Apple computer has announced its entry into the mobile phone market, proudly unveiling its "iPhone" that the company hopes will emulate the revolutionary success of the iPod. Apple chief executive Steve Jobs introduced the sleek new device -- which also offers Internet access, a music player and a digital camera -- at the MacWorld conference yesterday and expo in San Francisco, showcasing Apple Technology. "Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything," jobs said. "It's like having the Internet in your pocket," the Apple CEO said. "It's the ultimate digital device. It's like having your life in your pocket."
The iPhone will be ultra-slim -- less than half-an-inch thick -- boasting a phone, internet capability and an MP3 player as well as featuring a two megapixel digital camera, Jobs said. Two versions of the iPhone will be released, a four gigabyte version priced at US $ 499 and an eight gigabyte version priced at US $599. The devices will be shipped to US retail stores in June, Jobs said. Apple expects to make it available in Asia by 2008. "This is a leapfrog product with a revolutionary new interface with software five years ahead of any other phone and desktop class applications, not those crippled applications you find on those other phones," Jobs said.
