Steve Jobs just announced the production of the new iPhone (h/t tuaw.com). Now this is a gorgeous piece of machinery:
It will sell for $500 and (most importantly) a two year contract (apparently with Cingular). I wonder how this will pan out later on. Will contracts be allowed with other services if you don’t like Cingular’s service? It provides a number of spiffy new gadgets, but I think the biggest thing is that it works by human/screen touch. Steve Jobs says it a smart screen, so inadvertent touches are not registered. We’ll see.
What do you all think of this though? How about Apple jumping ahead of the competition yet again?
Here’s Apple’s Website on the iPhone.
