    Default 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.

    Nope, touchpads are limited to a couple of touches or so at once. The multi-touch thing is on-screen touch control over many areas simultaneously.
    I read the patent application some time back last year. >.>



    Ah this is a cool use of the multi-touch control:
    Open up a photo on the iPhone and resize them using two fingers, kinda like how you stretch dough.

    Woah Finally, Kudos to Apple,
    this is what I always wanted.

    Now what they need to improve is iTunes, I still don't like how iTunes works.

    wait, multi-touch was patented by apple?

    Yeah.
    No other touch screen put there recognizes more than a touch at a time. Heck, look at your ATM and DS.

    There is a voice in my head, telling me to get one of these ...
    That's very strange ...

    im thoroughly unimpressed... seems to be a reinvention of the wheel, i need to find out moar specs and features!!! btw lets just hope theyre more reliable than iPods... cuz whoooo.... +_+

    ... im just waiting for the part when they say it costs $500... then all your smiles will disappear.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
