Apple iPhone: Are you impressed?


I’ve written about my first impressions on the Apple iPhone here. I’m actually surprised that Apple didn’t bother to change the name in their usual last minute spasm nomenclature spasm.

Well, since we’re in the Asian market – I predict an influx of this phone way before 2008. The tricky thing would be to unlock this phone since Apple will be shipping this with Cingular. Of course, we’re bound to see a lot of open units in the relative future but its just a bit scary trying to “open line” an iPhone and voiding the warranty. If that beautiful screen makes contact with the pavement, tis will be a sad day for tech.

As for my humble opinion, unless this thing is given to me as a gift or offered at an extremely low price, I’m going to wait for Apple to release a second or third iteration (think Treo 650 or 680) given their bad track record for 1st generation products in the recent months.
