Obligatory iPhone post

Ah, the iPhone. Is it just me who thinks it's nothing more than a fairly bog-standard smart phone, but with incredibly sexy design job and thoroughly beautiful looking user interface?

Don't get me wrong - I'm completely caught up by the hype and I'd like one. I like some of the clever features, too - the SMS "conversation" idea is brilliant, as is the voicemail you can listen to in any order regardless of when you get them. But that's just an improvement on standard phone OS stuff, surely? Likewise the music and video - plenty of smart phones can do that, but perhaps not in such a slick way.

So, iPhone - exciting, sexy, cool - but hardly ground-breaking.
