    Why would that be necessary? Hasn't this device had more than enough positive hype already?

    There's a Slashdot thread on the AnandTech iPhone dissection/destruction. Two brilliant comments made me laugh:

    It's like some kind of warped geek snuff movie
    That noise - as if millions of fanbois suddenly cried out in shock and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened....

    agreed. No positive comments needed. After reading these, I am happy to stick with my 755p for now. I need file management, a mail client with the functionality of Chatter, and Salling Clicker! (though I bet someone will develop a remote app before long...)

    Seems they may have a headphone jack issue like treos (bummer dude): Page 2 Captain Ken post

    My built in speaker isn't working.
    Volume is set to high, silence is off. I plug in the headset and can hear just fine. I've rebooted and reset the phone. Still no luck.
    Any have suggestions?

    Mine is so cool, I just lay on it and roll around. Seriously. There are a few quirks, but it works EXACTLY as advertised. I've never had a phone (treo) like that.

    should we paste in a positive user comment for every negative one you provide? that wouldn't be very useful, would it.

    c'mon man......
    Actually I would like all the positive comments in the same thread. That way, one could judge the importance of the +s and -s.

    At this point -'s are winning. I knew the device was rather limited, but I certainly didnt expect so many crash reports. I also feel for the poor people who waited in line for 6+ hours and still are not activated. Lots of those reports out there

    So it looks like it has 128 MB RAM. Thats not a lot for a full features OS, but then again the iPhone does seem to be a bit short on features...

    It's easy for anyone to comb through forums and only relay the negative information.

    I'm pretty sure this phone will smash the market share. It's just incredible. I've used the 600/650/700wx/6700/Q/8703e/Mogul and this iPhone completely owns them all. I realize it's hard to like an Apple product, but as a MSFT-mostly guy, I'm astonished.

    Whatever your knee-jerk opinion is of the iPhone, at least test drive the thing before plastering nonsense on the internet.

    Umm shouldnt you give it more than a few hours before you become truly satisfied/dissatisfied with it? Let the mystique wear off first

    lol. Ok man. I'm just a kidd-o who likes kewl things. Not really. I am a heavy business user (see post history) and enjoy non-work things as well. The iPhone fits the bill for me beyond my expectations. Imagine if this was the 1st ever Treo or WM device. Apple got it right, no matter how hard that is to realize.

    Oh well. Whatever works for you, I suppose. I'm elated with my superficial toy.

    Oh you are right. This is cute:

    Having problems getting more than a whisper from this iphone speaker. The ringer and ipod is making sounds but it's too quiet. A mosquito buzzing around is louder. Already gone through the settings and max the volume control. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    All surer has been doing is posting some of the impressions of those who bought the thing. And I bet more people still havent been activated than those happy with it. Wonder when AT&Ts 14days start...1.5 days to get activated only 12.5 days to evaluate it.

    People are expecting pefection. The bar is off the charts high. Again, imagine if this was Palm's or MSFT's first entry ever into the mobile phone market. People would be giving them mega credit for taking a swing, and defending it at every opportunity. B/c it is AAPL, people want something that works as if it has been around for years and has every single bug/issue ironed out.

    I'd say for a 16-hr old device, my iPhone has already surpassed Palm/MSFT/RIM's best ever work.

    Just my opinion.

    Gotta go cut the grass now, so I'm outta here. :hmm:

    I hope for the iphone fans you are correct. I also hope Stevie adds some missing features for you guys like MMS & A2DP. Things that should be there from the beginning.

    But I dont know what you are talking about with MR as my 700wx has been solid from the start.

    "for you guys" you mean, you....the actual owners don't seem to care (or know what it means)

    your 700wx? it should be solid, brick solid.
