Revolution of iPhone (iPhone-iPhone 5)

(Our Tech Blog) Good morning, loyal readers of this technology blog. Still like yesterday my eyes in pain. Hehehe: P. But that did not deter me to make postings. Now, I will discuss is the revolution of the iPhone. Who does not know the hell the iPhone? Yes, Apple's smartphone this invention is the following after the world's best-selling smartphone. Why not? The new fourth generation Apple alone has led to the largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world's largest number four. Under Nokia, Samsung, and LG. Well for that, let's find out with the revolutionary iPhone, from generation to generation.

1. The first generation iPhone,

quoted from wikipedia. on sale on June 29, 2007 in the U.S. at a price of U.S. $ 499 for the 4GB model and $ 599 for the 8GB model (but with the condition that the contract with AT & T for 2 years).

The iPhone is also welcome fans of the Mac because Apple perfecting feature
iPhone to meet the needs of consumers who are experienced in technology and retain its distinctive design of Apple's famous.

Actually if we look behind Apple's design, not much different technology than that offered by other companies, the only difference being Apple
removing the iPhone and they are selling this product, obviously Ben Wood of CCS Insight research firm.

But a hefty price of the iPhone makes bags sold out so this does not seem problematic for the magazine MacFormat editor Graham Barlow, who decided to buy two iPhones, regardless of price.

Like many others, Barlow was very impressed with the touch-screen technology (multi-touch) offered the iPhone, and Apple has patented.

The touch screen was born of resentment of Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, the current mobile phone usage. With a design that offered the iPhone, users simply
iPhone touch screen measuring 3.5 inches to connect a phone. If there is an incoming call, users simply touch the logo of a second. The third logo is touched to combine the two telephone lines into the conversation of three people.

With the breakthrough offered the iPhone touch screen, touch screen technology this would seem to have similar effects on the cellular phone market as well as the influence of the Nintendo Wii machine that can detect motion in the gaming market.

Before introducing iPhone, Apple had experimented with touch-screen technology. Apple's first try with a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) type of Newton. Other companies like SonyEricsson and Nokia also has a tool with a touch screen, but unfortunately many are not successful.

What makes it special compared to the iPhone similar gadget is little innovation in
iPhone as a motion sensor that automatically detects when users rotate the tool from a standing position to sleep and change the display according to the position of the phone screen.

Some people think the iPhone finally managed to fix the problem so far of how various functions can be incorporated with either a single instrument. But observers of the mobile phone research company Jupiter, Tom Hussen, not too sure of that.

In an interview with the BBC, Hussen said that unites the functions without any compromise is very difficult to achieve.

"IPhone has clearly declared the new standard for mobile phone manufacturers and Apple's fix the major problems faced by experienced users, but this phone can only be sold if offered something great," he said.

Hussen also found some things that might cause problems such as the ability to survive a battery (five hours to call and about 16 hours to hear
music), the security of the iPhone operating system that allows programs and software from other manufacturers.

However apapapun comments from various parties, that is clear to fans of Apple products, the presence of the iPhone that uses the operating system Appke OS X on the iPhone has made them feel happy and helped to perform various activities in one tool. "No one predicted it, but this means that Mac users easily use it because it was used," explains Barlow is optimistic about the iPhone product. Although eager to buy the iPhone, Barlow realized that the tool is easily scratched. In addition to the price of U.S. $ 499 iPhone offers the ability to store a relatively low at only 4GB. For the 8GB model consumers have to spend U.S. $ 599.Minimnya capability of storing means many people are not going to just dump the iPod and switch to the iPhone. Graham Barlow assess the iPod will continue to enjoy healthy sales and compete with his young brother. (source)

Aside from the already existing features, the iPhone 3G will be coupled with GPS capabilities which means you can find out where you are now able to perform tracking and positioning. Also, you can find the quickest route to the location you want to go.

Actually, for the GPS feature that allows iPhone menggunakkan Google Maps API to be implemented into the iPhone. The problem is, so far Google Maps has a poor support for the map of Indonesia. Perhaps that is the reason why Indonesia is not included in the list of iPhone launch date of July 11, 2008 in 70 countries. In Asia, the iPhone will only go to India, Japan, Singapore and other countries including the Middle East.

In addition to using 3G which enables extremely fast data access, even approaching the speed of Wi-Fi, additional features of the iPhone also penetrated into the software. Update this software allows developers to develop their own applications that truly integrates with the iPhone (instead of Web Apps). At the Apple WWDC event preview it in 2008 and at the "iPhone Software Roadmap" a few months ago, the iPhone is very possible to be able to run games with graphics that may be juxtaposed with the PSP and other portable consoles. This is because the iPhone uses Mac OS X as the base operating system is also used on computers besutannya, Mac.
