“It’s been the better part of a year since the debut of Apple’s iPhone—enough time for most of the early hype to die down, for the most egregious bugs to get fixed, and for users to learn to deal with the foibles of a new mobile platform—or learn that said foibles are too much to take,” Wendy Sheehan Donnell and Joel Santo Domingo report for PC Magazine.
“Here at PC Magazine, we’ve got iPhone users on both sides. Some are thrilled with the device, others want their $500 back. In the left corner, representing the iPhone fans, is Joel ‘Don’t Call Me a Fanboy’ Santo Domingo, PC Mag’s lead desktop PC analyst. In the right corner, representing those with buyer’s remorse, is Wendy ‘Apple KoolAid Made Me Sick’ Sheehan Donnell, senior editor of our Consumer Electronics team,” PC Mag’s intrepid tri-named and now also nicknamed reporters write.
Full article, in which Wendy complains about AT&T phone service quality, AT&T EDGE speed, iPhone’s speaker and mic quality, the virtual keyboard, and the rest of the usual list of competitors’ talking points while Joel gallantly defends iPhone’s honor, here.

As we’ve grown fond of saying, AT&T could cut the speed of EDGE in half today and you’d still have to pry our iPhones out of our cold dead hands.
