Gadgets – Wow, the iPhone!

01092007b.jpgMan, ages ago, one of my first posts was about my trouble finding a phone that had the features I wanted. Today, Apple hit the nail on the head: the iPhone was released at MacWorld!

This phone is gadget heaven (specs courtesy of the folks over at Gizmodo):

  • Screen size: 3.5 inches
  • Screen resolution: 320 by 480 at 160 ppi
  • Input method: Multi-touch (that’s touchscreen, people!)
  • Operating system: OS X (you read that right. the Mac OSX on a PHONE!)
  • A fully-functioning iPod
  • Auto-rotate screen for video and web browsing
  • Storage: 4GB or 8GB
  • GSM: Quad-band (MHz: 850, 900, 1800, 1900)
  • Wireless data: Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) + EDGE + Bluetooth 2.0
  • Camera: 2.0 megapixels
  • Battery: Up to 5 hours Talk / Video / Browsing, Up to 16 hours Audio playback
  • Dimensions: 4.5 x 2.4 x 0.46 inches
  • Weight: 4.8 ounces / 135 grams

This is unbelievable… OK, I’m a gadget geek, but you have to admit it’s cool. Of course I have no idea when it’ll be available here in Canada… It comes out in June in the US exclusively on Cingular and will cost $499 (4GB) or $599 (8GB) on a two-year plan.
