    I wouldn't say interesting, if anything this article could have been written with about 40-50 words, alas his narrow conclusion.
    However he doesn't get what the iPhone really is and probably never will.

    Filled with spelling errors and lack of logic. This is not a review but a poor attempt at spin.

    I've found that many phone (and other device) sites are run by people to whom English is a second language.

    So you have to take that into account when reading oddly formed phrases.

    OTOH, when native English-speaking people don't seem to know the difference between there/their/they're, and its/it's, and moot/mute, pique/peak, and so on... it just makes them look bad.

    What business does a non-native English speaker have writing articles in English?

    I speak some Japanese, but I would never try to write articles in Japanese.

    I hate the misuse of homophones, but don't confuse ignorance with apathy.

    Totally misses it, especially his analysis of what is or is not a smartphone.
    Do running applications natively on a phone contitute it a smartphone. hardly.

    am not sure what to call the iphone, except may a newton for the 21st century, or the first generation of a device resembling a star trek data PADD.

    Interesting note, if you've read the sttng tech manual , the PADD has some native applications but is meant to work in a teathered mode when aboard the starship, tying by photonic interface, to the library computer.

    The site that wrote that review is not a English site, it just has a english version. If you go to http://www.mobile-review.com/ you will see its in some other language until you click the English button at the top. Also note that at the end of the URL it says -en.shtml, the -en meaning thats the English version.
