The new hardware is nice, but there's not really enough there to justify upgrading from a 3GS. Gyroscope? Meh. Video chat? Double meh.

The HD video recording and updated camera are the best parts to me but I can wait a year to get at it.

The big head scratcher for me is Apple inviting Netflix on stage when the new AT&T data plans make streaming video way too expensive unless you have wifi.

Is it really a head scratcher?

1) I'd be surprised if Netflix is allowed to be used over 3G. But if it is...
2) Apple gave AT&T a heads up, causing AT&T to change their plans to limited, allowing them to rake in some extra cash.

I think I'm going to swallow my pride and buy an Apple product for the first time.

One of the live blogs I was following mentioned Netflix will be accessible via both WiFi and 3G.
