3) Voice memos? Audio recording? a microphone jack was mentioned I believe
4) 2MP camera but no video capture mentioned
5) No Preview.app for reading PDFs!???
6) No TextEdit so no way to view a .doc attachment??
7) no Apple logo on front of device(I can't imagine any other company exercising that kind of restraint)
8) GPS should be doable through external Bluetooth GPS reciever
9) .Mac integration not mentioned at all, instead Yahoo! push email
10) No pics of desktop dock, but I assume it should be compatible with current iPod chargers.
11) Will developers be able to get in on this? (Skype, Mozilla, Parallels, just kidding)
12) Will Apple control the apps like it does iPod games?
13) Will they sell additional apps through iTunes store?
14) No games on this! Not even Chess!
15) Only a single battery meter is showing (Kevin Rose said it had dual batteries?)
16) I see Clock but I also hope it has an Alarm Clock function.
17) No infared! (can't use as a universal remote)
18) Didn't actually show the calendar app in action
19) I hope it supports the Nike+
1) I would agree as the interface, especially with iPhoto, seems to using distance vector graphics. I'm thinking you'll need to have Leopard to sync this properly will ALL of your Mac's features. Obvious exceptions, are the uses one gets from iTunes 8, which I'm sure will be required to use this device.
3) Voice and memo are certain. These are common on current cell phones and also available in Quicktime Pro. If they don't, it's not hard to make a Widget for this function.
4) I hadn't thought of that, but I'm guessing it does do video. What high-end, high-powered, robust cell phone doesn't?
5) Safari can read PDFs just fine.
6) You will be, not sure how, but you will. As for editing, there is always Google Docs. I now it can render pages fine, but I hope that Google starts being more "Apple friendly" with it's apps.
7) It;s on the back and it just screams Apple. I wonder how much Cingluar fought (and failed) at getting their name/logo on the phone?
9) I've never heard "push" used like this before. Sure, it makes sense, I gues JObs focuses so much on to show that Yahoo was offering it for free to iPhone users.
10) Ther was at least one. The cable is USb 2.0 with the standard iPod connector. All is compatible.
11) I see no reason why any of teh apps you mentions won't eventually be available. Paralles with TinyXP could come in very handy.
13) God, I hope not. 3rd-party developer freedom and OS X inclusion only.
14) They will be available in some fashion, I guarantee.
15) From the technical page, it seems there is only one.
16) I also guarantee a multi-alarm clock with world clock functions.
17) You might be able to use it as a Universal remote for your iTV via the wi-fi. If not per Apple, then perhaps via a hack.
19) The video iPod doesn't, and neither it or the iPhone seem to be made for working out, so I'm guessing no. However, I asked a similar question earlier and was reminded by Melgross that iPhone's built in accelerometer may be hacked, like with the MacBooks
PS: Did anyone else notice that the first pic of a working iPhone had a time of 9:41..... The exact time that Steve Job first announced the iPhone? I wonder how many pics with different times to load, as I can't imagine they had the speech time down that precise. Either way, it's those little details that keep me coming back to Apple.
