I have never really liked anything Apple.... They are nothing more in my opinion than a smaller version of Microsoft....

I was just kidding.... I really think it is junk and would not buy one if they slashed 80% off the price...

sorry lunk i think its the fact your beastie has lost his that makes you say that. In my opinion its built very well and the OS is great. their are flaws but their are also flaws with my 8800 as well.

ezrunner, were people going for the 4gb or 8gb or both.

It's a smart move for them because the hype is gone. It makes it more interesting and affordable for those who wanted it but WAITED for it go lower.
It will be interesting to see how the market does with these new prices and products!
I am liking it more as a second phone! Or as a ipod/video player.

Didn't the iPhone just sell some massive amount during July? And forecasting 4.5M before the end of the year? Sounds like they are doing exceptionally well.
