Apple's iPhone touts a better battery life and a more durable screen

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 phone. 

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 runs OS X and includes quad-band GSM/EDGE, 802.11g wireless and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity options.

The iPhone is set for release on June 29 at Apple online and retail stores and select AT&T retail stores for $499 and $599 respectfully (with 2-year contract) for the 4GB and 8GB versions.

Man, if I ever ran a corporation, I'd make it a rule not to use any flowery or overly fake-sounding language. I mean, I understand you love your new phone, Steve, but using pretty words isn't more likely to get me to buy one.

Thinking about what you were saying, I have to say: I would be more likely to buy this phone with words like this used to sell it.??. Call me a dumb ass if you will, but it makes me think there could be such a huge step in technology that "Truly Magical" would be the only way to describe it? Not to say I would not suffer buyers remorse afterward, but isn't Truly magical a good description of the very best gadgets?...The first video game, PONG and the very first Cell phones come to mind....

Well, if you want to listen to one, very biased, man's opinion, then go ahead. But until third parties are saying those things, I'm no more likely to buy a given product than I am to start flying like Neo. :P

Yea, using the word "Magical" might catch the attention of individuals who can only go on the kiddy rides at disneyland. Not that they would have ANY need for such a device. More like the plastic kind with candy inside.
