Um, no. A silver body and spaced keys doesn't make a device a Treo any more than a full qwerty keypad makes a device a "Blackberry killer"...

It is good job security for IT. If they're into wireless device support anyway... ;)

I think you're right but only until consumers realize that comparing the iPhone to WM devices and BB's is an apples and oranges and I guess bananas (pick your third fruit) comparison. Once you start actually researching the devices you'll see how different they are. The iPhone really is more of a Sidekick competitor as Ryangoo says. There will be Apple fanboys and other geeks who will jump to it but the latter won't be very happy with just EDGE and no third party app support. I mean, to me, it's like considering the Chevy SSR versus a real pickup truck if you want a flimsy analogy. The iPhone's not a one-size-fits-all solution as all the hype would lead you to believe (not any more so than any other device anyway).
