Pros: Great interface and the App Store is amazing

Cons: Battery life has me worried

I'm sure I'll update this review after some additional use, but here are my impressions after a weekend with the phone.

 

This is my first iPhone.  I was holding out for 3G and it seems like the wait was worth it.  The data speeds are great and it excels as an internet browsing device.  The user interface is intuitive, I haven't had a single issue yet.

 

The App Store is what is going to really going to set this phone apart from the competition.  Even at launch, there are quite a few good quality applications and I'm sure it's only going to get better.  It's so simple to search/browse for applications on the phone and then download/install them.  With the integrated GPS, the possibilities are endless.

 

My only concern, and it's a major one, is battery life.  I realize I was overusing the phone since it was my new toy, but I was able to go through 80% of the battery's charge in half a day.  I really don't think I was overusing it either.  I'll update my review once I settle into more 'normal' daily use and the battery has been through some charge cycles...but this could be the difference between a good and a great phone.  Carrying around a USB charger cable is a terrible solution.  I just need it to last a full day on a single charge.

 

I think you'll have a hard time finding any other phone with similar capabilities.  Some of the better Windows Mobile devices may come close...but I think it's in a league of its own...until Android phones begin to ship.
