Surprisingly, nothing was said about new Macs or Leopard. The keynote speech started at 17:00 GMT. Read on for the details.

Imagine what creative developers could do when they get their hands on the iPhone? Mobile Delicious Library, using the camera to scan barcodes, and sync to the computer over bluetooth. Sony must be caking themselves now; for too long their phone division has been shipping crippled handsets with broken bluetooth, second class media playback, third rate Internet, but first class interoperability.

and no 3G in a $600-with-contract phone is better than third rate internet? please.

at least sony phones have decent cameras (at least some of them...) and work as USB mass storage devices (extremely convenient).

Yeah but the mechanical reliability is low (I have already broken the little joystick on 2 SE phones) and the bluetooth plain sucks (usb? wires are so last century :-)
There is room for improvement here, maybe Apple has licked it.

Edit: BTW Sony can kiss the mp3-player phone market goodbye now. Walkman vs iPod ? No contest.
