    Next might be the palm centro. My buddy has one. Neat little phone. I hate windows mobile devices. I owned one prior to the iPhone and hated it. Not sure if things have changed since MS released Windows Mobile 6, but version 5 was crappy.

    I'm kind of shocked to see the Blackberry mentioned right alongside the iPhone, as though they were even in the same league.

    As far as features go, lots of phones trump the iPhone. But as far as usability, intelligent UI, and design go - nothing even comes close. If I had to choose a different phone, anything would do - they're all vastly inferior to what I've become used to with the iPhone.

    Man, thats is kinda obvious but if there were no iphone what you would choose? and why? and i exclude the blackberry not because is same league or whatever. I just dont want people anwering the blackberry :p

    Be creative and post your opinion also there is a lot of phone with better spcs in some parts of the iphone like the camera and sms features.

    Samsung Tocco maybe? It's probably the nearest thing to an iPhone (UI wise) without being an iPhone we have, even though it's obv way off. It seems to be quite popular in the UK, as is the LG Viewty.

    Well, if the iPhone wasn't available here in Japan, I'd be using a garbage cookie-cutter, shiny plastic POS.

    Thank god the iPhone is sold here. ;)

    That's because the “canny” UK general public is encouraged to think they are getting something better by the carriers/stores which don't have iPhone. If every network carried the iPhone, I don't think we would hear half as much about the Tocco or Viewty.

    [1] I like the Nokia E71, which seems to look better in real life than if does in the photos.

    [2] I also like the look of the Sony W890i, but not sure I'd want to own one.

    Other than that I can't really thing of any other phones.

    If I didn't have an iPhone, in order of want:

    -Nokia E71
    -Moto Q9h
    -Nokia N95
    -Touch Pro

    I prefer WM standard to WM Pro, and I prefer a full keyboard...frankly, the E71 is dead sexy and if I found a good price it would be tough to turn it down.

    that new HTC diamond or w/e its called. I think it's probably the second best phone. It would probably be the best if not for the crappy windows mobile OS.

    i'm leaning towards the Nokia E71, and pretty much most of the new devices coming out of the HTC camp.

    HTC Touch Diamond is a nice phone.

    But WinMo for the loss. =(

    I had a Palm Treo 680 before I got the iphone, I do miss alot of the features form it, the removable storage,the easy to type on keyboard, copy/paste, MMS, Being able to do just about anything over the air, without syncing.
    Loving the iphone though, can do without alot of the other stuff missing, the web browser alone makes up the difference!
    But the Treo is definitely a cool phone, will always be a back up for me. Or like mrtune said, the Centro rocks also, same as the 680, only smaller.

    Hell, I've been stuck with Japanese POS phones for six YEARS. Seriously, one garbage phone after another. Very irritating. :mad:
