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 [1] 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.
