The Apple iPhone

Jun 9, 2008
The iPhone created quite a sensation before and after it first emerged in the market. Why did it make such a huge impact on the tech savvy community and beyond? Because it's different, feature-rich and packs advanced technology and powerful impression in one neatly sized package. It's a mobile phone and iPod combined.

Named 'Invention of the Year 2007' by Time magazine, it uses a degree of technology that has never been introduced before. It has all the standard features of a regular mobile phone.

The iPhone has the ordinary caller ID, call holding, call merging, conferencing and other cellular network integration capabilities, in addition to its unique features. Further exploring the iPhone, the first noteworthy function is the visual voicemail feature. This handy function lets you access voicemail messages directly and individually, without scrolling numerous other messages before getting to the important one.

Another convenient feature in the iPhone is the internet browsing capability. The HTML email client is fast and easy to use and you can synchronise bookmarks between your computer and iPhone without a problem. The best mobile web browser, Safari, is used in the iPhone.

The iPhone is especially helpful when you need to find alternative routes during traffic jams. The Google Maps feature in it can provide various satellite images and maps of the local area for you to decide on a different road to take. Traffic information is directly available via this feature.

The iPhone certainly makes life a whole lot easier. It has a small 3.5 inch screen that is touch controlled. It is a bigger screen than is typically seen on a mobile phone. This allows the quality of pictures and video to be considerably better.

The iPhone display has a tri-sensory responder system: the first unit acts as a shut off device when the iPhone is too close to the user's face. This is to prevent accidental entries from the user's facial contours. The next sensory unit is the ambient light sensor, which adjusts the display brightness according to the environment. The final unit is a 3-axis accelerometre, which can sense the phone's specific angle and change the screen suitably.

The iPhone has become the must-have technological gadget of our time. Downloadable music and movies, sleeker look, WiFi connectivity and larger screen have contributed to the iPhone's charm. Intriguingly, while the iPhone has so many functions, the majority are known to use it just for checking emails on the move. Statistics show that over 77% of iPhone owners check email on it. The other popular activities among iPhone users include internet surfing and downloading.
