More details about the Apple iPhone – 21talks

More details about the Apple iPhone

Image for the article More details about the Apple iPhone

While the Apple shares are doing great after jumping by 7% to an all-time high of more than $93, there are tons of papers talking about the iPhone. (Google News referenced up to 2,300 articles, that’s even more than for the Saddam Hussein’s end.) For now, here are some details of the device to let rave or rants.

  • The iPod will cost $499 for the 4GB version and $599 for the 8GB hard drive.

  • It comes with a built-in accelerometer able to detect when the user rotate the device from portrait to landscape, to automatically change the contents of the display accordingly. This allows users to immediately see the entire width of a Web page, or a photo in its proper landscape aspect ratio.

  • Customers would have to wait at least six more months before it hits the stores. The iPhone will be available in the US in June 2007, Europe in late 2007, and the Asians will have to wait for at least a year. (India Times)

  • The iPhone doesn’t have a removable battery, although it would last up to five hours in active mode, and up to 16 hours of audio playback.

  • Its touchless screen is made of glass. Quite rare for a smartphone. (NY Times)

  • This phone will not work in Japan because it does not support the crucial international 3G band, known as 2100MHz WCDMA, or UMTS. Lack of 3G support also means less choices for roaming in Europe and other parts of Asia. (ZDNet blogs)
