I WANT ONE. IT WOULD PLEASE ME IMMENSELY TO EVEN TOUCH ONE.

No but I want one. I can't wait until they are here (maybe Monday?) so I can at least gaze upon one.

Aren't they like 200 something?

Wrong and wrong. They came out yesterday, and are around $600 not including the immediate 60 base monthly cost just for data, SMS, and voicemail. (That's right, it doesn't actually including calling smile)

Even when it does come out in Europe, I think I'm going to wait around 6-9 months before I get one, Apple will release a 2nd generation version by then with more sexy features.

At the moment the current model suffers from a few 'held back' options, including not being able to choose your own ring tone, no IM features and no voice dialling. Apple will obviously include these and other add-ons in the next gen.

I believe the one we will get in Europe will be the 2nd generation.

Guilty as charged biggrin

But seriously, I'd never blow $600 on a first generation cell phone/iPod/"revolutionary internet device", especially when it only uses one of the worst networks in the country. Here's to the second generation!

If you think at&t/cingular is one of the worst networks in the U.S., you must either be a sucker for Verizon and their ghetto-red-ified-OS or sorely misinformed, my friend. smile

I'm upset that such a sexy device that tried to cover all bases didn't even get 'media messaging' or 'picture messaging' into the equation. Guess people can't send a pic to a friend saying "check out a pic I just took on my new iPhone!".

Oh, well. When I'm more serious into filmmaking as a profession, I might get one just for the internet, so I can keep my contacts and bookmarks in order. And.....you know....check up here every couple hours. smile

Er, different networks are different all over the place. In my city, if you use anything other than Sprint or Verizon, your service is going to be meh. Cingular is much less reliable here. It really varies from area to area. Some are travel friendly, but specific areas might be friendly with only a couple of services.

Wait, is A Pickle raiding a topic? I am shocked.

The iPhone looks so great, but lacks some really pivotal features... Come on, setting an iTunes song as ringtone would be so easy. I know they are trying to make an intuitive interface, but they should consider some of the features on higher end phones. I'll wait for 2nd gen when I'm heading off to college with the inevitable Macbook Pro. smile

iPhone looks sweet. If it was 400 dollars less I might get one. smile. I have the money but I am not willing to spend $600 (plus $60+ monthly) on a phone. No matter how many features.

Does anyone know why the iPhone use AT&T?

AT&T doesn't exist here in Denmark, so will the iPhone even work here?

$60 monthly is on top of a minimum of $19 for voice calls or $10 on family plans.

I'm waiting for Microsoft to make something to compete. They are the ones who employ all the genius inventors. I heard they have something in works already. AND I hope it comes to Sprint.


Though, my friend did get one for his birthday today, so I'll play around with his till then.

I don't know if that's Serpent being angry with me or not...

...but whatever. I agree, largely, with Serpent's assessment of the iPhone. Actually, until I learned of some it's features -- I really felt like a moron for buying my phone after Basic Training. I still do, in some cases... but my "frustrations" with my phone have more to do with the poor status of cellular carriers in America than the phone itself.

For example, I'm paying $15 a month for the Sprint data service, which allows me to use the bandwidth normally reserved for normal cellphone talking for internet. Now, via a USB cable and the proper software on my PC and on my phone, I should be able to use my phone as a dial-up modem for my PC when I have no access to wired or wifi high-speed internet. I have all of that, but I'm only paying $15 a month... so technically using my phone as a modem is not on my contract. I'd need to pay $40 a month to do that, despite the fact that I have the hardware and software to accomplish this task.

I hate the bullshit that American cellular companies dream up. Kind of like that $30 "activation fee" for the iPhone. Cellphone companies are about the worst thing that happened to cellphones.

I feel that the same thing adversely affects the iPhone, though... I don't know why Apple chose not to support 3G networks and chose EDGE over EV-DO high-speed networks. I also kinda wish that the iPhone had user-upgradeable memory, though... it's not that bad, since 8 GB is still more memory than just about any other phone. The biggest complaint I have, though, is the lack of an iPhone SDK, and therefore, there's a lack of third-party iPhone applications. I understand that copy-and-pasting text is difficult on the iPhone.

Being unable to set an iTunes song as a ringtone is irritating, but the situation is no better on Windows Mobile. Which makes me mad, because I utterly HATE the "ringtone industry." There are some things that really should be free, and stupid midi ringtones are one of those things. Being able to set your own music as a ringtone would break that industry, legally, and wonderfully. biggrin

Well unfortunately, I just broke my outdated Mini iPod and had been planning to wait until it broke to buy a new ipod... but now I think I'll just wait until the iPhone is a heckuva lot cheaper and a whole lot better for my next apple purchase [hopefully my current phone will last awhile]...

