iPhone Launches June 29

Apple on Sunday launched a trio of new iPhone ads that have confirmed the official June 29th release date of the company's inaugural cellphone. Each of the ads features the black background and a hand holding the iPhone for a clear demonstration, similar to the original iPod nano ad from September 2005, and focuses on key features for the new touchscreen device. "Never Been an iPod" touches on the device's advanced media player functions along with its ability to take calls, while "How-To" demonstrates the device's ability to manage Internet and media tasks. "Calamari" shows how the inspiration of a movie can lead to finding a restaurant in Google Maps.

No new information has been confirmed regarding the device aside from its release date, although all ads showcase a new waterlily wallpaper image that replaces the clown fish image borrowed from Mac OS X Tiger. The iPhone remains on track as an AT&T exclusive to sell at prices of $499 for 4GB and $599 for 8GB when part of a two-year contract.

    I have three places

    . . . to order mine. Apple, Store, ATT store, and on line.

    One thing that's NOT going to happen is me standing in line. Whichever lets me buy one without the line will get my $599.

    firmware update anyone?

    Just so people cannot say "last day of June" or "first of July", 6/29/07 is the date. I am sure there will be firmware updates and plenty of dropped calls.

    So the store that no one goes to is the one you go to? Could it be that no one goes to because they have lousy service?

    Seems obvious to me the place to be sure you won't have to stand in line is on-line.

    Great Ads!

    I think these ads are much better than the Mac Vs PC ones - they show how good the product is - I was impressed and I had been completely indifferent to the iPhone up to now.
