So I followed Endgadet's live coverage of Steve Jobs' keynote. I'm sure there will be actual articles put up very soon, but here's a link to the keynote to get a good idea of what's going on.

I'm excited about it. I'll see if I can wrestle up the $600 for 8 gig model.

I don't pay a whole lot of attention to cell tech, so I don't really know anything about the networks. I'm betting it's not very hard to get this phone to work with any carrier (not from the end users point of view, but the manufacturers). Just put a little different chip in it. I for one don't care, because I'm a Cingular customer, and I'll never pay for mobile broadband. I live in the middle of a huge city, I should be able to find Wifi if I need to look up a map.

All that being said, I wish it had a bigger hard drive. I've got 27 Gb of music, and 5 Gb of pictures (as well as ~500 Gb of video, but I don't expect to be able to take all of that with me). If this iPhone is going to replace my cell phone, my iPod, and my PDA, I need to be able to carry around all my music and photos. A graphing calulator program would be nice to, but that's another story...

I'm sure once this thing hits the market, the hot ticket item on eBay will be the unlocked version of the iPhone because of the recent degradation of Cingular's service, causing many to switch over to Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile. The reason why Apple chose Cingular is a no-brainer -- it's the largest wireless carrier in the U.S despite these flaws.

I hate multiple functionality on phones. My current phone doesn't even have a camera. I'd rather have three separate devices (phone, pda, mp3 player) that each cater to my needs than have one device that may have some good features but are a compromise of what I really want.

That being said I hope that my sister gets one of these to beta test so that I can play with it. coal

This is going to be a problem. A product with the name iPhone already exists. The Linksys iPhone has been around since 1997 and they have the rights to the trademark. So, will Apple have to change the name or will they find a way to bully Linksys out of the trademark? This will be entertaining to watch.


As the folks at Slashdot suggest, perhaps the iPod Phone would be a good name. You could then talk on your iPP while playing with your Wii.

Actually, Cisco has the trademark for a line of VoIP phones they're soon releasing.

Apple may get away with it because they are two different technologies. Linksys's iPhone is VoIP device whereas Apple's iPhone is a cellular device. But on the other hand, that may be too similar.

I watched a video displaying the iPhone's abilities on YouTube and it looks pretty bitchin'. The whole touchscreen idea is awesome, in my opinion. It completely solves the problem with trying to fit a qwerty keyboard on a tiny phone.

So I just finished watching the keynote last night and would sell a kindey for one of these.

So if anyone needs a kindey I'll trade you for an iPhone.

At work, my friend showed me the keynote and ranted and raved about how he wanted an an iPhone and how kick ass it was...then annoyed our token attractive female coworker about it, then annoyed me again, then annoyed us both at the same time.

He got especially annoyed when we both expressed how much we didn't want one because who the fuck needs all this shit?

I have a prepaid cellphone and 300 minutes for every two months (if people stop fucking calling me)...I'm happy. It's not that I'd never use all the features...it's that I'd use them too much and would probably end up in jail for running over a child.

Maybe one day...but probably not one day. Technology will be insanely advanced by the time I have any interest in this...and at that time there will be something better...I just hope it doesn't have a lower case i in it's title because that will always annoy me.

To be honest, I don't even have an iPod, let alone am any closer to getting one.. Or getting an iPhone... thing...

My cellphone doesn't even take pictures. At least I HAVE a cellphone, that's good enough for me (gotten me out of some jams).

From what I've heard, it means it won't have the bandwidth to download multimedia content. This seems really stupid to me, because the iPhone seems like a perfect device for the iTunes Music Store.

I want one, but I also want the iPod features with harddrive space.

And I'm curious to how Apple is gona play the europe market. Carrier-exclusive phones are more or less unheard of here, and I've never seen 2-year contracts.

I'm just baffled by the US phone market. I can't seem to wrap my head around it, but it seems to me that carriers are rapin americans.

So I saw a think on the lynksys website about how Cisco is suing apple over using the iphone name, which cisco has trademarked. Maybe I'll look that story up after class.

Not me. When I went to upgrade my phone they tried to get me to want to buy one, but for almost 600 dollars for the phone itself not to mention the pricey service plans it was a pretty loud no way. Also if you have a 64-bit operating system you are screwed as you can't activate it through iTunes [this will change soon hopefully].


tl;dr: No.
