    More overpriced crap from Apple. Maybe next year they`ll come out with the iPlasma and people can pay 2x a much to have an apple logo branded on their plasma TV`s.

    I don`t see how it`s an "overpriced piece of crap"...

    It does everything better than the top of the line cell phone today and has much more...

    If you can`t splurge 500 bucks for something that does all of that than you need to fix your fiscal situation.

    I mean a blackberry runs like 400 doesn`t it?

    I`m actually on the same page as you. I`ve learned my lesson with these Apple products. They`re good and all but if I`m going to be out of date, I might as well wait and watch for the more ballin version.

    £500...?!!!!!
    i dont have that kind of money
    tho it did look pretty kwl! :)
    i got a touch screen LG tho and its problems are when u sit down and its in your pocket sometimes it just does really annoying things like goes on the internet(like waistes all ur credit)or rings someone or w.e

    so ive decided i dont like touch screens. plus if the screen brakes slightly, it can make it unusable.

    so yea. :)

    The interface looks completely gorgeous, but I am afraid it will be a case of form over functionality. All of the GUI stuff looks good, but none of that matters if it can`t hold a lot of music, or if calling is awkward, or if the thing gets scratched up in your pocket. Quite frankly I would rather keep phone/pda separate from mp3 player, just for the sake of carrying more music with me at one time.

    To be fair, these here phones are designed for businesspersons. Who can afford them. So going HOMGZZZ SO MANY MONEIIIZ I CNT AFORD IT is pretty stupid. We know you can`t afford it. You`re 14.

    And SallyFeels, do you really have that much of an inept social life, that you feel you have to "make fun" of people you don`t know?

    I found it funny how all those people were clustered around a phone in a little plastic case.
    As for the phone I agree with what LAPkira said. I would rather have a cheap phone and an Ipod nano so that I can go running with it as the nano doesn`t has flash memory so it won`t break when running.

    Seriously... guys. You can get it in an 8gig. How much music will you seriously be listening to on your phone for Christ`s sake? But if you seriously need to cram in a million songs into a cell phone (hope to never see your ass on the road), I`m sure the next generation iPhones will have far more space. And to make things even MORE convenient for you, why not just get the phone and buy your greedy self a bigger SD card?

    And the point of the iPhone wasn`t to combine music and phone calls. It was to "reinvent the cell phone". If you`ve actually seen demonstration I can`t imagine you don`t understand this already. The music should be the least of your attention.

    I`d love to get one, it looks freaking cool but i doubt I will really, I probably won`t be able to afford it anyway, but maybe when my mp3 player and phone both break...
    Wow, Sally, you sound like a wonderful person. Why do you have such a probelm with the people on this site? You really need to calm down and stop insulting people for no real reason, or you`re going to end up with no friends here. Fine, you can`t afford the iPhone, but that doesn`t mean nobody else is allowed to say they like it. Get over yourself.
    I now predict some childish bout of insults from you Sally, and to be honest I couldn`t care less. These people all seem nice enough and have every right to want an iPhone, so what you have to say isn`t really worth listening to if it`s only an insult.
    Anyway, peace out people, loving the iPhone, looks sooo cool

    How do you input text? I would imagine you would need pretty small fingers to use a touch screen keypad for e-mail and such.

    Plus, if it can surf the web, why wouldn`t you just use IP base telephone services like Skype and whatnot.

    The text input has some form of program that gives you options when you type something wrong. So if your finger slipped and you typed "googlr", or whatever, a box would appear under it with "Google" in it. Basically it notes what keys you press and what letters are nearby to those keys and then gives you other options that you might have meant.
    Also I would assume that Apple have found some way to disable Skype and the like, it`s a download though so I don`t know if you can do it to be honest...

    No Steve Jobs specifically said that they wouldn`t use a stylus, he said that fingers were the ultimate stylus and so that was all you would be using. I imagine some people might use one though

    i like visual voicemail and the picture viewing(although id never use it). most of the features i simply dont need in a phone though. plus, as it only goes up to 8gig, that simply isnt enough space for my record collection, so i`d end up using a seperate mp3 player anyway. i`ll just wait until other companies pick up the good ideas from it and make a better, more reliable phone

    I`m not all that interested in getting one of these though it`s pretty amazing to look at it. I sit in awe of the day when we will have literally credit card size mp3 players with 100gb of memory. Personally I think having this would get pretty embarassing at times. Somebody would see you using it and say "oh he has an ipod" and a minute later you hold it up to your hear and start screaming into it that you want a divorce... Then theyd prlly call the cops on you and send you to an insitution

    I dont think it`s a waste of money, its a phone, $289 (Razr)plus an ipod, $250 (regular ipod) plus a computer, so it`s actually cheaper than a phone + an ipod, even without the comp. part.

    That is an even price, squiggly. It`s called an exchange rate. (1 us dollar=1.6 pounds)

    And flarg, I`m pretty sure the razr is an mp3 player too. I don`t know for a fact, but most every cell phone over 150$ is.

    impressive, but anyone who is gonna pay that much for a cell phone is just asking for someone to hack it.

    actually, the security protocols on this probably arent that advanced, so when someone is is using this to check there e-mail or somethin at a place that offers wi-fi, it would actually be pretty easy for any run of the mill hacker to just dl some files onto this phone and mess it up.

    imo, anyone that pays that much for an over glorified phone deserves to get hacked

    There are already phones out that can do everything the iPhone can do, except for that multi-finger zoom thing and the rotational detector. Look at the Samsung i700 or the i730. The i730 has a QWERTY keyboard, the i700 has a virtual one like the iPhone. They both have unlimited storage space with SD cards, and they can play music and video with Windows Media Player. And yes, you can send/recieve emails using them and go online using Verizon`s Express Network.
