    I know people use copy and paste as a stab at the Iphone, for not having it, but I have never really been in a situation where I was out somewhere and thought, "Damn, I really wish I could paste that." MM support sounds awesome, but I already have +IM, which works really well... Native APP for that would be nice, though.

    The only thing that I wish the Iphone had had would have been video camera support. With technology the way it is and the ability to watch Youtube from the phone, it would have been nice to shoot a quick video of a birthday party or outing with friends and upload it to facebook or youtube on the go, or just simply have it on your phone.

    There's no way to utilize the Iphone's camera and make it support video with software, right?

    No, it's entirely possible, but it would not be as good as it could be as the iPhone lens is fixed focus, not auto-focus like some newer phones like the Google G1.

    At this point, I'd take a fixed focus, just to be able to shoot something at any moment.

    That was actually another major one for me... Ability to listen to music in Bluetooth.
