Just used my friend's 4s with iOS6 and it ran smooth as butter on 3D maps...

Yep

The maps are pretty sweet but way less detailed.

Probably prefer Google.

Whats the go with the new ones? They have a falling out with Google or something?

Since Walmart is open 24 hours, what time would iPhones be available for sale there?

I was wondering this too, but keep in mind they have a preorder list and must go through the list first (according to the sales rep there).

I just read that they are only getting the 16GB versions. I'm looking to get a 32gb.

So looks like an early drive-by AT&T in the morning, depending on what time they open up.

Sadly, I double checked against my co-worker's phone and this is indeed true. Map detail of San Francisco is likewise horrible...

The sad part is that by the time Apple catches up to Google in this picture, Google will have set themselves apart by an equal amount of progress in terms of mapping data

Anyways, I went to my local mall and saw that they were organizing a huge line that goes from the Apple store, to all the way outside wrapping around the side of the mall. No one was in line yet (they didn't start) but they had 5-6 security guards there.

It's spelled Tokio in other parts of the world. The universe does not revolve around the U.S.

BTW, I saw a girl with the new earbuds at starbucks today. Are they selling this already separately? I am sure they were the new earbuds, but her phone looked like a 4/4s.
