An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator.
Italicized comments are my own.
"Well today, we're introducing THREE revolutionary new products. The first one is a widescreen ipod with touch controls"
"The second is a revolutinoary new mobile phone."
"An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator.... these are NOT three separate devices!"
"And we are calling it iPhone!"
"The problem is really in the bottom 40% -- keyboards that are there whether you need them or not. They have control buttons that are fixed in plastic. Every app wants a different button. You can't add new buttons. How do you solve this problem? We solved this problem -- we solved it in computers 20 years ago. A bitmap screen that can display anything we want -- with a pointing device."
"So how are we going to take this to a mobile device? Get rid of all the buttons, and just make a giant screen. So how are we going to communicate? We're going to use a stylus -- no. Who wants a stylus?? Yuck!"
"So let's not use a stylus, we're going to use the best pointing device in the world -- our fingers. We have invented a new technology called multi-tuch. It works like magic, you don't need a stylus, far more accurate than any interface ever shipped, it ignores touches, mutli-finger gestures, and BOY have we patented it!
"We have been very lucky to have brought a few revolutionary user interfaces to the market -- the mouse, the click wheel, and now Multi-Touch. Each has made possible a revolutionary product, the Mac, the iPod, and now the iPhone. We're going to build on top of that with software. Software on mobile phones is like baby-software. Today we're going to show you a software breakthrough. Software that's 5-years ahead of what's on any other phone."
"iPhone runs OS X!"
(OS X on a phone, ooooh goody!)
My guess is that its graphics chip is an NVIDIA GEFORCE Go class GPU.
"We've also got some stuff you can't see -- 3 advanced sensors. It's got a proximity sensor, bring the iPhone to your ear and your display shuts off and toushccreen shuts down. Ambient light sensor -- adjusts brightness, saves power. Third thing is an accellerometer, it can tell whether you're in landscape and portraid. Let's turn it on."
OH MY GOD!
FANGASM ALERT! *FAINTS*
I shall hereby toss my 80GB iPod, PSP and RAZR V3x in the trash can.
