    the only thing that changed physically is the back the buttons and the headphone jack, why not a whole new UI or a new iphone OS X??? they could've made the screen even bigger but no they kept it...its kinda dissapointing to me. But I want your opinion

    it was never going to have a new OS or a bigger screen resolution as it had to be the same as the old iPhone and iPod Touch's.

    The physical features that you listed, and are disappointed with, are features that can't be changed because they were trying to follow the same look as with the previous generation of the iPhone. This isn't so much a change in appearance, rather with the features it is now able to support, including official third-party application support, 3G networking support, Enterprise support and more. The physical changes that did happen were only minor changes, to improve certain things.

    Also, this is your personal opinion, and I'm sure many will disagree with you (Including myself).

    Its not a tablet PC or something for heavens sake!

    And subtle design changes plus 3G and proper GPS plus pay as you go in UK equals epic win

    Exactly, like honestly, you have to remember that this is a phone. We don't want to be talking on a huge hunk of a device, remember that. If we wanted a bigger screen, that's why we have computers.

    im just saying that apple could've put a little more effort in it to get the iphone to have a whole new ui and possible even thinner than the older one they could've worked a little harder on a new os but thats just my opinion

    And what is wrong with the iPhone OS itself? I don't see you asking BlackBerry to improve BlackBerry OS or Microsoft to improve Windows Mobile (Which you know they should).

    Apple's iPhone OS is fine the way it is. They've added tons of new features, Sure some small things aren't there, but it's doing just great. And now they're allowing 3rd Party software on a STABLE PLATFORM.

    As for Hardware, Remember this: The More you Add, the More money it costs.
