An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator…And we are calling it iPhone!

iPhone is combination of three tech icons at their class as is said –

iPhone combines three products — a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, maps, and searching — into one small and lightweight handheld device.

It has a revolutionary UI with a multi-touch display.

iPhone also introduces an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, letting you control everything with just your fingers. So it ushers in an era of software power and sophistication never before seen in a mobile device, completely redefining what you can do on a mobile phone. 

It is widescreen iPod. After all it has 3.5-inch wide-screen.










iPhone is a widescreen iPod with touch controls that lets you enjoy all your content — including music, audiobooks, videos, TV shows, and movies — on a beautiful 3.5-inch widescreen display. It also lets you sync your content from the iTunes library on your PC or Mac. And then you can access it all with just the touch of a finger.









It is a Revolutionary Phone with Gen-N(ext) features. Just touch a name/number to make or accept calls. Scroll through contacts with the movement of your fingers. Merge calls to create conference calls. An Industry first, Visual Voicemail and it has 2 megapixel camera.









iPhone is a revolutionary new mobile phone that allows you to make a call by simply pointing your finger at a name or number in your address book, a favorites list, or a call log. It also automatically syncs all your contacts from a PC, Mac, or Internet service. And it lets you select and listen to voicemail messages in whatever order you want — just like email.










It it an internet communications device. You can receive rich HTML emails on iPhone. It works with any IMAP or POP3 email service. Loaded with Safari web-browser. Then it got Google Maps, Widgets and Wi-Fi + Edge networking. Yahoo will offer free push-IMAP email to iPhone customers.

iPhone features a rich HTML email client and Safari — the most advanced web browser ever on a portable device — which automatically syncs bookmarks from your PC or Mac. Safari also includes built-in Google and Yahoo! search. iPhone is fully multi-tasking, so you can read a web page while downloading your email in the background over Wi-Fi or EDGE.










And there is another dimension to iPhone – High Technology which includes Multi-Touch UI, intelligent QWERTY keyboard which automatically corrects mistakes as you type, intelligent sensors, OS X, quad-band GSM, Cingular’s EDGE network, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate).
