“Walter S. Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal’s personal-technology columnist, picked up his review copy of the Apple iPhone this morning, and he gave his initial impressions of the much-anticipated gadget to college leaders during a speech at The Chronicle’s Presidents Forum,” Jeffrey R. Young reports for The Chronicle of Higher Education.
“‘I don’t know whether I’ll give it a good review or not,’ he said, noting that he will use the phone for the next couple of weeks before writing his review. ‘I can already see some things I don’t like about it. I see some other things that I do like a lot about it,'” Young reports.
Mossberg said a crucial question was how the iPhone’s touch-screen keyboard works.
Young reports, “‘They are claiming that through clever software they have figured out a way for this to be actually far more accurate and efficient than you think it will be, and I’m testing that proposition,’ he said. ‘And I can tell you that in the first hour it works a little better than I thought, but I’m still not sure it works as well as a regular keyboard — and the first hour is not a very fair test, so I’m going to keep going at it.'”
