There's going to be a lot of greasy iPhones out there.
Cingular uses GSM and SIM cards, so the back will pop off to replace the SIM card/battery.

How much convergence do you/ we want?

I think I want my iPod / or mp3 player to have a good fm tuner
also a decent screen with images / jpgs
not sure about a camera or not
and a lot of storage 30 gig min. 80-100 gig would be nice.

I like my cell to have sorage for all contacts, good texting ability,
with email, and a decent screen would be nice, too.

and I guess at least a 3 mega pixal camera


I think pdas are a dying breed, they can be folded into a cell

I don't think I want all that folded into my music player

what do you all think?

well it's not just the storage space but the fact that it does pretty much everything, it's touch screen, and it looks beautiful. i mean, music, photos (not just storage but camera, and a good one for a phone), videos, wi-fi...all in a phone! and the browsing of albums looks cool as hell. i love the voicemail system too.

of course I don't have $600 to blow on this, I just got a new phone. but i can still look at it and

I think eventually we will just have one device for all those things. It'll take a while for it all to integrate well though.

I have a chocolate phone and don't use the mp3 capability because it drains the battery and I have a perfectly good ipod that I love.

As for cleanliness/smudges, it's easier to clean a smooth surface

It's easy to clean, but you'll have to do it a few times a day. The same screen you want to watch videos on, you will just have touched to select the video.

True, but for me to even consider buying in the future, it would have to be an iPod replacement. There's no way I'd carry around the iPhone and the iPod. Plus, you can't really hold that many videos, photos, and music all on 4 or 8Gbs. So, yes, it can do all this great stuff, but without the adaquate storage to back it up, it's nearly useless.

For me, it's pretty, but that's about it. And the fact that I just moved to Sprint and got the RED Razr...that was $65 with a 2 year agreement vs. $600 for the iPhone.

Wow. Though I would probably get annoyed with the ear print, that is one sexy phone, and the interface is just amazing! How they've managed to fit so many different things into one phone and have it all work together so seamlessly is really incredible.

Mad props to Apple for this one. I don't care about the price, cause I'm not going to buy one anytime soon, but this thing is going to be huge.

and using them to replace stereo systems

People said the iPod Photo was expensive and it was aimed at the high price end when it came out. Now, it's basically the standard 5G model everyone has.

In two years the iPhone will be cheap, refined, more available, and everyone will have one.

The capacity will increase, but I'd buy this as a phone first and a multiwhatever later.

I don't know about you guys but I live in a city and I plug into my music library every day. I have absolutely no need to carry 60GB of music around with me to Shuffle. I probably end up listneing to less than 0.5 GB of music files a day and maybe 0.25 GB of podcasts. Ideally I'd load up an 8 GB iPhone with a couple of albums and have it sync my Podcasts daily and I'd be happy.

I also don't know anyone who wants to carry around thousands of photos in a phone

The importance of this product is that is looks like it will be the first in a new generation of cells that will emphasize beautiful user interfaces and will at least give us the option of additional services like web browsing in a practical manner for the first time.

I say this thing will bomb .....but thats just me...

it has good features and it may look nice...nothing really makes me want to buy it.....

although..Apple could put a product called iDirt, and people would still flock to stores to buy them......

I think it might not live up to the hype as well and not sell great. It's not quite a breakthrough product like the iPod. My Samsung A707 already does most of what the iPhone does.
