    Hmmm, Personal Hotspot will be a good feature! Looking like they are getting a couple ideas from Android though, seeing as they have been doing it since Froyo rolled out.

    I find it shocking Apple has not started using its elitist, pseudo-marketing logic on this one. They haven't called Personal Hotspot something like "HotspotTime" and call it its first for its kind; kind of like how they did with FaceTime. People actually think the iPhone is the first phone with video calling... Don't even get me started with the "Retina Display."

    Ignorance is bliss.

    I'll just start for you :p

    The retina display is actually a low-mid level screen. The reason for this being that the contrast ratio is only 800:1. This results in washed out, poorly reproduced colours with low saturation. The resolution also does not exceed the limit of if humans can see pixels. That limit is at 477 ppi, where the iphone only has 326.
