Apple's iPhone is Mobile Markets worst nightmare

Apple's iPhone Messing with Mobile Market

News this morning of the Apple mobile phone is going to mess with the mobile market. Among other things, it is worth watching how mobile competitors' stocks perform on the news:

The gist of the Apple phone: It's a large-screen touch phone (no physical keypad) with 8.0 GB of storage, no stylus, and running Mac OS X. It's also quad-band GSM + EDGE phone, not 3G, but it does have WiFi.

The obvious immediate question will be battery life, of course, not to mention how many people will find a key-less phone something of a non-starter. How do you use such things by touch? Inquiring minds want to know. Looks like a June ship date and a $599 price, so this is definitely high-end stuff.
