Smartphone Mashup TKO: Apple iPhone: Who doesn’t want one?

If you want a real treat, watch yesterday’s keynote.

Sir Steveness is so geeked up about this thing, and its easy to see why. As an Apple Inc (!) fan, I was blown away at the amount of thought and intense ID that went into this phone. As you can read from the multiple smartphone entries on this blog, I have been searching for the ultimate device…seems like Nirvana arrives in June!

My only outstanding questions are the following:

  1. Will there be pushmail services other than yahoo! mail?
  2. Why only EDGE capabilities? I love the wifi bit, but why not the 3g capabilites of HSDPA/UMTS?
  3. Is Cingular going to charge a specific monthly data fee for this device (outside the existing data plans)?

Its fair to say, that without holding it in my hand and playing with it, that this appears to be the answer to many of the problems that plague existing “Smartphones”.

I think I need to go back and rewrite the criteria for a good smartphone!
