    No, it could be a Decepticon and he wouldn't risk them getting sensitive information because of him.

    No. He's have a touch screen flat screen TV acting as a monitor to a tiny supercomputer each powered by giant solar panel batteries to last 1 year and charge in 1 minute.

    No, he wouldn't want to be enslaved to iTunes.

    Freedom is the right of all sentient beings after all.

    Some of us couldn't...

    Also, as long as he doesn't have his skin pimped to have dvd moniters on the outside of his cab, I'm a fan.

    Surely he'd carry an LG Optimus?

    Read it. It's just a damn title.

    Furthermore...
    Not on Optimus approving a phone or carrying it.

    In addition.
    The first link didn't have the whole article
    Second thing is the themes the article deals with involving how markets are affected by the smartphone. The opening doesn't go on about Transformers. It utilizes the "theme of transforming."

    These. Also, even if Optimus needed (or could even properly hold) a human cell phone, he's all about practicality, not fashion. It for sure wouldn't be an iPhone. Probably not even an Android or Windows phone either. Maybe a BlackBerry. More likely a cheap, durable phone that only makes calls. Tracks would be the iPhone user.

    All of that said, there was that weird reissue with the iPod dock as a trailer. :rolleyes:

    No - he has mechanical hands, wouldn't be able to use the touch screen

    I know that, I just wrote it was ironic that the transformers theme was on the same page.

    Optimus has big metal beer cans for fingers, he would break the little glass screen.

    Plus, he probably has half of those apps built in already.
