Steve Jobs and the iPhone
Has Steve Jobs been doing a bit of sandbagging when it comes to the iPhone? As it appears that there may be more to the long awaited iPhone than we all expected, or rather what we have been lead to believe.
Could it be something to do with the fact that the iPhone is going to have a huge memory possibly up to 8 GB, if this were true does this mean that the iPhone and iPod have been combined and that if they mentioned this at the annoucement, sales of the iPod would probably be zero while people waited?
Unlike the iPod the iPhone will have a battery that can be replaced if and when necessary, one thing that many iPod users really dislike, another much improved feature and clearly the folks at Apple have been reading all those emails.
The iPhone will have a variation of the iWork and iLife suites which will provide word processing, slideshow and spreadsheet features, as for music and content the iPhone will probably allow you to stream content from iTunes via a wireless network, this is a space saving feature as there would be no need to save the data.
iTunes will feature heavily in the development of this phone, as you would expect the iPhone will allow the user to buy music over an internet connection or wireless network depending on what service you will be using, and the user can always transfer these purchases to a computer.
As we already know the iPhone is going to cost up to $600, which is very high no matter what the features are, however experience tells us that nobody really buys anything when it first comes out, it is always the way, because after a while the prices begin to fall dramatically and then we begin to see special deals.
But until we actually get to see or hear the full details of the iPhone we can still only keep guessing.
