    I doubt it who wants to buy a 600 dollar phone and have to still pay for service when they can get a MP3 phone free when you buy service

    I may or may not be right, but does that price include 2-years service? I know that you must purchase the iPhone along with a 2-year agreement with Cingular, but I don't know if that price includes it.

    I'm personally sick and tired of apples crap.

    they program a decent piece of software.

    then they give it away.

    the catch is you buy a 70$ 4GB ipod for $200
    the catch is that $1200 mac which they sell for $1900
    the catch is that $300 iPhone which they sell for $600

    I'm sick and tired of Apple and even more sick of their legions of fanboys who promote the enriching of a multibillion dollar corperation so they can feal special for "deviating"

    Here's an idea, google the word 'linux', deviate, and join a real software community, not some bull---- a multi-billion dollar corporation shoves down your throat to coax your hard earned money from you.

    I would rather buy a Sony Ericsson W950i which is unlocked and comes with 4 Gigs, 3G (only in Europe :
    /), Touch screen, also with a great MP3 player for 100 Dollars less http://www.cellhut.com/productdetail.asp?ProductID=1871

    Because as the size of different things get smaller, they are all being merged into 1 device.

    Saves you having 1PDA, 1 camera, 1 phone etc.
    All you need now is one phone and the new ones are good replacements to low-range cameras/PDAs :)

    i'm going to buy it just for the vertical detection sensors
    those are sick.

    just wait, you'll end up wanting one.

    or perhaps, you could get

    1 good PDA, 1 Good camera, and 1 good phone

    instead of getting something which has to make sacrifices in one area to implement the others.

    Looks cool, but probably gonna cost enough to burn your pants down. Iphone ain't worth gettin in my opinion. All you need is a phone, and if you want a MP3 player, you should buy that seperately, might save $$. -_-
