I wasn't worried about the phone not being upgradeable, only that they
would delay release until the software is ready because they keep
touting it as the "mass market release."

The only reason I'm waiting for the 2nd release before I buy is that the
higher speed processor, 2D video accel (yes, 2D, not 3D), and larger
capacity battery is worth the extra $150 to me.  The WiFi doesn't hurt

I am curious to know if they plan to sell the 2nd generation with the
same accessories, and what their plans for 3rd generation on are.
