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

Yes, he did call the device itself revolutionary. And after watching all of the demos on:

http://www.apple.com/iphone/

I would have to say it certainly seems revolutionary. I have had many different "smart" phones, but this one really seems to be "smart."

Well, thought out. The features are not hidden underneath several layers of menus... and the web browser, it's about time that the mobile market gets a REAL browser! I always liked Mobile Opera but the Safari implementation looks like it finally makes mobile browsing worthwhile.

I don't have a Cingular plan, but when June rolls around, I certainly will then.

Good luck with that whizzy mobile browsing over "I can nearly beat out a modem on a good day" EDGE.

Hmm, EDGE may not always be that speedy but where I live hotspots are damn near everywhere. That seems to be the case most places I go. I would be using the WIFI much more often than EDGE. In that case, a really nice full featured browser, that actually fits in my pocket more than makes up for the EDGE network. At least in my opinion.
