Unfortunately not
Authored by: john_dough on Jan 15, '07 06:01:10PM

I have a problem when it comes to buying phones, a new one every 6 months or so, i use them a lot, and am very particular, so I am always willing to jump to the latest greatest.

I can not get a touch screen phone.

Everything else about it is extremely drool worthy, but the fact that i have to look at the screen to use it is a deal breaker for me. I can touch type on my blackberry, and speed dial with out looking at the phone while driving. Neither of which is possible with a touch screen with no tactile feedback.

However, I would gladly pay $500 for the iPhone, without the phone part. I would be happy to use it as a wi-fi internet enabled iPod. Eventually I am hoping this is the direction they go. As I already carry a phone and an iPod. It would mean I could go back to regular phones instead of the blackberry.

As of January 2008, it will be illegal to operate your Blackberry while driving (without handsfree gear).

Of course, it looks like the iPhone won't have voice dialing, so that will make handsfree gear pretty limited. And what's up with the no sync via bluetooth or wifi? Are they INSANE?
