    I'm gonna go ahead and start this thread now. I'm no iPhone hater, I came from one and it was a tough decision, so let's hope this goes to Verizon.

    As for a Tablet computer, not really up for not having a physical keyboard. A smartphone is one thing, but a computer? Not so much.

    I only care because other company will produce their own versions with similar features for (if current trends continue with Apple) hundreds less. However if the Apple one is not crazy expensive i may get excited.
