5 hours while browsing internet/talking on phone

16 hours if solely used for music purposes.

i've stopped believing apple's claims about battery life after my ipod nano (supposedly with 14 hours of battery life) only ever lasted 8 hours at the most

I'm sure you don't have to switch to cingular. You could wait for it to come out in the UK or elsewhere on pay as you go (which to me isn't as big in North America as it is in the UK) unlock the phone from whatever network you signed on with (really easy) and then join whatever plan you wanted to.

Anyway it looks great but I thought there was something in the media a couple of days ago about apple not being apple to use the term 'iPhone' as someone else had trademarked it a long time ago. Does anyone else know what i'm talking about?

Linksys came out with an "iPhone" in the end of 2006.

Clearly Apple must have somehow gotten the rights to the name.

thanks blondes - that is exactly what I was talking about. I wonder if apple may just buy out this ocean telecoms business (i think quite common in registering trademarks) if they aren't already acting on their behalf.

My guess is that there is no "Ocean telecom", that was just a company set up to register the rights to the name without reveiling Apples upcoming release.

that would make perfect sense (i mean the reason for doing it via a third party instead of themselves). duh. Your insight is shaming me!

I want one. $500 isn't so bad really. I was looking at a phone for $500 that was nothing compared to this. I do worry about how much dirt it would pick up though, and how resilient it would be.

I think resiliancy is a good question since it must be more open to breakage since it's basically a screen. But I think Americans/Canadians totally get shafted when it comes to cellphones compared to the UK. Most phone companies give away their high end phones for free with various price plans whereas in NA you have to pay for the plan AND the phone
