Apple Delivers iPhone
Where are all the die hard Sprint/Nextel and T-Mobile fans?
Verizon wants to dictate too much of what phones can and can't do, along with plans and such, to be co-operative with Apple.
Probably best to wait
I am hoping that the phone lives up to all of it's potential, and if Apple has any QC over the product that will be a huge plus. As with all new products, there is a good chance for the first release to be less than stellar. This is the reason that I am going to hang on until the spring of '08 when I can renew and see what this thing really has to offer.
Is this phone GSM only?
It is only GSM though.
In other countries, other GSM ca...

Loyal 2 Apple + Anti Cingular = Aw crap...
I am a VZW employee. I love my job and the company I work for. I started entry level and have worked my ass off and been rewarded for it. This is my career now, and I am now in a relatively high position with no intention of leaving or "cheating".
I am also a self admitted super-loyal Mac zealot. We have 4 ipods, a Quicksilver G4, a Macbook (2nd on the way), and will soon have a Mac Mini and iTV in the entertainment center. I may even have some windows bashing parody songs still saved somewhere.
I follow the rumors like any other fanboy, but I had convinced myself it wouldn't happen. Mostly because I knew there was no way the partnership would be with Verizon. I wanted to sit down and watch another keynote unfold...
Original Promises of the iPhone
Buzz out Loud, from Cnet.com
also to dl.tv
Both of these podcasts have said this phone will
ultimately be out on all carriers.
I think for the first year though, its a Cingular exclusive.
I wouldnt hold my breath to see this on Verizon's network in the first year or even the second year.
Besides, Verizon would screw up this phone just like they do most of their other phones that they alter the software on anyway.
Verizon gets "new technology"
when its already 2 or 3 years old.
At 500 for 4gb and 600 for 8gb, its going to be a little while until this phone sets the world on fire. Only the hardcore early adopters will get this phone at those prices. Or unless of course your rich, and dont care.
ya the other companies are probably banging their heads right now until they dont feel the pain t...

nikg said: Steve Jobs wants to take 1% of the US market share. This equates to 10 million handsets.
10 million Handsets? Cingular only has about 60 million customers, do they really think 1/6 of Cingular's customer...
...but trying to reach this goal by only offering your product on one carrier is ignorant.
It's not one product. iPhone is a line of products, just like iPod. Cingular will offer multiple iPhone models over...
Obviously it will be offered unlocked?
I have no problem going with Cingular but when I travel overseas, I like to slap in a local SIM card.
Will there be a 3g version in the future?
3G would be a natural feature to add eventually, although that might not be the next product in the sequence. The next one might focus on being smaller o...
any possibility of iphone nano?
How future products will be different remains to be seen. They could add 3G or a hard drive, or make it cheaper and/or smaller.
