    Pretty amazing that we are finally getting the iPhone. Pretty cool in some points but awful in others. Now we are going to see many Att users going to Verizon and getting the iPhone even if a small percentage of AT&T ppl come here, and then a small percentage of VZW users upgrade to a smartphone because the god-almighty-iphone is in the house ... thats a huge percentage that will be added to the network strain, almost overnight(slow 3G speeds).

    No offense but I think a news post should have full proper grammar.

    Also, the only thing bad about this is that there will be now a new bootrom out.
    Which means Verizon people cannot jailbreak forever till we find another bootrom exploit :3

    Honestly, I just find iPhones to be inferior as smartphones. I don't see why so many people are "applauding" this.

    You know how the public are; iPhones are shiny so they're clearly the most awesome things EVER.

    I think you got it a little wrong.

    WP7 > Android > iOS > Blackberry > Everything else.
    With Windows Phone 7 you can get the largest laughs, the most massive movies in high definition, and the biggest battles ever witnessed on a phone. I want a phone that will save me from my phones. Windows Phone 7 is designed to let us go in and out that's why I want it. Its all there just how I want it. Windows Phone 7 is much better then anything else because its different. Its got these live tiles on its home screen that no phone has, one look and I can see what my brother is up to, whats happening on facebook, and more. Even Xbox Live! And I am done! Now I can put my phone away spend more time with her and spend less time with my phone(alone).

    Not confirmed. WSJ says its true, but neither Verizon nor Apple have ever confirmed it. It might as well be though, it seems very likely.
