The biggest concern that I have with iPhoen - and I woul love to have
one - is the missing interface for software developers. My current
phone runs a custom car navigation software including built-in GPS,
handles some very job-specific tasks for me, and syncs all that with
my desktop software, so I can do my taxes more easily at the end of
the year.

iPhone is limited to Ajax development, which is not powerful enough
to solve my tasks. Ah well... .
