Eyeing the iPhone?

Eyeing the iPhone?

The much anticipated iPhone from Apple was finally launched in the US on June29.It will pack a phone,audio/video player,a 2 mega pixel camera,internet capabilities and intelligent touch screen operation onto a single device.It will cost approximately $599 for the 8GB version and $499 for the 4GB sibling.
While US consumers had already got their hands on iPhone this june,Europe will have to wait till the end of the year.As for the indian launch date on contacting Apple india,all we recieved was a silence.

If you are planning to buy an iPhone during your next trip to US or order it from there,there could be a problem.The phone feature might not work at all in india, as Apple plans to launch the product with specific service providers in mind.

iPhone has a 3.5 inch multi-touch screen, that lets you operate the device with just you fingers.The iphone also features a QWERTY touch key board,where you type by tapping at the screen with your fingers.


The battery has enough juice for five hours of talk,video or browsing. Apple promises uo to 16 hours of audio playback which is on par with the top MP3 players.Videos will look good, thanks to 320X480 screen resolution.It also supports IMAP,POP3 e-mail and Yahoo Push email. With POP3 you can download mail and contacts from server on to your device,while IMAP will allow you to access your email directly from the server without having to download.

For indian users the biggest limiting factor as of now is that the phone function will work only with the service provider Apple has tied up with.So hold on till the India launch--when ever that happens.
