Apple iPhone - The Ultimate Geek Gadget?

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 10-Jan-2007 08:52

Well it's now been announced - the Apple iPhone (not be confused with the Linksys iPhone and the minor issue that Linksys own the TM to the word 'iPhone' in many countries!)

Is this going to be the ultimate must have gadget? Looking at the presentation and specs you really have to wonder whether Apple can do anything wrong. IMHO it's the first device that could be considered to be an iPod killer! As we all know however specs and glossy brochures don't cut it in the real world and we'll have to see how this product compares when it's available.

I find it hard to get excited over a GPRS phone in 2007...
