The iPod presentation

There isn't anything new in this video clip. I just take it here to have the information in one place for future needs. The presentation is smooth. Nothing too complex. Everyone can understand. The product looks good on the stage. The multiple touch screen seems to work. Moving through the files seems to be easy. Jobs says, "This is a revolutionary product."

The rest of the industry is not going to wait for the new device to hit the market without counter action. There is four months to the introduction. We'll see how people vote with their wallets. Apple has a group of enthusiastic followers. The company isn't going for the global market, yet.

US will be a test marketing area for six months. The iPhone will be available in Europe before the Christmas sales. The price is high. There are millions of questions. But there is certainly a market for this device. I guess, 3G will be available soon, maybe already at the end of this year. Apple didn't tell all there is. This is a first run. Edition one.

The impact on traditional phone design and manufacturing is going to show up soon. Lots of old-style projects will be cancelled. We're going to see a re-organization of phone design. LG has already told about its cooperation with the Prada Design house. That happened only a few days after the Mac World congress.

Nokia is welcoming Apple. It's not going to shake the global leader on a short term basis. But Apple can hurt Motorola in US. The home market is important for Motorola. Nokia's home markets are China and India. US is still a big question mark for Nokia. The real challenge is: what should Nokia do in US? What is the killer product for the US market? Let's wait and see.

"iPhone is a revolutionary and magical product that is literally five years ahead of any other mobile phone," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We are all born with the ultimate pointing device—our fingers—and iPhone uses them to create the most revolutionary user interface since the mouse."



iPhone is a Revolutionary Mobile Phone

iPhone is a revolutionary new mobile phone that allows users to make calls by simply pointing at a name or number. iPhone syncs all of your contacts from your PC, Mac or Internet service such as Yahoo!, so that you always have your full list of up-to-date contacts with you. In addition, you can easily construct a favorites list for your most frequently made calls, and easily merge calls together to create conference calls.



iPhone's pioneering Visual Voicemail, an industry first, lets users look at a listing of their voicemails, decide which messages to listen to, then go directly to those messages without listening to the prior messages. Just like email, iPhone's
Visual Voicemail enables users to immediately randomly access those messages that interest them most.
