apple iPhone

a prototype image of apple's new iPhone

it’s not bad looking is it. mobile phone, touch screen iPod and “a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, maps, and searching“.

whoa.

unlike what appears to be the vast majority of the world nowadays, i don’t actually own any Apple stuff. i’m not really fussed about any of the things going on at macworld. but i can’t deny the coolness of this, so i wont try. nor will i try to convey any exclusive news about it because it’s been done to death by now.. i just wanted to add: is this going to change the way we design webpages? if it proves to be half as popular as the iPod, then are really going to have to reconsider how webpages are laid out. it doesn’t look like it’ll require massive changes (it seems to run safari rather well) but you never know. i realise that mobile browsing etc has been around for a fair bit by now but let’s be honest, it’s not exactly ingrained into the public consciousness. whereas iPods are. so will the iPhone be too..? give it a year and we’ll find out. exciting stuff.
