Hey Tony!<div>&nbsp;</div> Thanks for linking to me.<div>&nbsp;</div> As someone who doesn't have to worry about carrying both a phone and a camera, I find having a camera phone is ideal.<div>&nbsp;</div> One website that illustrates why is<div>&nbsp;</div> I mean I'm in Seoul and they're pretty well behaved here, but it's nice to be able to whip out your phone and snap a picture of the jerk who is giving you a hard time. Somehow once they realize they're on camera and not anonymous the behavior ceases.<div>&nbsp;</div> I do hope that Apple sorts out the trademark issue. It's pretty clear that Cisco has first crack on "iPhone", but I can see Apple's argument already. Who'd mix the two products up? Plus, who is better known for electronic products named in this way? The iPod and the iMac are well known Apple products and iPhone just follows that tradition.<div>&nbsp;</div> As for convergence, I think it's a great idea. It's the reason I haven't bought an iPod actually. I have a Palm PDA that has a portable fold out keyboard, word processor, USB connection, doubles as a disk drive, an MP3 player, internet access (I don't use it though) and other features. I don't need another music player when I have one already. Of course, the issue is my Palm doesn't hold as many songs, but that's solved by carrying memory cards which slip right into my PDA carrying case.<div>&nbsp;</div> We'll see if the iPhone takes off. I think it will. I've always been one to root for Apple Inc.'s success.

I think sooner or later, some company will try to compete with iPhone. Handphone technology it growing very fast. There's a possibility that Nokia or SonyEricson will came out with a model like iPhone.
