Lots and lots has been written about the Apple iPhone. It's been critical and commercial success. An estimated 3 million units have been shipped so far and Apple's share price is at an all time high. Wired Magazine has just published a piece (rather grandly) entitled The Untold Story: How the iPhone blew up the wireless industry. Its well worth a read.
For those of you that don't have time (it is quite long) the piece basically says that Apple with its iPhone (which took 3 years and $150 million to develop) has forever changed the mobile-phone business, wresting power from carriers and giving it to handset manufacturers, developers, and to you and I the consumer.
On behalf of mobile dependant consumers everywhere we say thank you Apple
