Joining the iPhone media hysteria
You can just feel the breeze of the iPhone embargo being lifted!!! The first reviews of the Holy Grail-like product scheduled for June 29 are coming in:
Plus, here’s some reviews from other sources.
- The iPhone is Breakthrough Handheld Computer [WSJ]
- Apple’s iPhone isn’t perfect, but it’s worthy of the hype [USA Today]
- At Last, the iPhone. [Newsweek]
You’re probably wondering if I’m going out to get one. Well, I haven’t decided yet, quite frankly. The prospect of hanging out at the mall’s Apple Store for 7 hours or so is not so intriguing to me.
I’ve been keeping an eye on both the positive and negative stories so far. Engadget has taken the cake so far in making me want to wait a bit to get an iPhone, with a roundup of what the device is lacking in features … stuff like copy and pasting text, ringtone downloads and more. Of course, these can likely be added in firmware upgrades.
So, I’m on the fence for now. As much as I’d LOVE to have one of this hot tamales, I might just have to sit back at the Orange Julius stand and watch the commotion unfold. With glee.
