Default iPhone Predictions?

Any predictions on the iPhone's well being? Will it be the next "in" thing? Or will it just be another flop?

Several publications have already recieved units to review so here are their reviews.

New York Times
USA Today
All Things Digital
Newsweek

Could a moderator add a poll to this please? I was going to but some stupid server error completely screwed everything up. Whoopie.

Because it is smooth and shiny, that is why people are going to get it. Seriously, only because it looks like an iPod. Why the hell do you want your phone to look like an mp3 player, I don't know.

There are so many better things for 1/6th of the price.

Like, 100 fried chickens. You eat the chickens over a course of a year, and you aren't hungry for a whole year. You get the iPhone, you play with it for a week, break it, and throw it out.
...
I say go for the chicken.

Flawless logic.

Time will tell, but I'm guessing a flop like the PS3.

Look. $499 up front, $60 a month, for something personally I don't need, and not many Americans will need isn't worth it. Sure, it's revolutionary, it's sleek, sexy and has tons of features, but many of us don't need all that...at least now. It'll sell to whoever needs it. not to whoever wants it.

QFT. AT&T's antiquated EDGE mobile broadband network just doesn't compare to Verizon and Sprint Nextel's EVDO network. It took the NY Times reviewer TWO MINUTES just to load the Yahoo! homepage.

AT&T's cellular network just sucks compared to Verizon and some others. Forcing customers to use them is just torture.

Another thing...where's the goddamn 3rd party software?! How lame!

That's EDGE. AT%T and T-Mobile are going to release/expand their 3G coverage, which is comparable to Verizon's network.

In case anyone is wondering, I voted for the "Eww Mac product"

The only mac item i will ever own is the ipod. if I want a phone that can get internet, I'll get a windows based smart phone.

There's no reason to "hate" Apple. They haven't done anything bad to us. We decide if we want something of theirs. Just like people "hate" Microsoft. There's no reason to.

I can't "hate" Apple for releasing an iPod, or Mac OS. To be honest, I love my iPod, and Max OS is pretty sweet. But I'm a Windows guy.

As for the iPhone, I just can't see it being the next new thing. I can't see it being half as successful as the iPod.
