Just how much does Apple take their brand for granted.
This "i-phone" which as mentioned Cisco seems to have branded regardless of Apples stupidity to let them do so.
My guess is that Cisco will win hans down as that is what brandingis about.
Meanwhile, this model and level of technology is dead already. It is not a 3g model and will need to be to get in on the I-Pod. Technology of streamed video and audio. 2G is not at the races and is as dead as the original "1g" or first mobile phone.

My suggestion is that this is only a typical steve jobs promo of Apple iconism.
There are much better phons that can carry many songs out there and with 3g, they can be downloaded live and played on demand.

Too little too late. How come it has taken Steve Jobs this long to come up with the obvious....

And the Batteries were carried in Shoulder straps.
Seriously, didnt we think it was the berries with the First phone.
It was a Motorola I think. I was more worried about Electrocution and burning than "Ball Zapping"

I toddled along, excitedly, to Carephone Whorehouse to get my iPhone. 6.02pm. I was there.

There entire chip & pin system went down. A wasted trip.

I should have known. They are a shower of s**t, just like PC World, Currys, Dixons etc.

God only knows how they managed to persuade Apple to let them be an outlet.

They are a bunch of total W**kers.. their customer service is shocking.. I went in to buy a charger for one of the company phones, 22.00, wouldnt let me hand over the money, made me stand and wait for 20 minutes, while they filled out a lengthy contract to enable a customers sim card, other staff walked past me all the time, but all were to busy to press a couple of buttons on a till and take my money, absolute crap ..... grr.. left me fizzing.. so I left the charger, stormed out and did what I should have done in the first place .. sorted the old one .. hmmf

Is this the phone that is only available with a new O2 contract? If so why not wait a few weeks until it is available from france, as it will not be locked to a single provider.
