Hands-on with the iPhone

So I finally managed to get hands-on with the Apple iPhone in the Portland Apple Store while I'm out here for OSCON 2007.

I was getting ready to be disappointed, there has been so much hype it couldn't possibly live up to it, but I was actually quite taken with the iPhone. It feels good in your hand, and the multi-touch interface is blindingly obvious to use. Although I'm not a big fan of the keyboard, I was expecting to hate it, and I actually only mildly dislike it. So probably, with practice, I could be become a convert.

I guess I'm going to have to get one, but as a Brit, I've got a long wait...
