Joining the iPhone media hysteria

June 27, 2007

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:

First, it’s David Pogue from the New York Times. Here’s the video version below. Kudos to the NY Times for having fun with the hysteria.

Plus, here’s some reviews from other sources.

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.

    Man, thanks for the video. I’ve been loving the iPhone since they started the commercials. I want one…probably too expensive right now. Also I can’t believe you can’t cut, copy and past text…what’s with that!?

    Hahaha… That sounds like fun. (Observing the commotion from the Orange Julius stand.) Well, it’s nice to see you’re back. How is it up in… where are you? Connecticut?

    Can’t afford it just now 😦 Will have to wait for it to go down in price. And for some things to be improved…

    I got into a bar fight last night, and I used my iPhone to crack this girl right over her head. My iPhone had my back the whole night and the screen didn’t break, so consider me a fan for life.

    I fought a man for the last iPhone at my local Apple store. He slapped me and I slapped him back. Then I headbutted him. Unfortunately the force of my headbutt knocked me out, so he won the battle. But I’ll get an iPhone one day.
