Dvorak: iPhone 2 Months To Go & Sky Is Falling?
The phone/mp3 player created by the bright boys at Cupertino is still a few months shy of release, but sadly that doesn't stop people from poking holes in it. Perhaps a rephrase is in order, people with some agenda, say providing more back-up for an article they wrote here.
Here's a snippet from the Inq:
Almost all new hardware and software isn't in a 'ready for review' state 2 months prior to launch, which is why companies like Apple don't let legit review sites take an honest and hard look at a product until it's almost ready, at least not without making sure they know they're not looking at a final product. To judge something that is still in pre-release stage is poor form at best.
Take any so called specs and benches from sites that break information embargoes/NDAs, or otherwise 'leak' information with a grain of salt for the very reason that even if the information is genuine, it's like comparing a premature baby with one born on or about the due date; more often than not the earlier version isn't going to stack up nearly so well. So the sky isn't falling, wait a few more months and take a look at reviews of actual shipping products before making your own assessment.
