The iPhone is a nice device. The new one, complete with video calling, iOS4, multitasking, and many other features, is even nicer.
So what? Some critics say. This other phone already has X feature.....Apple is a walled garden....network coverage is a F****. And they would be right.
But then I remember something that someone said about Apple, "It's Apple's business model to to come up with something 6 months from now that will make you hate what you love today."
To be fair, that's every product company's business model. Apple just does it really well.
But the point there being, that objectively speaking, the iPhone is great, but nowhere near as indespensible as one might think. If you have one, exploit it's awesomeness and make your money's worth. If you don't have one and want one, go get one. If you hate it with a passion, save your money and your breath.
After all, we're only talking about a phone.
