Early Reports: iPhone Dissapoints For Business Use

By James Falconer on 26 Jun 2007 10:34 am EDT

The iPhone Dissapoints?A number of trusted sources have mentioned to us and our friends that the iPhone is somewhat dissapointing... Especially for business purposes:

"It won't replace a BlackBerry. It's not good for text input. It's just not a business product."

Reports have shown that the keyboard was a let down. Keyboarding with two thumbs often registers multiple key strokes, resulting in a bunch of mistakes... And the text auto-correction only works well for simple words.

The touchscreen is also said to have required somewhat harder presses to register input.

I must say this is a bit dissapointing to hear as I had hoped for better things from the iPhone, but I'll wait to get my hands on one before I pass judgement!

Very interesting !! Am anxious to hear comments from new users. I know how important a keyboard is, i.e., who has time to check whether or not mistakes are being made as a message is being typed. It will probably be okay for short text messages though, but obviously not practical for sending out alot of e-mails.
