Have you guys seen this cool new gadget by Mac. It is pretty awesome but the price is pretty high. Are any of you guys getting one?

No... I´m happy with my old clunker phone that doesn´t have a camera or music or anything because it works for its purpose ... as I phone. I also have an iPod .... so no need to combine the two.

Also, it might not be called iPhone ... depending on if Cisco settles their case. They legally have the rights to the name iPhone and Apple doesn´t really stand a chance of winning that case because they clearly ripped off the copyrighted name here thinking that Cisco would fold.

If it were only $300 or so I might have considered it but I could get an 80 GB iPod and still come out cheaper than a 4 GB iPhone after considering the cost of my new phone. Yes I wouldn't have all the PDA-like capabilities and the tight integration but I don't really need them. My personal need aside, it does look like a cleaner and more user-friendly design than other smart phones.

I will be absolutely shocked if Apple wins the trademark dispute. The latest Cisco trademark filing (1996) says "computer hardware and software for providing integrated telephone communication with computerized global information networks" Isn't that basically what a cell phone is?? Their cell phone versus VoIP phone argument should not hold up against that description. Now if VoIP were specifically mentioned in the trademark filing they might have a case but not really. I also don't see it as the same as the use of the Mc prefix that McDonald's fought against a while back.

I am starting to hate Apple's business practices more and more... but that doesn't change the fact that I prefer their computers vastly more than other brands.

They're not a computer company anymore. Apple, Inc.

I know that they are expensive, but I heard that they will be able to access the internet with all of its capabilities, if that is true which I’m not sure it is but if it is to me it would be worth it.
