The Apple iPhone runs OS X  —  Capping literally years of speculation on perhaps the most intensely followed unconfirmed product in Apple's history — and that's saying a lot — the iPhone has been announced today.  Yeah, we said it: "iPhone," the name the entire free world …
Michael Gartenberg:

There is no support for Microsoft Office attachments.  —  3. Not clear how well Exchange will work with calendar and contacts  —  4. No 3G support.
Ryan Block / Engadget:

Some Hands-On Time With the iPhone  —  Today, I had meetings with with Steve Jobs and then Phil Schiller, Apple's director of worldwide marketing.  I basically played with the iPhone the entire hour.  —  Here are some of the things you can't tell without actually handling and using the iPhone:
Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
AppleTV: Xbox without the "X?"  —  Phil Waligora, who works at Microsoft, is watching Steve Jobs' keynote (I'm not, but am trying to check in here and there) and calls me out, wondering if I'll say the just announced AppleTV is innovative.  —  Oh, Phil, haven't you gotten the memo?

Nokia responds to Apple iPhone - 'it is a surprise that the iPhone is not 3G'  —  So, the Apple iPhone has finally been announced (read all about it here if you're still in the dark).  So what does this mean for existing mobile phone makers?  I just interviewed Nokia's vice president …
