iPhone finally announced

iPhone

Well its official, Apple has officially revealed the iPhone at Steve Job’s Keynote speech. Here’s what we know so far:

  • 11.6 millimeter thin
  • 3.5-inch 480 x 320 touchscreen display with multi-touch support and proximity sensor
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • 4GB or 8 GB flash storage
  • Bluetooth with EDR and A2DP
  • Built in Wifi
  • Quadband GSM /w EDGE connectivity

So far it looks like its every gadget freak’s dream (yours truly included). The only point I’m a bit surprised about is the fact that it only supports EDGE Connectivity instead of the much faster HSDPA connection that the newer smart phones are using. At a suggested retail 2 year contract price of $499 for the 4GB model and $599 for the 8GB model this could derail the iPhone for music lovers who don’t already have a larger capacity Ipod and a great HSDPA enabled smart phone.

Oh well. I can’t fault Apple since this thing has obviously been in development for a long time. Maybe the next one will come out at $299 with HSDPA. Then I might consider it.
