iPhone 3G – not just a pretty face

Okay, so cut all the hype and is the iPhone all it’s cracked up to be? Well, yes it is actually, at least as far as I am concerned.

Using push email and a Hosted Exchange service from Cobweb, the service is now a direct Blackberry rival and I for one, prefer the visual approach of a Mac-based interface over the functional approach of RIM.

Add all the really useful connected functions like Maps, Safari browser and the App Store and it really would seem you cannot beat it.

However, and this is a biggie, the battery life is abysmal. Leave the device on with push email and Wifi switched on and you definitely won’t get through a whole day without a recharge, if you make a few calls. It’s not good enough Apple!

Having said that, it’s still the most coveted gadget on the planet.
