Digital Trends reviews Apple iPhone: ‘One of the most groundbreaking, fun to use gadgets in history’

“Nearly a million iPhone owners… already own one of the most groundbreaking, fun to use (and practically psychic) gadgets in the history of technology. Does this first generation iPhone ($499 USD for the 4GB version, $599 USD for the far more popular 8GB model), available exclusively from AT&T, have flaws? Absolutely: Otherwise, there’d be no reason for a next-generation model or for the periodic software and firmware upgrades that are sure to come. But really – who gives a flying flop? These flaws are smothered by a dual onslaught of clever innovation in terms of the device’s snazzy user interface and brilliantly-realized integration of physical design, OS and software – both behind and in front of its gleaming glass surface,” Stewart Wolpin reports for Digital Trends.

“iPhone’s innovations with the touchscreen and OS are more than the sum of its parts. Unlike any other mobile device, iPhone is flat out fun to use, regardless of how mundane the function,” Wolpin reports.

    But no – the future is the Table PC that costs $10,000 a pop.

  4. o please i can get a real camera AND a mp3 player AND a phone for less than 499 and guess what? then i dont have to carry all 3 with me every single place. its called choice. but only microsoft gives you freedom.

    who cares about the internet part, they make a little thing called computers for that. look them up, the sweet ones run a little thing called windows.

  5. It’s way too expensive, I mean, nobody’s going to buy one of these things; It’s not a business device. It’s got to be the most expensive phone ever… wait a sec! I’m not Steve Ballmer! Whew!

    Wow, that was scary.

  6. Losers. These morons just don’t get it, do they?

    No native Exchange support at a price point that is through the roof? And what about points to purchase content for the iPhone–what’s up with using currency, Apple?

    Ballmer is the true visionary, telling it like it is while having a finger on the pulse of IT departments and consumers alike. Jobs has a lot to learn.

    Your potential. Our passion.
