Wow, that's clearly more awesome than the iPhone... SD memory, 5 megapixel camera, full QWERTY keyboard AND 7.2 mbps data transfer 8-o

Now, if only cell phone companies would concentrate more on letting me use my phone as a phone rather than a television and stereo.

Neither of these phones are out yet and people are already praising/bashing?

Well yeah, assuming it does what they say they do... that's part of the fun of electronics.

Yes but how can you pass judgement on not one but two pieces of equipment that are not even out yet? Just seems silly to me but anyway.

SD memory is a huge plus. That's why I got a Sansa instead of an iPod.

Well I don't know if it's passing judgment as much as it's just giving in to the hype. I'll admit that... the iPhone might be awesome, it might suck. Just like everything else before it comes out.

Personally, I just like talking about it... I'll never get one of these things.

of course there is the caveat that they havent been released, but the preliminary iphone specs have been released and they leave a lot to be desired. no 3G, no third party apps unless approved by apple, no GPS chip (doesnt look like you can connect one via bluetooth either), no SD card slot so you top out at only 8gigs, no user replaceable battery, no buttons=hard to play some games, no real corporate functions (view/edit office docs, support corporate email), 2MP camera is low considering the price and 3MP-5MP options on some other phones.

if the iphone were a mid-level phone those shortcomings wouldnt be bad. however, it is priced as a top of the line of phone. the released specs just dont measure up to the price.
