The apple phone has finally come out… I won’t go into too many details here except that it is a Quadband GSM (850,900,1800,1900mhz) phone that has 4gb ($499) or 8gb ($599) of flash memory installed.

Of course it is also a music and video iPod that can be viewed vertically or horizontally. It is LOADED with features. Also includes a 2mp (slightly disappointing) camera. Web browsing is via the Safari Web browser that scales webpages to be viewed (again horizontally or vertically) and is able to zoom in on portions of heavily content intensive pages.

Widgets are present in their full desktop glory, email looks very functional and contacts and most likely bookmarks sync with the host machine (not sure about Windows boxes).

It looks as if it is running an embedded version of Mac OS X.
