Hmmm.. guess I should have adjusted the exposure a bit, anyway thanks to a friend in the XBox Live community I was able the fondle and molest an iPhone just now.
First impressions, well it's an Apple product alright, shiny, light, slim. No mistake there.
The software keyboard, well I don't know wheter it's because I'm not used to it or something else. Like I mentioned before you can't use your finger nails on the screen to tap the keys, you have to use your finger tips. And it's VERY likely for you to accidentally hit the wrong key if you hold your thumbs at an angle, the OS does some auto error correction by automatically changing illegible words to legal ones like say RWST to TEST. Wonder what happens if you tried to type a Malay SMS?
I was also right about the screen, since it doesn't work with gloves, I wonder how they expect people to use it in Winter? Headsets? Special gloves with Jello tips? Spit on the glove's finger tip before using?
Anyway in case you're wondering, nope.. the phone is still SIM Locked to AT&T so you can't use it with your own SIM card here even if you managed to buy one from the US.
Everything else was as I expected... the UI looks nice, but it's still not a phone for me. Heck.. not having 3G is excusable, but not being able to work as a modem? That's totally unexcusable!!
