I think I agree with your assessment of the iPhone after experiencing it myself and using my iPod Touch over Wifi for email. The interface does take some time getting used to. Exchange works flawlessly, however I have had a hard time figuring out how to turn the auto-suggest feature off and keeping it from changing what I type. This is particularly annoying because I frequently type English and German, so it tries to make my German words English. Also I don't like how you always have to slide your finger across to access the functions, even if you only have the device "off" for a minute or less. Oftentimes I turn the screen off but will turn it back on a minute or so later to check something, but you always have to slide your finger across the bottom to unlock it. On the Wing that was never an issue. I'm also having difficulty with the keypad. It seems my fingers are fatter than I had thought and so typing does not have the same comfort as on a real Qwerty keyboard. But I guess reduction of size has its downsides. Battery has also become an issue. Mine is always down to 20% by the evening under what I would call normal usage. At work we have already had people turn in their iPhone and gone back to the Blackberry Pearl. I would imagine we'll be hearing a lot of people doing that. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great device, just probably not for everyone.
