iPhone retail packaging

USA Today on Wednesday published an iPhone video on YouTube along with its print review of the new iPhone, offering a peek at the company's retail packaging for the iPhone. The reviewer notes that the "excruciating slow" -- as dubbed by David Pogue -- network may be faster in some cities, as the EDGE network actually operates at two different speeds across the US. Already game developers have promised several games, music add-ons, as well as walllpapers, cases, and possible Microsoft Exchange support. AT&T has limited sales to one iPhone per person and posted its store locator, while Apple also plans opening two new stores this weekend to help bolster sales and many are requiring some employees to spend the pre-launch night at the store.

    flash

    He said it doesn't do flash but quicktime supports flash & there are already games developed for the iPhone that use flash. Is he basing this on tests?

    re: flash

    Just because the iPhone supports QuickTime, that doesn't mean that all of the transports QuickTime supports will be included. Plus, QT only supports up to Flash 5. Flash is however at version 9 now, and the mobile version of Flash 9, called Flash Lite 3, will be out soon. So the iPhone has a lot of catching up to do on that front.

    youtube

    The iPhone works with youtube (even without having Flash support) because it is viewing the H.264 versions of movies - same as it does on Apple TV.

    Nice

    I really like the authentic touch with this, see all those smeary finger marks on the screen, I bet that took hours to get just right.

    H.264

    In the youtube interview, it appears that the flash questions isn't able to be answered by this fella.

    The 10,000 or so youtube videos partitioned by google are H.264 right? That's the answer i would have said if i was so lucky to have an iPhone.
