To be completely honest that guy sounds like a complete loser. Hes being a overly picky critic. I wanna see him come up with a better phone then the iPhone himself.

With all seriousness read what he put and post what you think.

EDIT: Evem the posters on the site agree the writer of the article is being completely unreasonable.

This "top 10" read like it was written by a 17year old. Piss poor to say the least. I'm very disappointed at ET.

The "i hate Exchange cos's it's evil Microsoft" stuff made me laugh. That's my number #1 reason to buy one. In fact the reviewer probably already had one, and paid a lot to it already, and it's like angry it's not worth to buy ANOTHER one. If you already have an Iphone, so what if you're not willing to buy ANOTHER one? Frankly, who cares?

He never once think about those that haven't got one yet: hey, if you paid $500 or more, not my problem. I'd happily pay 199 for it though, especially now with GSM, thinner and CHEAPER.

I'm sure lots of blackberry owners are willing to jump ship. Good for Apple.

Oh, well, if some random poster says so...

It's an editorial. It's his opinion, so he's got the right to be overly picky. Many times throughout the article he reiterates that it is his personal take on the matter, so there is no reason for you or the other guy to complain.

And "I wanna see him come up with a better phone then the iPhone himself" (sic)? That's just weak.

Will be my next phone. Is it fat? Yes. The keyboard has it's cons and making the phone fat is the main one. Don't like the keyboard or want a thinner touch screen only version?

http://www.htc.com/www/product.aspx?id=46278

I will be emailing T-Mobile when I get home from work and I will ask about the Touch Pro. Supposedly T-Mobile-UK is getting it so I hope that means it's coming to T-Mobile-US.

EDIT:
HOLY CRAP! I might get the Dream. I think Google may have Apple beat in the features department. Here's more info.

Can't wait for some real specs on Android phones.

If there's no real info by July 11 and I can import the 3G iPhone without donating my heart, lungs or brain, I'll probably end up with the iPhone.

Come on Google! Make some real hype!

Yes hes allowed to make his own opinon but he has so very lousy reasons for it and considering how popular the 3G iPhone is going to be, he has to expect some backlash.
And I quoted a poster because it proves my point, that his reasons are childish and he seems like hes pissed that he just bought the iPhone 1st gen and now they are coming out with a 3G model.

Nice feature but doesn't look very practical. Just my opinion.

Popularity means nothing! The masses are like sheep. Just because you like the phone doesn't mean his reasons are lousy. The reasons he gives are more substantiated than yours thus far, anyway.

You also have a loose definition of proof it someone posting in agreement with you constitutes proof.

I realize that you like to hate apple beyond reason. But just because you found somebody to agree with YOU doesn't mean that his OPINION should be taken seriously.
