So, iPhone.. Tempting..

I'll admit that when there's some brand new technology that comes out and everyone wants it, I get the urge to want it too. I felt that way when the Xbox 360 came out, Satellite Radio, and the PS3. So now it's the iPhone. Sure when I looked at the price I said hell no, and when I heard about AT&T being the provider I laughed, and when I read that it's internet technology was old it sealed the deal I wasn't getting one.

But a friend of mine has it and she showed me how it worked. I don't care what "old" technology it uses for it's internet, it's pretty quick. Imagine you are traveling somewhere and you are bored. Hit up the internet, go to youtube, and watch some vids on your iPhone. How bad *** is that?

The screen is pretty massive, it's got a long battery life, and it's like having a mini laptop with you. I think it's pretty nice, but I can still wait to get one. I might change my mind soon though when they release next generation iPhones with more hard drive space, and other tid bits.

Anyone else get to try one of these phones out or at least see them up close?

Re: So, iPhone.. Tempting..

i'll wait til the next generation of them. first gen is bound to have bugs. plus it's overpriced... bill of materials says that the parts only add up to about $260... the rest goes into apple's pocket

so yea, i'll get one, but i'm gonna wait until it's a much better investment (3g cellnet, loads more flash memory *32gigs at least*) and about $150 cheaper

but i do think that it's a nifty piece of hardware

Too expensive. I do want a PDA/Phone combo deal, though. That iPhone is pretty slick, too. But it's Apple. And I hate Apple.

Re: So, iPhone.. Tempting..

Not tempted. At all. And pretty much everything I could do with it, I would rather do on a machine that is made specifically for that.

Oh lol, I tried to make a post in this forum the other day from my phone, it took me 15 minutes to get logged in and find out it still wouldn't let me post lol.

while i am not a mac hater (nor am i fan), the iPhone's OS is incomparable to an iPod's OS. its like comparing xbox to windows. the iPhone uses a customized version of OS X.
