I saw something on the news about them last night... It takes like 5 steps to get to your address book and make a call... I think it's less phone and more iPod... It does feature a multi-touch screen which is TOTALLY BADASS... There is no way I could justify spending $5-600 on it though... especially considering you need to sign up with a 2yr contact with ATT...

I'm the type that waits to see if they work right. I'll let the other fools spend the big money while I wait for the price to come down.

the other downsides are:

The minimum AT&T package you can get for that think is $69.99/month

and

It doesn't compress webpages like blackberries and other handheld devices do, so for instance, they tested it and it took 2 MINUTES for yahoo's homepage to load. The only way to make it quicker is to go to a Hotspot to use it, but then you've gotta subscribe to a regular ISP for it as well, to the tune of an add'l $40+ per month.

No thanks!

Gee, tell us how ya REALLY feel about it...

I think it looks pretty cool, actually, but I won't get one. Just don't NEED it. I've got a great phone, I've got an MP3 player, and I despise iTunes anyway.

I saw lines of people camped outside the AT&T store here waiting to get one. I personally think it's retarded, and I will wait to see if they live up to the hype and for the price to drop.

This is not a phone. It's media device that happens to make phone calls.

I'm anti-hype, if everyone says something is awesome I tend to think the opposite, I don't own any apple products and don't plan to.

Got this list of iphone faults from another forum;

Quote:
1. Bluetooth is ONLY good for connecting a headset. That's it.
2. There is no file browser on the device at all. Data must be organized (if at all) in the appropriate application.
3. The camera is a simple application that has ONE button: the shutter. Pictures come out okay on the device, but nothing too fancy on a monitor, especially if it was an attempt at a macro shot.
4. SIM card is damn near impossible to open, if at all. I didn't look into it extensively.
5. Web browser is slow, even over WLAN. Even the simple OneList web app that was created takes around 20 seconds to load over WLAN. You can not highlight, cut, copy, or paste and text from a website, and you can not save any images you find from a website either. The only nice thing about it is the tabbed browsing, which crashed on me when I went to Engadget and YouTube on two tabs. This is the only application that allows you to use the keyboard in landscape mode.
6. The keyboard sucks. It gets slightly better after the iPhone "learns" you, as the employees said, but even then, it's not a device you can use with one hand comfortably, much less without looking.
7. You can only send one picture at a time in an email.
8. No custom ringtones (yet, as we were being told) and the alert tones can not be changed whatsoever.
9. The default ringtones are incredibly lame.
10. The only form of customization outside of a lame default ringtone is the wallpaper, which you'll only see when you need to unlock the device or when you get a phone call.
11. "Picture pinching" or using two fingers to zoom on any content is certainly fun to play with, but not practical whatsoever. This operation depends solely on using the device with two hands.
12. No document editor or native viewer. You can not store documents on the device to be viewed, they can only be viewed as attachments when they're sent to your in an email.
13. Visual voicemail is laggy and reacts about the same way as pushing the fast forward and rewind buttons on traditional voicemail systems. The only advantage is for those that get that many voicemail messages a day that they need to sort them according to priority.
14. NO games. None.
15. No voice dialing.
16. No speed dialing (which can be made up by the "quick list", but getting to that quick list isn't as fast as holding a single key on a real keypad).
17. No video.
18. No MMS.
19. It's still <4GB for $500 and <8GB for $600
20. It only takes around 2 hours to explore every menu without any options for expandability except to scrounge around for new web apps that will load slowly and nowhere near as smoothly as the native apps.

*sigh*

I'm ashamed to admit....

I know someone who bought one. A friend of ours confessed Friday that he got it. I think he just ordered it online (didn't stand in line for 27 hours or anything)... but alas, he bought one nonetheless.
