    What's your reasoning? Better at what? Some phones are going to be better at some things than others. Also it depends on what browser you use. The opera mini experience is different than the built-in browser.

    I really think (only opinion, no hard fact) that a device that is completely enclosed (i.e. no replaceable battery) and doesn't allow any third party tweaking like the iPhone is going to show its limitations before too much longer.

    From appearances, (since I have not done anything with iPhone beyond playing with a store demo) the iPhone looks nice. The majority of my phone usage is phone and email. I need a keypad that is responsive and reliable. I haven't heard enough about the iPhone's touch screen to hear if it is a solid interface or not.

    Like any other phone, I think its going to depend on your individual needs and preferences. Even if it was a perfect device and delivered everything it advertises flawlessly, I wouldn't buy it because it doesn't meet my needs.

    Not to mention the cost of ownership...

    What exactly are the 3rd party apps limitations?

    My girlfriend's brother bought one from apple and unlocked it.

    He put Mario Brothers on it. I thought he couldn't do that because it was a 3rd party app.

    Someone clear that up for me?

    There have been hacks done to allow unlocking and 3rd party apps. So this is possible until Apple fixes that with a firmware upgrade. But they will just find a way around that as well.

    so basically, it is better that we can just do it with no problems.

    i understand.

    my personal preference is though, that i hate to use unlocked phone. i want it branded by tmo and with tmo :]

    it just makes things easier for me...

    The advantage of the browser on the iphone is it gives the full webpage, isntead of a mobile view, but it is slow when not on wifi. I also like the ability to zoom in and out and it has a very smart feature to autozoom to sections, but again slow!

    Opera mini shows full html web pages. It also zooms & unzooms. Opera mini has autozoom.
