Appleâ€™s Steve Jobs did not disappoint in his keynote address today at the Macworld Conference & Expo. Unveiling the iPhone, among others, the crowd roared in thunderous applauses every time Jobs highlighted a feature of the sleek Apple device.
â€œAn iPod, a phone, and Internet mobile communicatorâ€¦ these are NOT three separate devices!â€ Steve Jobs said. â€œAnd we are calling it the iPhone. Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone. And here it is.â€
The iPhone looked very slim and well streamlined, with a very large screen. Apple did away with the keyboard altogether and instead uses the fingers on what Jobs calls a new Multi-Touch technology, iPhoneâ€™s enhanced version of the touch-screen.
Steve wowed the crowd as he enumerated the iPhoneâ€™s many advanced features, demonstrating to the attendees the phoneâ€™s capabilities in playing music, displaying photos, surfing Web pages including Google Maps, and of course its phone features. It runs OS X.
The iPhone is priced at $500 for the 4GB model, and $600 for an 8GB version. June 2007 is the target date for shipping.
