I was just watching Arn's spot on CNBC talking about the iPhone when I saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PmIHm8s2hA&mode=related&search= While I hate to think it is true, the video presents a good point. The first iPhone could just be an iPod plus a Phone... nothing new. Lets look back at what Kevin Rose said, he claims to have seen the phone and I for one trust his insight. Durring an episode of Diggnation he hesitantly told viewers the phone will be: -Small as **** -Have two batteries (one charger) -Slide out keyboard -4 gig /8 gig models Based on his comments about a touch screen one can assume it will be a 16:9 screen. He was not sure if it was a touch screen but then speculated it had touch sensitivity on the sides. So what if the design looked a lot like the old nano's with the silver part sliding sideways out. The screen is 16:9 taking up most of the front faceplate and the sides are touch screen. Cool design and probably good enough to ship. Here's where the CNBC report comes in. If apple puts together an iPod and a phone there is no need to add other functionality. Sure, a lite version of OS X would be great but it is much more like apple to leave that till version 2.0. It can be argued that is similar method was taken with the Xbox. Microsoft produced a minimal gaming console with the first xbox. It worked great and stood up against the competition but there was no functionality that users had not expected. When the 360 came out it revolutionized the living room. Suddenly the 360 is a console for the whole family. Mom can display photo's from vacation to grandma on the HDTV, Timmy can play his favorite games against his brothers and sisters with wireless controllers, and Dad can download the new releases instead of driving down to Blockbuster and best of all watch them in HD. It wasnt their first product that revolutionized the market, it was their second one. The iPhone just might take the same route. Dont build your hopes up folks, the iPhone may be nothing more than a phone and an iPod. Lets just hope I am wrong.
