So, the iPhone hype is bigger than ever with just 2,5 days to go (and with the first in line already in Apple stores) and now the first real reviews are coming out. And surprise, surprise, the iPhone is not all that perfect!
Check out Wall Street Journal's columnist Walter Mossberg video review:
The "keyboard review" is quite strange: in 3 days you'll want to throw the iPhone through the window, but in 5 days you'll love it?? I find that quite disturbing.
The network coverage and the internet speed might actually be the weaknesses of this beautiful smart phone, but it's hard to believe that such simple things like assigning mp3s to ringtones and copy/paste text are not allowed. Also, flash-based animations in the browser are not supported, which means that YouTube or any other flash-based website won't work on the iPhone.
In spite of these somewhat annoying disadvantages, most reviewers are pleased with the new Apple's gadget. Read some more reviews:
- Read - David Pogue "The iPhone matches most of its hype"
- Read - Walter S. Mossberg and Katherine Boehret "Despite its network limitations, the iPhone is a whole new experience and a pleasure to use"
- Read - Edward C. Baig "Apple's iPhone isn't perfect, but it's worthy of the hype"
- Read - Steven Levy "one of the most hyped consumer products ever comes pretty close to justifying the bombast."
