    Now that the iPhone is out, we can finally truly know the capabilities of the browser and how it interacts with the multi-touch.

    So please, those of you who were able to purchase an iPhone, please share the knowledge.

    Here are a few questions to start it off:
    1. Have you noticed any CSS styling problems that don't match up with Safari 3?

    2. When interacting with drag-n-drop items on the web, does it work or does the browser think you are wanting to just scroll around?

    3. How smoothly does javascript animations run on the phone. Is it able to render such transitions as smoothly as the native UI?

    4. Does the browser scale 100% width web apps to the 320px and 480px widths when turning from portrait to landscape mode like we figured it would?

    The latter. It only seems to interpret drags as scrolls on the couple drag & drop pages I've tried.

    What happens when you click in a text field on a website? Does the keyboard slide up and you just start typing in the information into the actual text field, or does a fake input field appear?

    It switches to a special mode with keyboard entry vis-a-vis a sort-of enumerated list of text entry fields. You click "next" to step through the fields and "done" when you're finished.

    But it has a hard time recognizing some fields as actually being text entry fields.

    I'm not familiar with the earlier conversations. But scales such that the width is constant, and adjusts the height (it aligns on the top and extends or retracts downwards, so to speak).

    Drag and drop doesn't work,
    however when you want to scroll within a text box, scroll with 2 fingers!

    meh... it is ok, not as smooth as a computer but good.

    yes, if i understand your question correctly

    That's a bummer. It sounds like it kinda destroys the user experience created by the web designer a little.

    I totally understand why they do that though and it sounds like a nice feature.

    Hmmm. So even in portrait mode, it loads the page at 480px width?
