Apple Announces iPhone

By Pete | @kingpetey | 09 Jan 2007

This evening Apple have previewed the iPhone, a PDA like device that sports a multi touch screen, PC and Mac syncing capabilities and some amazing applications.

The phone will be available in the US from June priced at $499 for the 4gig and $599 for the 8gig. It should be in the UK by the forth quarter but it is unknown which network will carry it and at what price.

The phone has been rumoured for years however the hype has been growing over the past couple of months with several high profile characters stating their reputations on the announcement today.

Apple did not announce any information on their upcoming OSX 10.5 Leopard release or iLife/iWork 07. A full log of todays keynote speech can be found on engadget.

My contract runs out sometime in the forth quarter of this year so you can guess what I will be replacing my MDA Vario with!
