Is this the mother of all phones?

iPhone has been announced while I was over at CES. Looks like Apple met all the expectations and delivered a great product. But at the end it's a handheld with many features and simply the master of none. Prosumers everywhere already nagging, saying; how come no more memory, no tactile buttons, a better camera, 3G, etc? I'm sure it'll sell like hot cakes tho (heard the initial shipment will be 6mil units) Got to have one, for the sake of objective critisism.
