IN TOUCH : iPhone roadtest

Apple’s iPhone hasn’t been released here (and no date is set) but Management spent day test-driving one – and we are impressed. You could easily waste lot of time tinkering as, with touch of finger on the screen, you browse the web, listen to music, take pictures, look at satellite maps and get directions.
Some issues surround its effectiveness as an executive tool here just yet: the GSM phone roams locally on the Vodafone network – so you pay international calling costs; and the phone is not 3G so speed is only that of dial up.
Jens Mueller, chairman of local Apple importer toshcomputers.com (which has brought the units to our shores), says the iPhone sets new standards for display, quality and ease of use and will be “greatly enhanced in its suitability for today’s managers, when third-party smart phone software applications become available”.
