The Apple iPhone

So, finally all those rumours about an APPLE iPHONE is true after all? Wow! This is something! I wonder there hasnt been a HUGE hue and cry in the blogosphere on this. I mean, from the photographs I think its the best thing since sliced bread (or should I say a pager?). Look at what all you can do in the 8 GB space on the phone. And the phone is no bigger than an iPod. From the photos I think it may be slimmer than an iPod. It runs on OSX which naturally means great (simple GREAT!) graphics and like all other Apple products. This is has a fresh approach to usability. Man, wouldnt I love to work in a team like that? I guess I wont be able to afford it in India till they bring the price down to suite INR standards. But, My next phone is going to be iPhone 😎 .

Apple iPhone

Capping literally years of speculation on perhaps the most intensely followed unconfirmed product in Apple’s history — and that’s saying a lot — the iPhone has been announced today. Yeah, we said it: “iPhone,” the name the entire free world had all but unanimously christened it from the time it’d been nothing more than a twinkle in Stevie J’s eye (comments, Cisco?). Sweet, glorious specs of the 11.6 millimeter device (that’s frickin’ thin, by the way) include a 3.5-inch 480 x 320 touchscreen display with multi-touch support and a proximity sensor to turn off the sensor when it’s close to your face, 2 megapixel cam, 4GB or 8 GB of storage, Bluetooth with EDR and A2DP, WiFi that automatically engages when in range, and quadband GSM radio with EDGE. Perhaps most amazingly, though, it somehow runs OS X with support for Widgets, Google Maps, and Safari, and iTunes (of course) with CoverFlow out of the gate. A partnership with Yahoo will allow all iPhone customers to hook up with free push IMAP email. Apple quotes 5 hours of battery life for talk or video, with a full 16 hours in music mode — no word on standby time yet. In a twisted way, this is one rumor mill we’re almost sad to see grind to a halt; after all, when is the next time we’re going to have an opportunity to run this picture? The 4GB iPhone will go out the door in the US as a Cingular exclusive for $499 on a two-year contract, 8GB for $599. Ships Stateside in June, Europe in fourth quarter, Asia in 2008.

I guess its due to be launched in JUNE 2007. I wonder what other goodies are going to show up this year 🙄 .
