iPhones Reviews - Apple's iPhone to Revolutionize The Cell Phone Generation

iPhone3G iphone reviews multimedia smartphone Apple's iPhone iphone3g first generation iPhoneHere's another amazing creation of Apple. Yes... iPhone that created a buzz across the web. This is again a struggle for Apple to inject the iphone virus amidst the cell phone user mob. Steve Jobs - the Apple founder once stated that he would be happy if the iPhone could manage to engulf as negligible as only 1% of the 1 billion mobile phone users in the global market during its first year. Shortly after this smart gadget stepped in to the market, the US-based market research firm Markitecture published a report showing that only 6% of 1300 mobile phone users were likely to skip to iPhone, keeping aside their traditional cell phones in the next one year.

The biggest hurdle for Apple to promote iPhone is not only it's high price, but also the carrier issues, i.e. Cingular in US. Yet, it seems the iPhone virus is still spreading wide across the globe. So what's there in the iPhone that creates a whole lot of craze all around? Putting it in the simplest way, iPhone is a revolutionary mobile phone that facilitates you by allowing you to make a call just by tapping a number or a name in your call log, address book or favorites list. This technically engineered hi-tech device automatically syncs all the contacts from your Personal Computer, Mac, or even Internet services. This internet-connected multimedia smartphone has been designed with classy flush multi-touch screen, without a physical keyboard. With a minimal hardware interface, the virtual keyboard is rendered on the touch screen instead of pressing buttons like the regular mobile phones. Apple's iPhone has a wide range of functionality. Starting from a camera phone (including visual voicemail and text messaging), it functions almost like an ipod with a hi-tech portable media player. You can use it as a mobile Internet client to access your email, and/or web browsing. Local Wi-Fi connectivity adds flavor to the usability of this internet-connected multimedia smartphone.

Till date, there have been two generations of iPhone. The first generation iPhone was built with quad-band GSM with EDGE hardware, and the second generation have been upgraded with the addition of UMTS with HSDPA, making the device technically smarter.
