Apple unveils iPhone at Macworld

Apple fans wanted two things: the iPhone and the widescreen, touchscreen iPod.


Just hours ago, they got both and a lot more in one device: the Cingular-loving iPhone. Quadband GSM, 3.5-inch screen (320 x 480), Wi-Fi, EDGE, Safari web browser, OS X (!), Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel digital camera all packed into a 4.5" x 2.4" x 0.46" convergence powerhouse weighing 4.8 ounces.

The bad news, aside from the storage capacity (which we already knew about), is this nasty little statement at the bottom of all the iPhone pages:

This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.

Oh well. For now let’s just be happy that it’s real. According to Engadget‘s keynote coverage, the iPhone will be available with a two-year Cingular contract in the U.S. in June (4GB: $499, 8GB: $599), in Europe by the end of the year, and in Asia next year.
