I bought the international version before Christmas....I LOVE it.
As for the crippled part......not so much crippled, but at&t wanted LTE, which means they had to go to a different chip.
I didn't like removing the home button, but considering how apple gets their pants in a wad over every phone coming
to the USA market, maybe that played into it. My guess that the at&t version will have the usual bloat, and have tethering
disabled also. As for updates, with at&t, I wouldn't hold my breath for ice cream sandwich (android 4.0) coming anytime
soon. At&t pretty much doesn't update anything except the iphone, and that's because apple pretty much controls it.
That was another reason I bought an international unlocked version.
