As a consumer phone it will be fine, with push Yahoo mail (and I imagine google will provide push to it soon).
I didn't know people actually use voice dialing, I've always found it to be cumbersome.
And lastly, 3G is one hell of a battery drain... I bet thats why you don't see it in BlackBerrys. The iPhone does have WiFi after-all, which is the only viable option if you want mobile VOIP.
The only weak-spot I see is the text input. I own an N800 and I get frustrated when I have to input a large amount of text on its touch screen.
Oh yea, I'm keeping my Curve until Apple releases some software updates and adds iChat to the iPhone =p
