iPhone: The Killer App is Making Calls

Smartphonies and Crackberries, your days are numbered. This time, Apple Inc. got it right. I’m still salivating after seeing Steve Job’s Keynote. The cat is out of the bag: iPhone is here. Check out the video of the iPhone introduction.

I’ve
been waiting for a device like this for a long time now. Good thing
Apple chose Cingular/AT&T because GSM is the bomb! And I have a
Cingular/AT&T account already. Man, that brand is very confusing.
Anyway, I’ll probably wait until the early adopters tested the iPhone
out in the open. But I’ll head out to the nearest Apple Store in June
just to touch one and get over with my tech-fetish.

    It’s bigger than I like, but it is truly insane. Or should I say… Insanely Great™

    In most ways the iPhone exceeds my expectations, but I would have liked to see more memory and an additional megapixel in the camera, especially since the thing is pretty much the most expensive smart phone on the market

    I’ve had an AT&T/Cingular phone for over eight years now, though 5 of those were as an employee, and I’ve never once been under contract. If I can stomach the price, this will be the thing that gets me to finally sign a contract with them. Hopefully by June they’ll have rebranded themself to AT&T.

    I’m amazed that Cingular let Apple put wifi on it, but I guess they have quite a lot less clout with Apple than they do with the other phone makers.

    Dave,

    yeah, it’s uber expensive as far as mobile phone goes but then again you’re getting what you pay for. so i’ll probably tug on the coats of my Cingular/AT&T peeps to buy it for me so i can get the uber discount. that is if there would be a stock by the time they release it to the public, coz this baby will sell like pancakes! so i might end up getting the second generation units when the device is fully tested by geeky consumers already.

    as for Cingular, it’s still good decision on their part to give Apple the freedom. their exclusive contract with the iPhone will virtually get them millions of members in the coming years and would give them dominion over the telecom industry.

    non-GSM providers like Verizon and Sprint will feel the heat when the iPhone goes to market. YouTube, hand-held gaming, and social media will explode some more. and yes, it would also be a boom for the p0rn industry 😉
