Easily. Sorta.

I predict AT&T (the only phone company left, again) will F*** Apple 
royally by pricing the required 2 year contract into the stratosphere. 
Looks like data + voice now is about 90/month, and you know the iPhone 
plan will be even more with all those features, so you're looking at 
well over 3k in 2 years why the time you get all those extra little fees 
in there. That's insane.

So I could care less about the phone, it's an iBook replacement not a 
cellphone replacement. It's running OS X and has WiFi so it has or will 
have all the apps I use on my laptop. VoIP from the iPhone is a 
cellphone replacement on the other hand, and that's free. I have no need 
for a cell plan, and neither do you.

How Apple missed that one, who knows, but even they make mistakes :)

But it _is_ the iMac Nano, woohoo.

I don't think it's going to take people too long to figure this out, and 
certainly before June, people will be demanding the bare iPhone.
