Finally, someone who gets it! People come into my store day after day and ask "Is this better than the iPhone?" and I have to keep telling them that this is on a whole DIFFERENT level. For a business person, this phone has a TON more functionality (see above), for someone interested in music and music related features... the iPhone is a better option (between these two).

On a side note, Apple actually came to Sprint first about the iPhone, because of the fact that we have the most developed music download system. We didn't accept their offer because Apple wanted ~40% of ALL plan revenue PLUS the phone price. A Sprint iPhone will probably never happen because of the demands Apple packages with the right to carry the iPhone.

Anyways, like I said, let's not be silly and try to compare apples to oranges here. The iPhone is an iPod with a 2g phone built in, and the Touch is a phone/PDA with high-speed data.

I, personally, like the Touch better because it does have the Sprint Music option, and I can plug it into my laptop with the INCLUDED data cable and get free EV-DO (high speed) internet anywhere I have signal, with NO extra option on my bill other than the $25 Vision Ultimate Pack. The iPhone can't do that.
