"Apple lust."  "Apple sex."  Everyone (including me) got a little moist over the new iPhone.

Now, let’s step back and remember to note in six months:

  • How dramatically (or not) the landscape will have shifted
  • Whether or not these things fly off shelves
  • Whether or not Cingular sees any significant uptick in subscribers
  • Whether or not people who’ve already shelled out $300 for an iPod, become repeat purchasers by essentially replacing it with the iPhone
  • How much noise Cisco makes with this lawsuit.

Some contrarian views of the hype by Fred Wilson and Chris Kenton.
