I’m just not all that sold (as I can see others on this thread are not either). Jobs (of course) hyped it to the nth degree as something that would transform telecommunications as we know it, but I just don’t see it.
Sure, the touch interface is pretty cool and I’m sure there is some nice synergy of the hardware manufacturer also handling the software (same as with Apple and their computers).
However, while the features are cool, I really don’t see this as any kind of quantum leap. Other phones play music. Other phones do Internet and contacts and such. So maybe it does a bunch of those things in a more innovative way… which is nice… but this is not game changing technology.
Sooooo… someone tell me again why this is so revolutionary and worth that ridiculous price tag?
It would truly only be revolutionary if it cost no more than a PSP and that screen widened to at least 7".[/quote]
But then how would all of the Mac-addicts feel smug and superior if that happened? Because you obviously need to pay a lot more for something to be any good…
