At the Macworld Conference & Expo today, Apple finally revealed its new mobile handset, the iPhone.  It has a number of core features includind the iPod, digital camera, smartphone and widescreen display.

The new input technology is called “MultiTouch” – thus the phone contains only a single home button, according to MacWorld.  The device is expected to come to the US market in June of 2007.