Knowing Apple, you're in for quite a wait......you know........until it's outdated by iPhone 2.0. Which could be, again, knowing Apple, up to 10 whole months. smile

As far as the Iphone goes, if I ever get one, I am going to wait until they offer an educational discount. That way i'll at least save $50 on the purchase.

My dad bought one (AFTER I told him not to!), and now he's having trouble activating it. Can't recieve calls, or some jazz. I guess it's one of those "hate to say I told you so" moments.

Anyway, I got to play with it today and holy crap it's SOOOO cool. But seriously... There's too many kinks right now, and the next version will be way better and probably if not cheaper, it'll at least have more space on the drive.

I plan on getting an iPhone in a few generations, at current although very cool the browser doesn't support flash and the technology isn't as modern-tech as I would like to have believed.

When it is, I shall definitely buy one.

Ugh. I hated the PSP's "keyboard" -- the DS kicked the PSP's arse as far as internet surfability. My Sprint PPC 6700 does well online, but Pocket IE 4.00 is the worst browser ever. If Microsoft were to add support for tabbed browsing, full javascript support, and their Deepfish browser technology -- they'd have one heck of a mobile browser on their hands.

*sigh*

Unfortunately, Pocket IE is still limited to one window, and hates javascript that involves any video player (so YouTube and similar playback applets won't work). Oh well. unsure

I got an interesting e-mail today. Apparently, if I assist in recruiting five people for the Wyoming Air National Guard, I get a free Garmin GPS unit and an iPhone.

So.... who wants to join the Wyoming Air Guard? Eh? Any takers? Eh?

Actually, I think I heard the phone will support flash and IM soon. Also, Steven didn't support 3G into the iphone because he stated that it made the phone to big and drained the battery a lot. I guess it was either looks or 3G; you know how Steve is with "looks". I wonder though; what if verizon didn't reject apple's iphone offer...AT&T is getting heck of a lot of money now.

I really don't think so. The iPhone is cool -- but as of yet, it's only going to hook a market of people who a.) are very interested in carrying only one pocket device, b.) don't have business obligations that would require them to have Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint/Outlook capabilties on the go, and c.) are willing to spend that much on a phone.

The iPhone is good, make no mistake -- but it cannot, as of yet, open Word, Excel, or Powerpoint documents, nor can it do flash in the browser or much online chatting. That last one is borderline ridiculous -- Windows Mobile has Skype, AIM, MSN, Yahoo -- and even multi-protocol messengers analogous to Trillian on the PC.

Just personally, I would prefer an interface that's friendly to all things -- be they fingers, stylii, or buttons built right on to the device. I much prefer my Sprint PPC 6700's real keyboard to any onscreen keyboard, and while I (admittedly) haven't used the iPhone's keyboard -- based on videos that I HAVE seen of it -- it's not really a competitor to real, tactile keyboards.

Word and Excel Confirmed

What you said is factually incorrect if the document is received via email. Instead of plugging the phone into your computer, just email yourself the file. I don't know if you can do it any other way, but you can view Word and Excel files. I suppose PPT could be possibly useful on the go, but I don't see why you ever would need it. Maybe practicing for a presentation? It's not the perfect business phone like Blackberries and whatnot, but if you are going to point something like that out at least do a quick Google. I knew it was a feature because I watched the demo videos Apple provided.

Excuse me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't adding Flash and AIM/iChat/Whatever just be a software update? It's not as if they'd have to fundamentally change the way the phone is designed to include those things. I'm sure they could just offer a software update that adds those features. Anyway, that seems to make sense... There's still room on the main iPhone menu for 4 more icons.

Not saying that it's not a software update, but knowing Apple you'll likely have to get tje iPhone 2.0 to get "exclusive" things like flash/aim/mms.

It can be a software update. But, it would have to be a major software update. During development of the iPhone framework (or whatever they call it), the devs did not add certain functionality that would allow stuff like Flash to run. AFAIK, it's not as simple as just installing a plugin like you can do on your PC. Portions of the framework need to be modified.

Alrighty, that's good to hear. Now let's see some third-party development and a good ecosystem to form -- and I might consider buying one when my phone plan cycles. Maybe even if I have to use Safari to sync it on my PC.
