    Anyone else who gave Apple and/or AT&T their e-mail addresses feel a bit sleighted?



    I mean, this kind of counts as NEW INFORMATION. So where is MY E-MAIL? Watch it comes tomorrow. :-p

    Is it me or does the phone seem a bit smaller than the one Steve was using?

    I get emails from Apple about all sorts of product or services launches. It's always a day or two after I hear about somewhere else. Usually here.

    I think the pics on apple.com are misleading, making it look bigger than it actually is. If I recall correctly iPhone is, within a millimeter, the same dimensions as a Treo... except 1/2 as thick.

    Notice this first image is the usual setup of the iPhone's buttons.

    But what could it be?

    60 minutes?



    Advertising on 60 minutes, looks like Apple is focusing on corporate America to fuel the fire for first generation of the iphone. Company managers are probably the only one's other than Paris Hilton who can afford one. A lot of the surveys asking highschool students if they would buy one are failing to ask how they're going to get mom and pop to pay for them. It seems unlikely Apple will be able to get it's 10% market share during this first corporate push. It doesn't even look like their initial supply figures will get them anywhere close to those figures. When Jobs introduces the new ultra-portables in the Fall, expect the marketing to similarly target corporate America. The corporate execs and managers will want to get their laptops to communicate seemlessly with their new necessary business tool. With this new top down marketing model we should expect Mr. or Mrs. CEO or CFO to be the first to get their hands on one. We'll see the execs at Disney walking around with their complimentary iPhones come June 29th and lower level managers not wanting to get left on the wrong side of the digital divide ponying up their own money to keep pace with their higher-ups. Jobs is banking on the iphone becoming the new status icon for corporate America. Just long enough for the managers to have to get their hands on one when their bosses' show up with them during board meetings, capitalizing on the early adopters, upper management, before making them hip for the rest of us with the second gen.'s in the fall. That might explain why the second gen is expected out so soon after the first gen. In order to use a top down marketing model, Apple will have to act fast in order to not let the iphone become their parent's business device.

    Any carrier would be stupid to turn down the extra revenue from another purchase and extra monthly data charges. The only thing you can't do is move to another carrier.



    Even if i could get this to happen...no way somebody will spend this much time on me on the 29th. I'll have to wait awhile.

    You are delusional. Apple is going to be shorthanded on iPhones for the next 6 months. It's going to be harder to get than the wii.

    Some UI enhancements have come to the iPhone:

    1. There's a satisfying click upon unlocking.

    2. The transition to coverflow is now a fade in, not a twirl in (or whatever you'd call it), this would be both more seamless, and easier of the processor and battery.

    3. The phone unlocking to main screen-transition is completely new. Before the home screen just appeared, now the locked slider screen fades to black, the date moves up out of screen, and the icons move in quickly from all sides.

    4. Not a UI enhancement, but when the guy is looking for a restaurant he says "the closest would be?" GPS? Doubtful, but worth pointing out nonetheless.

    5. The notes and calculator icons no longer have brown on them, which I did dislike for the calculator, but never minded for the notes app icon. On a side note I sent the feedback about hating the brown color on the calculator app icon on Jan 10th, just sayin'

    6. The fade to call screen seems more seamless, which is great. Just a demo sure, but it's still cool.

    7. The UI for the mid transition to an incoming call is new too. Before the screen just changed with no real transition, now it happens in a quick small series of smooth, planned, deliberate transitions.



    All Apple's hard work on this iPhone will pay off for them, in the end.. big time.

    no one is going to comment on the hand model?

    Rats. I was hoping the release would be soon enough for me to pick up an iPhone during WWDC. Between that and the 2-year plan requirement, I guess I'll have to wait along with the rest of Canada for the iPhone to get introduced up here.

    Although I'm still holding out hope for a GPS chip and real location services, tower triangulation gets them within 300 metres/95% of the time so perhaps they're using that for some early location service type stuff.

    Nice catch. I wonder if Google maps can pick up on the wifi access point IP address being used or if there was a screen?which we didn't see?that has saved locations of various areas we are likely to be in. I'm going with the latter.





    Despite the multitude of times I've masturbated to the iPhone, I can't really comment on those new transition effects you mention.

    Plus they basically own ABC... So, hey, free advertising! But I guess they did pick the time slot for a good reason. They obviously didn't debut it during (insert prime-time ABC show name here) for a good reason.
