If you're a big-name hack in New York, you've probably been strolling around with an iPhone for a couple of weeks now. Walt Mossberg and Kathering Boehret of the Wall Street Journal, and David Pogue of the New York Times are examples, and they've just published their reviews of Apple's first mobile phone.
AT&T Inc. and Apple Inc. on Tuesday said wireless service for the iPhone will range from $59.99 per month to $99.99 per month.
The highly anticipated gadget retails for $499 for a model with 4 gigabytes of storage and $599 for one with 8 gigabytes. It's slated to go on sale at 6 p.m. local time Friday at Apple and AT&T retail stores as well as Apple's Web site.
MacScoop has reportedly got hold of the road map for OS X 10.5 Leopard's release. Apple has been cagey about the final release date, but did distribute the beta at WWDC, some copies of which have found their way onto torrents.
The rumored road map reveals that a new Leopard build will be seeded in early July, although only Select and Premium ADC members will receive the new build.
In addition to the security updates we already reported, both the Mac OS X and Windows versions of Safari Beta 3.0.2 deliver a wide range of bug fixes. The Windows version of Safari 3.0.2 fixes several issues affecting text handling plus others that relate specifically to non-English versions of Windows (eg, unexpected quits when typing into text fields).
There's hype. There's hysteria. And there's history. The hype around Apple Inc.'s upcoming iPhone is abundantly clear. So is the hysteria. But how the iPhone will leave its historical mark after Friday's launch is to be seen.
Will the gadget , which triples as a cell phone, iPod media player and a wireless Web device , be as "revolutionary" as Apple CEO Steve Jobs has claimed?
