Droid, Blackberry, Palm Pre Plus... all phones just as capable as the iPhone. Oh no... they don't have as many fart apps tho *rolls eyes*
Until Apple says "We have a CDMA iPhone" where we stand is simply nowhere.
Besides... I can only imagine Apple's over-controlling attitude plus Verizons over-controlling attitude. Not a good combo if you ask me.
The real apple enthusiasts are into Apple for it's own cult of manufacturing, or the fact that it's the easiest and (in my opinion) most aesthetically seamless phone available.
I *do* agree that it's a hyped piece of machinery, and I say this working for AT&T and having to deal with every other person who calls in to order a phone asking for it.... and not know WHY they want it.
"Because it has 3g.."
Awesome, so do most of our gophones..
"Because it's a touchscreen.."
I'm going to cry.
In what I've observed who are truly into being innvoative with their software will be into Android...
