I know, watch everything else become out dated very soon!

Nearly bought a new ipod this winter, glad I held off now!

Price shouldn't be that bad given the FX rate at the moment, although if they're released in "Europe by the end of the year" expect a Christmas shortage and premiums for the early ones ...

Having said that, my 'phone's a 'phone. If I want a camera, I'll take a camera and I've never really been a walkman fan

Doesn't look so bad.. http://www.apple.com/iphone/technology/specs.html

Quote:
Battery

* Up to 5 hours Talk / Video / Browsing
* Up to 16 hours Audio playback


Standby time will be quite high judging by those figures..

Also, cost isn't as bad as you'd expect..

The first of the iPhones will start to ship in June, after a review by the Federal Communications Commission. The 4GB model, with a two-year contract, will sell for $499 and the 8GB model, also with a two-year agreement, will retail for $599, Jobs said.

Me too.. :twisted:

And who cares if the battery doesn't last long, it's not like my year-old Nokia holds a charge for more than a day anyways!
