Technology!! - Apple iphone

The iPhone is a multimedia and Internet-enabled quad-band GSM EDGE-supported mobile phone.
Wondering what quad-band, GSM EDGE i did. Research by swapna(myself) reveals that:) Quad-band is 4 frequency bands. Having more than one frequency in one device is useful to enable roaming between different countries that peg the allowed transmission frequency at different values or to allow a better coverage in the same country. GSM is global system for moblie communications, this too is for voice quality and international roaming. EDGE is for internet service. Its for increase in data transmission rate and to improve data transmission reliability.

Like other high end moblie phones it has a camera, works like a ipod, has internet services too. Additionally its a visual voice email, User input is accomplished via a multi-touchscreen with virtual keyboard and buttons.

Now guess what the price is? Its around 35k.
