Replying to: Uh - this is cheaper than the iPhone. . .by far by japhy
The iPhone is $500 & $600 WITH contract - this is just shy of $800 without - that's a huge difference. And that's before any charges & plan requirements Cingular will have. People who want to buy this without a contract will end up paying $900 - $1000 easily.
Cingular is not going to sell this phone without a contract, period.
The only way a person can get this phone without a contract is if they pay the $600, then pay the ETF to break the contract. That's $775, the same as this Prada phone.
Since that pretty much levels the field as far as cost goes, next thing to compare is feature set. iPhone is the clear winner in this regard, you just can't say that a device with 8 gigs of storage already included isn't better than a device that relies on a microSD card to give it maybe 2 gigs max -- a card, I might add, that you will need to shell out even more money for.
