After reading countless posts I had just this to say. SO many nay sayers but the bottom line is this, Apple makes great products, this phone is going to be hottest seller of the year, the price is what the Razor launched with. Let's be realistic, this is the phone to have. Will it have initial bugs, YEs is this a piece of junk NO. Will it be UMTS no.. is this a concern.. not really , did you know you can still watch full quality videos over EDGE.. Theres alot of people it seems wishing this phone bad luck, and hoping it fails. I think that this phone is so revolutionary. Cell phones are often complex .. this will be simple, Will it be Unlockable, no, will it be able to be used on other carriers, ofcourse not.

Even if you don't plan on purchasing an iPhone, it's nice to know that the iPhone is probably going to act like a shot in the arm for the mobile manufacturing industry. I'm quite certain that competitors are going to want to "respond" to the iPhone with their own newer, more innovative products.
I agree, inovation needs to happen. Cell phones for the last few years have been dull. I am one that loves the idea of YouTube wherever I am. It is one of the best websites, and also one of the most enjoyable. I'll settle for YouTube anywhere, and Im just excited about the innovations in the phone. Since it is a higher price it makes me happy to know it will be packed with all kinds of goodies. The other phone makers will have to step their game up, or they will get owned.
great post and i agree with you all the way, i know 3G is an upset but Job's is telling nytimes that it will be a simple firmware upgrade when the coverage becomes practical, so thats good news...other than that EDGE is NOT slow...i have slingbox and watch movies rarely chopped or cut while in a car, its great. The phone is going to be amazing and apple is a great company to produce phones, i also am pist with all the haters on the iphone, you people must truely have no good ideas, this is the revolutionary to the phone industry it will be a huge challenge for other phone industries
Thank you. That is what I have been trying to tell poeple! and I wouldn't doubt if the 2nd or 3rd generations of the iPhone will be 3G. also the price will go down. the RAZR launched at about $500 and now it sits at $30 w/ contract. so I doubt the price will hinder sales much if at all. all the publicity and hype about it I believe will compensate for the price being up there.
