oh my goodness,
what a beautiful phone...
time to start saving ($499) and getting ready to switch phone companies (cingular)
it's cool but i'm skeptical it's $500 cool. that's a lot of money for something i use for twenty minutes a week.
I guess that usage would depend on whether you used it as an iPod (nano) replacement. I feel like I use my sidekick all the time, just to read e-mail or the internet while I'm on the bus or waiting around. In reality, you're right. It's probably something like a couple hours/week.

I'm more skeptical of the service charges than the handset cost. $500 is pricey, but it doesn't seem insanely more expensive than some of the other smartphones.
I, for one, am glad I'm not faced with the decision to rush to apple.com to place my order NOW. I find myself thanking the FCC for causing Jobs' to pre-announce this product. Now I have until June to determind if I really *need* an iPhone -- for the initial luster to come back to earth let's say...

I'm still holding out for that real new iPod video to come out. And does MultiTouch sound like technology for a new 12" Mac Book Pro (tablet form factor, but done well) to anyone else?

**eagerly awaiting the NEXT announcement from Apple**
I don't know if anyone really needs the iPhone, but it really looks like the future and I can't wait to have a look at a real one. It also reminds me of what the Newton could have been; so that's exciting, too.
Wow... you just sent me back in time. Not many remember the Newton. I suppose you remember the "QuickTake" too? :)
no quicktake for me, but I still have the last version of the newton gathering dust. every once in a while i break it out for old time's sake.
I'm excited for the MultiTouch aspect. I hope there is some sort of tactile feedback when pressing "buttons". I've never preferred that silent mashing of finger on plastic screen to the feel of a real button.
definitely. that looks like the niftiest part. they describing it as working like magic; so maybe anything is possible. that said, I can't really fathom how tactile feedback would work on a touchscreen. Maybe audio cues could fool you into believing.


There's some technology out there. Just a click, or tiny vibration is the general idea:

Oh, geekies unite! (Steve has been drooling over it since Cisco announced it at their annual geekie meeting last week - apparently they're suing since they own the name 'iphone' or something like that).

LOL! Cingular rocks - then we can talk for free minutes, mobile to mobile. (Which will save us about 2 minutes a year!!!)
but those minutes were pure quality.
