iPhone

First impressions, in no particular order:

  1. The device and OS are great.
  2. The network is not great(no surprise there).
  3. It pairs seamlessly with the Prius hands free system.
  4. It lacks MMS.
  5. The SIM is removable with a paper clip.
  6. It doesn’t seem to recognize and properly configure GAFYD accounts (at least it did not work with mine).
  7. Battery life is as claimed- great.
  8. Irony: the GSM radio interferes with my computer’s sound system. If the rebuttal to this is a suggestion that consumers need to understand RF shielding, it’s a miss (to be fair it’s an age-old issue).
  9. It represents a huge breakthrough, not in technology but in product. Industry pundits will rightfully suggest that a lot of the technologies in the iPhone have been around for a while. This is true, but Apple has artfully combined them, in conjunction with their own IP, to create something that will have a much more interesting legacy that a Wikipedia article.  I recommend that everyone (who reads this blog) spend some time playing with an iPhone.
