Anyway, this next one is from Edward Baig over at USA Today.

Another review in from Walter Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal. A very detailed review, a must read. Here are some quotes from Walter:

“In the 16 years I have been reviewing technology, there has never been this much hype and high expectations”

“Most beautiful and radical smart phone I have ever tested”

“Keyboard issue is a non-issue”

“Best web browser I have ever seen on a handheld device”

“Big drawback is that it is only available on the AT&T”

Here is a video of Walter and an overview on his iPhone review.

We will post reviews as we get them in. Here is the first from the NY Times. They say :

“As it turns out, much of the hype and some of the criticisms are justified. The iPhone is revolutionary; it’s flawed. It’s substance; it’s style. It does things no phone has ever done before; it lacks features found even on the most basic phones.”
