Apple iPhone 'combines usability and functionality'

Those recycling used mobiles to get their hands on the latest phones may be interested in the comments of one sector commentator who recently highlighted why the iPhone is so popular.
Tim Green, executive editor of Mobile Entertainment Magazine, said although the device often requires changing networks, registering with iTunes and a number of other "hurdles", the phone has still managed to win people over.
He added the user interface of the Apple iPhone 3G was "revolutionary" and capable of recreating the desktop experience for web browsing, noting the App Store is another facility that has also "really pushed it over the edge".
"It's that magic combination of a device that has a great user experience and utilities that have opened people eyes to what a mobile can do," he concluded.
Last month, Apple reported fiscal third quarter figures for 2009 that seemed to buck the trend of other firms being affected by the recession. Industry analysts have suggested the iPhone has played a big part in this.
