Kevin Rose of Digg talking about the iPhone in Dec '06

Kevin was at first reluctant to talk about the iPhone in December '06, because he was worried about putting his source at risk, but eventually he talked about some of the features of the iPhone, most of which turned out to be not true. Remember though, this happened in December '06, one month before the iPhone was released.

Here are some of the stuff he claimed back then.

  1. First he says the iPhone will work on most mobile networks - Wrong
  2. Two Batteries for the iPhone - one for the Phone, the other for the music player - Wrong
  3. Two memory capacities - 4 and 8 Gigs - Right
  4. Price - $249 and $449 - Kinda close for the $449 so Right
  5. Slide out keyboard - Wrong
  6. Touch Screen - Right
So he was right about the memory capacity and the Touch Screen. A score of 2 and a half out of 6 isn't bad.
