Apple iPhone is real and coming to Cingular
When it comes to specifications, it is capable of global roaming quad-band GSM with EDGE data and supports WiFi and Bluetooth v2.0. One of its greatest drawback will be the slow data - it lacks 3G. A 2-megapixel camera is situated on its back, which is also not cutting-edge technology by todays standards.
The software title list includes Google Maps and support for mobile Email, with Yahoo! Push email support, which works similar to BlackBerry push email. The phone is multitasking device, and you can listen to your music while downloading email in the background. Apple use the slogan "Touch your music", as the touch displays gives rather unique way of searching through your music library, by switching the albums through their covers.
The navigation is acccomplished through the phone's display, and on its front it has only a single Home button, that brings you to the home screen. The left side houses a ring/silent switcher, and volume control keys. As a music phone, the iPhone has 3.5mm stereo jack for pluging your headphones, and on the bottom it also has iPod's standard connector, which will probably make it usable with most iPod-designed accessories, like the Hi-Fi for example.
As this is an iPod phone, it will be available in two versions with 4 or with 8 GB of integrated memory, which will be respectively $499 or $599 with 2-years contract with Cingular, which will exclusively offer the phone, starting in June. Later in the year, it will also be available in Europe.

Why Cingular? This phone is built for data, and cingular data is so slow its ridiculous thank god they only have exclusive rights for 6 months then maybe they will go with sprint for the fastest data speeds out and then it will be a real deviceso just wait 6 months after its release and you will be good.

Uhm check the stats Sprint's "Data Speeds" (I quote them because they shouldn't even be considered fast) are tons sloer than Verizon's. Hopefully they'll drop it on this CDMA network so the phone can meet it's potential. The IPhone will have 2 different versions, 4 gig and 8 gig, and it's not 799 for either.
