Apple has released the iPhone. $499 - $599, W-T-F!? Costs as much as an Xbox 360. :P

Ok, dude. ;)

About an Xbox 360 with bundle for the lower price margin of $499 or about a PS3 by itself for the upper price margin of $599.

i guess the price makes up for it in the end. it is an ipod as well. and the features it has are pretty amazing.

like this:

Built-in Advanced Sensors
iPhone’s accelerometer detects when you rotate the device from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes the contents of the display, so you immediately see the entire width of a web page or a photo in its proper landscape aspect ratio.

The proximity sensor detects when you lift iPhone to your ear and immediately turns off the display to save power and prevent inadvertent touches until iPhone is moved away.

An ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the display’s brightness to the appropriate level for the current ambient light, thereby enhancing the user experience and saving power at the same time.

$599 for 8GB model with a 2 year Cingular contract, I call rip-off. This phone makes the PS3 seems like a really really good deal.

Hell pick yourself up a Motorola Q for $99 w/2 year (verizon) and a iPod/Zune/Sansa 8GB ($249). Or at least thats what I would do if I was looking for a buisness phone and a portable media player. But I always get the "Free with 2 year contract" phones, they work great, and make calls, and thats all I need a phone to do. I have an Audiovox one that I got for free with 2 year contract, can't beat free man.

The look of it is nice though, very sleek, and very un-Apple (which is a good thing in my opinion). Looks more like something Motorola might make. The price is gonna kill it and the battery life, 5 hours talk time, is not so good.

Btw, Cisco owns the trademark for the iPhone. Apple will probally have to pay Cisco off to use the name. If I were Cisco I would license the name iPhone to Apple for lots of money and if they didn't pay I would sue them. Cisco Systems vs Apple: Round 1...

Bah, another expensive Apple product. I admit it looks very nice, but I've only known one person to spend even close $300 CDN for a bloody phone.

Battery life sucks too. You might as well get an iPod for less and with way more storage. Then get something nice and solid for cheap for a phone from another company.

I played with a Motorola Q at a Verizon booth in the mall, and the device is actually a fully capable Pocket PC that also is a phone. I own a Dell Axim X30 with Windows Mobile 2003SE, so the interface was very familiar. Love my Pocket PC, it can play SNES games, Genesis games, it can surf the web, it can listen to music, play video, in any format with TCPMP (a great freeware app for Pocket PC), and it can open word docs, excel docs, it does everything.

Wait, if the iPhone runs OS X does that mean you can install OS X applications on it and stuff?

Probably, but you probably can't do as much with only 4Gb or 8Gb on top of poor battery life. There's also a good chance I'm wrong. :P

Well its probably pretty hard to use some applications without a mouse or keyboard.

Btw, Apple, I can use my Pocket PC without a Stylus too. The Stylus just helps keep the fingerprints off.

Regardless of the Stylus, Apple'ss**t attracts fingerprints like no other not to mention scratches and dirt... The freakin' felt case that comes with iPods CAUSES the thing to be scratched with thousands of minute scratches and it p**sed me way off.

Why did they have to get the f**king acrylic finish!?!? Sansa's are so nice in that regard... hard to scratch...

I use to keep my 3rd gen iPod 15GB in a rubbery case, but I don't anymore because it got more scratched up from putting on the case and removing it every couple days to plug it in to firewire or A/C power, then it does without the case. So I just leave the case off. Cases are lame anyway. I hate those people with 5 different cases for their iPods to match all there clothes.

Probably a cut-down version of OS X. Just like Pocket PCs run a cut down (very) version of Windows called Windows Mobile 5.0. I think a full OS X install will take 2 GB already.

I will prefer any of the Pocket PC / Phone devices over the pricey iPhone. Probably cost 1/2 as much and can do 90% of the functions. ;)

The worst, no offense, are the women. My friend has like eight to match and four of them are high-quality (and expensive!) leather just for her leather + silk match. Makes me wonder what would happen when her iPod Mini dies. :D

Not just women, but also kids. This past holiday, my friend's little daughter had to have her dad buying her an iPod Nano. Talk about peer pressure, man...

Not to mention about god-damn show-offs in my work, listening to iPod while work -- can't hear shit yelling at them at 150 decibels (Jet engine noise level). ;)
