Wow. I'm reading live feeds of Steve Job's keynote speech at Macworld. He's announced the new iPhone for Cingular. The features are unreal. Data and photos are courtesy of Engadget.
It's a smartphone that runs on Mac OS X and updates on iTunes.
Add html email support to the features list.
Job's was so cocky with the iPhone that he checked Apple's stock price on stage to show that the stock had jumped $2.50 during his presentation. Compare that to the 29 cent increase in Microsoft's stock during its partnership announcement with Ford yesterday.
The 4GB iPhone will go out the door in the US as a Cingular exclusive for $499 on a two-year contract, 8GB for $599. Ships Stateside in June, Europe in fourth quarter, Asia in 2008.
While it's out of a lot of people's price range now, this phone will change the game. BTW, Apple's stock rose 8 percent or $7.10 today. I hope everyone bought stock at the right time.
