I do not want a media device that I have to sign a 2 year contract with.
I like the Zune...they should be focused on newer firmware updates for it...and the Zune 2...not a damn phone.
The iphone will bomb...Apple has being riding its ipod success all the way to the bank for years...they should of stuck with that, and came out with a widescreen ipod...but they messed with sucess, and come June (iphone launch date), they will see this.
MS! DO NOT MAKE A DAMN PHONE! leave that up to the big boys like Moto.
On a side not...I do hope that Google comes out with a phone...since all of there rumors say that it would be dirt cheap because you would have ads on it....I will deal with annoying ads if my phone costs me like 10 bucks a month.
I will almost guarantee the iphone will do well. It is the best media phone out there and it has the ipod name to push it along. Sure it is expensive but go ahead and check out the price of some other phones that are as close to the iphone as you can get: Nokia 93, Sony Ericsson w950. What you get for the price of an iphone is a steal. Then factor in cingular discounts and the like. It will do very well.
