  1. From the description, it sounds like the device I’ve been waiting for. Now, for the UK price $599=£500 I wouldn’t doubt, despite the strong pound to dollar conversion. Still, it IS nice.

  2. Yeah, the pocket industry. While it is really slim (11mm deep) it is still huge. You’ll struggle to get that into most mobile phone pockets…

  3. I wonder how limiting this will be though.. although limiting is probably the wrong phrase. A fully “Apple” experience.

    PC, iTV, iPhone. You don’t need any other gadgets! (well, until the NEXT one comes along).

    Mind you, I think Apple Inc. will find competition in this arena a little stiffer than they have before. Sure they have a fully touchscreen phone but is what they are offering THAT radically different?

    The iPod DID revolutionise the MP3 player market, I’m not so sure the iPhone will do the same… yet.

    Let’s see what happens in 2009 once the early adopters have given it a thorough bashing and the next model is out.. THEN we’ll see if the iPhone is going to be a ‘dominant’ player in the market.

  4. I could foresee myself suffering from acute lower back pain if I was to carry that around in my pocket.

    I think I’ll be waiting for the much smaller, cheaper and better 2nd generation version, with 3G support, a better camera and twice as much storage.

    Still, it looks pretty.
