Apparently the iPhone that Apple sent to LAist to review got lost in the mail, but the NY Times got theirs and did a pretty cheesy video that shows off the good and bad parts about the coolest new phone since... well... ever.

Actually LAist wasn't supposed to get a free phone, but we can dream can't we?

Anyways - yes it's sad and weird that Apple has set it up so that you can only get phone service from AT&T, and the phone does not have a removable memory card in it for expansion, or a battery that you can easily replace once it stops recharging.

But the interface does seem to be what we hoped things would be like in 2007. Therefore, get ready to pay close to $700 for a telephone.
