Compare Cell Phones: Apple iPhone

How could anyone compare cell phones without taking a look at one of the most innovative technologies of our time, the Apple iPhone? I remember sitting in a group of people shortly after the iPhone was released and seeing one for the first time in real life. Even though I had seen the commercials for the release and was aware of the product. The very first glimpse of the iPhone provided the WOW factor. It was almost like, what is that. The iPhone was released in June 2007, amidst fan fare and buzz. Lines were literally miles long, jam packed with customers waiting to get their hands on one first.

Apple has been a frontrunner on new and innovative technology dealing with personal electronics in the last 20 years. So it was only fitting that after remaking the computer industry and also the MP3 world, Apple would integrate them both in creating a cell phone that was hard to compare against.

It is hard to go anywhere without seeing an iPod. You can go to the gym, the grocery store, or even just driving down the road, and you see people listening to their iPods. There are also many companies trying to put as much internet capabilities as they can on their new phones. Apple has teamed up with AT&T to try and create the all in one machine, a device that allows you to have full internet capabilities while doubling as a cell phone and an iPod. The memory is still rather small for being all those things, but supposedly Apple is coming out with newer more finely tuned versions of the Apple iPhone. It is going to be hard to compare any other cell phones to it.
