I imagine they'll make a nano version of it which will not have the blackberry features. Most people do not need to have 24 hr access to e-mail nor can they afford to pay for the really expensive plans (upwards of $75/month). So I figure they'll have an iPhone that's just a phone (+ iPod) which will be much smaller and then the regular iPhone. Which will get better with new generations.

Since I'll be working somewhere I'll get a tech budget, I'll just get an iPhone instead of the Blackberry. It's really only $100 or so more expensive than the high-ends. But I'm willing to wait a year or two for 2nd gen.

I'm sure bugs (which are like none) are going to be solved with free software updates, NOT hardware updates.

I'm sure that won't happen, Steve Jobs at D5 or in an interview recently said that this is not the case. Though I think a widescreen iPod only (as 6th gen) can exist and be tested in Cupertino now...

God I love that thing! I can't wait to see my friend's when he gets it this Friday! I will just want to steal it and not give it back :P I will make tons of calls on it. at&t sent his family RAZRs in the meantime while the iPhone was being ordered. That's nice, considering they already have cell phones, but I suppose if you are a good customer, you receive free stuff. cool

But unless the prices of plans go down, it's always going to stay out of reach of a large segment of the public. I mean, we're talking about Blackberry-like monthly plans here - why would somebody who just needs a cell phone shell out that much money for a plan they don't really need?

I'm not so sure we won't see something in the future like an iPod/nano kind of set up, regardless of what Jobs claims at the moment.

I would buy the iPhone even though it's expensive and the plans are a lot. The plan on my cell now is the same as the iPhone's individual monthly plan, but it includes a lot more.

But you are just...you. I work in IT, I fix Mac products on a daily basis, and neither I nor anyone I know or work with is considering dropping $500 on a phone/crappy iPod. Sure everyone wants one, but you can get a better iPod, a really nice cell phone, and far cheaper monthly plans for less.

You work in it? What do you mean? Ok well, don't buy it then. Who says you have to? If you don't want anything you don't have to buy it, but tons of other people will, so it won't matter. I just know it's like any other novelty item, especially from Apple. They sell like no other.
