And then 2 days ago, I spotted a CNN feature showing the presentation of one of Apple's executives. Although the Apple conference is far cry cheaper than the Billion Dollar annual convention of Oracle OpenWorld, they're both held in San Francisco, but I only get to attend (for the past two years) OpenWorld (however this year, I wasn't able to attend any keynotes at all, just the freaking Elton John Concert for Oracle Appreciation Event).
iPhone combines three products — a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, maps, and searching — into one small and lightweight handheld device. iPhone also introduces an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, letting you control everything with just your fingers. So it ushers in an era of software power and sophistication never before seen in a mobile device.
I'll be getting one of this as soon as it gets out. I promise this to myself, being the non-cellular-telephony-person that I am.
