But $499? Cingular only? 2 year contract?
I think I'll pass. Too much, too late! :-)
Make it $399 for an unlocked model or $149 w/ contract and I would seriously consider it tho.. Actually, I don't even know about that. I've been device-less since about 2004. I lost faith in handhelds, it may take more than the iPhone to win me back.
