    I love the part about it saying it won't be called the iPhone, and that it will use two batteries! What the hell!

    It's amazing how much better the iPhone turned out to be than the rumors made it seem. Too bad the iPad wasn't the same, the rumors definitely gave a much better idea of what kind of device the iPad would be and there weren't too many surprises left.

    Go back even further in the MR archives, like 2004-2005. It's fun to look back and see the rumors that actually turned out to be true years later. We know Apple was working on the iPhone for about 3 years and if you go back you can find little bits and pieces.

    Depends on your point of view and how you use cell phones. No cell phone is best for every single person on the planet; that point-of-view is a pretty ignorant one to take and entirely too many people do it.

    Is the iPhone (any of them) a great product? Sure.

    Best cell phone ever in the history of cell phones for everyone that uses one? Not hardly...

    Good, yes, best, not even. Be nice if people could understand that.

    Unless you can find me an alien cell phone lightyears ahead of the iPhone... then no, the iPhone is the best cell phone in the history of cell phones :apple:

    Your iPhone says even with it's flaws, it's still better then the HTC EVO and years ahead of any BlackBerry which is why you have it.

    "The Kool-Aid runs deep in this one..."

    Sorry, but you're saying that a phone that's got 4G capability (and everything else available) and superior speeds because of it (EVO) is inferior to a phone that's limited drastically by 3G capability max (iPhone 4, when it works)?

    Since when does a technically superior product (EVO + 4G) suddenly become inferior out of the box just because someone likes another product (iPhone 4 + 3G)? See what I mean about "best" - because more people would say having 4G capability is definitely a superior aspect on a cell phone than being limited to 3G max.

    It's impossible to have a "best cell phone" - it IS possible, however, to have a "best cell phone for me" which is where you and most others always screw things up when making your claims which are based on purely personal opinions alone.

    Do you even bother to think at all or consider what you're about to say before you actually post something? Ever?

    And I have this iPhone 4 because it was a gift... I would never have actually paid for such a thing. ;)

    If you don't like it and didn't pay for it, why are you still using it? There are a ton of people who would gladly take it out of your death grip.

    You're in every thread complaining. S...t or get off the pot.
