Seeing that we have new members joining by the minute, we can get a bigger sample of the iPhone's most popular features.

It was the web browser for me...

I'd decided a year before Steve's keynote in January that Apple should make a phone, and that if they did I'd buy it. So I was sold a long long time ago. The feature that made sit up and go WOW! was visual voicemail. I hate hate HATE sitting through 6 voicemails in order to listen to the one that's really important to hear.

And scrolling is just wicked cool. :)

Hopefully you've discovered the "7 to delete" voicemail option, but yeah visual voicemail will be great.

Yeah, I'm swift with the 7 key for sure. But often I don't want to delete all those voicemails. I just want to get to the one I know I need to get to. It's a totally slick feature they've come up with! Anticipated my needs.

While all the other features are amazing and well executed...I would have to say the full blown web browser as opposed to "baby software" and Steve Jobs puts it is a major selling point. Nobody else puts a full blown web browser of this caliber in your pocket and executed it so well...

Just my two cents. It's worth what you paid for...lol

Yeah thats what I mean...does anyone feel like a giddy little school girl?
I'm not sure what that feels like, but I am definitely excited. For me it's the convergence of full-blown web and email, iPod, and phone all wrapped in an awesome melding of them from Apple. The complete device that will replace several others.

I think the thing that really caught my eyes on this product was the convergence of all three. Combining an amazing phone, a great iPod, and a revolutionary web browser is really an amazing task. Another thing that got me so hooked was the aesthetics of the iPhone. The nice mix of the familiar iPod silver and that glossy black really makes it take a step from great to amazing.

Also, I have never owned an iPod video, so this will really be my first venture into the portable video world. The external speaker, touchscreen, multitouch, the Mac OSX, and all of the other (patented) new technologies made it a no-brainer when I was looking into new phones.
