Won't get it...since have to wait for so long for asia mkt.
Besides, 1st generation of iphones from apple probably will have more bugs.
Let those tech geekies be the guinea pigs first and you will see threads like this in forums...
"My iphone sucks".
MAC OSX in iphone???
Incredible....but really the full version of Mac OS X????
The only down side is the battery.
Not that worth to get this lemon, IMO.
Unless you are fond of the logo.
i would want one for the glam factor but it would be too pricey? and well too small gb wise.
and i think it's not even 3G, but 2.5G.
I know all the widget(mini application) in the OSX will be working in iPhone
Have a look..

Anything can happen from now till 2008. This is a very interesting product and it would be interesting to see what will happen to it...from a business point of view...and not from the die hard fanatic defender of apple. hehe and by the way...I still have this nagging feeling the Cisco tango with Apple...I suspect is just a "britney spears" marketing saga to get marketing mileage and apple actually have no intention to use "iPhone" by July 2007. This could be a smoke screen and in the end it might be that they will name it the way they name the tv cast unit launch at the same time as the phone which everyone thought it would be called "iTV" but in the end it is called Apple TV. ( with the apple being the symbolic apple outline. I am wondering if they might just be calling the new phone "Apple Phone". And the mobile phone industry is a new market , they are tryign to make noise...any kind of noise to get more publicity and marketing buzz. This marekt is not about die hard fans..they are wanting to get beyond them and convert other mobile user to make the switch. 11 plus million ipod owner might seem alot but the mobile phone industry is presently a billion over user market. That is what I read in a business report recently. Imagine a stake in that kind of market size...You can't pay the game to market your product like the way you do the ipod. It has to be something totally difference or in line with what other mobile phones are doing. .With such a success if they can do it, Apple can give up their computer market or really push that to the back end of their company's interest? I hate for that to happen but there are already signs of that being so as in recent years, they have not been do much to push their foot hold in that old market of computers with really outstanding pioneering stuff like before except for the usual new CPU, some improvement in some existing hardwares. You can't fault them if they do too...business model will change and sometime they too have to move on...whether it will make their die hard fanatic supportor happy or angry. I like Apple but it is just like any other companies ....it is about making money, moving into direction where the money is and do whatever it takes to get to it. Their marketing which I have always admire is one that can make you think they are doing it "just for you the underdogs against PCs" but it is really pure business. So long as it works to make money for them they will keep to that direction but as soon as that changes, they will do what it must and change direction even if that is not what their loyal consumers wants it to.
Thus I will not be surprise there will be a name change by the time Jul'07 comes. I am willing to stick my neck out to say it will not be called an iPhone and it is part of their plan all along and if not well, it will still be a tough battle for them as delivery is coming in late and not soon enough to fight off competition. As they say in the IT industry, 1 year is like a few years in technological times frame. This will be a very interesting story to follow...to whatever final conclusion it might lead to....heh. Anyone else with another perspective?

With 200 over patents on iPhone, I serious doubt any handphone producers will be able to match the features on this phone without infridging IP rights of Apple. This is going to be a serious contender in this competitive handphone market.
I have never wanted a product so badly after watching the Macworld keynote. I would get my hands on one of those iPhone once it launch in June.
Not for me. I am looking for a phone, not a mini computer.
lolz i like to carry alot alot of gagets... iphone or uphone doesn't appeal to me... moreover i think sure got lotsa bugs for gen1...
Dude! You've been caught up by the infamous Reality Distortion Field!!!
It seems like there's a lot of hype for nothing really new. Yes its got OSX on it and looks like a PDA that has lost its stylus, plus its bulky.... but nothing really new. Its just something to take a bite off the mobile market. Yups its got lots of patents but does not mean it will really sell....
