    The coolest thing will be the ability to sync the devices with out hooking to to the computer as well as all every owned "I" device being synced to every owned "I" device automatically.

    I'm still curious if the AirPlay mirroring will work with the original iPad. I know they only mentioned the iPad 2 but I'm hoping this will be a pleasant surprise when it comes out next week.

    So excited. Can't wait til I get an iPhone 4S too so iCloud will sync my photos from my phone to my iPad. It'll be bliss!

    I can't wait to download it! I wish I were getting the iPhone 4S when it's released also, but I'll have to wait.

    Was about to buy an ipad 2 from an apple store. If I wait until after the 12th will iOS 5 be already installed?

    I can't see that happening that soon, you'll have to connect to iTunes regardless to install it. They may offer it instore.

    So glad it will be available for 3 GS iPhone though. Can't wait to try it out.

    unfortunately...to my understanding, the Airplay mirroring will only work for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, so HDMI for mirroring or just stick to regular airplay.

    maybe jailbreak allows this mirroring we speak of, but first worry about iOS 5.

    Yeah, but a lot of features will be missing in the 3GS.

    Yeah, that's a huge plus for me. I will no longer have to worry about trying to figure out how to get certain content from one iOS device to another. Really I never had to. I lost my iPhone 4 before I got my iPad 2. So I can't wait til Wednesday evening or when ever they'll release the update. And I can't wait until I'm able to get my hands on a iPhone 4S.

    It will depend on the hardware, the 3GS has much lower hardware spec compared to the 4' and 4S. If all the features are added it would drastically slow the phone down, or lag really bad.

    Keep in mind things like the video recording, the camera, picture editing might not make it because of the processor and camera I don't quite remember but the 3GS's camera is 2MP. The 4 and 4S are 2X and 4X that, not to mention the 3GS's process is a MHz processor not the today's standard GHz process. Plus the standard in GHz processors has been for a while dual core which really helps with application processing, games, and other types of media.

    The 3GS will be good, don't get me wrong, but it will not be like the 4 or 4S. If you're eligible for the upgrade get the 4S, or the 4 8GB model which is $99 but I would get the 4S. I'll post anything else that I find, hopes this helps.
