IMO, it's a fair review.

The iPhone could very well flop at launch as well as succeed. Many people are curious but how many will actually pull the trigger? How many regular people will break their current contract for a phone, excluding the gadget and Apple geeks?

It could go either way. However I agree with the final conclusion. By this time next year, the iPhone will soar either way.

LOL, not getting into it, thats for a different forum. I guess I could've just said "Fox is playing it safe with that comment, and I don't let their comments hold much water" That was a more appropriate way of saying it
Haha, it's okay, there was no argument sparked. However, that was my first impression as well- you are a mac using democrat/liberal. Although, in most polls, FOX News is the most balanced. So, who knows!

I can EASILY seeing it flop at first. Well as of now anyway, if Apple were to suddenly have a onslaught of details about the iPhone spec's and features and get some reviews out there....then more of the "common" people wont feel as they are buying it blind on faith in Apple, like a lot of people here are.

I think so too. The price may turn people off but when they see how amazing it is, they will say screw it im getting one.

I gotta agree with the article. (it's actually from ZDNet... Fox just republished the story.)

Apple will eventually sell more phones when folks with ending contracts switch over.

I don't think price will be too much of an issue, although it'll be less next year probably. Business users might have trouble with Exchange servers and coordinating with their existing environments. Others like myself that don't like Windows and Blackberry's will be thrilled with it.

But like any new product, it'll be streamlined, faster, stronger with future releases. The big question is how they'll handle activating phone service for existing numbers. New numbers are not an issue - they can be pre-assigned.

HA! I have to disagree with that. Price is solely the reason I will probably have to wait a week or so after, I don't have the extra money. Most people are gonna think that iPhone fan boys like us are complete retards for buying a $600 phone.

Interesting, I was wondering what the former President of Mexico, Vincente Fox had to say about the iPhone.
