Our colleagues at iLounge have posted an exhaustive review of Apple’s new iPhone — both the 4GB and 8GB models. “Even before its June 29 release, Apple’s iPhone (US$499/4GB, $599/8GB) succeeded in capturing America’s national consciousness to a staggering extent: the company had never released a cell phone, its most notable pocket-sized product, iPod, struggled to sell 100,000 units over its first months on the market, and its collaboration with Motorola for ROKR, SLVR, and RAZR “iTunes phones” was widely received as disappointing,” notes iLounge. “Yet somehow, the very premise of iPhone — a mobile phone with museum-quality design, unusually straightforward telephone calling, and advanced Internet and iPod-style multimedia features — managed to draw hundreds of thousands of customers to attend launches at stores run by Apple and its U.S. partner, AT&T.”
