Looking at the photos of the silver-y rear of the phone, I'd assume the matte black area on the bottom is the battery, because otherwise the whole back would be silvery I think because of Apple's shi shi design conventions.

apple could pull it off though....
Even if it works, I still prefer the button to go down when I push it. Pressing fixed plastic can get annoying. I'll reserve judgment until I try it though.

I would assume so. Otherwise why put it on the back like that? That's the usual cell phone design convention.



The interface is gorgeous....takes some design cues from the Zune interestingly as far as the use of black.

accellerometer, it can tell whether you're in landscape and portrait. Like on a digital camera, when you turn the camera sideways, the picture refits itself on the screen to still be right side up.


Visual voicemail -- wouldn't it be great if you didn't have to listen to five of them to list to the sixth? Just like email you can go directly to the voicemails that interest you. <--- nice.

I see Widescreen iPods coming out in Fall 07.

Just by the time my 30 gig battery might die!

Although HDTV is awesome, the rest of America is not keeping up with your HD glory.

This holiday season scores of people purchased discounted HDTVs from the big stores like Best Buy and were disappointed that their local cable TV still looked, unsurprisingly, like shit.

Until the HDDVD/Blue Ray format wars are decided, and more people subscribe to DirectTV-esque services offering large amounts of HD programming, there is no real need for Apple to support top of the line 1080p hehe.

meh....

I agree about the format war, though I don't think we'll see a clear winner for quite a while....

for now I'll stick with my 360 for HD goodness...

I heard there's talks of making a Total HD DVD/Player

it would handle every type of High-Def DVD and even the original DVDs.

I'd be in for that

It's cool that the iPhone is finally out after so long, but I dunno, I'm not going to spend $600 on a phone that only has 4 or 8 Gb. Plus, I have a pet peeve about getting screens dirty, so the fact that my fingers would be all over that screen would drive me nuts. And talking on it would get it even more dirty...anyway, it's beautiful, but I'm not going to buy it.
