Get your fingers ready.
Apple’s iPhone is leading a new wave of gadgets using touch-sensitive screens that react to taps, swishes or flicks of a finger. The improvements promise to be slicker and more intuitive than the rough stomp of finger presses and stylus-pointing required by many of today’s devices.
Apple has already been showing off its finger ballet in video ads ahead of the smart phone’s hotly anticipated launch on June 29.
Glide a finger across the screen to activate the device and main menu. Slide your digit up or down to scroll through contacts. Flick to flip through photos. Tap to zoom in on a website.
With Apple’s marketing machinery, the iPhone is poised to become the poster child for the new breed of touch-screen technology, which relies on changes in electrical currents instead of pressure points.
But the iPhone will have its fair share of rivals.
The first one, Ericsson T65, bought in 2002, when I was a pool university student.. This mobile phone is quite hard, uneasy to break. I still remember when I accidently fell the phone from my 2-meters-high bed in school doom, the phone hit the ground and bounced up about 1 meter then fell on the ground again, and, nothing happened!
Check this out! It is awesome. See Apple homepage: http://www.apple.com/iphone/继续阅读
