The guy I know who has an iPhone can type on that thing faster than I've seen anyone type on a Blackberry. Because you don't have to press anything you can be way quicker with your strokes. And it has this sweet conversation layout so it kinda looks like an IM conversation. And yeah, they can all do it, but the iPhone is an all out iPod. It makes the mp3 player on a Blackberry look like it's ancient. Honestly the only downside to that phone is it doesn't take video, and as far as I'm concerned that's not much of a downside.
