It's gonna die ! ! !
The iPhone can't ...
Communicate with extra terrestrials (yet)
Make one more attractive to the opposite/same/trans sex
Increase the length of any appendages you may value
Make phone calls under water without protection
Introduce a force field around the owner
Protect the owner from biting insects ...
So, having got rid of those misapprehensions, can we just acknowledge that it is an object which, hype aside, moves on the mobile phone quite dramatically. We'll soon see that, despite the naysayers, other manufacturers will attempt to copy and may even surpass the iPhone's capabilities.
For me, a mere aspirant to ownership, it was summed up by a reporter who said something like, "Well, this XXX phone has a similar feature where you swipe across the screen ... only it doesn't work!"
The iPhone does!
