I agree.  But then again, I disagree.  My thinking of late is that i no longer want my phone to be my phone.  I want it to go away and as a replacement, I'd like to see an increased use of VOIP, hopefully through a device like the 770, when I want, and through a different device when I don't want.
I'd like to be able to forget my phone at home and still be able to make calls as if I hadn't, or switch phones with the ease of a username/password combo.  
The iPhone is a neat device, but I think it's going in the wrong direction.  I think (hope) that the direction for distant voice communication is over IP.  I guess time and network infrastructure will tell.  Still, the Nokia tablet is obviously already positioned to make this happen.
