It Came From My Cell Phone part 21
Yup, it's a cellphone picture of a cellphone.
A colleague in DC stood in line for over two hours yesterday to buy an iPhone and found himself in the middle of a shoot for a foreign documentary. After a few hours of playing with it, his only complaint was that the keyboard will take some getting used to. Meanwhile, out west I found myself wandering into an Apple Store to kill time before a screening of Ratatouille.
My verdict: the iPhone is super neat but talking into one isn't exactly comfortable. I tried a phone call and it felt like my face was pressed up against an iPod instead of a cellphone. Still, the interface looks fantastic and the various menus are easy and quick to navigate. The internet even moved along speedily, no doubt aided by the store's AirPorts. I could see buying one and never needing to look at the instruction book. It's that easy to use.
