    3G (EV-DO/HSDPA)
    GPS
    A real keyboard
    Removable battery

      iPhone has everything that I want.

      I think we'll be continually surprised by what they add to it as software updates. They've already added youtube.

      Games will be for sale on the iTunes store just like on the iPod (only my hunch).

      And the nice thing, a lot of those can be added via firmware updates. Some may be able to that we don't know about - we aren't aware of the actual hardware in these things yet!

      Yep, it might have a lot of capabilities that just aren't functional yet but are already built in and ready to go.

      But the list is a bit daunting. There's alot of things on that list that I would like the iPhone to do but I suppose you can't get everything in the first shot. If they sell truckloads of them and get their 1% market share then I think they'll open 'er up and add all kinds of you know what for furture version (they gotta see how well it does, or doesn't, first).

      I'm still stoked for it. Some of the things on that list are solely for the haters to latch onto, though-- Flash, for example. Cripes, I have a 1.5Ghz, 512RAM powerbook, and Flash slows IT down. How the hell does anyone expect a phone to be smooth with it?

      Anyway, I'm looking forward to Apple's updates. ...and the mods we can do
