BBCool: Right, right. Ok, so not only are you believing the hype of the iPhone, you’re contributing to it.
100%. There is no hype. It was funny – the second i say iPhone coming, I called a friend and was like, â€œYo, weâ€™re going to the Apple Store. Get ready.â€ Heâ€™ like, â€œthere isnâ€™t an iPhone, its smoke and mirrors.â€ I said watch… We were refreshing Engadget like the rest of the world just waiting – and boom! I was leaving the office heading to Apple Store, then Jobs said â€œJuneâ€.
BBCool: Oh, come on – we all knew it was coming.
Well, hereâ€™s the thing: we thought it was coming, but we didnâ€™t think the widescreen iPod was with the phone. We thought they were separate.
BBCool: It’s not an iPod – it’s the iPhone with mp3 capabilities or iTunes capabilities.
Dude, itâ€™s an iPod. A full iPod damnit!
BBCool: It’s either one or the other â€“ an iPhone with mp3 or an iPod.
Iâ€™m excited â€“ donâ€™t ruin it for me.
BBCool: I think it’s ridiculous that people are saying it’s three devices. The majority of “smart” phones out there have the same capabilities that this one does, and the manufacturers/carriers/etc. don’t whore it out like three different devices like Jobs did. I’m a fan of Apple, but there’s no tricking me here.
I mean, yes and no. In theory youâ€™re right, but it really is an iPod,. And lets see the browser, but as far as we know, itâ€™s OS X, so developers can port apps over extremely easily, I read.
BBCool: We’ll be surfing Safari (Appleâ€™s browser).
Real Safari. Come on, dude. Thatâ€™s not other devices. If it has Quicktime/flash etc. support, itâ€™s over.
BBCool: Apparently it’s got flash (could be wrong).
Really? Game over. See you later. Going to hibernate ’till May.
BBCool: I’m not giving up on my BlackBerry.
Me either, but you know what – I ask everyone thatâ€™s getting a device, do you want email first? or a phone first? And that is still true. With the iPhone, what can you say? Do you need an iPod first? Full internet with all the bells and whistles? Email?
BBCool: I really wish you wouldn’t refer to it as an iPod.
Itâ€™s an iPod, damn you! But the BlackBerry is the best at what it does, and thatâ€™s email. If it wasnâ€™t for BlackBerry Messenger, I probably would have switched, or at least not been so loyal. The damn PIN. Itâ€™s so addictive. How sick of a society are we? Email is too slow now, we PIN each, and then we donâ€™t use PIN-to-PIN, we use BlackBerry Messenger because its even faster.
