I absolutely LOVE my iPhone, we don't have a 3g network here in Iowa (AFAIK) but if the phone is significantly better I'll upgrade. I'm looking for thinner, bigger storage, better Edge/wifi speeds and just an overall better phone. If so I'll definitely upgrade.

I think external expansion is a no no with Apple.
firstly it doesn't allow them to tightly control the cards people will use, and that slow cards might give off a perception that it's the iphone/ipod that's slow, and therefore the product is less than optimal.
Also, If you can expand it, then how will they sell you a new one when you fill it? Seems that the conspicuous lack of an expansion port is a very deliberate choice, and if apple wanted to add one, they'd have done it a long long time ago.

I fear battery life will suffer if 3g is used. I know a couple of people with 3g phones and when they get online with the 3g goodness, the battery life is pretty poor.

But you never know with apple. Won't be cheap though, that's for sure ;/

I will buy one.
If Apple get their asses out of there and release the iPhone in Norway that is.

Even if they charge an insane amount for the handset in addition to extortionate monthly tarrifs?

The UK O2 16GB iPhone package is boarderline acceptable: £329 + £35/month for 18 months. £35 gives you more than enough minutes/txts plus practically unlimited data usage. I only take issue with the long contract period. 12 months would've been more reasonable.

I thought us Brits had it bad, but no. The Irish have really been screwed over by O2:
€499 for 16GB + €45/month for 18 months. Not too bad right? Here's the killer: 175 minutes, 100 texts and 1GB data.

I hope it won't be as bad in Norway.

Hopefully not!
But from what I know laws prohibit the iPhone to be available from/for only one operator. The operators can sell and subsidize phones locked to their network, but the phones should be available to sell "open" as well. To prevent monopoly.

I am still waiting!

Well one thing that will suck is there will probably be the monthly payment increase for 3G service. I dont think they will make any bigger than a 32gb model, probably 16 and 32.
