The New York Post, by way of Matt Drudge, has perhaps the first review of the iPhone online. It’s certainly the first one I’ve seen. Big shock: the guy doesn’t really like it. He does, but it’s one of those qualified, “it’s good, but…” reviews that you could’ve written yourself two months ago. The reviewer, a certain Glenn Fleishmann, calls it a “technical marvel,” but then cautions that you should wait for next year’s model.
The guy pans the screen size (it “has a very small screen compared to even the tiniest laptop”) even though he should be comparing the size to other cellphones and not laptops. Perhaps he should say it’s not as big as his TV?
The dude also slams the small storage capacity, its lack of 3G support and its high price.
But it’s a fine iPod, he says.
I guess the New York Post will hire just about anyone these days. What a useless review.
