    Wow. You are indeed right. I just Googled the HTC TyTN and found it available on Amazon. Price is pretty steep though ...

    yeah... extremely steep

    ebay prices seem more reasonable (400-600 range)...

    but in some cases, might be cheaper to get from cingular (mine cost me 299, from an AD though, not official orange store), and pay the deactivation fee... assuming it can be unlocked for other carriers.... which i'm sure it can, just need to find out how...

    but the point is moot since i'm assuming BB users love their BB's, and wouldn't want to switch to a WM device if they can avoid it....

    if there'd have been a BB with wi-fi, 3G and touchscreen, i might have gotten a BB instead of a 8525 running WM5.0.... since i'm not a super huge MS fan....

    i'll definitely be checking out the iphone when it hits later this summer (i admit i'm a mac/apple fan )


    cheers

    Not a fan and have predicted a big belly flop.

    Aside from all the weaknesses of the product, do the math ... Apple has ONE sales distribution channel for this phone and that is Cingulbar. Cingulbar has committed to sell 20 MILLION of these puppies. That's 20% of their subscriber base. God himself could design a phone from heaven and he wouldn't get 20% of Cingular's total subscriber base to go out and buy it.

    If you absolutely must have this thing, make sure you live in a warm climate (you won't be able to use it in the winter in cool climates) and WAIT until the price drops (and drop it will). Supply and demand my friend. Apple is manufacturing 20 MILLION of these things with the Cingulbar/AT&T branding and there is no way Cingulbar/AT&T can sell that many of them to their subscribers. Sooner or later, the prices on this puppy are gonna be rock bottom.

    I can wait, and I very well might I'm not dead set on it, and may decide to wait for iPhone gen 2...


    cheers
