I saw on the news this morning that Apple announced the new iPhone. I only saw some brief stuff, but it looks pretty awesome.
Apple shot for the ultimate high end with its iPhone announcement Tuesday, loading in radical new features that other phone manufacturers will be racing to catch up with.
And they’ll have room to race, because the iPhone is priced so high that only true fans will be able to afford one, and only Cingular Wireless customers will be able to buy it. That will prevent Apple from dominating the smart phone market the way it has the MP3 player market.
I thought it would be: It has not only GSM, EDGE, and Bluetooth (and notably, not one of the 3G high-speed cellular networks) but Wi-Fi and a gigantic, super-high-res touch screen.
It surfs the Web with a desktop-quality browser and gets push e-mail — but notice that it’s personal Yahoo! e-mail, not corporate e-mail, and there’s no solution for editing document attachments. This is a consumer phone, not a business phone.
