I don't care how good it looks, I just need it to function, and to be able to function in areas where there is no data connection, so it has to be a local function.
Now that may never happen, and I have to admit that after playing with my wife's iPhone since Christmas, I'm less than impressed, so I can certainly wait.

1. internet radio..and hopefully EDGE is good enough..
2. GAMES! Something like bejeweled, chess, is all i'm wanting..not web2.0 but decent apps.
3. A file explorer type program where you can make use of the storage.
4. Email addon where you can attach files, delete multiple items, etc.
5. splash ID or similar
6. and yes..cut and paste..lol

1. You, sir, have obviously never been under the yolk of Canadian data "rates". Dark of night, we whisper tales of $2000 bills for daring even try internet radio. Seriously, though, I've been streaming audio and video via MobileSafari's QT engine over Wi-Fi and it's worked beautifully.
7. See 1.
What I'd like, and mentioned in another thread, is a Logitech-killer wifi remote control for Front Row, iTunes, Apple TV etc. devices.

Well i know not about the $2000 bills..but i just mean something similar to pockettunes on the treo that streams radio. I'll even use the centro at times because of this. It's done over EVDO. I'm not usually near a wifi spot unless i'm home.
I suppose i might try using the safari browser to see if it'll stream at sites..haven't tried that.
5. yeah i'm all for a password app of any kind. Doesn't have to be splash. It seems every day i'm asked to supply a userid and password for something..
Now slingbox i would think has to be run over wifi til they get a 3G phone.

Real satnav. Like this:

Of course it's not completely clear from the video how far iGo have actually got, or if indeed the video is really of an iGo product at all.

Did you mean "read," Mike? Because it can already do that (except for powerpoint, though that's included in the 2.0 version of the OS.)
I just finished my first iphone-native application using the official SDK. Amazingly simple to write pretty complex applications, especially given that my objective-C is not the greatest (I'm a longtime c++ programmer, however).
For those of you who remember the big virtual memory discussion, turns out the iphone DOES have virtual memory. It operates a bit differently from the desktop version, though, so you are limited to physical memory space.

And so you will also see that it does indeed have 1GB of RAM, but not for the virtual memory as you typically think of it, as you just stated. It is memory that actually lets the thing compile on the fly and store the stuff there.
But of course I'll never get an apology. I just get banned.

You mis-remember, Archie. I stated all along that there was virtual memory, and I was opposed by Surur and others. I don't think I've ever agreed with Surur about much of anything.
There is no "compile on the fly." GCC 4 is used to compile on the desktop. Perhaps you are using "compile" in a less technical sense?
And you get banned not for your positions on things, but for making personal insults.

In response to me you had said:

Amy Winehouse callled...she wants her crack pipe back.
You like to lie, as you are patholgoically incapabale of separating your incorrect interpretations from reality.
This all comes down to an inferioroty complex because you were a Mac user in a world of PCs. (How sad is that...)
Take the lips off the crack pipe...you obviously have not done even one bit of real research.
I guess you aren't just on crack, but meth and special-k too.
I was going to respond point by point, but it doens't matter. You just make up the fact to suit yourself (and if you even read, I gave you laptop prediction regardless of size.)
you have no fargin idea what you are talking about.
Archie is back and still spouting nonsense
You really, really should lay off the Kool Aid.
As long as you want to come to class, I will continue to school you accordingly.
I've been waiting for you to come back so I could laugh at you!
the best argument against crystal meth use that I've ever seen.
Archie, considering your problem, its not surprising that you managed to read only half of RIMM's press release.
It goes on and on and on.
I am an ***** and have no idea what I am talking about,
I have "Downs Syndrome",
I am "unable to function in real life",
I am "uninformed",
I am a "Liar",
I "Go off topic and don't admit that I lie",
I "double lie",
I "have problems beyond lying",
I "misrepresent the point",
I state nothing but "logical fallacies" (don't even know what that means)
I am "completely wrong in every statement" that I make,
I have no regard for the law and will be prosecuted,
That last one in particular makes me laugh.
