Talk of the town Apple's revolutionary iPhone sports an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, allowing users to control everything with just their fingertips.

It combines three products - a phone, a wide-screen iPod with touch controls, and an Internet communication device - into one stylish handheld device. Users can enjoy all their iPod content on a 3.5-inch wide-screen display, and make a call by simply pointing their finger at a name or number in the address book, a favorites list, or a call log. Its SMS application features a predictive QWERTY soft keyboard that prevents and corrects mistakes, making it easier and more efficient to use than a small plastic keyboard. The iPhone also has a built-in 2-megapixel camera and a photo management application that enables users to view and e-mail pictures.

Users can sync their content - such as music, pictures, movies and contacts - from their computer with a USB cord. This handheld device gives users access to desktop-standard applications and software, including rich HTML e-mail, web browsing, and applications such as widgets, Apple Safari, calendar, notes, and address book. The iPhone uses quad-band GSM, the global standard for wireless communications, and also supports Cingular's EDGE network, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Its battery supports five hours of consecutive talk time and 16 hours of music playback. The iPhone comes in both 4GB and 8GB models, and will be available on the US market in June. Buyers beware: The first generation iPhone doesn't support the 3G network.

Available in China in 2008
4GB USD 499, 8GB USD 599
