It is a natural convergence, but there are phone with iTunes built in already. And I don't think the sound quality of any phone is as good as an iPod. I still believe in fit for purpose devices. iPod, good digital camera, BlackBerry. But I don't carry a cell/mobile phone anymore....
I would buy it because i am addicted to gadgets...lol i recently ordered the bb pearl no because i was un happy but because i neded something new and got tired of carying around a bunch stuff. so i jumped on the all in one bandwagon. hopefully i dont kill me self over sure type. but back to the topic. i think a apple phone/pda would be a great addition just because of the way they take pride in there product and tend no to just throw things in the market and hope they work. Also i have 2 mac's at home and it would be cool to get a dependable device that palys nice with my mac's with out any software to download
btdown want to give any supportive evidence? I made the switch from companies that use micorsoft because THEY don't stand behind their product especially DELL... I have been very happy with my purchase of 6 Apple computers over the last year and half and purchased of 13+ ipods (I've got a BIG family). My hardware is GREAT my OS is awesome and I've have many friends i've converted over to apple that are very happy with their purchase. Stand behind their product? where else can you go in for IN store help not only with your cpu but ipod and any other apple branded product. Where else has a "creative studio" with people specifically trainined in photo shop etc. Yeah i thought so.
As for the iPhone we'll find out this week!

I'd stick with my Blackberry. If the new phone is anything like the iPod, then it will be overmarketed and underfeatured. Don't get me wrong, the iPod is a great device, but there are a lot better players out there for the price. On top of that, it's a 1.0 phone meaning a Motorola Q in sheep's clothing...lots of sales b/c of the hype but plenty of returns when it bugs out.
