The iPhone is gaining traction as not only the must have gadget of the year, but also as an effective tool for mobile professionals. Rather than continue gushing about a device that I am forced to love, I will continue to post new stories when I find new ways to justify its value beyond a killer iPod with phone and Web functionality.
When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone at Macworld earlier this year he immediately justified its position as a smarter, revolutionary phone for those who wanted the next generation multimedia and communications experience without worry of whether or not it was a legitimate business tool. Indeed it’s revolutionary. It will inspire change in not only the mobile industry, but in anything that runs an OS. The iPhone changed the game.
As an iPhone user who was initially disappointed with the lack of certain basic capabilities in addition to the blaring disregard for slaves to the Exchange regime, I am now driven to prove that the iPhone will be the business tool for the discerning professional.
The iPhone is considered to be one of the most successful product launches in history. Although I’ve heard some incredibly, almost unbelievably gushing praise of the iPhone, I opted not to buy one while documenting the mania of iLines at the Palo Alto and San Francisco stores.
