Apple iphone

Last week, I talked about the Sony Ericsson’s T303 slider phone and today I am going to review the iphone. The iPhone is an multimedia cell phone created by Apple Inc. It was announced in January 2007. It has a multi-touch screen, a camera and a portable media player (iPod). It can be used to check e-mail browse web. It is a quad-band mobile phone that uses the GSM standard so it can also be used internationally.

iPhone’s battery is claimed to be capable of providing up to seven hours of video. The iPhone’s headphones are similar to those of an iPod. The photo album and web page browsing use multi-touch sensing. The iPhone has a version of the Safari web browser for internet viewing.

The iPhone includes a Visual Voicemail feature allowing users to view a list of current voicemail messages on-screen without having to call into their voicemail. The iPhone features a built in 2.0 megapixel camera but it does not support video recording. The iPhone interface lets the user move the displayed content by a touch and drag motion of the finger on its touch screen.

The iPhone ships with an application for accessing Google’s maps and searching for destinations. The user can then call the chosen destination. There is also another application to watch youtube videos. The iphone SDK will allow developers to develop applications for the iphone.
