First reviews find iPhone more than a pretty face

Not that much more, though

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Reporters for the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have had their iPhones for two weeks now, and their first reviews cast a cautious optimism on Apple's new baby.

Unsurprisingly they both liked the interface, though text-entry using the on-screen keyboard came in for some criticism. Web browsing was good, but only where Wi-Fi was available; using Edge was considered akin to a dial-up modem and simply served to remind the reviewers about the lack of 3G capability.

Overall they liked it, and considered much of the hype to be justified, though the lack of Microsoft Exchange connectivity, and 3G networking, prevented it from being a perfect product.

Obviously El Reg was hoping to have early access to the latest revolution in mobile computing, but given our relationship with Apple that was never going to happen.®
