    It's listed as a GSM device,
    so probably only for Cingular for widest customer base.

    It's quad band so in theory you could get it unlocked and use it with
    T-Mobile.

    Jobs said they developed their new phone with, and for, Cingular which,
    he said, is the best carrier with the most subscribers. He said that
    Cingular and Apple will continue to work together to innovate with this
    phone and other ideas.

    He also said that they are changing the name of the company from Apple
    Computer to Apple, Inc. because they are no longer just a computer company.

    Take a look at http://www.apple.com/iphone/
    and tell me what PDA function you think is missing.

    It runs OSX so whatever PIM functions (or ANY functions really) you could
    run on your Mac you could run on this (in theory, we won't know till June I
    guess).

    The strangest thing is that it's not 3G. It's only EDGE.

    Yes, but why wouldn't they include 3G so that it can use Cingular's
    HSDPA networks. EDGE is too slow. The original reports on the iPhone
    said that there would be two versions, a lower cost EDGE version, and a
    higher cost 3G version. Maybe the 3G version is the follow-on product,
    but spending $600 for a phone without 3G is ludicrous.

    During the presentation it was mentioned that there will be 3G support
    though no timetable was given. Not due until june, a lot could change
    between now and then.

    yeah - that's what originally clued me into it being on Cingular.

    I think waiting a few months to same how this all sorts out is what's in
    order anyway. Thankfully (I guess) my Cingular contract prevents me from
    doing any upgrading for a few months.

    They can sell the current phone in Europe too; all the features they
    have work there as well. 3G support on the phone is valueless in Europe,
    however, unless the phone also supports 2100 MHz, and a 5-band phone is a
    problem no manufacturer has tackled yet.

    Maybe they're leaving that for their next trick. I can't imagine this
    phone will remain at $600 forever (the first RAZR I saw, in Hong Kong,
    well before Cingular began to sell them, was US$1000).

    I see it says it also does wifi. It will be interesting to see how
    Cingular is going to hobble that up to force you to use their $network$.
