Does anyone know if the iPhone will work with car/home stereo systems as the normal iPods do? That is, will one be able to control and select tracks, albums, etc., from the steering wheel controls?

I have heard that it will work with all "stereo" type accessories that work with the regular iPods (little speakers, intertainment centers, so on). So I imagine that would include car hook ups as well.

Good call! I referenced his first article right after the Keynote, but I didn't recall anything about dock accessories.

When it comes right down to it, Apple really had no choice. If this is going to be the next iPod (amoth other things), then it should connect the way current iPods connect.

If it works like the iPod, and this is obviously the first version of the iPhone, would it make more sense to go with the 8mb vs the 4mb for music? I plan on holding on to the phone for awhile and would rather spend a little more now than a whole lot more later to upgrade.

Say it with me, "GIGABYTES! GIGABYTES!"
The iPhone will come in 8 GIGABYTES (g) or 4 GIGABYTES (g), not Megabytes (mb).

Go for the 8 GIGABYTE (g) if you are planning on holding on to it for awhile. It will be worth it in the end, especially if you plan on putting a lot of music on it.

Actually, 'g' stands for grams. :p The SI unit for giga- is 'G'. Similarly, 'm' is milli-, not mega- (M). Finally, 'b' is bits, or one-eighth of one byte (B); 'mb' would mean millibits, 'MB' means megabytes.

And yes, for what one will be keeping on the iPhone I absoluetly agree with springing for the larger of the two capacities. Without an expansion card, no way to increase storage once you're full.

Thanks for the clarification. I'll take your suggestion and go for the 8gig version when it comes out.

Haha...this is my first time reading this thread but I was about to post the same thing you did.

For a guy that was trying to correct someone, he/she sure did a poor job of it. :laugh2:
