Hey did you hear? Apple came out with a mobile phone. Of course you heard—the only way you could've avoided the iPhone hype machine was to move to Antarctica, shut yourself in an igloo, and avoid all contact with other humans. But in case you've just...

Great call quality; Visual Voicemail; gorgeous multitouch touchscreen; best iPod ever

No 3G; no Flash; no 3rd-party apps yet

The iPhone is far from the savior of mobile phones—third-party developers are restricted to simple AJAX web apps, firmware hacks are wiped out after each update, and the fixed battery has sparked litigation. But there’s also the innovative multitouch...

Apple iPhone Part V - The Verdict

 

We're here to tell you whether or not the iPhone is all it's cracked up to be or just another phone!!

The thing is though, the iPhone makes even the most mundane applications look good. The Bluetooth issue could be just a problem with this one piece, we can give it that. But the lack of some of the most basic of features in a device 'so politely'...

Apple iPhone Part 1 - Design And Interface

 

The iPhone is simply a sexy looking mobile with an easy-to-use interface.

Buttons at your Fingertips Let me just say, I truly am a big fan of this new fangled touch screen interface. It’s simply brilliant. It’s extremely easy to use and the large clear screen only accentuates the usage with decent sized icons and options....

Among those who queued up on June 29 to buy an iPhone were several of our editors; we have been putting it to the test ever since.

Innovative design Good mobile Web browser

Expensive No third-party non-Web apps (like Word)

So should you buy an iPhone? Sure, if you want to own a beautifully designed phone/Internet device/music player and are willing to put up with some occasionally exasperating problems. Everyone else, especially those who already rely on a PDA phone for...

The iPhone is the ultimate iPod and delivers an amazing Internet experience, but it's not the best smart phone.

Gorgeous 3.5-inch screen, Intuitive touch interface, Excellent Safari browser, Sharp camera, Superb Google Maps and YouTube apps

Slow browsing over EDGE network, Mediocre call quality, Touch keyboard not as good as physical QWERTY, Nonremovable battery, Nonstandard 3.5mm headphone jack

Imagine the future with us: It's a crisp mid-January morning in San Francisco. The year: 2008. Evening clouds and haze are beginning to burn off, promising a typically comfortable day by the bay. Inside the Moscone Center, Steve Jobs, dressed in his...

Despite some important missing features, a slow data network and call quality that doesn't always deliver, the Apple iPhone sets a new benchmark for an integrated mobile phone and MP3 player.

Stunning display, A sleek design, Innovative multitouch user interface, Superb Web surfing experience, Easy-to-use apps, Excellent music player

Variable call quality, Lacks some basic features including stereo Bluetooth and 3G, Integrated memory is stingy for an iPod, You have to sync the iPhone to manage music content

The Apple iPhone has a stunning display, a sleek design, and an innovative multitouch user interface. Its Safari browser makes for a superb Web surfing experience, and it offers easy-to-use apps. As an iPod, it shines.

The Apple iPhone has variable call quality and lacks some basic features found in many cell phones, including stereo Bluetooth support and 3G compatibility. Integrated memory is stingy for an iPod, and you have to sync the iPhone to manage music content.

Despite some important missing features, a slow data network, and call quality that doesn't always deliver, the Apple iPhone sets a new benchmark for an integrated cell phone and MP3 player.
