Apple iPhone revealed

Apple Inc CEO Steve Jobs unveils its highly anticipated mobile phone named iPhone at MacWorld Expo 2007. It incorporates a 3.5" wide touchscreen with multi-touch capability, auto-rotation for screen orientation, built-in iPod features for music and videos, widget integration and running on the robust OSX architecture which are among its many features with over 200 patents filed for it.

MACWORLD SAN FRANCISCO—January 9, 2007—Apple® today introduced iPhone, combining three products—a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod® with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, searching and maps—into one small and lightweight handheld device. iPhone introduces an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, letting users control iPhone with just their fingers. iPhone also ushers in an era of software power and sophistication never before seen in a mobile device, which completely redefines what users can do on their mobile phones. “iPhone is a revolutionary and magical product that is literally five years ahead of any other mobile phone,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We are all born with the ultimate pointing device—our fingers—and iPhone uses them to create the most revolutionary user interface since the mouse.”
