OK, so here it is, the gadget that has been something of a Holy Grail for geeks the world over for the last god knows how many years. Years of false leads, speculation, gossip and some truly awful photoshop mock ups are finally over. Was it all worth it? Well, it’s a bit early for a final verdict, but the product shots haven’t exactly sent a shiver down my spine. It’s thin – very thin – at 11.6mm and it’s got a 3.5-inch screen. Plus you get all the fun of an iPod right there in your phone.
So what do you reckon? First impressions? *Slightly* disappointed that they didn’t come up with a more exciting name (everyone nicknamed it that, which makes it seem a bit old already) and it’s not entirely clear what Cisco is going to say about the whole thing.
Further specs: touchscreen display, 2 megapixel camera, 8GB of storage, Bluetooth, WiFi and, most exciting of all, OS X. The touchscreen disables automatically when it comes close to your face, which is the kind of whizzy technology that always impresses me.
