iPhone is a tablet

Our morning staff meeting got a little disrupted by the MacRumorsLive stream of Apple iPhone updates. 

I've been predicting a Mac tablet for years. Here's the last time I predicted tablet specs. But, of course, Steve Jobs wouldn't call it a phone or a tablet....he wants a new category.

And yes, in my video interview with Roland yesterday, I said "no iPhone". I should have more clearly said "not a phone" -- because it really is a new category.

Both OS X and Safari Webkit are "platforms". What can we build on top?

The Google AND Yahoo partnership is amazing. Click to call. EDGE + Wifi.

Yeah, I'm's like a new age of computing + mobile has dawned.

Prediction on biggest complaints: availability, screen scratches/broken-ness, battery life
