Its seems nice but its definitely not for me. I like to keep key devices like my mp3 player (Samsung Z5) separate from my cell phone. I barely use my cell cell phone anyways.

Here it is (pics included):

I think its gonna be quite popular. Most people buy anything that has "iPod" in it which is sad. :|

Thoughts/ opinions on the new device?

ABC News did a story on it tonight. Looks like it's going to be the Swiss Army Knife of portable tech. Will be interesting to see how if performs.

Cisco owns the name to iPhone since 2000:

LOL @ Apple.

I prefer Samsung phones thank you very much. Mine has gone through hell and back, left, right and center and it still works exactly like it does from day 1. It also didn't cost $500+ CDN, but rather a reasonable $99 CDN.

Water Drop, what do you prefer? :D

Dilbert, I got a Audiovox CDM8910 for -$0.01 ($49.99 - $50 MIR = profit :cool: ) with a two year contract about a year ago. It makes calls and receives calls. And it even takes pictures and all kinds of other crap. All I need it to do is make and receive calls, and it does that and much more. And it costed me negative money.

My favorite phone I have ever used is the Motorola E815, my mom has one, and it has a very nice GUI, takes great pictures, and was just $49.99 (no MIR on this one) with 2 year contract. Awesome phone.

I know, its awesome. Why pay for a fancy phone, when you just use it for calls?

For other stuff I have a Dell Axim X30, a Sony PSP, a still working 3rd generation iPod 15GB, and will probably get a flash based Zune or Sansa by the end of the year.

I don't know why but seeing the iPhone's price makes me want to buy a PS3. Even though I have an Xbox 360 and love it. And I want a Wii too. Maybe I just want everything, but do not care for the iPhone.

Sony or Apple? Sony is more evil by a long shot, but still the PS3 is much more worth the $500 to $600.

Apple isn't evil at all, Apple is just the ideas of one man's thoughts. Steve Jobs comes up with stuff, and Apple makes it. Apple doesn't make what the customers want, Apple makes what Steve Jobs wants. If you like Apple then you have similar tastes as Steve Jobs, and theres nothing wrong with that. If you dislike Apple, you probably don't like the same things Steve Jobs likes. Having said that I don't like what Steve Jobs likes, not my thing. The white minimum kitchen appliance look, of the iPod and the Mac, is not for me.

It's not really about disliking what Steve Jobs likes, but more because of the Mac fanboys and how overpriced their products are for parts that are normally affordable.

Old story, dude. ;) Apple's been always expensive. Do you think they will turn into a cheap bargin company in the future? ;) Unlikely.

I am telling you man, I wouldn't be the least surprized to see both AMD & Intel release Cell Phones.

The AMD Air Waves (Play On-Line Games with the Portable Athlo-Mobile:P)
The Intel Express (Bring the PC-Mobile-Phone anywhere you like w/ the Mobile 2 Duo:D)

Apple is trying to go after the bussiness market. Very few kids will pay $600 for one of these.

Yeah its for business, its a competitor for Microsoft's smart phones that run Windows Mobile. The Blackberrys are pretty popular with businesses. One of the blackberrys thats out now is much smaller than the iPhone and cheaper, and much more easier to use thanks to having real buttons. The iPhone won't do well in the business world, its just not made for buisness. Only gadget nerds, Mac Zealots, and rich kids will buy the iPhone which means Apple will be lucky and probably happy to gain about 5 % of the entire cellular phone industry, not bad, but this isn't gonna dominate it's industry like the the iPod. I also think Apple is aware of this, and they know its not gonna be a huge seller, and thats why they are going for the high price tag. They just want to build a device that makes them money even with low sales.

I predict it will sell a $1.5x10^6 buy the end of 2007.

>> Re: Apple Ready To Release "iPhone"
The probability that I will buy an "iPhone" is the inverse of that number you mentioned above, hence 2/3x10^-6. LOL ;)

Two months ago LG announced the KE850, a touch screen phone that looks a tad like the iPhone. Have a look:
