Apple iPhone - Cell Phones: Reviews

BELIEVE THE HYPE

Yes, actually, the iPhone is all that. First off, it's sexy. The aluminum-and-glass build gives a nice solid feel, the 3.5-inch touchscreen and Mac OS X make operation fast and intuitive (despite the typing learning curve), and it's a breeze on the Web. Thanks to its seamless integration with iTunes, it's second to none when it comes to ease of audio storage and playback. Right before each trip, we simply plugged it into our computers, quickly loaded new music and videos, and hit the road. But it's too bad our favorite noise-canceling cans wouldn't plug into the recessed headphone jack without an adapter. 4.8 oz; 8 & 16GB flash; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, quad band; apple.com
