Now that “the day” has come and gone, what do you have to say about the iPhone?
Of course, amongst the build-up of the iPhone’s technical details and rumored features, there has been a lot of folks condemning some of the iPhone’s shortcomings:
- no removable battery
- no memory slot
- lack of developer SDK
- no custom ringtones
Shortcomings aside, there are certainly reasons to have an iPhone; being the king of the gadget-pile is definitely one of them.
So, what now? Aside from some initial activation issues (to be expected with so many units going to the consumer at the same time), what about customer response now that the phone has been released to the masses?
Now for some feedback: Is the iPhone really living up to the hype? Did you buy one? If so, are you replacing an existing smartphone and what do you think of the iPhone so far?
Me? I’m heading off to eBay to find all the new listings for BlackBerry 8800’s and Treo 780’s.
