Opinion – One week ago, Apple released its iPhone. In the past seven days I took the phone through the pace of the average phone user – without taking the device apart and without trying to figure out quickly I could drain the battery. The conclusion of the first week: The phone has serious flaws, but it is good enough to have changed the way I am using my cellphone and notebook.
Analyst Opinion - There are very few products that can capture the interest of people like the iPhone did, one of them was the iPod. Doing this is incredibly risky, as a result, but I believe it is better to try to create amazing products and have a few problems, than it is to just tread water and avoid the issues associated with this excitement.
