the iPhones iUpdate of the day

So it looks like anybody who is anybody got their iPhones already and have their reviews out. The big wigs were NYT, WSJ, USAtoday and Newsweek. None of the sites I thought would get em - got them. Strange, I was sure Engadget or Gizmodo would have gotten one.

Well, the reviewers ran down their expectations and what they actually got out of it. Here is a quick list of things the iPhone DOES NOT have. Any combination of these would be a deal breaker for me:

• 3G of Any Flavor
• A real keyboard
• Removable battery
• Expandable Storage
• Direct iTunes Music Store Access (Over Wi-Fi or EDGE)
• Songs as Ringtones
• Games
• Any flash support
• Instant Messaging
• Picture messages (MMS)
• Video recording
• Voice recognition or voice dialing
• Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Streaming (A2DP)
• One-size-fits-all headset jack (May have to buy an adapter for certain headphones)

iOuch that iBlows! Here are links to the reviews:
