Default What would make you buy the iphone?

Please Login to Remove!

With macworld coming up, I was just curious what features the iphone would need to have for you to go over to the dark side......

Honest to God, no... I have a macbook and love it but I never wanted an iphone. For the first time in while, I am completely satisfied with my phone/8320. And trust me, that is saying allot for me who switches phones without even blinking.

More HD space than 8 or 16 GB. Where are the 80GB iPhones?

That's when I might think about it.

I would consider iPhone if it contained the following:

1. The ability to connect to the BES of my office
2. The ability to cut and paste text and images
3. The ability to save and use attachments such as images, documents, video and sound.

Regardless of all the bells, whistles and hype, I cannot get past typing on a screen. I need my qwerty. I've tried my neighboors iphone and hated it!

Buy it? Nothing. If I was given an unlocked one, I would give it a whirl, though...
