This column provides a synopsis of the iPhone and describes key features that have allowed it to redefine what it means to be a modern smart device. In particular, the description is put in the context of pervasive computing, and the author presents a review of his top five iPhone apps. These highlight how the App Store has allowed programmers to test and distribute many concepts originating from pervasive computing research.
