Apple has redefined the mobile phone with a device that takes advantage of the faster 3G networks to allow users to access the internet as easily as making a call. The iPhone 3G does have a few minor shortcomings but the outstanding design, excellent interface and intelligent features more than make up for it.
Apple’s keynote presentation last year included an impressive demonstration that made it seem as if iPhoto ‘09 could rapidly export much more sophisticated photo slideshows, including some cool new 3-D transition effects, directly to these devices. While a new slideshow export feature is definitely included in the software, it doesn’t work exactly as we’d hoped. Apple will cover all credit card, web hosting, infrastructure and DRM costs associated with offering applications on the App Store. Third party iPhone and iPod touch applications must be approved by Apple and will be available exclusively through the App Store.
Apple plans to do a complete revamp of the iPhone’s camera app user-interface (or lack thereof) and will add a video recording feature with a timer to it. Now users won’t have to resort to third party solutions or jailbreaking their devices just to capture laggy video with their iPhone’s crappy camera. Apple also announced a partnership with Starbucks that enables iPhone and touch owners to purchase songs they hear in Starbucks stores via WiFi.
Apple executives have repeatedly communicated Apple's confidence in AT&T Mobile as the exclusive carrier for the iphone, attempting to instill in consumers the idea that the best mobile device is exclusively paired with the best mobile service carrier.
Apple's iPhone received mostly good reviews. The large screen, mail client, finger-driven scrolling interface, and especially the embedded Safari web browser received high praise from each reviewer though they criticized the lack of flash or Windows Media Video support. Apple needs to design it, the FCC needs to approve it and Apple needs to test it. And who says its going to be better.
