- The last round of iPods had a reputation for their plastic developing scratches easily. The WHOLE FACE of the new iPhone is plastic.
- There are no controls on the phone other than the touchscreen. If that breaks, you have to get a new phone.
- The size of the drive is the same as the iPod Nano, and the iPhone has video capability. Video EATS up HD capacity, even the MPEG-4 format used for the iPod.
- The phone is being offered as an exclusive through Cingular. I've heard mixed reviews of Cingular's service.
- The cost...$600 for the largest size. Not a lot of difference in cost, easier to get the biggest...which will sell out the fastest.
UPDATE-Oh, and add this.
You can't replace the battery. Which means when the battery wears out, you have to get a new phone. I've only had two cell phones over five years, and the only reason I changed phones was that the old phone's screen was dying.
