Question, please. Can the Iphone do anything more than the most capable cells can do? If not, don't they cost more?

The only extra feature, is an increase in the chances of being mugged.

Arguably it has a better interface design, and the multi-touch screen is also fun to use. Can it do anything more?

I very much doubt it.

But it does do the things it does far more stylishly. And it would appear people are willing to pay a little bit more for good design and quality.

As long as i can text, phone, and play+store music on it, it's fine for me. My Sony Walkman phone is just fine thankyou very much.

HTC Touch

The enhanced touch is $NZ765 (Double RAM and ROM),
The touch dual is $NZ960

the iPhone is $NZ1100

My Sony W800i is enough for me though.

I must admit, the EyepHone looks cool as hell in the commercials. But ~$500 is crazy.
