Apple iPhone Resource
On January 9, 2007, Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the most amazing handheld device the world has ever seen - the Apple iPhone. It is a cellular phone, iPod MP3 player, widescreen video iPod player, digital camera, 4GB or 8GB hard drive for storage, and portable computer enabled with WiFi all packed into one beautiful package.
Apple iPhone Accessories
The Apple iPhone has just been released and isn't going to begin shipping until June of 2007. Here is a list of accessories which I think will be introduced very soon!
Apple iPhone Cases
This is pretty much a given. Did you look at this thing?? It is oh so beautiful but it appears to be oh so fragile. I imagine that the iPhone touchscreen will be easily scratched, even by just putting it in your pocket. And don't even get me started about what would happen if you... dare I say it?... DROPPED YOUR BRAND NEW IPHONE???
Since the device also doubles as a wide-screen video iPod, you will want to listen to your mp3s or watch your videos. Shell out some moola for some sweet headphones.
Bluetooth Hands-Free Headset
Apparently today, Steve Jobs also released the Bluetooth headset add-on for your iPhone. It's pretty much vital to the success of every businessman on the move these days. Or not only just businessmen, but everyone!
Since the iPhone will be running Mac OS X, surely you will be able to get mini versions of iTunes and Safari... but what about Photoshop and Dreamweaver? Now that would be the ultimate handheld device! Be sure to keep a lookout for all the software and iPhone downloads that are sure to hit the net in the coming months.
A/C Adapters and Cell Phone Chargers
I had to pay 30 bucks to get an AC adapter for my iPod nano. I wanted to be able to charge it while I wasn't close to my laptop and USB cords. Hopefully the iPhone has something like that included in the hefty $499 pricetag.
The official Apple website claims that the battery for the iPhone should last 15 hours for audio, and around 5 hours for video. I'm curious to see how long it will last with just normal cell phone usage? Considering the entire thing runs on a video touchscreen interface, I imagine it will wear out pretty quickly compared to other "old-school" PDAs with the analog style keyboards. We'll be sure to keep an eye on this.
