Apple announced on Monday that the iPhone will deliver higher talk
time than originally expected. The iPhone will feature up to 8 hours of
talk time giving it the highest battery life of any other competing
Apple's new phone will also deliver 6 hours of Internet use, 7 hours of video
playback or 24 hours of audio playback. The iPhone will also feature 250
hour—more than 10 days—of standby time.
The company also upgraded the screen on the phone from plastic to
optical-quality glass. The new upgrade gives the phone a
scratch-resistant screen and better visibility.
“There has never been a phone like iPhone, and we can't wait to get this truly
magical product into the hands of customers starting just 11 days from today,” said
Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.
Apple's iPhone measures 4.5" x 2.4" x 0.46"
and weighs just 4.8 ounces. All input is entered via the device's 3.5"
Multi-touch display which features a screen resolution of 320x480. The iPhone

The iPhone is set for
release on June 29 at Apple online and retail stores and select AT&T
