    BlackBerrys have had copy/paste for a while. I don't really care and don't ever find myself in a position where I want it.

    Because those same gestures already do something else on the iPhone.

    That "something else" is causing the iPhone to sell really well because it looks so "cool" in the ads and demos. The number of customers who are buying iPhones because it seems cool is probably at least an order of magnitude larger than those who don't because those gestures are doing something else besides cut-and-paste editing.

    you might as well get a crackberry then. The iPod is really the great unique feature of the iPhone. Who really uses copy/paste?

    It would be nice to copy links and paste then into emails. Not everyone uses copy and paste but on the other hand many do. It's a person preference.

    by no means am i saying that the blackberry is better than the iPhone. trust me. but i am saying its a touch screen device like the iPhone and they seem to have solved the copy/paste problem with ease. and what gestures did the person above mean that the iPhone already does?

    Um, the moving fingers together? That's a pinch. It has a function in most cases.

    Why? Maybe because Jobs isn't CEO of RIM ?

    :)

    Seriously, RIM didn't have even a halfway decent browser until recently. So each company has its priorities.

    No, I'll stick with my iPhone because of it's untouchable web-browser as well as it's multi-touch screen that other phones can't seem to match. As far as all in one multi-media device, the iphone is fantastic.

    Only reason I bag on the iPod features is because of the sub-par sound quality.

    Love the phone in every other way. Well, the battery could be much better but....

    Who uses copy and paste? :rolleyes:

    Everybody that uses a computer. I've found myself in quite a few situations where it would be handy on the iPhone.

    the music player on the blackberry is actually quite nice...pretty damn close to an ipod. and all the blackberrys even have stereo bluetooth, a feature that not a single ipod/iphone has...

    This post is right on. Trust me, I'm no Blackberry fanboy. I ditched my blackberry as soon as enterprise support was added for the iPhone. But, don't give me this better ipod bs. Bluetooth stero is a huge plus on the BBs and there's really no excuse for it not being included on the iPhone. If the battery can't take it, then let people know that they use it at their own risk. Back when I was carrying an iPhone and a BB, I used to browse the web on the iPhone while listening to music on my BB and my Motorola S9s. I bet El Jobso would have loved to have seen that.

    In what aspect?

    Ease of use? iTunes makes everything unnecessary and complicated. Other mp3 players with simple drag and drop win.

    Sound quality? Like previously mentioned, the iPods in general have terrible sound quality. Other mp3 players such as: Cowon, iRiver, Toshiba, Samsung kill the iPods in the sound category.

    Design? Yes, I'll have to give it up to Apple. Their iPod's have always been sexy in design.

    Actually, you can sensd a link (well URL) from any page in Safari via Mail on the Iphone.

    To do so, when in Safari, just tap on the « + » sign at the bottom of the screen and choose « mail link to this page ».

    Drag 'n drop (i.e. getting music onto a MP3 player without using a media organizer like WMP, Zune or iTunes) simply doesn't scale.

    It works well for people who have small libraries (like under a hundred MP3s), but it's an absolute nightmare to manage after that.

    Drag 'n drop:

    * doesn't provide for an automatic way of adding new media to the player
    * doesn't track statistics used to manage the music (last played date, # of times skipped, # of times played, song rating, etc)
    * doesn't support Smart Playlists ("Newly Added Music", "Top 25 Most Played", "My Favorite Songs That Haven't Been Played in 30+ Days", "Songs That Have Never Been Played")

    I think Apple won't make it yet becasue they're confused of how to do it.. IMO...

    the crap berry sucks.. it's got a keyboard! I like the iPhone as it does everything I need in simple steps..

    People think the BB is so rubbish they're making iPhone themes for it!!
