The "iPhone" is a mobile phone introduced by Apple in 2007. Also known as a smart phone, it is considered a revolutionary product because of these technical features: phone calls, voice mail, ringtones, SMS, photos, music, video, Wi-Fi, Internet, e-mail, maps, widgets, multi-touch, OS X, wireless, accelerometer (which senses the orientation of the phone and changes the screen accordingly), proximity sensor, and more including the most advanced Web browser on a mobile device. It has a 3.5 inch LCD and HVGA touch screen topped (with optical-quality, scratch-resistant glass which is specifically created for use with a finger, or multiple fingers for multi-touch sensing) and weighs only 4.8 ounces (135 grams). Whew, for detailed information on each of the features, click on the "Wikipedia" link below.
In other words, it's a very good thing! One of the coolest aspects of owning an iPhone is using a number of killer apps found in the App Store. In the year since Apple's online App Store opened, it sold more than 800 million applications for its iPhone, at prices ranging from free to $10. Apple keeps 30 percent of each sale, with 70 percent going to the application's developer. Rivals BlackBerry and Palm will also open app stores of their own.
