I'd like to see some sort of textured surface down both sides. I say this because a few times, when reaching for the phone, the brushed metal was just *this* much too slick and I almost dropped it. <br><br>2). A way to copy text. I found it limiting a few times to not be able to copy text from a webpage for inclusion in an email. Maybe the iPhone has this ability already and I just didn't find it. <br><br>***********************<br>[color:red]Nice Try</font color=red>

Matt (or Dave), is it true there is no manually managing music either?? Wow, that would suck. iTunes 7 is bad enough by removing the ability to drag/drop playlists to an open iPod window, but this would make using the iPhone as an iPod even less desirable for me. <br><br>FWIW, people in the comments section of that article dispute its content.<br><br><br>------<br>"Take that some place else."
if you're going to look at an iPhone review, then why not go to the best reviewing source around?<br><br><a href="http://arstechnica.com/reviews/hardware/iphone-review.ars/1">http://arstechnica.com/reviews/hardware/iphone-review.ars/1</a><br><br>15 page review for geeks that is hot off of the presses today. overall, they give the iPhone an 8 out of 10. i don't think they answer your question, so my guess is that the answer to your question is that there's no manual managing of music.<br><br><br>
manual managing of music. ? ? - take yer laptop<br><br>Lets not get to nick picky after all anyone can pick apart anything no matter what it is. Rather we should be comparing the iPhone to the other smart phones out there, because this is what the iPhone is about - phone -vs- phone NOT iPhone -vs- itself or a laptop.<br><br>Anyway can you manual manage your music on the other "smart phones" ? I dunno I don't have one. Can you copy text and paste on the other smart phones ? and so on and so on<br><br>
Take your laptop? I don't even know what you are talking about. Do you need to take your laptop around with you when you use your iPod?<br><br>Apple advertises this as an iPod as well as a phone. See for yourself. iPods have the option to sync your music automatically, or load the music manually. Syncing is convenient and fast, but limited (read the short review from the link at the top of the thread to see what I mean). Forcing you to sync is stupid. It requires that you use playlists for anything you want to listen to.<br><br>I was hoping that someone with one of these can check and see if you can turn the syncing of music playlists off. The same way you can with the iPod.<br><br>FWIW, yes, the samsung phone that came free with my AT&T plan does allow manual adding of music. And it doesn't even officially support OSX.<br><br><br>------<br>"Take that some place else."
