I guess you've all seen the iPhone commercials by now. The focus on the cool UI is strong, but it makes me wonder how slick it really is. I don't doubt that the animations will be smooth, but I have my doubts about that photo browser, or more specifically, the speed with which it manages to load a dozen photos from disk. As far as I know, the iPhone uses flash memory, not a hard drive. Flash memory is slow. Noticably slow. As in: you can't load ten photos from it in the time it takes to display a flashy fade effect.
But I guess I shouldn't complain. This is what advertising is about. But it makes me wonder how much else is faked.
