    Picked it up yesterday. The only thing I don't like about it is the battery life. It is very short if you are messing with all the internet stuff and ipod features. The EDGE isn't as bad as I'd thought and I rarely use it due to the large amount of WiFi coverage around here. It runs as smooth as it looks on the commercials. The voice clarity is great. The camera is great. Its got little things like stopwatch, timer, and alarms that are useful. Youtube is fun to play with.

    All I need now is a nice cover. Any suggestions?

    I get around 8 hours battery life while watching movies or browsing the web with wifi. If i just am using the phone, i get around 2 days with normal use. I am pretty happy with those numbers. Its also close to the claimed battery life.

    What kind over cover are you looking for? Rubber skin? Belt holster? I have this from DLO:

    Its nice, but wish the flip was secured with magnets instead of velcro.

    Hmm, do you have the 8 gig?

    Im looking for more of a rubber case, i like to put it in my pocket, so no attachments on the back that would make it any fatter. Just so if I drop it, it won't instantly have a terrible gash....

    not off a building or anything, but I've dropped my ipod from the car seat to the asphalt or from my pocket to the driveway and it's fine. the skin the same stuff as the "invisible bra" for cars - and yeah, it's more for scratch protection, which I still worry about in the long run with the iphones.

    Plus those rubber cases always seem to get dust under them and gradually scratch up the sides/back.

    Best possible combination would probably be a skin underneath that rubber case if you're really concerned.

    well i had the clear acrylic case (shit) and i just picked up a belkin leather case that i slide the phone into. it protects the screen in the pocket and is less bulky than the clear one. it also has a belt clip for wearing while around the office when i dont want it in my slacks pocket.
