Huh, it's not a milestone comic like 1000 was. 16:16, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm slightly disappointed honestly 16:22, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
Gotta wait for an actual round number, like 0b100000000000 16:38, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
Well it is the phone 2000 and he does mention in passing asking if 2000 is a good number to choose Zachweix (talk) 16:39, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
What am I waiting for more: 2018 or 2048? SilverMagpie (talk) 16:53, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
Waiting for 2018 personally. A comic that has looked at the calendar so many times should be able to see the comic number match the year. Lukeskylicker (talk) 17:36, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
I think it is pretty clearly a milestone comic. Previous xkcd Phones were timed near iPhone releases. This is very specifically for the 2000th comic. I think it no coincidence that the xkcd Phone 2000 was released for the 2000th one, and think it should be mentioned. 18:04, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

It might be worth noting, that mouse cursors were a thing on BlackBerry smartphones. 17:00, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

They actually still work on Android if you pair a mouse with the phone (at least, last I tried it). This was actually annoying - my Apple Magic Mouse prefers to pair to my Android Phone than to my Macbook Pro! Fluppeteer (talk) 17:59, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

I would buy it just to be able to plug a keyboard into the type A port. I hate the USB host-peripheral thing... My phone is more than capable of handling external devices. Linker (talk)

Don't you like USB OTG or type C adaptors? Bluetooth keyboards should actually work with many Android (or Windows Mobile) devices. Fluppeteer (talk) 17:59, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
