    Well it's already a phone, but here are things that you might carry around but the iphone already has.

    With an iPhone you don't need to carry around nor buy a...
    iPod
    Calculator
    Notepad
    Digital Camera
    Camcorder
    A laptop (for surfing, word processing)
    A portable game system
    A Puzzle like sudoku or crossword
    A checkbook
    A personal calendar
    A voice recorder
    A watch
    A compass
    A newspaper
    Personal Photos
    A map or GPS
    A Flashlight
    A Radio

    So besides what I have on my list, what kind of things can a iPhone replace that is something you usually carry around when your walking on the go or in a car.

    I don't have to carry a separate MP3 player or a digital camera.

    The iPhone does so much for me :D I love it.

    Unless you're one of those camera freaks who take their DSLR to Disneyland, it replaces when a simple point-and-shoot will do. DSLRs still have their use.

    As with DSLRs, desktops/laptops still have their use. Here, it could mean the difference of having to lug your laptop on a trip if your colleague asks you to do some quick editing of a document. With apps such as Readdledocs, Quickoffice and iDisk/MobileMe, it's now possible to treat the iPhone as a word processor on the go.

    I average 80+ WPM on a normal keyboard. On the iPhone it's no where near as high as that.

    The only way I can see you being faster on the iPhone is if you're a hunt and peck typer on a normal keyboard.

    As a matter of fact I do take it to Disneyland. Is there a problem with that? I paid good money for the camera and I'm going to use it.

    And for what reason makes that impossible. Why am I "not allowed" to type that fast on my iphone? Because you say so?

    No because I find it very hard to believe anyone can type that fast on the iPhone.

    Yeah, and I average 400 wpm on my iphone. :rolleyes:

    It's laughable that you think people type faster on a phone than computer. Are you really that bad at keyboarding?
