Opinions Side-By-Side In Our iPhone Review Matrix

Illustration for article titled Opinions Side-By-Side In Our iPhone Review Matrix



If you were too lazy to actually read the four iPhone reviews that came out last night, we've done the hard part and stuck the most salient tidbits into a chart, hoping to see both agreement and dissent among the elders: David Pogue of the New York Times, Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal, Ed Baig of USA Today and Steven Levy of Newsweek. (What happened to Lev Grossman at Time Magazine? He usually gets the Apple stuff early too.) Jump for our painstakingly created review matrix—it's fun to notice what words they all use, and when one totally disagrees with the rest.

@POPE,

I myself will probably never pay that much for a cell phone. That said, I also never expect to really get a virtual keypad, a multitouch web-viewing display, visual voicemail and so forth for the maximum of what I'm willing to pay for. It doesn't have every feature under the sun, but the device itself is still pretty sophisticated.
