Apple’s iPhone – Sleek but pricey

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007


Just watched Steve Jobs’ keynote speech for the launch of iPhone. He is such a good speaker and I cannot imagine anyone replacing him as the best spokesman for Apple.

The iPhone was not a big surprise, as rumors had been around for a LONG time. However, the sleek look of the phone and the touch screen User-Interface still fascinated me. I liked Apple’s approach to small electronics. They built software to support their own hardware and the hard work definitely paid back. The success of Intel-based Macs and iPod showed their strength. No one else could do the same, well, except Microsoft (remember, they released Zune … ).
