    No removable battery kills it for me.

    No. Too expensive, at the time they quoted the price anyway. Now by the time it hits stores, maybe they'll have made some consumer friendly adjustments. Like an increase in storarge, free battery service(if it's going to truly be non-removable), durable casing, etc. Then I'll look at it. It's somewhat of a luxury item at this time though.

    Superior screen and OS X is great though! Not enough for me to dump what I have though.

    Now if this were the new video iPod they also keep rumoring about... I'd like to see a wifi and wide screen iPod. Some are claiming that the iPhone is now the new video iPod, but there's too much overhead attached to it(phone service). If they make a stand-alone video iPod like this, I'll be in line!

    How do millions and millions of iPod owners manage to keep their tunes flowing all day long? It's not that hard to dock your iPhone/iPod some time during the day if you're that much of a "power" user--at least not for me. Even now, I have to charge my Treo at some time during the day to get through.

    I think she means the Iphone without a phone (the I ) which means you can the great browser, great media player without having a poor smartphone and two year phone contract with data plan on top)

    Yes that's what I mean! Rumors of a video iPod have been floating around for about 2 years, some are saying the iPhone is it though.

    I would like to see a stand alone iPod like this.

    Now that the shock and awe has worn off, what can the iPhone do that a POS/WM Treo can't (assuming no third party apps)?

    Am I the only one that sees this a competition for the krzr/rzr and the latest and greatest "normal phones" and not full blown PDA devices? Seems to be where the market is these days anyway... Maybe even the palm based treos it will compete with but if you have a BB on BES or a wm5 device tied to an exchange server moving to this things is not feasible. Plain, simple, done.

    As much as this device interests me it is not an option. Never mind that fact that it is only available on Cingular!
