Digg founder on iPhone
Digg founder Kevin Rose has revealed various details about Apple's forthcoming iPhone in the Diggnation video blog. The new unit will ship in 4GB and 8GB storage capacities for $249 and $449, with flash-based storage providing lower power consumption and a slimmer profile. The phone is said to be extremely small, and will feature two separate batteries to power the MP3 player portion of the device as well as the telephone aspect of the handset. Separation of these two batteries will enable consumers to listen to music without fear of losing phone connectivity. The phone, according to Rose, will feature a slide-out keyboard and a touch-screen face. Additionally, the phone reportedly works with all major phone providers including T-Mobile, Cingular, and Verizon with support for all major standards including GSM, TDMA, CDMA, and Spring PCS.
