-Songs as Ringtones - ???? Every media capable phone should have this

-Games - Eventually maybe? Or no support at all? That would be lame.

-Any flash support - Eventually, maybe? As long as people don't want it for YouTube. Their player sucks.

-Instant Messaging - This is a lame feature anyway

-Picture messages (MMS)- That's lame. It's a fairly useful feature.

-Video recording - Not a huge loss, but a fun feature that I use surprisingly often on my phone.

-Direct iTunes Music Store Access (Over Wi-Fi or EDGE) - That doesn't make any sense. Lame.

-Voice recognition or voice dialing - Even the cheapest phones have this. Lame.

-Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Streaming - I thought music was a huge part of this phone...? Lame

-One-size-fits-all headset jack (May have to buy an adapter for certain headphones) - See above answer.

Stuff we already knew it didn't have

-3G (EV-DO/HSDPA) - I don't use the internet at all on my phone, so it could have the slowest access possible, and I'd be fine with that.

-GPS - Even really cheap phones have this. Lame.

-A real keyboard - So what? Touch screen is fine. Have you tried to use a Q's keyboard? They suck.

-Removable battery - That's kind of dumb.

-Expandable Storage - An SD slot of some sort would have been nice. Not for more room, but for transferring stuff from other sources (other phones, computers)
