It’s been rumored for months and yesterday, at MacWorld San Francisco, Steve Jobs finally unveiled the long-awaited Apple iPhone.
It combines three products in typical revolutionary Apple fashion:
1) An unbelievably easy-to-use mobile phone that lets you make calls by pointing your finger at a name or number in your address book;
2) A widescreen iPod with Apple’s intuitive touch controls, and
3) An equally breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, Web browsing, maps, and searching.
And you get all of this in one incredibly thin, small and lightweight iPod device.
The iPhone also utilizes an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, so you can control everything with just your fingers — no stylus or pointing device necessary.
According to SFGate.com, “Apple is partnering with Cingular exclusively to offer the phone and cell phone service, which will be available in June and cost between $499 and $599 per device. Apple has also teamed up with both Yahoo and Google to offer e-mail, mapping and Internet services on the phone.”
Not to forget the TV market, Apple also introduced the Apple TV, with a 40GB hard drive and WiFi to record up to 50 hours of TV and synch with your computer. It will sell for $299 and ship in February.
