First iPhone reviews are in

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 5:55 PM

The iPhone is no flop.

So far.

Engadget did a good job giving the top-level highlights of the three reviews that came out today on the iPhone.

On a very exclusive basis, Apple slipped three devices to three personal technology reviewers:

David Pogue of The New York Times.

-- Says its "revolutionary; it's flawed. It's substance; it's style. It does things no phone has ever done before; it lacks features found even on the most basic phones."

Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal.

-- Says "despite some flaws and feature omissions, the iPhone is, on balance, a beautiful and breakthrough handheld computer."

Edward C. Baig of USA Today.

-- Says, "Apple has delivered a prodigy -- a slender fashion phone, a slick iPod and an Internet experience unlike any before it on a mobile handset. Still, iPhone isn't perfect, or even the most ideal smartphone for every user.
