Apple’s NEW iPhone – Remember the ROKR

I’ve owned a ROKR since it was released and disliked it since the very first day I had it. Its software is buggy, the MP3 “iPod” like player is slow and misses the wheel, and the phone is simply mediocre on every other level.I find it sad that all of the media outlets are ignoring the fact that Apple pulled out the same dog and pony show a few years ago in September 2005 when they launched the ROKR with Motorola. All of the events were there – a big keynote by Steve Jobs with the Motorola CEO coming in (this time it was Cingular’s guy), a Cingular only party on the service front, and a phone no one was able to review until the consumers could actually buy it. The iPhone could very easily be as buggy and overpriced as the ROKR was – just be warned.-SC
