Question for those in the technological "know"

Postby Mugrila » Fri Nov 16, 2007 7:06 pm

So it seems I'll be looking to get a new cell phone as well as a new ipod in the not too distant future, and I was curious if anybody had any experience with the iphone. I'm wondering if that would be the most cost efficient decision since the last phone I bought a year and a half ago ran me about $150 after rebate while my last ipod was around $300 or so (20G, whatever generation 3 years ago.) I have about 2700-3000 songs on there now, so the size of the iphone may be a concern, but I suppose I could cut out some of my songs if necessary. Anybody have any input/suggestions?

I have the iPod Touch and it is simply amazing. I can only imagine how much better the iPhone is with additional features like the phone and camera. If you can, I would wait 6 months though. I think they will be revamping the iPhones early 08 with even more features and a bigger storage.

Storage shouldn't be too much of an issue since you don't really need to carry 20 gb of music and you can always update your iPod/Phone with a different list.

EDIT: Maddox's rant on the iPhone. As much as I love Maddox, the language is too harsh.

all you need to know about the iphone

If the songs are your main concern then the iPhone will be fine.

Do you know if there's any talk of them doing that with the iPod Touch anytime soon? I'm planning on getting one for Christmas but I'll hold off if that's the case, because last time I got an iPod, they came out with color screen ones about 3 months later.

Supposedly the 08 version will be 3G capable. Why they left that off the original I will never understand.
