After many months of waiting, assumptions, "secret" photos, the new Phone King is finally in the US stores. Is the iPhone the best phone around? Probably not. Is it the most beautiful? Can't say, tastes are different. Does it brings some stellar new technology? Not really, the multi-touch screen is well-known. However... However, iPhone has something that only Apple can create: charisma.

The iPhone has a clear, bright screen with great resolution. The buttons are fantasticly designed and interface itself is as intuitive as it can be. It it very easy to get used to it, and multi-touch screen looks natural after just few minutes. The user interface will clearly show you what can and what can't be done.
The mobile video is here for some years, however without much success because of tiny screens of mobile phones. Now, the iPhone's 3.5-inch screen will change that. It is much more convenient than a laptop, and the screen can't be compared to any one of the classic mobile phone. 'iScreen' is just too good. iPhone has a camera, although just 2-megapixels, and it is sure that we can expect some modification in later versions.
iPhone is a quad-band GSM phone, which means it will work in any country. The downside: we must wait for it to cross the ocean since it suppose to be on sale in Europe sometime before Christmas.
iPhone supporst email standards, works with Yahoo!, Gmail and, of course, .Mac Mail. It sports Safari web browser, it has Wi-Fi and EDGE connectivity, USB and can use the whole range of accessories designed for iPod (they share same 30-pin dock connector).
So, when you separate facts from the fiction, what's left? iPhone is amazing device, and Apple proves once again that it is The Inovative Company. If you are in the US go and get it. If you are not, find someone to get one and send it over the ocean. ■
