Wow, Samsung !!! - Low blow! Haven't you got court cases to go to? Writers note: When corporate entities start making comments like this (above) under the badge of Samsung it makes me want to not buy a Samsung product. Not because Samsung is a bad make but their marketing arms use tactics like this instead of merits. It is simpler to keep ones mouth shut , if that is not possible have an operation to put your foot in your mouth - it's simpler.

Wow, you spell like a 3 year old. I suggest you go back to school or get a manual vocation like a street cleaner. I do suggest you hide your cell phone because an idiot like you brings Apple into disrepute just by your virtual existence.

I hope the potential purchasers of the iDevices running iOS 6 have unlimited data plans. Talk about running data usage through the roof.... Oh, didn't VZW just end unlimited data for subsidized handsets?

In any event, wait a few and see what Android comes out with in response. Nothing like competition to make things better for consumers.

thats not a good thing because it will eat up data for both AT&T and Verizon users unless they have the old unltd data plan

1. Siri - Android has iris and s-voice
2. Facebook integration - HTC Sense has that already
3. Brand new maps, turn-by-turn navigation - Google maps
4. Phone app - Already have those features
5. Passbook - Theres an App for that

agreed,most of those new ios features have been on android handsets for quite some while now in various manufacturers own launchers UI or android os its self. This new ios is just apple catching up again. Most of apples announcements here are of a very "meh" variety.

Dude you are the most ill-informed person EVER. Every time you post, you post bogus or COMPLEATELY wrong information.

You are the dumbest person ever because you can't do a simple Google search just to see if you are correct or not.

You are the textbook definition of what an i$heep is. Man do you have any pride in yourself? Or are you THAT brainwashed that simple logic is as alien to you as the planet Venus?

Siri, Iris, and S voice are all gimmicks. They are simply toys nothing more. Siri only makes the iPhone an iGadget not a phone.....Nevertheless it is still a cool feature. I bet IOS fans are happy.

I think he meant expandable storage which even WP8 is going to have

I am very interested in what the OS will offer. Siri seems to be the main selling point so far. Betting they will offer more. Hard to imagine improvements to a personal assistant is all 200 additions.

Yea, it's nice that you can now use FaceTime over 3G. But that will mostly only benefit iPhone owners from Sprint.

They are still trying to figure out how to create a Metro UI for iOS and claim they have the patent on it so they can sue Microsoft and claim they created it. Once they do that, then they will update the ancient GUI they stole from Windows Mobile
