The iPhone is only a few weeks from being introduced and I was lucky enough to play with it some time ago. It was a dazzling, paradigm-busting product/service/experience. The new touch screen display really does blow you away.
But….. I did have trouble with the email function. It was the only thing that didn’t really work with the touch screen. I couldn’t figure out where to put my fingers (thumbs) comfortably. With my Treo, it’s obvious because there’s a keyboard. But not on this early beta version.
Apple has had time to fix iPhone and make email as natural as the music, phone, search and other functions. I’m hoping that when it goes on sale at the end of June, it’ll all be there.
