The Gear Live iPhone Review

Now that we’ve spent two weeks with the , we are now ready to hit you back with our in-depth review and impressions. Needless to say, generated a lot of hype with the iPhone, and many feared it would flop in the face of near impossible levels of pre-release fanaticism. Thankfully I am glad that after a full weeks usage I can attest: Apple actually pulled it off. They lived up to or exceeded every single promise they made about the iPhone.

As a preface, our impressions are quite favorable overall, but the iPhone does have a few flaws. Regardless of those flaws, we think this will be an industry-changing phone and will raise the bars for Microsoft, Symbian, Motorola, HTC, Samsung, and other competitors in the mobile marketplace. We expect them all to produce better phones featuring integration, ease of use, and stability all orders of magnitude ahead of what they now offer.

Early iPhone Review Roundup

Alright kids, we know it hurts, but Walt Mossberg, David Pogue, Steven Levy, and Edward Baig have all had their units for a couple of weeks now, and the embargoes were lifted earlier today. So what does all that mean? We have the first four iPhone reviews available for public consumption, and they all pretty much leave us with the same feeling - the iPhone is definitely a game changer, and is an amazing experience. However, the fact that it is on EDGE instead of 3G HSDPA sucks, and the software keyboard takes a few days to get used to. Of course, that is a very, very short summary. All in all though, Apple looks to have another winner on it’s hands. You can check out the reviews at the following links:

iPhone To Be Activated From Home Via iTunes

iPhone

just made public another first in the cell phone industry. This time, it is the fact that purchasers will actually self-activate their phones from home. Typically, when buying a cell phone from any carrier, you have to wait while they perform the unboxing for you and set everything up. This normally takes at least 20 minutes or so, and was the main worry of those looking to purchase an iPhone at launch. Now we know that all you need to do is have your cash, check, or credit card ready so that you can complete the purchase and go on your way. Once home, when you hook it up to your Mac or PC, iTunes pops up, and you give it all the required information necessary for activation - that being SSN, credit card number, personal details, etc. You must be running Mac OS X v10.4.10 or later (sorry Panther users!); Windows XP Home or Pro with Service Pack 2 or later; or Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Edition.

For all the details, head on over to the link below, where Apple shows off iPhone activation in a sleek video.

New iPhone Commercial: YouTube

Apple has revealed that is the twelfth application on the . We have all wondered out loud about the lack of balance shown on the iPhone’s Home screen, what with two rows of four icons, and a third row with only three. Then one of the iPhone commercials gave a peek that there would be twelve, but we just couldn’t see what it was. Now we know. In conjunction with releasing YouTube on Apple TV, the company made it know that a customized YouTube viewer application would ship on the iPhone as well. We must say, we were underwhelmed at first, since the iPhone has Safari and should thusly be able to view YouTube anyway - but when we saw the video of YouTube in action on the device, it looked very slick. Just one more thing to look forward to come June 29.

iphoneIf you’re still deciding whether to get ‘s when it debuts on June 29, you should make that decision soon. It seems demand will be incredibly high for the gadget—but supply will be comparatively low. The iPhone will only be sold at approximately 2000 AT&T locations and almost all Apple stores in the U.S., as well as their respective websites (there will be no online pre-orders). Sales reps are speculating the stores will receive a small amount of iPhones, possibly as few as 40, prompting rumors that Apple is deliberately creating a shortage too keep demand high. Stores are expecting huge crowds on the 29th, and word has it people have already started camping out to be amongst the first on line. After
seeing the commercials for the iPhone, we’re frothing at the mouth for one, until we remember the

insanely high

prices: $500 USD (4GB) and $600 USD (8GB).
