That’s right, it’s here!!! Steve Jobs officially unveiled the iPhone today at the CES 2007. It comes equipped with Max OS X which essentially allow you to use the iPhone as a true all-purpose gadget that allows you to make calls, listen to music, and surf the net.
The iPhone features a 3.5-inch 480 x 320 touchscreen display with multi-touch support and a proximity sensor to turn off the sensor when it’s close to your face, 2 megapixel cam, 4GB or 8 GB of storage, Bluetooth with EDR and A2DP, WiFi that automatically engages when in range, and quadband GSM radio with EDGE. Perhaps most amazingly, though, it somehow runs OS X with support for Widgets, Google Maps, and Safari, and iTunes. A partnership with Yahoo will allow all iPhone customers to hook up with free push IMAP email.
The Apple iPhone will be available to the US in June, 2007, Europe in 4th Quarter, 2007, and Asia in 2008. Cingular will be exclusively offering the iPhone for $499 on a 2-year contract, and $599 for the 8GB model.
