I gotta be honest with you...I thought that guy's article was *hilarious*!
I still wouldn't take an E70 if you gave me one, because the screen on the iPhone is light years ahead of any competition for viewing video, which is important to me. And I thought the eye candy (scrolling, zooming, flipping, etc.) would quickly wear off for me, but it hasn't. It's still just so cool, and that adds to my user experience. But it's more than that...now that I'm comfortable with how to navigate around the iPhone, the "eye candy" makes the actual using of the phone part much easier than any other phone I've ever owned.
But Maddox make some undeniable points: no voice dialing, no video recording, no MMS, and the killer: no cut and paste.
If I was him, I too would take the rest of the day off and cut and paste just because I could. Ya gotta hand it to him, he is a hoot.
