Apple iPhone

Worst kept secret in years but the fact that it runs OS X is pretty neat. Multi touch interface as expected from earlier patent discoveries, decent res screen(3.5 inch @ 160ppi I think he said), 8GB storage, 2Mpixel camera, 11.5mm thick, no buttons, accelerometer on board for more control interface fun, GSM Phone with GPRS\EDGE data, EDR Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g WLAN. Much more info at Engadget and Apple.

Gonna have to get one I think.

Edited to add: The screen is definitely not what normal folks would call a widescreen format - it's a 3:2 ratio so it has the same aspect ratio as NTSC at 2/3rds the resolution.

Yeah, putting a grownup operating system on a phone was definitely right. Good job, Apple Inc. The rest was a bit of a disappointment, though.

I don't want a new phone December 2008. I want a 120Gb iPod now! A 8Gb phone thingy next year isn't gonna to cut it. I've an upcoming birthday to think about.

That intelligent stylus device might be nice too but won't it smudge up the display?

Actually quite disappointed by the keynote. I loved the Apple TV and the phone was looking really cool until he said 8Gb and $600. They're gonna have to do better than that.
