Apple, the proud maker of the ever popular Ipod is pleased to announce their newest product, the Iphone. What is an Iphone? It is what Apple and AT&T is hoping is on or is going to be on the top of every techno lovers must have list.
It is a three in one device. It is a mobile phone. It is an Ipod. But it isn’t just any Ipod. It is a wide screen Ipod with touch screen control buttons. Finally, it is an internet device with many internet capabilities. It will let you view your email. It will let you browse the web and it will let you download maps (you may never be lost again). It also comes with a built in camera (of course, it would). It is a 2 megapizel. Plus, it is small and lightweight.
Why should anyone buy one? The top answer is because it is made by Apple and that will make it so popular. Look at the popularity their Ipods have gotten. Of course, if you are one of those people who don’t like to buy what’s popular, there is no need to read further. But if you are like most people and have to have all the latest techno products, keep reading. This one is sure to be a hit.
The wide screen is actually 3.5 inches wide and has a higher resolution level than any Ipod on the market. The buttons are all touch screen controlled.
The internet capabilities on this phone are supposed to be very high. You can check your Yahoo mail and it is compatible with office email. You can watch television shows and of course your videos.
As for the phone itself, the carrier is Cingular (the new AT &T). You also will have to sign up for a new two year contract. Prices and phone features will depend on what package you choose.
Now for the big question on everyone’s mind. How much will these new Iphones cost? For a 4 gigabyte Iphone you are looking at a price tag at $499. If you want a bigger and better model (8 GB) you are looking at $599.
At those costs who will be buying? Apple and AT&T are expecting many, many people will be buying these, possibly even standing in lines the night before waiting for the 2,000 retail stores and the 200 Apple Stores that will be carrying them. By the end of 2008, Apple estimates that they sell over 10 million of these Iphones.
Why do they believe that this product will have a frenzy of popularity? One reason is because of the popularity of their Ipods. The second reason is because back in March when they first announced the arrival of this new phone, the AT&T website got over a million responses.
The release date for the Iphone is suppose to be June 29, 2007. So, for all of you fans of the Ipod who wants to be the first in your neighborhood to have an Iphone, you better start saving your money now.
