I love my iPhone. In my pocket at all times, in one device, I have constant unlimited internet access no matter where I am, an excellent MP3 player, a phone, movies and TV shows (on my iPod or from BBC iPlayer), a voice recorder, a guitar tuner, MSN, a usable camera (although I would really like to see the camera being improved...), my photo albums, and iTunes (meaning I can sample and download new music to my phone whenever I like). I've got a recipe book with 1000s of recipes for when I go shopping. I've got a step counter and calorie counter for exercising and dieting, and I've got an app that listens to and then identifies music so that I can identify cool songs I hear being played randomly in pubs or whatever (I've gotten so much use out of that app...) I've got BBC news and the Guardian news sites bookmarked on my homepage for train journeys. I've got live train updates in fact.
I've got a shiny little entertainment system, and personally to me that is worth a lot. I can see someone like my mum would not find it so useful, but I love mine. Also someone made a point earlier about how well-designed it is in terms of usability. That is very true. It's a very polished product.
