    "Data tooth" for some reason I laughed out loud when I read that.

    On topic: I like the features on the iPhone, especially the new 3G. It will have everything I could really use.

    Read a little to know what you're talking about.

    Bluetooth is data, for starters. There is no Datatooth.

    Everything can always be improved. I want a gigapixel camera with a 30x optical zoom, a 1,023 YB flash chip, one year of talk time, and a Beckton processor behind the wheel.

    I agree, they need full A2DP support on the Bluetooth. But for this to work, they would also need a decent file browser and support for opening the files with various apps (eg. opening a picture with the photos app, but without it being in the photo library). Apart from that, I am happy with the hardware - I have no use at all for a front facing camera, and the rear one, I don't really need it to be amazing.

    You are from one weird place :)

    What you're thinking of is A2DP

    EDIT: I'm wrong, it's not A2DP, just plain old Bluetooth data transfer.

    Not to split hairs or anything A2DP is the Bluetooth profile for stereo audio over bluetooth. It would allow for you to listen to your music over a pair of wireless Bluetooth stereo headset. IPhone does need this profile enabled being that the iPhone is sort of their flagship of the iPod line.

    Data Transfer is made up of OBEX (object exchange... lets you bluetooth pictures, contacts, etc.) and DUN (dialup networking.. what most people call tethering).

    There are about a million others but those are the ones that most phones have.

    Since all this support exists in darwin (the OSX kernel) there's no technical reason why it couldn't be done - apple have just chosen not to. It remains to be seen if they let a 3rd party do it.

    I know, I was mixing two things together! hence why I added the 'EDIT' :)
