Is that an iPhone?

Well I got one of these 21th century gadgets, up to now I've never really been in to 'smartphones', I in general find them way to bulky, and way to expensive. Then on top of that there are phones which are based on Symbian, Microsoft Mobile OS, and then there is RIM with their BlackBerries (or what ever they call them these days), that all make it difficult to chose. In general I do not want anything to do with Microsoft, Symbian is not the greatest (in my humble opinion) , and RIM well.... no thank you.

So I was in the US for business anyway, and being a Mac geek I went in to the local [stag]Apple[/stag] store to have a look at this thing people have been talking about for the last year. And temptation came over me, and out I walked with a small box containing an iPhone.... (sometimes I do silly things).

But I have to say it's kind of cool, not the smallest thing on earth, but it kind of fit, the screen is excellent, and when I think about about it - yes there is the iPod Touch, which can the same, except that it's not a phone, there is the iPod Classic, which can play music and videos, but one cannot install applications (more on that later), and the screen is not really that great (I still use my 60GB iPod, as my music library cannot fit on neither the iPhone nor the iPod Thouch).

There are some miss haps, with the [stag]iPhone[/stag], there are no groups in the Address Book, no support for Flash in Safari Mobile, and no option for sending vCard (contacts). But when one look at the whole package one get a very neat device which can entertain one for a very long time.

Many people have have mentioned all of this before, and more will continue to do so, as it could look like the iPhone will do with mobile phones as the iPod did with portable music players.
