Get to Know The Apple iPhone
With its clean lines and neat profile the iPhone certainly offers a very contemporary look, only measuring 2.4 inches wide by 4.5 inches tall and a mere
0.46 inches deep. The screen is glass rather than plastic and the phone features a state of the art touch screen display, using its size to full
advantage as the screen dominates almost the entire face of the phone. The iPhone has a 480 by 320 pixel resolution, which translates into 160 dots
per inch and therefore is able to produce smooth arrangements, sharp colours and exceptional graphics. By tapping the screen users are able to
trigger functions and network with the main menu. Users can surf the Internet, download and use any one of the abundance of applications on offer,
send emails and tap out messages with speed. The keyboard is very easy to use and there are no problems in hitting the correct key.
The main menu is made up of a series of coloured symbols; these include icons for the mail folder, the phone menu, the safari web browser and the

to magnify the text by pressing and holding over the desired area, you can then move around the text in order to magnify other areas. In order to
zoom in and out, users simply pinch their fingers together or apart, when viewing the web browser a double tap will create the same zoom action.
The handset features an accelerometer, which works as a motion sensor in order to control the phones orientation; this will adjust automatically when
flipped on its side.
