The new Apple iPhone

I saw the Apple key note in CES 2007. I must say, it seems Mr. Jobs has never used Windows Mobile 5.0 device.

I mean the guy was all on reinventing the phone, and getting excited about synchronizing your contacts with your PC and typing with your finger and getting a little picture of whoever is calling, all of which the WM5 devices have been doing out of the box for a while now. Infact, my 3 yearold Pocket PC 2003 Phone Edition has been doing it for 3 years.

The only thing I can see that is really cool is the pinching thing for zooming in, and the accurate typing with the fingers on the tiny on-screen keyboard. And I am just assuming the latter. It could be that Steve Jobs has an accurate finger.

  1. Or that it's macromedia directed video that is orchestrated to show that! Like all major presentations...

  3. It's not like I hate apple or am totally in love with Windows Mobile. It's just that there was so much hype surrounding it, and Steve Jobs was over the top talking about all the great features that phones have already been doing for well over 3 years now, and don't cost $800.

  4. Guess what!... The battery is sealed inside, there is no way to replace it. You can only recharge it. and when it's time to replace you have to take it to an authorized apple center!
