palm 700w and a verizon user since 84 soon to be terminated for cingular and an iPhone
Even if it is has some qualities missing on the 700w, it has soooo much more. I'm blown away by this thing.
Apple's already up over 6% and it's only been an hour. This thing is going to be gangbusters for Apple.

Here is a blog on engadget that gives details of the presentation:
It looks awesome, albeit, the Treo can do a lot of this. Just not as easy and not with the built-in software.
its technology is from years back.
this iphone will change a lot in the market. expect lower-end versions to appeal to the broader masses.
or how did they laugh at the launch of the ipod?
creating a market where there is no market?
and that resolution.
am glad for steve and for me having switched to mac two years ago.
sync will be a pleasure.

Apple does it better nuff said, after 2 years with my Treo random address book corruption, non-existant mac support. Mac users finally have something to call their own oh ya and we have WiFi too suck it Palm! I'd like to hear Palm CEO and Bill Gate shrug this off! oh ya Zune gets games in 2008 way to go Microsoft

Palm deserved the iPhone.
The whole time we have been dealing with franken-garnet (over 2 years) Apple created this ENTIRE product. It wasn't until late 2006 that we got no antenna.
I wish I felt sorry for Palm, but they asked for it. What's even more sad is that they don't have the resources to even try to catch up. They will be bought, and laid to rest... very, very, very shortly.
Also in that 2 years for Apple: intel transistion, new ipods, video store, new macs, new OSes.

It's Palm's seeming lack of vision that's alienated so many of us. They COULD do something this innovative (well, maybe), they just don't really seem to WANT to. After all, they're still giving us BT1.2 and holding off on WiFi. No one but their R/D teams know what's going on in their collective heads. It's a shame, but it's why I left Palm when the 8125 came out. It's why I won't be buying a Cingular Treo 750, and it's why I AM getting an 8525, and very possibly an iPhone as soon as I can get my grubby fingers on one.

With features like this, and if they work as advertised...... WOW!
Built-in Advanced Sensors
iPhone’s accelerometer detects when you rotate the device from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes the contents of the display, so you immediately see the entire width of a web page or a photo in its proper landscape aspect ratio.
The proximity sensor detects when you lift iPhone to your ear and immediately turns off the display to save power and prevent inadvertent touches until iPhone is moved away.
An ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the display’s brightness to the appropriate level for the current ambient light, thereby enhancing the user experience and saving power at the same time.

I admit to being an Apple fan boy but they really have outdone themselves this time and exceeded all of my expectations. For those concerned about applications, the fact that it runs OSX should make it, I imagine, relatively easy to develop for.
My only disappointment is that it won't be released in Europe until the end of the year. I do wonder how they will deal with network customisation, I don't imagine Apple allowing this as other manufacturers do. I remain hopeful that we will be able to buy it unlocked. Until that time I will console myself with the possibility of a 3G version when we finally get our hands on it and that the Vaja case I ordered over the weekend for my 680 won't be a complete waste!
I look forward to the reviews over the coming months, especially from members of this board.....

I mean talk about innovation! I am stunned to say the least! It drives home what I have been saying for the last couple of years - Palm is a company which does ZERO innovation & rests on their laurels. They have been releasing the same dang Treo 600 for years now as an update! Not to mention the stability is horrible. Why have a device where you allow & even boast that thousands of apps can be added to increase functionality when once you do, the dang thing won't work?? I have been waiting for a reason to leave Palm & this could be it. One thing wasn't clear - does it record video too? I mean come one guys, just about every single feature of this thing is innovative. Palm are you guys asleep at the wheel???

Its a cool toy, and no doubt will sell well, but its not a Treo replacement (though it may kill their consumer base).

I was surprised at the lack of 3G not so much HSDPA, considering Apple's history with new technology. Cingular does have a 3G network but from my understanding 3G roll out in the States has been relatively slow. Perhaps this will happen for the European and or Asian release....
