I need GPS and don't want to buy a $200-300 device that doesn't support Macs when I can buy an iPhone that has built in Apple support.

Garmin has announced Mac support for 2 years and still hasn't produced. I would have bought one right away, but forget it if it's available on a phone (like most good phones out there).

Just in case you weren't aware... the iPhone wasn't announced 2 years ago.

If the iPhone flops, or has disappointing sales, I am convinced it will be because of the small memory. If you mainly want a phone that plays music, you may be ok, but with all the emphasis on its video capabilities, it really should have come with a large hard drive.

I think video capacity is a minor issue. Last I saw, the usage of the video playback feature of the iPod video devices comprised of a very small fraction of the overall use of the device.

This page claims that video use is only about 2% of the time the device is in use:

It appears that iTunes video sales are still less than 5% of that of iTunes music sales.

Ok, I think we can stop giving fluidinclusion a hard time on this. I think what he meant to say was that he has been waiting for 2 years for a phone LIKE the iPhone, obviously NOT the iPhone exactly. I know I sure have been. Even the latest/greatest always have the suckiest UI for ANY device, let alone a damn cell phone. So, I too have been waiting for a phone LIKE the iPhone.

I took the two year wait for iPhone to mean that the wait was for an unannounced, rumored or speculated product.

I suppose... but then, how many have been waiting for a (rumored) new iMac, or (rumored) touchscreen displays?

Both Sprint and ATT/Cingular usually do pretty badly in the national customer service surveys (JD Power, etc.), so... half a dozen of one, six of another. \

Okay that is really funny.

Good one.
