    All in one device! Jobs just announced it! Looks like most of us are getting what we wished for! And it IS being called the iPhone (at least that's what Steve said, but then he keeps calling it an iPod)!

    He says he's been looking forward to this device for 2.5 years, and it is truly revolutionary, years of research and development. The entire interface changes depending on the app. No keyboard. No stylus. Use your finger. Handles multiple presses at once. RUNS OS X, runs desktop-class applications.

    UPDATES: Holy crap, AND it's thinner than a Q at 11.6mm!! 8GB capacity, 2MP camera, syncs everything with iTunes....Bluetooth, Wifi, GSM+EDGE.

    And a proximity sensor to turn off the touch sensitivity when you hold it up to your face!!!!

    I think I'm going to wet myself.

    Wow. This sounds awesome.

    Right now, I'm just scared about how much it's going to cost because I'm pretty sure I am buying one.

    Whoa, this is interesting: It appears to know where you are. Steve didn't say anything about GPS, but he was able to find a Starbucks nearby. Wonder if it's using cell phone tower triangulation or something.

    5 hours of talk time, video, or browsing.

    16 hours of music playback.

    Whoever's doing the MacRumor's feed isn't very specific.

    Research in Motion is definitely feeling the iPhone debut. Apple has raised the bar for all phone makers. Any phone debuting at the CES this week is already "last century"

    As it turns out, yes it is definitely the iPhone: http://www.apple.com/iphone/

    It will be interesting to see Cisco's reaction to this.
