    Yes, but that violates your legally binding contract with AT&T - something I will not endorse at all.

    That contract is full of more holes than matter on the atomic level.

    I love a lot of the features that iOS4.2 offers for my iPhone and AppleTV2, but there is one feature that I would love to see, or rather hear. It would great to have the AppleTV have an option to stream the sound to the iPhone so I could watch a movie in the bedroom on the ATV2, but listen to the audio on my earphones on my iPhone. This would allow me to watch my programs without disturbing my better-half that is asleep next to me. The iPhone would act as a wireless headphone receiver and a remote for the ATV2.

    I'm disappointed with 4.3. Why no personal hotspots for 3GS? I mean, the still sell the phone, so it's obviously not obsolete.

    I refuse to believe it has something to do with performance.

    ETA: Apparently I was wrong... Must be hardware limitations of the Wireless chipset of the 3Gs. It has to be something since you can tether via bluetooth and USB with the 3GS.

    mmmm... that is a bummer, I missed that. Maybe technical or perhaps a good way to sell iPhone 4s?

    They will probably unify everything at iOS 5

    No mention of the 4 finger gestures that were being trialled in the developer builds. I wonder if this means they're out for the GM, or simply not being promoted?



    I'll be sad if they are gone, as I've got very used to "full hand pinching" the screen to return home, and full fingered pulling up the widget bar to move between apps.

    Home sharing for iOS was long overdue.



    Too bad iOS 5 wasn't shown though. Honeycomb is streets ahead of iOS now so Apple really should have teased some features if nothing else.

    Big time. For playing up the idevice audio/video ecosystem this should have been here long ago.

    I'm not sure I would say its far ahead if any, but showcasing new features this early could also allow other mobile OSes to implement and steal the thunder from some new super sexy feature we all didn't know we needed yet.

    That's difficult to say. Perhaps Apple has just now gotten it working in a satisfactory way.

    Exactly how do you qualify this?



    Especially seeing as their is no shipping tablet using Honeycomb yet.

    How about some features everyone would use? Like Voice Dial (!) and system wide speech to text.... Android has both and they are superb features....

    How about some decent file management? Getting docs in and out of the iPad is horrible. That's what I'm waiting to see in the next version.

    It would be nice if AirPrint was opened up to other printers besides HP. Any word on that. The press release just mentions it as an existing feature of iOS 4.3

    The 'mention' during the beta was that they weren't ever going to be included in 4.3 final.

    You must be joking! Those are hardly features that put andriod "streets ahead". it shows you have a total lack of understanding about what the iOS platform is and does, and the functionality that is actually available on iOS devices. Those are minor features to the overwhelming majority of people, and in fact, are just that "features", not a platform/ecosystem. Further, apple will, at some point in time, have similar expanded features as those when the time is right based on performance, and ease of use and implementation. Also, the iphone absolutely has voice dial to access all your contacts, and speech to text is available in many incredible apps, including googles own apps available on iOS devices. So before you make such ridiculous comments, you really should have a thorough understanding of what you are talking about.

    I stand corrected on the voice dial. On system wide speech to text,my droid had it and I loved it. Sending text messages and emails with built in speech to text is the one feature I miss most. No having to use the nuance app and then cut and paste. Love most everything else about my iPhone though. By the way this is my third iOS device,pilgrim.
