Well, it seems impossible to offer the Apple iPhone any justice with a follow up post on BigMother. I don’t even want to include a photo of this ‘instant icon’. But since I did join the chorus of hopeful yet semi-mocking (too good to be true) bloggers last year I probably need to offer a brief comment. And it’s this:
If Apple delivers most of what they are promising without burning hardware, serial crashing, bad coverage or any other illness from the mobile technology family, they might very well be entering a new state as a company (only treatened by their own arrogance and insensitivity to the new rules of the web – see here). Beating every imaginative speculation on it’s features and design that have been flooding the web the last couple of years AND anchoring all the beauty, power and usability with ‘product-ability’ is the sign of true innovation power. I would seriously be feeling like an ass if I were the head of R&D in Motorola, Nokia or SonyEricsson.
I’m waiting impatiently and hope that European carriers can hit a meaningful deal with Apple fast. I can hardly think of a price that would keep me from getting one (unless I find out it’s made from uranium, mined with drills of blood diamonds carried by children slaves in mines owned weapon dealers by and powered by electricity created from burning only endangered trees from botanical gardens).
Watch the demo and join the pathetic crowd of powerless disciple.
