love in you

Now, what's so special about this, you ask?
People in America are queueing up for this despite the fact that it's only going to be launched 2 days later.
"The iPhone is a multimedia and Internet-enabled mobile phone by Apple, announced by company CEO Steve Jobs during the keynote at the Macworld Conference & Expo on 9 January 2007, that is scheduled to be released on 29 June 2007 in the U.S. at 6 p.m local time."
I just saw the video for the iPhone on Youtube and I was, okay, I admit. I was KINDA enthralled by its sleek, pristine white look and its functions.
In fact, I wasn't just kinda. I was amazed by what it can do.
"The iPhone's functions include those of a camera phone, a multimedia player, mobile phone, and Internet services like e-mail, text messaging, web browsing, Visual Voicemail and wireless connectivity. iPhone input is accomplished via touchscreen with virtual keyboard and buttons. The iPhone is a 2G quad-band GSM phone, though Jobs mentioned in his keynote that Apple has a "plan to make 3G phones" in the future."
I mean, who wouldn't kill for an iPhone? Most girls are not into gadgets and I'm a really girly girl, thus I'm not that into gadgets (ask me what's a Dopod and I probably can't give you the answer) but I totally adore this little baby.
If only I had 500 USD to buy it.
It's touchscreen is state-of-the-art and I do appreciate it's zoom function but seems like it is easy to leave fingerprints on it. Imagine how many times you would have to wipe your phone just to keep it clean and presentable looking.
Also, one big disadvantage is that if it runs on AT&T internet network, it would be really really slow.
Another thing is that I don't fancy watching videos on a small screen. Thats why I didn't get the iPod video and chose the Nano instead. I don't really get the iPod video, it's really big to fit onto my palm, and any girl's hand for that matter, is smaller than an average guys'. It's too big and would not be able to fit into my handbag if I do happen to carry small purses. And despite the fact that it's so big, it's screen is pretty small so I wouldn't be able to watch shows as clearly, as say, on a computer screen.
I like huge screens to watch movies on. The bigger, the better.
Thats why I only watch in movie theatres.
But what I LOVE about the iPhone is it's sleek look. It looks cool. It looks at the moment.
And also, I have to admit. It does have an apple logo behind it.
All anti-Mac users would curse at me now, and the Mac supporters would smile in agreement.
But it's true.
The reason why I bought an iPod, and not a Creative Zen is because-
It's an iPod.
I don't own that many high-tech gadgets though.
I'm pretty much a scrimp-and-save girl, and I basically work hard and save up to buy every gadget of mine.
None of my parents' money.
And I make sure I make full use of my iPod by listening to it for at least 2 hours everyday with its volume at full blast. Haha, I'm guilty of listening to it LOUDLY on trains and buses. Sorry.
My ears need sound surround.
"The iPhone will be available from the Apple Store and from AT&T Mobility, formerly Cingular Wireless, with a price of US$499 for the 4 GB model and US$599 for the 8 GB model, based on a two-year service contract. Apple intends to make the phone available in Europe in Q4 2007 and in Asia in 2008."Too bad I'd have to wait close to another year for it to be able to come to Asia and probably Singapore. Yeah, our ulu red dot on the map. Not even red, but virtually un-noticeable on our map.
Maybe I'd have saved up USD500 by then.
