Apple just introduced iPhone, it's an iPod, a phone and runs on OSX, it even comes with Safari and runs Dashboard widgets has text messaging, a calendar, Address Book and Notes.

The interface is so very much Apple, featuring a cool "multi-touch" display. This is a basically a Mac that is also a phone... incredible:

Very cool. I dislike cell phones because of their non-intuitive interfaces. This looks like a breeze to use.

iPhone’s accelerometer detects when you rotate the device from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes the contents of the display, so you immediately see the entire width of a web page or a photo in its proper landscape aspect ratio.

Smart.

This is definitely a cool gadget. It's really the Newton as it was meant to be, just marketed as a phone.

My trekkiest friends are saying it should really be called the Apple Tricorder.

To bring this back the topic of webmastering for a moment, how about this for a web browsing platform?

Platform: OS X
Browser: Safari.

Any word on whether Apple will be releasing, say, an 80 gb iPod with a screen this size?

an 80 gb iPod with a screen this size

There are Apple rumors out there that such a product might be released even before the phone is. Or perhaps it's a miniature Mac that size. Or else a tablet Mac. Maybe all three.

If you want to know for sure, better get a job at Apple.
