Great points, Bobtista. It really is going to be an amazing tool. I wish I could get one on release day but I have a strong feeling I should wait a bit before I cave.

Unless Cingular is going to offer me a discount since I've had the service for ages.

The software, as was stated, is going to bring down planets. You just have NO IDEA what developers can do with the software running on iPhone.

Add in that it's a Video Player and will give you the largest e-penis on the block, that's why people are willing to pay $500+ for it.
I'd be kinda ashamed to own one

Gotta say, that question is retarded. You're saying that Computers can advance, and it's okay to buy a new Video Card every year, but Phones can't advance?

Then again, I guess some of us actually use our hardware for work and not just play.

ae - Yeah I wonder what the stipulations would be. If that's true, I'm getting one release date because it'll balance out. Sick.

sorry, but $600 for a phone and an 8gb ipod on the same battery is not worth it.

Except the battery would be a bit larger (it's not a tiny little Nano, you know) and the battery life would thus increase a bit.

Why pay the 900 bucks for a quad core that just produces more heat? You're looking at it kind of one sided. You pay that much for a quad core because it has increased speeds and cores that aren't found on othe processors. You're paying for a top of the line processor. It's a $600 phone that is "next-gen." It has features not seen in other phones. It's got an incredible interface and will be so easy to use and it's touch screen. It's going to be amazing!!

If people are willing to pay for it, then they can make full use of its features. I believe the features will justify the cost. Watch the commercials for just the tip of the iceberg

Yes, it will attract dirt and scratches, which is why you need to take care of it just like you would any other expensive piece of equipment. Buy a cover and screen protector. I usually buy a new cell phone either way every year or year and a half and end up spending about 200 and this is for a basic phone with a decent camera and expandable memory. This phone is going to rock so much that it's worth three times as much as my phone. I am actually thinking about switching services just so I can get this. But keep in mind, the iPhone will be unlocked to other companies eventually, you just have to wait. There is also going to be a lesser priced model.
What is ahead of its time?? Please tell me because there are multiple options that are priced at less than 1/3 the Iphone's price....Its a Joke, and worthless for the price.

or why not buy a HP smart phone for $500, with everything a Iphone can do, plus play roms, and other older videos games, rip mp3s to your phone with out 3 party software, can be overclocked as well, and the list can go on.

Just better to let people say what they want about it.

I mean, people are calling it a joke when they've never even used it before. And most of those people have never even had a reason to use a PDA.

Lame.

Tell me one phone that does what you've seen all that the iPhone has shown you so far.

You have to wait. More and more information will come out as it gets closer to launch date. I am not at liberty to discuss it.

Tell me why people would pay $300 for the Chocolate flip phone when all it really is just the same kind of phone as every other one just with a sleek design and some extra MP3 controls.

This phone is different. It's advanced. It's got features that you won't see in other phones for months and months after its release because the other companies are going to have to try and play catch up with Apple's innovation.
