You get better view of the phone, 100% forward-compatibility, as well as all the cradle functionality.
That's actually not a terrible idea. I'll still probably hold out as I won't get much benefit from the plug-in features and who knows, maybe the iPhone 5 (or whatever it is called by then) has better speech-to-text that would enable full email/sms correspondence over Bluetooth or the iDrive system.

Yes, I like the console mount used with the tilt swivel holder.
