oops, did they do it again?
sure looks that way to me. what apple did for personal music players with the ipod may be peanuts compared to what the iphone, unveiled today at macworld expo 2007, may do for cell phones, pdas and well, ipods. this thing is a monster when it comes to the amount of technology that apple has packed into a device that is just slightly larger than the current full-size ipod: 3.5 inch widescreen display, mac os x with email and web browsing, wi-fi, bluetooth, a 2mp camera, and a new multi-touch on-screen user interface. the only drawbacks are the limited storage capacity (4gb or 8gb) and, of course, the price ($500 and $600). that's probably a little too pricey for most people (me included), but you can bet once the price comes down a bit and the skeptics are quieted, this will be a must-have come next holiday season.
see what else it can do (the interface on the ipod side is pretty sweet)
