Apple finally reveals iPhone


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.



It will be interesting to see how the public responses to a mobile device without any physical buttons.  While the cost for Apple will be less (no keyboard), the response by the public on touching the screen will be interesting – I for one am bothered by the fingermarks I leave on my iPod.  The one big advantage is the size of the screen, coupled with the OSX software – this will be a compelling device for anything visual, particularly for browsing the Internet and watching videos.  The web companies (Google, Yahoo) must be drooling at this…
