David Pogue writes that the iPhone lives up to most of its hype. Summary: typing is so-so, browser good, network slow, email is great, and a modified Russian reversal joke: “On the iPhone, you don’t check your voice mail; it checks you”. (thx, david)
Update: Walt Mossberg has a much more in-depth review…he liked it less than Pogue, I think. Regarding the Microsoft Exchange incompatibility speculation: “It can also handle corporate email using Microsoft’s Exchange system, if your IT department cooperates by enabling a setting on the server.”
Update: Steven Levy weighs in with a review in Newsweek. I wonder how many review phones got sent out? I’m guessing less than 20.
