Many of my friends and family ask me "What is an
iPhone?" as they
see me holding it. What is so special about it? isn't it just a phone? What is all this fuss about? They wonder.
They know how much I like to start an iPhone chat and they challenge me with those iPhone questions. So many question such as:
What is an iPhone 4, and what is the iPhone 4 antenna problem?
Why buy an iPhone? and what are the iPhone 4 features?
What is the difference between an iPad vs iPhone?
If you have ever asked what is an iPhone, you could think of the iPhone as a mini computer,
can run thousands of iPhone applications of different functions. What made this process so
unique and easy on the iPhone is the ability to download and install those
application from the iPhone itself with an iPhone data plan.
You simply connect to an online store called the App Store that has thousands of applications to choose from. You install them
right from your iPhone with nothing else. Contradictory to other smart
phones, where you had to connect to your computer first and then install your
application on your computer, and then sync to your mobile device.
Although, almost all smart phones are capable of
internet access and have an MP3 player, the iPhone design and the simple to use iOS allows to do everything faster, more efficient, easy and in a fun to use way.
It is a device that is reliably compatible with both PC's and Mac's running iTunes to to Sync to your computer..
The iPhone software or iOS is so stable that you can forget about ever restarting. You will most probably restart your iPhone only if you want to update to a newer iPhone OS. If you run into a problem, then some iPhone troubleshooting might help you solve any iPhone issue.
The iPhone is a perfect portable camera that can capture both still photos and videos at the same time. The iPhone 4 camera is 5 Mega pixel and can record 720P high definition video at 30 frame per second.
"what is an iPhone?" is one of the iPhone questions that will continue to fill the internet iPhone chat rooms and will create debates for years to come. The iPhone is a
device that revolutionized the cell phone industry just like the Apple
iPod revolutionized the MP3 player industry in 2001. With the iPhone 4, Apple has started all over again setting a new standard and benchmark for smart phones for years to come.
People now look at smart
phones differently, and now they expect a smart phone to do more than just
phone calls. This sever competition is good; It will push Apple to invent and produce
even more fantastic products from hardware and/or software in the future.
