iPhone Hands-on Video, Smartphone Round Robin 106

by Dieter Bohn Mon, 14 Dec 2009 1:00 pm EST

The Smartphone Round Robin officially begins... now! This week I'm taking a look at the iPhone - comparing it to webOS. I have a lot on my mind as I consider these two platforms: does it matter that webOS is behind on features and graphical capabilities? How important is true multitasking? Is the notifications system on webOS essential or just a gimmick? Which platform is more 'elegant?'

As a part of that conversation I've started a thread over at The iPhone Blog Forums to get feedback from iPhone users. Stay tuned for a thread in our own forums to help out Phil Nickinson of WMExperts.

For now, though, we have a video after the break for you and a few comparison photos as well. What you'll see is my latest hands-on with the iPhone and it's a discussion with Rene Ritchie of The iPhone Blog about the strengths and weaknesses of the iPhone platform as compared to webOS. I'll be spending the rest of the week thinking and working with the iPhone, chatting with you all, and generally getting ready for Friday's review. Stay tuned!
