Breaking News!!! Apple iPhone

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Computer Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs on Tuesday introduced an eagerly-anticipated Apple-branded mobile phone with a touch-screen that combines features from the company's popular iPod music player.

While Apple watchers were expecting details on an Apple smartphone able to play music, make calls and perform other functions, the announcement at the annual Macworld conference still helped push the company's shares up more than 5 percent.

Jobs did not give immediate details on the pricing of the phone or its availability, but his speech was expected to continue until 11:00 a.m. local time. The phone will use the network of AT&T's cellular unit, Cingular Wireless.

The move also could help Apple bolster its dominant position in the market for portable digital media devices. The iPod now commands more than a 70 percent share of the U.S. market for MP3 players, as the devices are also known.

The new 11.6 millimeter phone includes a 3.5-inch wide touchscreen display with multi-touch support, 2 megapixel camera and 8 gigabytes of storage. It runs Apple's OS X operating system.

Jobs also said another device that allows users to stream movies, music, photos, podcasts and TV shows to their home entertainment systems would ship in February. Dubbed "AppleTV," the 40 gigabyte machine will cost $299, the same price Jobs forecast back in September.

Jobs also said movies from Paramount films would be sold in on Apple's iTunes online music store in addition to titles from Disney.

Apple has sold more than 70 million iPods since they were introduced and consumers have bought more than 2 billion songs for about 99 cents each on iTunes. More than 220 television shows are also available on iTunes.

Apple shares rose $4.30 to $88.77 following the announcement.

Pricing is $499 for a 4GB iPhone, $599 for 8GB. And as the article states, only through Cingular. Well, at least until the first unlock code comes out, then any GSM service.

That screen looks like it would crack in about 3 seconds.

But I don't care if the thing had free NFL Sunday Ticket and played it flawlessly...I would never use a phone that only had Cingular service. Their service is pathetic around here.

I'm completely tied to Verizon because it is the only one that gives good service in my house.

500 for a phone? My LG cost $50, and for another $30, I was able to put a miniSD 1 GB card in it.

My 2nd Gen 40GB iPod (which I only use 6GB of) and my RAZR are both getting a bit long in the tooth, and the idea of only carrying around one device instead of two is pretty appealing...

Well, sure, my phone looks impressive, don't touch it, but I predict that within 100 years, phones will be twice as powerful, 10,000 times larger, and so expensive that only the five richest kings of Europe will own them.

I usually find Apple products over-rated/over-priced and am highly annoyed at the attitudes most Mac-users hold, but at first glance this smartphone is very, very impressive. The real test will be actually using it and seeing how well the touch-screen functionality works, and how durable it is.

My concern is in airplanes. I do a ton of traveling and if there is no way to turn off the phone from and leave the MP3 player on, it's useless in a plane.

My Smart Phone (Cingular 8125) has a mode for when you're on a plane.

True, but I'm beginning to think that having the device run on OSX will be worth the price of admission.

Since it does run on OSX, I'd be very surprised if you wouldn't be able to simply turn off the service that runs the phone portion of the hardware.

yeah, it's a nice phone. Too bad it's Apple and Cingular. Oh well, just like everything else Apple makes, something else will come along that does the same or more, for less. And I won't have to be stuck buying on iTunes.

1) They said they will be working on one that works on other services
2) Like the Zune?

Not sure about the other stuff, but you sure don't have to buy music on iTunes to listen to it in an iPod.. I haven't bought a song on iTunes and my 80 Gb iPod is at least half full by now.

There is nothing in the hardware of the phone that keeps it from working with any GSM provider. There is just some sort of software key on it that will only allow it to work with a Cingular branded SIM card. This is referred to as "locking" the phone to a particular provider. This is easily overridden, and I'm sure that the fix will be out the same day as the iPhone. You will also probably be able to buy an unlocked phone to use on any GSM service, but the price will probably be $200 to $300 higher.

Dola,

Lost in the shuffle of today's product announcements is that Apple is dropping 'Computer' from the official company name. It'll now just be Apple, Inc.

I know this. I'm referring to a non-GSM version.

Hell, I think Apple TV was lost in the shuffle. (Not that I think it's very noteworthy, and only would be if it were a PVR)

Gotcha.

But with only Sprint and Verizon on CDMA in North America only, and the rest of the world on one of the 4 GSM frequencies, I would be surprised if we saw a CDMA version soon. And it will be a while before a non-Cingular branded iPhone is available on T-Mobile or AT&T, since Cingular evidently ponied up $150 million to be the exclusive US Vendor. Not sure for how long. I think it was 6 months that Cingular was the only place you could get a RAZR.

Looks very good. Any word on the Euro release? I'm guessing that with this Cingular exclusive, it gets released in the US first. I hope they'll release it no-brand over here, I've always hated branded phones.

It looks like O2 is going to be the exclusive provider in Europe to begin with. If I remember, then that means they will be Wind in Italy?

I guess. I just checked their site, and they're advertising the i-Mode technology, which is Wind-exclusive here. I'm not 100% sure, though.

So I take it the $500 pricetag is including being subsidized by Cingular? Most smart phones are 100-200 cheaper with a contract than buying straight out, but i'm assuming the iphone isn't. I'm content that outside of the Itunes part, my current phone can do all the same things (though the screen is only 240x320 and not as sharp), but I'll be damned if I won't get an iPhone anyway.

I'm going to guess that's Apple's phone number.

And just like that, I don't geel like getting the iPod phone.
http://www.tuaw.com/2007/01/09/iphon...-applications/

It seems you can't install any apps on it, so you can only do what Apple wants. I was hoping it was a real OSx install, so I could throw some fun stuff on there. Imagine if I could have skype on that thing. It looks slick as hell, but its too locked down.
