Pedestrians use their cell phones as they passes a window display advertising Apple's iPhone at an Apple Computer store Monday, June 25, 2007, in downtown Chicago.

But skeptics wonder whether even the most innovative product could live up to the iPhone's lofty expectations - and whether the pre-launch anticipation has spiraled too far out of control. Scrutiny of the product is so great that any small disappointment could send the stock plunging, experts say. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)
