    how bad is cingular, i have friend on it that work like **** but some are really happy with it... in the perfect world I want the iPhone with Verizon and EvDO, but I might consider switching to Cing just for it... so anyway, is Cing really that bad?

    EDGE.....I guess they just want it out there for the average ipod user rather than us power user types.

    Yup, Apple just leapfrogged Palm. With the Palm OS out of development, looks like apple may become the replacement for Palm OS.

    I always wondered why the Palm Lifedrive had GB of storage while the Treo's storage was measured in MB. The lifedrive with a cellular transmitter would have been a nice package to compete.

    Yeah, if it wasn't Cingular I would have jumped on it in a second.

    Anyone see prices yet? I hit the main cingular site, and with my zip, the phone is not even shown yet.

    I am assuming it's not shipping yet?

    Depending on how this thing goes (once people actually get their hands on one) and even given the fact that I'm only paying $30 a month right now for my Sprint service w/internet included. I may be willing to deal with the ETF, switch back to Cingular, ditch my Treo, buy the iPhone, and plop down the extra $40 a month I'd have to pay for Cingular data for this (although I'm guessing that the months long backorders that will form for this product may prevent that from happening right away).

    This finally looks and sounds like what I think everyone has been waiting for for a long time in a mobile device. Time will tell if the actual product winds up performing as well as it looks on paper.

    I never thought I'd dump the Treo, but this 700p in my pocket has been a tremendous disappointment following the 650 -- with the ONLY exception being EVDO.

    From what I've read today following the iPhone announcement, I'm right back where I was drooling in anticipation of the Kyocera 7135. - which took forever to actually release following the hype. Now I hope that the promised release in June doesn't drag out any later. I WANT MY iPHONE!!!! (Goodbye PALM).

    Yeah this SERO plan is nice and all but Treo will be on their 950 model and it still might not be this nice. I'm calling Cingular now.

    Runs OSX and full Safari browsing!! It is an AMAZING piece of hardware. But Cingular/AT&T with Edge?? No thanks. I'd be the first to buy it if there ever is a Verizon/EVDO version (which will be never), although I might consider switching from Verizon for an HSPDA version as well.

    I agree, dcp. This is the first phone ever to make me even falter on my treo devotion, but no way will I EVER switch to Crapular for ANY phone. GSM only is the iPhone's fatal flaw. And no 3g even, only EDGE! re-tar-ded.

    Finally a phone that doesn't require half a day of searching for hacks or registry tweaks. I'd drop a SERO plan & a loyalty discount for that.....(calls broker to short Sprint stock)

    It looks lovely, but I imagine typing on a touch-screen keyboard would get extremely annoying after a while.

    I dunno, I'm old-school, I like my buttons.

    Jobs said this would be available in June.

    I just wonder how reliable the first-gen ones are going to be.

    Just called cingular and they said they have an "indefinite exclusive" on it. First they get the Treo 750, now this.

    Just wonder what typing is going to be like without any buttons. It is okay for a few characters, but touch screen typing might get old real fast if you got a lot of stuff to type. (just my opinion)
