    Along with probably about a million more... This will be my first iPhone since the original one. I've been on multiple Android handsets for the past several years. I used to love loading different ROMS all the time...now I just want it to work without the hassle. Don't get me wrong, Android devices can be great, but it's just time for a change for me. Plus, it'll fit in nicely with my mac mini and newest generation iPad.

    This coming from a guy who had run different flavors of Linux on the desktop exclusively for about the last 8 years. I still run OpenSuse at work (not my first choice for a Linux OS) but also have a MacBook Pro there. The MacBook Pro is probably what made me switch all around...

    Mine is now in Anchorage, AK.

    I've always been a Linux/BSD user, since the early 90s with Slackware. I prefer to stick with Debian flavors now though, mostly Ubuntu and Mint. I'm a Linux Admin by trade. I also have a 2011 mac mini as my main desktop and a 2009 mac mini running Snow Leopard Server.

    I'm not one of those Android fanboys who claims Apple sucks, the iPhone sucks, etc., but IMHO, I do think my EVO LTE beats any iPhone out there. I seriously considered an iPhone, but its small screen (even the new one is too small), its many costly apps (that were free on the Android market), but especially the ability to customize very easily my Android phone sold me on staying/going with Android over the iPhone.

    Apple makes good products, for sure, but I do believe that some Android phones are overall better than any iPhone.

    That's all mine says on apple.com as well. If you use Chris' method though you'll find it with UPS.

    Ordered from VZW and says it will ship on 09/21. I guess that means I'm not getting it until next week. I even ordered it within an hour of it being available on-line, too.

    My Verizon confirmation e-mail states "Deliver By: 09/21/2012".

    I've considered that to mean that it will be delivered by 9/21, not shipped by 9/21.

    I did have a conversation with a Verizon rep and their interpretation was different, but I think they're wrong, but we'll see ...

    If anyone did the Gazelle deal where they locked in the price in August, they changed the terms. Before you had to ship the old one by October 1, they changed it to the 10th.

    The app difference I think is more an ecosystem difference. Developers found that Android users are less likely to buy an app, even if its $1-$2. So even really popular ones like Rovio's games are generally ad supported instead.

    My main beef is in having to support Android phones, that not all are good. Some of my users seem to think a Huawei is similar to a Galaxy S3.
