Oh, and it will suck for most types of gaming. First off, obviously all controls will be onscreen. That will drastically limit what genres will really work well on the phone. Anything requiring a D-Pad and fire buttons will have to use precious screen real-estate for the controls. Considering those areas of the screen will be covered by the player's thumbs, the actual gameplay area will be reduced. However a much larger factor is tactile feedback. It would be easy to drift off of the control locations, and the tactile response indicating when a button has been pressed would be missing.

Obviously there will be a successful game market for the device, as many games exist that can be controlled completely by mouse. The hardware will undoubtedly have Bluetooth, thus an external controller (Wii, anyone?) would solve the input problem for all game genres.

Organic Superlube? Oh, it's great stuff, great stuff. You really have to keep an eye on it, though--it'll try and slide away from you the first chance it gets.

Ouch, just when I was thinking finally someone getting it, making a convergance cellphone nice to look at, powerful, as well as easy and convienent to use. Thing is this phone is sure to get hacked like crazy I would assume from the shear user base bound to buy it alone.

I love the user interface, small size, appearance, technical features like proximity, light, and orentation sensors, large internal storage, and most of all a next generation touch screen that can accept multiple touches. If done right I believe this could emulate a joystick/mouse and buttons, not as responsive but perhaps more accurate. I've been waiting for someone to finally utilize this feature so I'm glad they have finally taken the next step, hopefully the PDA/Phone market will take a swift kick in the ass, and try to improve their products as well.

I have a Qtek S100/Imate JAM and I'm quite dissapointed in its ease of use, for some everyday things its more inconvient than it should be. I dont have the time nowadays to wade through all the pda software to find what suits my needs, which in turn just adds more programs to complicate things.

I personally never thought twice about macs or apple, but this phone is something that is needed in this market I think, hopefully someone will make a PDA similar to it, otherwise I am strongly concidering buying one when the time comes.

I wanted one for about a day...then I remembered why I dislike apple. Dan's Comment ++

I'll wait for the HTC devices to catch up and be happy.

I decided not to wait for the iPhone and went with an HTC P3600 instead.

It's by far the coolest PDA device I've owned. Here's a quick rundown:
802.11b/g
bluetooth
2MP camera + second camera on front
3G wireless broadband
internal GPS (need to flash the rom to enable this)
1500mah battery
2.8in QVGA screen
mini-SD
very sleek design
great audio quality

Just a couple of downsides:
D-Pad doesn't do diagonals
No 3.5mm audio jack (uses mini-USB port for headphones)

You can get it unlocked, without contract, plus screen protector and car charger for the same price as the iPhone. Plus it's easy to develop for. :)
