Good 'Jobs'

The long wait has ultimately come to an end. Apple's celebrity CEO Steve Jobs announced in the Macworld Conference, SF, the launch of iPhone, describing it as "the ultimate digital device."

“Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone,” he declared, showing off a thin handheld device with a 3.5 inch screen that displays touch-screen controls. Mr Jobs said it would play music and video as well as display email and act as a better handset for browsing the internet than anything else available. Watch the keynote here.

Price: 4GB $499 with a two-year contract; 5GB $599 with two year contract. Shipping in June (to groans from the audience) to US; Europe by Q4, Asia in 2008. Confirms partnership with Cingular.

Battery life: 5 hours talktime/video/browsing; 16 hours audio playback.

Guys call up all your friends and families, right now in the US and book an iPhone for yourself before its too late.
