Me Want iPhone!

Steve Jobs. is. the. coolest. ever.

Like Matt Yglesias and half the known universe, I'm lusting after the new, gorgeous iPhone. Placing it on my Amazon wishlist as soon as it's available (June at the earliest) just in case someone wants to make this wonky muse very, very happy.

The market was apparently just as impressed. After the official announcement today, Apple's stock rose 8%, while competitors took a dive. At $499 for 4GB and $599 for 8GB, it's competitively priced, and leaves the Razrs, Zunes, Treos and LG Chocolates in the dust.

Ezra Klein wonders why Apple chose to market the iPhone exclusively with Cingular, but chances are Cingular agreed to heavily subsidize the cost of the phone for exclusive rights. Hopefully, Apple will market the iPhone more widely through other carriers later on.

You can watch Steve Jobs' keynote address and iPhone introduction here.

More about the unveiling from Engadget, which liveblogged Macworld.

More still from Boing Boing and the New York Times.
