Apple specifies (better) iPhones features (Engelska)
It?s similar as when some gaming studio releases a new game: you need to warm up gamers with interviews, trailers and some other extra content to get a bit more of popularity. Apple does the very same thing with its iPhone - there isn?t a single week without some new information about this hi-tech gadget. The Mac maker has announced that it has boosted the iPhone?s talk time ? an issue that has been worrying analysts ? to between six and eight hours of Internet use, seven hours of video playback or 24 hours of audio playback. Apple said the iPhone will also deliver 250 hours of standby but the company warned that not all users will achieve these benchmarks because actual battery performance will depend on network configuration ?and many other factors; actual results may vary?.
It?s a significant update to the Apple?s original spec. When the iPhone was first announced in January, CEO Steve Jobs promised the handset would offer five hours of talk time, Internet use or video playback and 16 hours of audio playback. The update also means an end to the plastic touchscreen, which will be replaced with a glass one ? in order to prevent scratching. The iPhone is scheduled to go on sale in a matter of days in the US, priced at US$499 for a 4GB model and US$599 for the 8GB counterpart. It?s really bad the price is quite high, and it will be even higher in Europe probably - I?m pretty sure it would become a seller?s dream otherwise?
