Six Reasons Why AppleTV Is More Important Than iPhone
Steve Jobs did his MacWorld rollout today and announced AppleTV and the long anticipated iPhone. Right now the iPhone is getting all the headlines and buzz and I understand that. It’s really just plain cool and sure to trigger technolust in anyone with working frontal lobe functions.
Still, I think the bigger short term impact could be AppleTV - here’s six reasons why.
1) iPhone Is Just A Really Nice Cell Phone
I said really nice - but that’s all it is, 200 patents or not. I’ll even say it’s the Best Cell Phone Ever. The interface and the design are great in the way we’d expect from Apple 2007 but the functionality right now is more or less what you can do with a nice cellphone today. You can do email, surf the web, listen to MP3s, take pictures and even make phone calls on your phone today with a Blackjack or Q or Treo.
