Alex Iskold thinks that the iPhone is utterly revolutionary because it is a fight back against WAP.
Apparently, the last few years have disappeared completely. Nobody uses WAP - no, not at at all - anymore. I've got Opera Mini sitting on my phone and Blazer sitting on my Palm. Large chunks of the Web are available to mobile users already.
So, yes, the iPhone is important - but it's important for a different reason. The iPhone is the first phone that I've seen that has a really decent UI.
Anybody else got any "Americans not getting mobile" links? There must be a plethora of them because of the iPhone.
