I'm watching carefully, too. OTOH, I try to never buy the first release of anything. And while "the iPhone" has been out for years, the Verizon iPhone is a new beast.
So I'm watching, but I'll wait a few months to let them find and fix the first round of bugs and add enhancements. Then I'll evaluate against my current stupidphone+iPodTouch combo, which actually works quite well but is annoying because it requires two different charging schemes.
