  5. That's awesome!

    What mobile companies are carrying it? And, of course, how much?

    I would've hated to have gotten an iPod for Christmas.

  6. don't forget the TV box, which routes streaming media from your computer to your TV. I just got my Treo last spring, so I don't think I can justify changing it yet, but I've never been able to figure out how to get streaming media from my mac to my TV without burning a disc ('cause I'm a techno-moron). . . so I'm diggin *that*. ($299).

  9. Yeah, it's cool, but am I the only one who thinks this thing looks GIANT? Like too big to slip in your pocket. Plus the price? $500 is a bit steep.

  10. A phone, an iPod and "Internet communicator." It has proximity sensors - it adjusts sound/light when pressed against the face. It automatically switches from between landscape and portrait views. It has "multi-touch" capability - you make a "pinching" motion against screen to zoom photos. 200+ patents. Truly revolutionary.

  11. Holy crap!! Revolutionary BUY BUY BUY BUY!!!

  12. Revolutionary? Really? In a couple of years it will be obsolete, so what's with all the excitement?

    I guess that if consumerism is the state religion of America, the iPhone = the coming of the messiah?

  13. so glad i bought stocks in apple last week.

  14. Dave - yes, in the technology world this product is revolutionary. Nothing to do with consumerism dude, it's called technology. Like that new fangled computer you are using...when it came out (IBM PC) it was revolutionary. Just like the first iPod. All of these products spawn many generations of new products. Behold, these revolutionary products only come out every few years in the tech world, many of us appreciate that.

    Now you can cynically get back to slitting your wrists.

  15. Best thing I ever did was buy Apple in 1992 when I was 22 years old. Still the best thing I ever did. Thank you Apple.

  16. Looks very pretty, very functional (which is insane for any kind of PDA device), but damn if everything from Apple isn't god-awful expensive. Probably best I don't even look at their products, because I could never afford them.

  19. I just signed away my first born to Verizon for two years and this baby runs on Cingular? Sucks.

    Is there a workaround?

  20. Great but $$$...

    Posted by: anon | Jan 9, 2007 5:38:09 PM

  21. I read the "revolutionary" comments. Uh, nope that's only cool, not revolutionary. Sorry, it's just bells and whistle improvements on a user interface. Very cool.

    Posted by: | Jan 9, 2007 6:50:44 PM

  22. Looks innovative and revolutionary to me (sometimes, as I've learned in grant-writing.. innovative and revolutionary can be putting pre-existing things together in new ways..)

    I don't care about the price, I'm drooling. Don't think I can wait till June...

    what am I to do!?!

  23. Revolutionary indeed! Like the cell phone, PC, original iPod...not many realized they were looking at a revolutionary application of existing technology at the time. iPhone is in that league I believe. Those enlightened industry analysts are almost unanimously declaring this revolutionary and to me, it's clear. This is a quantum leap in the world of portable devices, and a clear look into the future of things to come from everyone. Cell phones, PDA's, iPods, etc haven't changed much in years...the iPhone announced today will inspire significant changes in all of these devices and how we use them in the near future.

    I am definitely not an Apple fan boy, but I do realize the impact of what Apple has done here. Bravo.

  24. Ultimately, IT IS A PHONE. It's understandable that apple chose GSM for its international flexibility, but I will never get this BEAUTY until it's available with a different wireless carrier than Cingular. Did Apple miss the satisfaction/reliability surveys of wireless carriers? (Consumer Reports have Cingular consistently in the dumps in practically all major metropolitan areas.) Maybe this is the beginning of the end of the "APPLE EXPERIENCE".
