I want an iPhone

If it ends up working the way it currently is shown, OMG the interface is absolutely amazing. All it needs is a little more storage for music/videos

I'm not sure how this thing is going to work out seeing as how Apple is being sued by Cisco over the name "iPhone."

That has nothing to do with how well it will sell.

unless they purchase the name it will be just like the 'apple TV' iTV was already trademarked so they substituted their brand logo for the 'i'

the apple 'i' has become so synonymous with its brand image that it wouldnt matter either way.

$499 and should be available around June. I do like the fact that it's not being marketed as a PDA so I'm guessing you won't need to get a data plan.

I like how everyone got upset with sony for making a $600 game console/blue ray dvd player with one of the most advanced processors in the world, but apple makes a $600 cell phone and people line up like crazy to suck them off.

That being said the phone looks freaking sweet.

People got mad because Nintendo out maneuvered Sony by offering a cheap new gaming console with an available HD player at an extra expense. If the Wii was only availble with the HD player at a comparable price then there wouldn't have been a big fuss. Apple on the other hand is offering a complete package that people want. Big difference.

yeah, plus you can carry it with you. Personally I use my phone/iPod a hell of a lot more than any console I've ever owned.

I just love the interface, it just seems like its going to do for cell phones what the iPod did for mp3 players. They are make a device that is so intuitive to use, yet packs features and power that few have brought to the market.

I rarely get excited over a new consumer electronic product, but this thing is going to be revolutionary IMO.

who knows what goes on behind closed doors, but i have a feeling that cisco was playing holdout to see how great the instant hype would be. Both sides have said they had been working on a deal to buy/use the name literally right up until the release.

iphone went nuts and now cisco prob wants a bigger chunk of the pie.

its just like the 'apple tv' thing i mentioned above. if they really dont want to pay to buy the trademark all they need to do is put the apple logo in place of the 'i'... it wouldnt make a difference.

Right there with ya. I've been non-plussed by the other smart phones on the market, the pda-phones, etc.

I saw this thing and my jaw hit the floor. And my birthday's in June, so it'll make the perfect birthday present for myself when it launches in June

Two points:

A) I use my phone a HELLUVA lot more than I play games.

B) I don't care about BluRay. At all. I'm not interested in gambling on the next DVD format. Give me a 20gb version, without BluRay (use regular DVD's for the games), and sell it for $300 and I'll go buy one right now.
