I want one ..now.
This really is breakthrough packaging: bringing together MacOS X - including Safari on a phone! - with telecom and entertainment - and all for $499 or $599 depending on whether you want 4GB or 8GB of storage. The screen looks great, the touch interface is just what I wanted, and the clean design reflects the best of Apple.
If this thing doesn't become a bigger success than the iPod, then really, something's gone badly wrong with the world.
Way to go Apple!
But, you know, I can't help but wonder about two issues (especially given that my next three daily blogs, written last Sunday) look a little down on Apple):
First, is Apple Inc. still a computer company?
I think it is; in fact, I've said for sometime that the playphone would replace the PC for communications and entertainment as soon as someone made a good one - and this is probably a good one.
Second: what's the processor in the thing?
Apple's tech specs page for it says everything else, but not that.
