A revolution... against WAP?

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.

Neither of these browsers support Flash or JavaScript, but the browser on the PlayStation Portable does support both.

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.
