iPhone

There has been so much hype about this upcoming gizmo, check this dedicated iPhone blog where enthusiasts share their impressions of what the highly anticipated iPhone might look like..

Well, they have to waste time on Adobe CS no more,
because the real deal is here.

...Apple Computer Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs on Tuesday unveiled the iPhone, its new touch-screen mobile phone that will be able to play music, surf the Internet and take pictures, among other features.

Okay ..

The phone, to be available in June, will use new "multitouch" technology, Jobs added, calling the phone the "ultimate digital device." It will have a 3.5-inch diagonal screen and be 11.6 millimeters thick. Apple's iPod technology is built into the phone.

Among its features, Apple said that the phone will have a 2-megapixel camera, instant text-messaging capacity, sync with iTunes and use a visual voice-mail system, which will allow users to read a list of people who called.

I dont want to say that it sounds like a pimped out iPod with a GSM chip .... lets just wait and see.

UPDATE: check out some close-ups of the iPhone on Gizmodo

  • Some early concerns, once we get over the hype and the fabulous industrial design:
    * Doesn't look like the battery is removable.
    * Camera looks pretty throwaway.
    * Wonder how that screen will fare in our dusty humid climate.
    * Not to mention the average four foot drop.
    * No HDD - not yet a real replacement for the video iPod.
    * How useful is Google Maps in landmark-based Dubai?

    The design factor is the clincher though - Apple have never made an interface I didn't like.
