That's a good bit better than $130 and 3G speeds.

Agreed. It seems to me that it's been awhile since we've had a really good "one more thing" product introduction from Steve.
Don't give up hope yet... you never can be quite sure what Steve is hiding up his sleeves. We all know that Apple's preference is to keep the fans guessing until the last possible moment, and I seem to recall that they've even gone so far as to start misleading rumors of their own, with just enough of a seed of truth in them to sound convincing. Who's to say that this isn't another situation in that vein? Perhaps they specifically allowed Verizon and AT&T to make announcements, in order to make us all believe that those are the only two players in the game... while the reality might well turn out to be quite a bit different when Steve finally takes to the stage.
Personally, I still think that a wide-open playing field, where all carriers (big and small) can offer the iPhone would absolutely be the best move that Apple could make, both in terms of market-share and mind-share. Hopefully, Steve agrees with me....
