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:
What's Missing From the iPhone  —  1. It's not extensible by third parties, only Apple.  The means at the moment no RSS readers, no Slingplayers.  —  2. There is no support for Microsoft Office attachments.  —  3. Not clear how well Exchange will work with calendar and contacts  —  4. No 3G support.

Apple's New Calling: The iPhone  —  If you've ever wondered how it works, this is how it works: I don't call Steve, Steve calls me.  Or more accurately, someone in Steve Jobs's office calls someone in my office—someone at a much higher pay grade —to say that he has something cool.

Live Macworld coverage  —  SAN FRANCISCO—Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs announced a set of new products at his keynote speech at Macworld Tuesday.  We covered his keynote from the floor, so check below for continuous updates as the news happened.  And click here to see photos from the keynote.
Ryan Block / Engadget:
The iPhone is not a smartphone  —  And the reality slowly sets in about what the iPhone is and is not.  Noted analyst and Engadget pal Michael Gartenberg stated that the iPhone is first party software ONLY — i.e. not a smartphone by conventional terms, being that a smartphone is a platform device that allows software to be installed.
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?
kottke.org:
The Apple iPhone  —  Apple's new iPhone looks like a thing of beauty.  Widescreen touch interface, no buttons, runs OS X, useful widgets, integrated email, Google Maps, Google/Yahoo search, visual voicemail (see who voicemail is from before you call), SMS, Wifi, etc. etc.  Oh, and it plays music.
Michael Arrington / TechCrunch:
Apple Announces iPhone, Stock Soars  —  Once again, Apple CEO Steve Jobs wowed the crowds like no one else can.  In his 9 am keynote at MacWorld in San Francisco this morning, Jobs announced the new iPhone cell phone.  From the description in appears to be a game changing device, and the public markets seem to agree.
Om Malik / GigaOM:
iPhone and the End of PC Era  —  Steve Jobs is a great storyteller.  If he were a fiction writer, he would stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Tom Clancy and John Grisham.  Mesmerizing in prose, master of the climax.  —  Today's performance at the Macworld Keynote was no different.
