The setup asks whether you already have an AT&T account and you'd just like to add your iPhone to it, or if you're creating a brand new account. Users can also activate two or more phones all from the comforts of their pajamas and iTunes.
For those who can't live by 200 monthly SMS messages alone, the plan selection screen offers two upgrade options that might appeal only to the heaviest of texters. The next step up from 200 is a whopping 1500 total messages for $10, with unlimited costing $20.
This 'Put new events in...' option is, in a way, a little disappointing to me, because I was hoping calendars would sync perfectly between iPhone and iCal. Looks like this won't be the case, though I can, in theory, kind of understand. I've tried categorizing events into separate calendars when entering them on other mobile phones, and it was admittedly a bit of a pain.
Now this last one is the bizarre detail that has both us and commenters puzzled: notice anything weird? How about that 74.40 GB capacity? The end of the video zooms in and out of the iTunes window, clearly showing the iPhone in the left sources list and a 7.2 GB capacity in the Summary tab, but this capacity rating at the bottom of the window has us scratching our heads. Are they performing some trickery here, using an 80GB 5G iPod to demonstrate some of this synching stuff? Or did they use a pre-production 80GB iPhone to hint that in just a few months, all the early adopters are going to experience iPhone envy all over again? Your guess is as good as ours here.
That's about everything we noticed from the video - but did we miss something? You know what to do.
