Bill comments on the iPhone:

As a certified Apple User since 1990 and a stock holder since 2000 this one has a few holes. First it uses Cingular which getting any web or email on sucks big time. Verizion and Sprint have much faster data rates almost times 4. So a better wireless data choice would be cool.

2) It should of been able to use IP telephony when a wireless airport etc is found. Would have been much tighter integration with exsisting products would of been nice.

I will have one as an Apple dealer no doubt but I was a bit dissapointed on the features .
