Frankly, we’re getting a little tired of people lauding the iPhone as the greatest thing since lithium-ion batteries. While Google Gears gets top honors in ComputerWorld‘s Top 25 Most Innovative Products of 2007, Apple’s iPhone grabs the No. 2 spot in this list.
While David Pogue gives the iPhone’s Visual Voicemail top-billing, ComputerWorld mentions that the iPhone’s multi-touch touchscreen display as the 2nd most innovative feature of 2007. The iPhone’s multi-touch touchscreen isn’t just a snazzy touchscreen, it’s a capacitance touchscreen. That means you don’t have to fumble around with pressure-sensitive laminated layers of plastic like so many touchscreen devices out there.
But, we feel that the multi-touch display and the Visual Voicemail feature work together to give a user experience that surpasses anything that either feature can give on their own. It’s hard to pin down the singularly most impressive feature on the iPhone, but if we absolutely had to, we’d have to say that web-surfing on the hugely beautiful multi-touch disply (powered with the Mobile Safari browser – which is amazing) is the best thing that the iPhone can do.
