David Pogue, the New York Times: The iPhone Matches Most of Its Hype.

Steven Levy, Newsweek: At Last, the iPhone.

Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal: Testing Out the iPhone.

Edward C. Baig, USA Today: Apple’s iPhone isn’t perfect, but it’s worthy of the hype.

All reviews are positive on balance. The negatives mainly coalesce around AT&T and EDGE as well as getting used to the keyboard. The keyboard gets better, EDGE does not.

The most surprising thing to me was how they all said the iPhone seems virtually scratch-proof. They’ve all tossed in their pockets, knocked it with change and keys, and keep it unprotected during the duration of their tests. And virtually no marks. That’s impressive. Some funky new materials or treatments perhaps?

Come on Friday!!!
