The iPhone is a multimedia and Internet-enabled quad-band GSM EDGE-supported mobile phone designed and sold by Apple Inc. The iPhone's functions include those of a camera phone and a portable media player ("iPod"), in addition to text messaging and visual voicemail. It also offers Internet services including e-mail, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity. User input is accomplished via a multi-touch screen with virtual keyboard and buttons.
The iPhone has been available since June 29, 2007 in the United States from Apple retail and online stores, and from AT&T Mobility. It is currently offered for US$399 for an 8 GB model. On September 18, Apple announced in a special event at the Apple Store (retail) Regent Street that iPhone would be available on November 9 on the carrier O2 in the United Kingdom, priced at £269., to heavy protests about the lack of 3G network.
