The iPhone Era Infographic :

The history of the iPhone line of phones began with Steve Jobs' direction that Apple Inc. engineers investigate touch-screens. At the time he had been considering having Apple work on tablet PCs, which later came to fruition with the iPad. Many have noted the device's similarities to Apple's previous touch-screen portable device, the Newton MessagePad. Like the Newton, the iPhone is nearly all screen. Its form factor is credited to Apple's head of design, Jonathan Ive.The iPhone was released in the United States on June 29, 2007 and made available from the Apple Store and from AT&T Mobility, formerly Cingular Wireless. 

On July 1, 2007, it was reported that Apple paid at least US$1 million to Michael Kovatch for the transfer of the domain name. Kovatch registered the domain in 1995. That URL now redirects to Apple's iPhone page.

Coming Soon Nearest To You ! Amazon Tablet

Amazon is very close to  launching a "Tablet" and entering into the Most Exciting and Challenging technology  market

Amazon's reportedly one-panel tablet may be heading your way in the second half of 2011, according to  industry sources. This device is reportedly being made by Taiwanese manufacturer Qanta and will have an LCD screen made by E Ink Holding, the company behind the Kindle's display. Amazon  hopes to sell new tablet  through its vast " distribution network" and monthly orders for the device could go as high as 700,000 or 800,000 at peak season, according to DigiTimes.

DigiTimes, which covers the Asian device and component markets, shares the news today, did not specify on the hardware  details of Amazon’s potential tablet, Given Amazon’s core competencies of cloud, usability and data synchronization, it is natural for Amazon to be " seen as a very serious Competitor: to all the ipads and  Galaxy Tabs. 

Amazon would use such a low cost tablet, possibly in the range of $200 to $300, to extend its current web services, including thousands of books from the Kindle Store, movies and TV content from Amazon Instant Video and music from its new Cloud Drive digital storage locker.

There is also  confirmation that  the new Amazon tablet will run on Google’s Android operating system. The company has already launched its own app store for Android apps, providing a free app daily and an assortment of curated, high-quality titles.

Amazon  meanwhile has also built its Amazon Appstore for Android to rival Google's Android Market and recently unveiled the Kindle application for Android tablets,  to expand its e book business.
That this project is being taken very seriously by Amazon is validated by  Businessinsider reports that Amazon is already trying to hire more Android people. As Nick Bilton noticed at the New York Times, Amazon's Lab 126 division which makes the Kindle -- recently added at least five new jobs for developers with Android experience.
