Steve Jobs unveils the iPhone
Today, we're introducing three revolutionary products of this class.
The first one,
Is a widescreen iPod with touch controls.
The second is a revolutionary mobile phone.
And the third.
Is a breakthrough Internet communications device.
So, three things, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough Internet communications device.
An iPod, a phone.
And an Internet communicator.
Are you getting it?
These are not three separate devices.
This is one device.
And we are calling it iPhone.
Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone.
And here it is.
So, we're gonna reinvent the phone.
Now we're gonna start with a revolutionary user interface.
It's the result of years of research and development and of course, it's an interplay of hardware and software.
Now why do we a revolutionary user interface?
I mean Here's four smartphones, right?
Motorola Q, the BlackBerry, Palm Treo, Nokia E62, the usual suspects.
And what's wrong with their user interfaces?
Well, the problem with them is really sort of in the bottom 40 there.
It's this stuff right here.
They all have these keyboards whether you need them or not to be there.
So how are we gonna take this to a mobile device?
Well what we're gonna do is get rid of all these buttons and just make a giant screen, a giant screen.
Now how are we gonna communicate this, we don't wanna carry around a mouse, so what are we gonna do?
A stylus, right?
We're gonna use this stylus.
No, who wants a stylus?
You have to get them and put them away and you lose them.
Nobody wants a stylus.
So let's not use a stylus.
We're gonna use the best pointing device in the world.
We're gonna use a pointing device that we're all born with.
We're born with ten of them.
We're gonna use our fingers.
We're gonna touch this with our fingers.
And we have invented a new technology called Multi-Touch, which is phenomenal.
It works like magic.
You don't need a stylus.
It's far more accurate than any touch display that's ever been shipped.
It ignores unintended touches.
It's super smart.
You can do multi finger gestures on it.
And boy have we patented it!
And this is what it looks like.
It's got a 3.5 inch screen on it.
It's really big.
And it's the highest resolution screen we've ever shipped.
It's 160 pixels per inch.
Highest we've ever shipped.
And on the front, there's only one button down there.
We call it the Home button, takes you home from wherever you are, and that's it.
Let's look at the back.
On the back, the biggest thing of notice, we've got a 2 Megapixel camera built right in.
The other side and we're back on the front.
So let's take a look at the top now.
We've got a headset jack, 3.5 mm, all your iPhone headphones fit right in.
We got a place, a little tray for your SIM card, and we've got one switch for sleep and wake.
Just push it to go to sleep.
Push it to wake up.
And we're gonna do it again with the iPhone in 2007.
We're very excited about this.
