Apple iPhone sales to be disappointing?

Posted on Saturday, June 09 2007 @ 14:21:25 CEST by

PC Mag argues the sales of Apple's iPhone will be rather disappointing. They expect that at launch the device will sell extremely well but that the initial fever will wear off pretty quick.
Once the initial fever wears off, however, the bloom will really be off the rose, and sales will be disappointing (at least here in the U.S.). Here's why:

No buttons/keys: Lance thinks that the lack of buttons on the iPhone is no big deal. I beg to differ. Here in the U.S., we're a nation of button pushers, and we demand our tactile feedback. Soft buttons just don't cut it. Why? In part, it's because of our fat fingers. Blame it on McDonald's or KFC, but our stubby digits tend to mash more than one screen-based button at a time—particularly when compared with the slender appendages delicately dripping from many European and Asian palms. We're also less facile with our fingers. Basically, we're fat and uncoordinated, and that's why we need buttons. One of the iPhone's biggest competitors, the innovative Helio Ocean, has not one but two keypads. The iPhone, in contrast, has none.
Check out the full article for some more potential issues with the iPhone like the slow e-mail and messaging because the device doesn't have a keypad, slow Internet and poor battery life .
