iPhone Finally Launches

Ruzan Haruriunyan's picture

Today it’s June 29 and its iPhone’s launch day. This is the most long awaited day since Apple announced about the new smart phone to be released six months ago.

Apple’s and AT&T stores across America are crowded with camping consumers and press. Technology lovers want to obtain the new phone as soon as possible and to test its gadgets. Press is talking and talking about the consumer electronics’ market buzz.

Some people even make business in these camping queues. For $200 somebody will keep your queue for a short while, so you can have a little walk around and then come back to your queue.

iPhone is a combination of mobile phone, iPod, web application surfer, video and audio player. Purchasing the smart phone you’ll have lots of features all in one in your pocket. It has 3.5-inch touch sensitive screen instead of a keyboard and comes with 4 gigabyte or 8 gigabyte for $499 (£250)or $599 (£300) accordingly.

iPhones exclusive service provider in US is AT&T that offers two year contract with the phone from monthly fee of $60 (£30) to $100 (£50). The smart phone is SIM-free to avoid customers buy it and then add a SIM-card purchased from a rival service providing company.

Apple promises iPhone to have a long battery life: 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of browsing, 7 hours of video playback or 24 hours of audio playback.

Apple expects about 10 million iPhones to be sold in 18 months and about $5 billion revenue. During these six months Apple’s shares rose by 40 percent.

So if you want to have an iPhone you can buy it at Apple’s and AT&T’s stores that will open at 6 p.m. local times. But you can also get hired at Apple, because it promised about 18000 employees will get smart phones at the end of this month. by Ruzan Harutyunyan for
