Anyhow, the iPhone has a really revolutionary multi-touch screen that looks pretty simple and efficient (I can't wait to get my fingers on one!) and it runs Mac OS X so it's much much faster than current Symbian based "smartphones". That is why I really think it'll also be a great learning device (although the price will be quite high for some time). What else is there to say but: keep them coming Apple! Personally I can't wait for an improved iWork suite - hopefully with track changes and cross references ;)
