Hello (Again and Again)

Friday 6 p.m. local time.

There have been other computers before the Macintosh ...

There have been other MP3 players before the iPod ...

There have been other mobile phones before the iPhone ...

The secret is software.

Hello iPhone, and good luck in changing the way we are used to using technical devices again!

But: Despite the hype that surrounds this new product, over here in good old Europe we're given the chance to wait for General Availability. That is, a second generation iPhone with UMTS support (3G) and - most important - the freedom of choice for the carrier I want. However cool the iPhone might be, I'm definitely not going to switch my carrier just because a phone manufacturer wants me to. That would be like having to use a certain internet provider with my iMac: Not acceptable.
