    Great posts, guys. The Japan experience and Skype. Interesting.

    Here is my extension to the iPhone spec (Steve? You there? My credit card is primed and ready...)
    - minimum 3.2 mp camera
    - integration with Aperture
    - video, integration with iMovie
    - SD card with simple backup (or storage) of sms messages, files, any anything else that's stored on the phone
    - in other words, user management of the storage space
    - easy definition of speed dial keys
    - scratchless screen
    - cleaning and maintenance not as an afterthought
    - seemless integration with Macs (really seemless, and with PowerPC macs)
    - you could add, crappy integration with Windoze but that would be plain mean
    - a version perhaps with all the OS X ease-of-use features but really tiny and without all the video options - sort of an iPod Nano/Shuffle for the mobile phone world. So that you can carry it around in summer.
    - er, there must be more.. but that'll do for now.

    Oh yes, earlier delivery!

    Needs to have lots of Document viewing features. Forget editing work, excel. I never used that much. But what I do use is viewing PDF's from work, viewing spreadsheets / docs and plain text documents. It would be really nice if it supported a palm / pocket pc ebook format such as mobireader. I even have all of the Bible and church publications on my pocket pc and use it at church instead of having to carry books around.

    Note taking (which I see an icon for).
    Remote Desktop (Windows Terminal Services).
    Some kind of password / secure information manager such as eWallet for pocket pc. I keep all my website passwords and accounts encrypted on my phone for easy access.

    I don't care much about most of the things on your list, but there are a few things I'd like to put on a list.

    ~GPS (Why tout a mapping feature and not include GPS, which a lot of smartphones already have?)

    ~.doc support (Really shouldn't be too hard...)

    ~A way to effectively organize files you have stored on the device (Again, shouldn't be that hard)

    ~A way to secure/password certain directories, without having to enter a password every time you use the device. File Vault, basically.

    ~Reliable external battery pack accessory (For example, you wouldn't want to run your battery dry watching a movie on a plane and then not be able to make a phonecall when you land)
