The AppleiPhone has been in user’s hands for about 8 months now. Hard evidence is appearing that the iPhone is possibly the bestmobile experience currently available.
Googlereports that 50x more search requests coming from Apple iPhones than any other mobile handset. This is dramatic evidence that searching and surfing the web really works on the iPhone.
EETimes reports about a panel discussion at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona has been apparently been also stumped at the success of the iPhone.
Apparently a study said that 77% of iPhone owners are "very satisfied".
In the comments of the EETimes article are some very true statements that the Apple competition is not understanding what Apple is doing and why they rule the portablemusicplayer market and why they could eventually rule the mobile device space.
The key is not individual features but the sum of it all and how they create an experience for the user.
When Apple puts some 3G into the iPhone and makes it maybe a bit smaller I will become a "very satisfied" iPhone owner too.
iPhone available on the Apple Store.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
