I expect this to be a PDA, so I expected native 3rd party app (official support).. if not...... I won't throw $300 for a browser...

exactly. apple should be marketing this thing as a PDA. if mail, stocks, etc get their act together on this thing it'd be perfect.

iPhone is not a phone. it's some sort of bar-shaped ipod/pda thingie with a speaker. when i use a phone, i want to use a phone (http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=us&lc=en&ver=4000&template=pip1&zone=pp&pid=10875)

I think a mail app will come down the track, somehow

This is purposeful crippling (hopefully things will come officially at a later date) - They have the potential to EASILY put these apps on the iPod, and just don't want to. Pity they don't have any competitors anywhere close to them so that they have to put these things on an iPod...

no, its fine, I just think when people really think what they mean by "iPod", they will find out that iPod is just an enhanced portable media player, which is practically a "single function PDA". once there is an OS and can support theoretically unlimited apps like a computer, it becomes a PDA..

This is indeed a very unfortunate thing.
