If you had never seen all the videos and photos of the iPhone, and you just found it lying on someone's desk, you might not guess that it's a phone (let alone an iPod/web browser/alarm clock/stopwatch/etc.). You can't see any antenna, mouthpiece, earpiece – and, goodness knows, there are no number keys for dialing.
