Nuance Dictation in iOS 5, unlocked iPhones coming to U.S. Apple Stores?

Twitter user Chronic, a past source of Apple leaks, posted a couple of interesting notes this weekend pertaining to iOS 5 and the iPhone. In one post, he links to a pair of screenshots purportedly from an iOS 5 device showing Internal Settings menus that contain options related to Nuance speech recognition technologies. One shot references a Mic on the space key, and the other Nuance Dictation, suggesting that iOS 5 users will have the option to tap a button on the virtual keyboard to start/stop dictation as an alternative to manually typing out a message. In the second, he claims that unlocked iPhones are headed to U.S. Apple Stores for a Wednesday rollout, with the following part numbers: MC603 (16GB, Black) MC604 (16GB, White) MC605 (32GB, Black) MC606 (32GB, White). If true, it would mark the first time Apple Stores in the U.S. offered unlocked iPhones; there is a possibility that the rollout could take place on Tuesday instead.

Having UNLOCKED iPhones would be terrific for ALL consumers! It’s about time American phone users have access to UNLOCKED iPhones found in Europe and in Asia!
Since ATT NO LONGER has the exclusive rights to the iPhones, it makes sense for the ATT iPhones to be UNLOCKED after the 2 year agreement. After that, the consumer should contact ATT to get the UNLOCK CODE for the iPhone!
BUT… ATT REFUSES to provide the Unlock Code even AFTER the 2 year agreement has ended!
THIS is another reason to HATE ATT!!!!
