The Apple iPhone is three devices in one: a cell phone, a wide-screen iPod with touch controls, and an Internet communications device. AT&T (formerly Cingular) is the lucky carrier in the United States.
Both Apple and AT&T stores started selling the original iPhone on June 29, 2007. The second-generation iPhone 3G went on sale July 11, 2008, and by the end of the year Apple has promised that it will land in 70 countries. With a two-year AT&T contract, the new iPhone 3G is $199 for the 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB model.
As usual with Apple gear, the iPhone breaks some design boundaries. Say goodbye to traditional cell phone buttons; the iPhone is all touch screen, all the time. With only one hardware control (a Home key), iPhone's real estate is dominated by a huge, 3.5-inch display. Inside you'll find an iPod music and video player, a full Safari Web browser, a 2-megapixel camera and integrated support for Google Maps. And yes, it makes calls too. Read our full, rated iPhone review for the whole story.
