The most beautiful toy, yet

Apple hits a home run. No, a grand slam. Actually, a five-run homer, the kind you’re not supposed to try to hit. If the phone pictured here actually works and the price point is anywhere near the competition and if they can get them made in any volume, it’s going to be the best-selling tech product ever. It makes the Razr and the Zune and the Treo and Blackberry look like lego toys.

UPDATE: It’s going to be $499 for the 4GB version and $599 for the 8GB version. It’s going to sell like hotcakes. Zero calorie hotcakes. Expects to ship June 2007. Jobs is claiming to aim for a 1% share of the phone market in 2008. Ten million phones. If they can get them made, they’ll sell them all.
