Today Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the new iPhone cell phone! The iPhone comes in 4 GB and 8 GB models and costs $499 and $599. It includes a 3.5 inch touchscreen with a virtual keyboard, a 2 megapixel camera, is WIFI enabled and runs OSX.
Especially the touchscreen functionality looks great—The image zoom could be influenced by this amazing multi touch demo what is by far the greatest touch screen experience i’ve ever seen. And aside from the design and the quality of the hardware i think the biggest benefit is that the phone runs OSX.
The iPhone looks like a great device and I’m sure it will easily stand out from the crowd—there are a lot of poorly designed cell phones with odd interfaces out there (btw. it will be the first device that nicely syncs with any apple). So if you don’t need Excel spreadsheets on the go the iPhone seems to be a good choice.
