The iPhone, which blends a mobile phone with the iPod music player
The above quote comes from bloomberg and it doesn’t make me want to rush out and buy one. I have an iPod and I have a phone (several infact). There are lot’s of devices out there that are both phones and music devices and cameras (and GPS) now.
The only way the device will sell big is because of the Apple brand, the same way that the iPod won in terms of MP3 players, many of which are/were better than the iPod.
This is nothing new I’m sure, the iPod just became a must have accessory, a lifestyle choice. Will the iPhone become the must have accessory..I don’t know, I think it might be too complicated for some users and that will put them off.
Only time will tell if the iPhone will be a success, I for one won’t be rushing out to buy one, but maybe if it can copy the success of the walkman branded phones from Sony Ericsson then maybe it will.
