NY Times columnist David Pogue has loved the Apple iPhone from launch last year, but he has up a column today that argues the iPhone 2.0 software coming in June is truly transformational — Blackberry-damaging. The money quote:
You’re witnessing the birth of a third major computer platform: Windows, Mac OS X, iPhone.
For all but the David-Pogue-is-in-the-Apple-tank skeptics, that’s heady stuff. That said, and this may seem picayune in light of these Big Thoughts, but I don’t get why push email in the new iPhone software is limited to Outlook. Sure, it’s got big market share, but it’s an expensive and evil server-killing dinosaur. I want Gmail push please.
