    This has popped up again in the rumour mill over the past couple weeks, but an analyst just let the cat out of the bag and Apple has been moving to trademark the term "iPhone" across a variety of countries.

    http://www.newsfactor.com/news/Analysts-Say-Apple-iPhone-Is-Coming/story.xhtml?story_id=101005UJK7XG

    Two models were mentioned:

    1] A smart phone "including integrated keyboard, video and music capability" to compete with Blackberries / Treos

    2] A slimmer phone with music capability to go after the RAZR set

    At least one of the models will have WiFi to allow wireless internet and file transfers.

    pretty soon apple will produce some iThing that will be a multipurpose phone/music/camera/planner/whateverelse accessory that will make all the other doodads pointless.

    consolodation is the key! then 6 months later, they'll release a smaller version that everyone else has to have... and the following year, different colours of that small version.

    soon you won't be Deep. you'll be iDeep... in blue or metallic green!

    My BB 8100 has an mp3/video player + 2g memory expansion. For 20 bucks I get unlimited data usage through T-Mobile (I believe the same is available through Rodgers). Bluetooth connectivity allows for wireless transfers. And it was only 200 bucks after rebate. Now that's a Mighty Taco!

    And you'll finally go out and buy one, but the day after, the prices will drop because the new one comes out. Then you won't be cool anymore.

    My Nokia 6265i is pretty much an IPhone...

    Plays media, video, radio, speakerphone(can play mp3 with speaker), bluetooth, high resolution screen, 2 megapixel camera with flash.

    it's a kickass phone.

    I can't have any of these toys anyways... either I break them cause I'm clumsy or they distract me all day and I spent 6 hours trying to upload the theme to beverly hill cop as my ringtone.

    Indeed. You totally can't bash in a person's skull with a stupid RAZR.

    Why don't we just rule over all the people who have "lesser" phones?

    Bow before our telecommunicative might!

    Apparently the only thing this phone doesn't do is go into Airplane mode.

    Touch screen phones are great in theory but aren't very practical. They're not useful during very cold days.
