It has not yet been released in the UK but jealous rivals are already ganging up in a determined -- and almost certainly forlorn -- attempt to kill it off. Apple's iPhone, with its seductive mix of drop-dead gorgeous looks and irresistible features, is expected to become the must-have gift this Christmas for well-heeled lovers of fashionable gadgetry. However, Apple's competitors are not standing still. Rivals are frantically working on iPhone "killers" that will attempt to offer unbeatable combinations of style, features and price.

The quick review at the bottom of the article was misleading and forgot a few things about the iPhone. First, it implied that the iPhone can only browse the Web via WiFi. Of course, it can also do so via cellular EDGE networks. Second, it omitted some key capabilities: the pervasive multi-touch gestural interface, special access to Google maps and YouTube, superb photo and video capabilities, autosensing of orientation and adjusting the display to portrait or landscape modes accordingly, and more. The magic of the iPhone is in the integration and smooth integration of features in an easy-to-discover device. Hold one in your hand and use it! "Style" is just a bonus...
