WiFi - unbundled
Authored by: azstefano on Jan 15, '07 09:50:48PM

The iPhone appeals to me as an IP communicator with the cellphone as an adjunct. I would buy an iPhone only if I had unrestricted and unbundled usage in areas where I had access to Wireless LAN. HSDPA/3G has no appeal to me - too many cents/bit. Edge/2.5G is just fine for voice use outside of WiFi areas.

If the iPhone doesn't allow third party VoIP, iChat and file transfer, I have no use for it. I don't need an additional $70/mo. subscription when WLAN gives me so much better value and flexibility. "Convergence" isn't worth such a shackled device.

The device and its interface seem like a home run. It may not be too long before Apple takes the shackles off.
