Full of admiration for mobility

The iPhone has reportedly produced record profits for those clever people at Apple. This doesn't surprise me. Anyone who creates something that changes the world deserves to be paid, and paid handsomely. You could dismiss the iPhone as a fancy, overpriced phone. But that would be like sneering at a Model T Ford. Why drive one when you could take the horse and trap? The iPhone not only takes you from A to B in style, but it is also revolutionary. Not only does it make and receive phone calls, but you can also surf the internet, send and receive e-mails, listen to music and take and store photos, and I'm sure it has many other features that I have failed to discover.

Best of all, it is easy to use. Any fool can pick it up and within minutes can be carrying out any number of tasks. I know there are those who swear by their BlackBerrys. No doubt they also have things to recommend them. I like the fact that it's free for BlackBerry owners to communicate with other owners, but just the sight of those knobbly buttons makes them look unapproachable. Plus all the owners look like they belong at Davos.

In a straight fight, the iPhone would be my weapon of choice. You have to love a tool that makes you appear to be working when you are lounging on a beach listening to the Kings of Leon. Reader, I bought one. @Email:rwright@thenational.ae
