Readers of TIME's November 5 edition, which will be on on US newsstands tomorrow November 2, will find that the iPhone is TIME Magazine's Invention of the Year 2007. Among the reasons cited are "It's touch-feely" and "It will make other phones better." The award also recognizes that the iPhone is not just a phone but a platform.
2. It's touchy-feely
3. It will make other phones better
4. It's not a phone, it's a platform
5. It is but the ghost of iPhones yet to come
"The iPhone has sold enough units - more than 1.4 million at press time - that it'll be around for a while, and with all that room to develop and its infinitely updatable, all-software interface, the iPhone is built to evolve. Look at the iPod of six years ago. That monochrome interface! That clunky touchwheel! It looks like something a caveman whittled from a piece of flint using another piece of flint. Now imagine something that's going to make the iPhone look that primitive. You'll have one in a few years. It'll be very cool. And it'll be even cheaper.
