US firm Apple has confirmed its move into the telecoms industry, unveiling the long-awaited iPhone. Users will be able to download music and videos with the phone, demonstrated by Apple boss Steve Jobs at the annual Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
Mr Jobs praised the phone's design and told the audience the "magical device" would "revolutionise the industry". The phone, which will cost from $499 (£257) to $599, will be launched in the US in June and Europe later this year.
Apple is not yet saying how much the iPhone will cost in the UK, but using the comparison of a Mac mini computer the 4 gigabyte (GB) model would be about £335.
Also revealed at the Macworld Expo was Apple TV, a device to stream music and movies from a computer to the living room. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6246063.stmhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6246063.stm
