The worst and the goods about iPhone

Another 2.5 days to wait iPhone. The review of David Pouge from NY Times :

...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.

These are compilation based from CNet TV today :

Five Worst Things about iPhone
1.The price. It's quite expensive for typically new product compare with iPod or other smart phone.
2. Battery . You cannot take the battery out like the normal smartphone. Instead you've got to buy new one for replacement if your guarantee year is over.
3. Two years contract. Yups it's quite common now to lock the consumer up 1 year.
4. Small capacity : only available 4GB and 8GB.
5. No 3G : it will takes ages to browse

Five Reasons to buy iPhone
1. It's soooo pretty.
2. No button, just your fingers touching the screen
3. Basically it's an iPod.
4. Wi fi ...hmmm you can surfing while waiting someone in coffe shop
5. Third party applications (Safari allow to browse more app)

Anyway, I tried open TV ads on the Apple site using Safari. It crashed several times. I thought Safari not ready enough embedded into this 'cute' phone or I am not ready to get one. Gosh...still not convinced me at all. See people start quequing in NY Apple Store here
