We all knew that it was coming; apparently they wanted to announce it now before formally applying for FCC approval. I’ve read the first hand reviews and seen the keynote where Steve Jobs gives an amazing demonstration. It’s no surprise that Apple’s stock jumped 7% yesterday. Why is iPhone so novel?
iPhone has a simple, but revolutionary, new user-interface. No physical keypad, for starters, but there are other features best appreciated by viewing the keynote speech. Well, apparently, the features are best appreciated by using the phone. And that’s what I intend to do as soon as they become available (supposedly in June).
I could describe the phone’s features but there’s no point in competing with Apple’s CEO. Steve Jobs is an absolute master of the corporate presentation, and I highly recommend his keynote as a model of how to communicate to a large audience.
