iPhone Reviewed

The Apple iPhone is due to go on sale this Friday, and it is great to hear someone review it from the standpoint of actually having used it. It is pricey, but it solves a lot of poor design issues that exist on pretty much all 'Smartphones'.



I'm a Sprint user, so no iPhone for me, but my hope is that as people adopt iPhone...the price will come down, the shortcoming will be quickly solved, and availability will hit other carriers....the availability on other carriers issue being the one that will change the slowest, if at all. Perhaps AT&T's cellular network will get better than it currently is.

Walter Mossberg, who carried the phone and tested it for two weeks, said that it was "certainly the most beautiful and the most radical 'smartphone', or handheld computer, that [he has] ever tested." His biggest problem with the phone is that AT&T is the only carrier.
