Apple’s 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. 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.
Company chairman Steve Jobs, speaking at the company’s annual Macworld expo, called the iPhone, which will be available in June, a “revolutionary mobile phone” that will feature an iPod, phone and what he called an “Internet communicator.”
The phone, which runs the Mac OS X, will come in two models — a $499 version with 4 gigabytes of memory and a $599 one with 8 gigabytes.
