Another follow-up on the iPhone:

Some more Positives:

   - Keyboard becomes larger when in landscape mode--but only in Safari
   - Has a small external speaker so you can hear YouTube videos
   - Apple says software updates will be free
   - Most people claim the battery is pretty good


And some more negatives:


   - Safari can't render pages with embedded Flash, and doesn't work with
   some other web based technologies
   - Can only use Apple's available ringtones-- Can't import your own
   - No copy/paste of any kind from any app
   - No bluetooth hookup for your car. Bluetooth is ONLY good for
   connecting a headset. That's it. No printer support.
   - Need an adapter for most 3rd party headphones because of recessed
   headphone jack.
   - Battery good for only 400 charges, then you have to return the phone
   to Apple (what do you do for a phone while it's getting a new battery
   replacement?)
   - No file browser whatsoever
   - Camera for Dummies. No settings for the camera at all. Just a
   button.
   - No Speed Dialing (where you press and hold a number for a couple of
   seconds and the phone dials)
   - No Voice Dialing
   - Making a call, can take as many as six steps: wake the phone, unlock
   its buttons, summon the Home screen, open the Phone program, view the Recent
   Calls or favorites list and select a name.
   - No Games. None.
