Paul Thurrott - "You need an iPhone"

a very good read from one the most hardcore Windows Users on the planet.

Paul Thurrott -- June 10, 2008

"I cannot stress this enough: You need to get an iPhone. Sooner rather
than later. With Apple dropping the entry price on this innovative
device to just $200, while fixing all of the major issues I described in
How Apple Can Fix the iPhone in 2008, there are precious few reasons to
ignore this seismic shift in mobile and cloud computing. I've said it
before and I'll say it again: The iPhone is a dramatically important
computing platform and one you should not ignore. Trust me, once you've
used an iPhone, that Blackberry or Windows Mobile device you're settling
on now will seem like ancient Soviet-era technology by comparison."

much more here....

Ah, everybody knows that Thurrott is just a "Maccie"...

Yebbut, what about that $800 long tail of service obligation...

Yebbut, what about the lack of APPS? Still NO APPS.

Still a fashion accessory, no more.

This great new iPhone still does not do MMS. WTF?

But... but... Steve Carroll wants me to defend the idea that the iPhone is
industry changing. Maybe if he read a thing or two about the device he
would understand.

Then again, speaking out of his other brain he claimed to agree me.
Someday, I hope, he learns to be consistent.

Sorry, but until they incorporate a phone book system, a calendar a task
manager, and a to do list which can synchronize with MS Outlook, moving it a
little more away from being a glorified toy and more towards business use,
much as I want one, I won't have one. I don't even begin to understand how
you can compare it to a Blackberry. The iPhone is still a device designed
for the non-professional user.

Coming in early July. Of this year. It was announced at the beginning of
this week.

If you'd done just a smidgen of homework....

I guess you haven't read about the Apple support for Microsoft
Exchange servers upcoming in version 2.0?

I'm not surprised since they're almost giving the thing away.

MMS is doomed in the long run. Why bother on a device that has a
high-speed connection to the wider Internet, and can send and receive
real e-mail with attachments?
