Showing 2 medical-based applications. First, The first is a learning application for remembering the names of parts of the body. They will have dozens of apps available within weeks of the App Store launch.

Looks like the potential for learning apps is huge

Its clear that Apple want to hit the mobile gaming device sector of the market, so the thing will potentially be an encyclopedia and a gameboy in one.

Games and apps will be auto updated by apple

MobileMe is exchange for the rest of us - an active sync between mac, pc and iphone - both ways -
Works over the air. Changes are displayed immediately. Works with Mail, iCal, and Address Book on Mac. Works with Outlook on Windows.

Color coding and drag & drop events is supported as well.The gallery app allows for drag & drop too as well as live thumbnail scaling like in iPhoto.The iDisk app allows files to be sent to people right through the app.

Mobileme replaces .Mac

6 million iPhones sold - they ran out a few weeks ago...

iPhone 3G - Even thinner, black plastic back, solid metal buttons, same gorgeous display, camera, flush headphone jack, and dramatically improved audio.

Comparing download speeds between 3G and EDGE. 3G finished in 21 seconds. EDGE finished in 59 seconds.

300 hours of standby, 2G talk-time now has 10 hours (as opposed to 5), 5 hours of 3G talk-time (most phones only have 3 hour 3G talk time), 5 to 6 hours of high-speed browsing, 7 hours of video, 24 hours of audio.

GPS support now integrated into the iPhone. Data from cell towers, WiFi networks, and now -- GPS.
