyway. i just use the full facebook site.

There's a Download Manager in the app store that lets me download sounds and movies straight to the phone from safari, and I'm also connected with my Gmail account and Google Calendar through the native iphone applications and also integrated with Google Docs through Documents to go. It seems like basically the same thing to me.
