PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I have recently been in the market for a new smartphone. The iPhone looks like some nice hardware and I'm already an AT&T customer, but after Apple's trend of pulling Apps from iTunes lately I'm just not buying. Apple has proven to me that I don't want to live in a closed ecosystem. It made me realize what my real issue with Apple is: their business practices.

While I pretty much agree with everything you said, I have to point out one inaccuracy for posterity's sake. You said:

Strike 2: No SMS


But there is indeed SMS, in an iChat bubbly format no less. You can even send one message to multiple recipients as of 1.1.4, and reportedly you can SMS for free using AOL IM for the iPhone (I've not tried it myself).

Yes, true, I mistyped. I was thinking no contact sending through SMS. I couldn't believe it when someone asked me to send them someone else's phone number and I couldn't. I had to find a pen and paper to write it down. I'm use to simply selecting a contact and then SMS'ing it over.
But you are correct, SMS did exist unlimited under iPhone 1
