Tech - iPhone

Apple Inc (Previously called Apple Computer Inc) yesterday announced the launch of its latest product, the iPhone. Apple touts the iPhone as a combo of iPod, Phone and Internet communicator.

You can watch Steve Job's Iphone introduction here: (Please watch... its very interesting)

Apple has also partnered Google to include Google Maps, Yahoo to provide push mail service for all iPhone users. The sole distributor for the iPhone in the US will be Cingular and will be avaiable in the US from June 2007, Europe 4th quarter 2007 and Asia 2008 (sigh!)

Things that I like:

Wide screen

Wi Fi

The things that I am concerned with are as follows:

Will OS X be compatible with Windows?

There does not seem to be expansion slot

The battery is not removable

Till I have more information..... and also see what others have to say as well

Try this post in Treonauts, which compares the Treo 680 with the iPhone.
