HTC Touch and the HTC Universal. The touch is smaller than the iPhone, and has a QVGA screen. The HTC Universal is much larger, but has a 3.6 inch VGA screen and UMTS, and one of the best mobile keyboards.
Come October I am buying the HTC Omni, a large but thin device with a 4 inch 800x480 screen, HSDPA and a large roomy keyboard and GPS. As you can see, I dont mind giving up ease of use (or even size) for features. Apple obviously does not develop for me.

iChat (instant messenging program)
iPhone file browser
select/copy/paste text functionality
better Leopard integration (i.e. drag and drop files)
full Spotlight searching
Exchange support for other non-IMAP protocols
software camera stablization system
WiFi based file sharing (share photos, etc with other iPhones nearby)

Don't think that will ever happen

An SDK would go a long way to making the iPhone better.
I still want my 3G... ;-)
Saw my second iPhone in the wild today, btw. I asked the guy how he liked it.
"the best iPod ever".
What about the phone?
"It's all right".
What about wifi?
what about edge?
But overall, a happy camper.
(he did complain about the recessed jack, but said "it's Apple, what do you expect?" (I chuckled at that).
iPhone has already been throughly hacked, so Apple's intentions may not have much to do with it in the near future.
One wonders if, like the PSP, hacking the device will become a mainstream activity, since the things it allows, such as custom wallpaper and ring tones, are pretty mainstream also.

So are you saying that if the phone doesn't ring the blackberry logs the call? Or are you saying the blackberry always rings? I don't know how you could log a missed call if the phone doesn't ring.
Don't know why you are getting missed calls. Have you tried powering it off and then back on to see if it fixes the problem?

And people wonder why I say investment banks have no itegrity...
JP Morgan reverses it's comment about a Nano iPhone, saying Kevin "your career is over here" Chang did not have secondary verfification.
Now they say a 3G iPhone in early 2008...
Well that would be HSPDA...and I wonder which rev it will be.
And if Apple and AT&T will charge more for it.

In fact on the WM Treo, it's just a flat-out option under settings: Interrupt data session for call or don't. :thumbsup:
EvDO Rev A is supposed to allow both voice & data at the same time, though it is unclear at this point if that will be optioned by Sprint/Verizon to do so (there are conflicting reports)

Since its really bothering me, I popped a tmobile sim from work into a blackberry and did some side by side testing. In regards to missed calls going straight to voicemail, the exact same thing happens on my tmobile blackberry than whats going on on my iPhone. If data is being transmitted, the call goes right to vmail, with no indication of a missed call.
I guess I never really noticed it because I only went to mobile and wap sites on my blackberry.
I guess Edge really stinks.

Circuit Precedence over Packet Data (CPOP) - you'll never miss a call due to a data session. The technology is available for some 2.5G systems like 1xRTT. Apple wisely avoided Verizon's "inferior" network to use Edge instead.
