The iPhone

The iPhone

It seems that this year, Apple really has lived upto its reputation as a leader in innovation and Steve Jobs has done it again. Though I'm having trouble finding the video of the keynote speech (will look for it on YouTube), Mac Rumors had these pictures of the iPhone.

iPhone another iPhone

It looks much cooler than any mobile I have owned or have considered owning and the new user interface is something I'd love to try out. Though the iMate K-Jam probably does a lot of what iPhone does, the latter looks so much slicker and cooler. $499 (for the 4GB version) isn't cheap though and I'll probably have to both wait for it to reach these shores and also for the price to come down quite a bit.

Apple is in big trouble now as Networking Giant Cisco has plan to sue Apple for using iPhone which is Cisco registered name. Bad Luck Apple.

I read about that and the last news was that Apple is in talks with Cisco about using the name. It seems that they've come to an agreement about it. There's no way a corporation as big as Apple would use a registered trademark without clearing things up.

Yeah I hope they end up having some sort of agreement but that hurts Apple as they will be paying Cisco some hefty amount.

incase you don't bother to read properly, the Ipohone is only being released in the USA right now. This will be locked to the company called Cingular (meaning that it's SIM card is American and can't be changed) so it will not work in Pakistan. The iPhone will be released in Europe in October 2007 and Asia in 2008...so even if you do buy it, it won't work here until 2008...these bookings you have made are blatant scams and fraudulent.

I am buying one tomorrow in Karachi. I held it in my hand and it was awesome. I used all the features except the phone and sms. The phone features will not work here, unless its hacked. Unlikey. But I am still buying one. Asking price is Rs. 70,000. That is steep. But hey, its Apple and just gotta have it. Will use as PDA :)
