Remember back in January at MacWorld, during the iPhone unveiling, when Google CEO Eric Schmidt jested on stage that one of the reasons he joined Apple's board of directors was to get an iPhone? It was all made in fun of course, but it seems Eric made good on that boast because he in fact does now have an iPhone, which he flaunted on camera at a recent forum. (see above).
Macworld attendees have been busy capturing the iPhone in video. One user posted a really good product demo given to attendees by Apple, which shows off more of the device's features in action. Nothing that we haven't already seen, just done by someone other than Jobs. Enjoy.
Apple finally launched its much rumored mobile phone at MacWorld yesterday, immediately triggering a massive worldwide drool-fest among gadget freaks. While it has been widely known that Apple has had such a product secretly in development for at least two years now, the device itself remained shrouded in mystery. Some analysts speculated the device would prove to be nothing more than a relatively simple inexpensive iPod phone, while others expected more of a Blackberry style Smartphone, done in a sleeker package. Both camps got it wrong...and right. iPhone isn't what anyone really expected.
