So Apple announced the iPhone yesterday and I have to admit that it is a very tempting device. It’s on the high side in the price department weighing in at $500, but what you get for that $500 should instigate a huge market shift. Previously $500 would get you part PDA, part crappy phone, and that’s about it. With this device Apple is raising the bar. $500 now gets you a top notch MP3 player in the form of a video iPod, a web browser, email client, an untested phone, and a portable OS X platform. I can’t wait to see how this thing performs as it could really force phone manufacturers back to the drawing board.

Everyone knows that Apple sells sleek, sexy, and ultra hip devices. Up until know, the sleek phone market has belonged to Motorola with their RAZR and SLVR devices. I’m not shelling out for one of these, but maybe someone will give one to me. Hey, we can dream can’t we?
