Judging by David Pogue's review, Apple's new "Jesus Phone" is almost as wonderful as Steve "Almighty" Jobs promised it would be. The biggest shortcoming the iPhone has would seem to be AT&T's decrepit mobile network rather than anything strictly to do with the phone itself, which seems to combine almost every function one can think of in that sleek but user-friendly we've all come to know and love Apple for. To say that it makes a whole slew of other portable devices seem obsolete would not be an overstatement.
Nokias, Ericssons and Samsungs be damned, this is the first time I've ever felt any excitement at the sight of a new mobile phone, which really tells you something: until now I've cared so little about the damn things that I've been using the same cludgy old brick for the last two years without ever feeling the urge to upgrade, but now, thanks to Apple, everything has changed. Which brings me to the crucial question: when exactly can those of us living in Europe expect to get our hands on this ultra-sexy item, and will we also have to sell our souls to the likes of Vodaphone and Orange to do so?
