Is the iPhone a great mobile phone? No, not really. It is an average phone, but hardly a great one. It does happen to be a pretty darn impressive mobile computer, though, especially when it comes to the web and consuming multimedia content like music, movies, and photos.
The Apple iPhone has been rumored for over 4 years now but the waiting is over. Announced January 9, 2007 at the Mac World Expo, the iPhone is a cell phone, mobile web browser and iPod music player in one.
The iPhone offers a unique touch screen design and measures less than an inch thick. Other features of note include a 3.5-inch wide touchscreen display, a 2 megapixel camera, a 8GB or 16GB harddrive, Bluetooth 2.0, iTunes music player, WiFi, Quandband GSM + EDGE high-speed data, Mac OSX operating system and push email support.

Not only does it look great, but the usability puts even its good looks in the shade
The iPhone is one of the most beautifully designed technology products I have ever used. Not only does it look great, but the usability puts even its good looks in the shade. The fact that you need no stylus to use the iPhone, speaks volumes about its user interface.

The iPhone is revolutionary in some ways, but in others, it's just evolutionary
Apple has defintiely come up with a revolution in cell phone usability; the iPhone pioneers a whole new user interface that works very effectively. There are only a few buttons on the device bacause you don't need the other buttons. But the other features of the device are either evolutionary or somewat retrograde. The camera, for instance, is merely adequate, and the EDGE data connection is very slow and makes Web browsing a somewhat painful experience. The browser itself is great; the version of Safari on the iPhone does an excellent job of rendering pages. But it's not that huge a step a... Full review
So powerful, so elegant, and performs so many functions
You've got to hand it to Apple: Not only has the company orchestrated one of the most anticipated and overhyped product launches in gadget history, it has also delivered an instrument that, for the most part, lives up to its inflated expectations. The iPhone is a phone, a music and video player, a web browser, an email device, a portable photo album, and more. All of these functions are packaged in a device whose hardware and software are remarkably elegant, easy to use, and even fun to play with.
As a device, it's a genre-bender. Never before have American consumers had access to a p... Full review
