MyTurn on the iPhone
The new iPhone seems to be universally loved by the people actually using it.
One of the raves is about how cool Google Maps is "You can get traffic!". Just for the record, that's a feature of Google maps, which I have on my Treo and Blackberry - it's not an iPhone exclusive.
The mainstream media seems to largely miss the boat, pointing out that other phones can make calls, provide internet access and play music. The point of the iPhone is the software that ties it all together. Elegance is cool and adds value.
I'm planning on waiting a few weeks before I dive in; I have to sort out how tied I am to Sprint and to see how much pain is involved in moving my phone number . And maybe I don't need to move my number.
One thing that's interesting is that the phone, while successful, is in sufficient supply. That must be frustrating to the people trying to make a quick buck. I was encouraged that the list of iPhones for sale included warnings to unsuspecting buyers that the iPhone was readily available. Maybe I should call one of those
losers entrepreneurs and offer them $200 less than list.
