Apple Strikes Back

Years of Speculation on Apple’s iPhone has been ended.  Apple announced launching of iPhone today. 

Apple claims that iPhone is a revolutionary new mobile phone that allows you to make a call by simply pointing your finger at a name or number in your address book, a favorite list, or a call log. It also automatically syncs all your contact from a PC, Mac, or Internet service. And it lets you select and listen to voicemail messages in whatever order you want — just like e-mail. 

iPhone features a rich HTML email client and Safari — the most advanced web browser ever on a portable device — which automatically syncs bookmarks from your PC or Mac. Safari also includes built-in Google and Yahoo! search. iPhone is fully multi-tasking, so you can read a web page while downloading your email in the background over Wi-Fi or EDGE.

Will iPhone sank all giant cell phones manufactures like Samsung, LG, Nokia or Moto?

It will be bloody fierce battlefield.
