The iPhone will need atleast these features to make me consider buying one
1. A way to get my corporate email. Right now that either means blackberry or Exchange direct push compatibility.
2. An IM program. Even if I need to pay extra, I have to have it.
Anything extra (like 3rd party apps) would be great, but I need my phone to do these two things. If it does, I will definately consider getting one. If not, I wont.

Also, I read that we will see 3rd party apps that go through Apple review and meet their quality control standards, which isn't a bad idea. I know I'll want stability on my iPhone such a novelty.

Try WinAmp, I think it's lighter. One problem, you may have to correct some of the tags it enters on ripped tracks. Another problem, if you listen to foreign CDs, it doesn't do unicode.

Ive got 2.5 GB, with no swap file, and its brilliant for multi-tabbed browsing. No longer will you have any lag when going back to pages not opened recently, due to them being swapped out to HDD. You can also easily resize the whole browser window without it having to load each page back into memory again.
Memory is relatively cheap (though I had to pay about $300 for 2 GB of it) but its well worth it for the improvement in experience. It will also make your computer quieter by allowing your HDD to spin down.

I remember a few years ago I bought $100 of ram for my parent's PC to up it from 128 to 372 or something like that. Instantly made them feel like it was a new PC and I was a hero. Combined with some vigilant spyware monitoring, they're still using it.

But what if you used Photoshop, an FTP program, Dreamweaver, watched videos and listened to online music? Plus synced your music to your MP3 Player. Burn and ripped CDs. Updated your phone's software. Ran anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall. Went to a lot of websites that seem to have Flash. Etc, etc. etc. Everything is draining resources. That's why all new computers have at least 1GB and now 2 seems it will be the new minimum soon.
