Unlike other phones though, the screen is covered with glass. HUGE difference. This is a case where you should get your facts straight. Google "PC-World iPhone Stress Test". Most people will be amazed how durable the iPhone is. I dropped mine on the side walk on the display side and after my heart skipped a beat, I picked it up and there was a little tiny tiny scratch on the chrome outline. The screen was *pristine*.
As far as 3G, coming from Sprint with EVDO, EDGE is definitely slower but having WiFi is better than 3G anyways. Where I live, every 3 steps a new wireless network shows up. 3G at the launch of the iPhone also greatly cuts down on battery life, which is AWESOME on the iPhone. Sure, I'm rationalizing a feature that would have been nice to have but so far I haven't had a time where I really needed 3G. EDGE speeds are adequate, if I happen to (surprisingly) not have a WiFi network.
I don't know why people freak out the battery either as it's not the only device to do this, but that just might be me.
Having a WiFi has absolutely nothing to do with 3G. EDGE is adequate? good luck making video calls with it. and just because it's one of a few devices with a built in hardwired battery doesn't make it right.
Video calls? The iPhone doesn't support that nor do pretty much any cell phone (in the US at least). Having WiFi does have to do with 3G. If I have WiFi around, I'm going to use it even over 3G - it's always going to be faster. EDGE is adequate for the features that the iPhone has, as well as the available WiFi - which like I said in my case is what is being used most of the time. And yes, before my iPhone I had Sprint w/ EV-DO and surprisingly don't really miss it too much.
Again... I don't have an issue with the battery being internal. To each their own. It's perfectly fine to me.
