The verdict so far is very good. Though I expect rampant failures after I write this (my own karma playing out that only I understand). I'm very surprised at how much brighter and crisper everything is. Not sure how they pulled that off. And my 3G is noticeably faster. Very nice. I am not bothered by what's not there. (So sick of all the haters) But then, I'll be an iPhone 4 owner shortly anyway. So what the hell about it all.
Off to get my cradle tomorrow.
