Latest iPhone video shows more features close up
It shows the various buttons and connectors on the iPhone, including the iPod-like dock on the bottom, the sleep/wake button at the top right, headphone socket, and volume control on the left-hand side.
The iPhone is turned on by pressing the sleep/wake button, and can be put into sleep mode by pressing it again. Pressing and holding the button and then confirming by swiping the slide bar on the screen will turn off the iPhone.
The video describes synchronising contact information with a PC or Mac, and the ability to use this information in other iPhone applications such as Google Maps.
The iPhone's stereo headphones include a volume and track advance controller. If a call comes in while listening to music, iTunes fades out the music, the ring tone sounds, and then the music fades back in when the call has ended.
The demo shows Safari being used, as well as the email client, which can handle both rich text / HTML messages, as well as being able to display Microsoft Word and Excel documents, as well as PDF documents.
The iPhone handles SMS messages as ongoing conversations, with an interface and look very similar to the AIM / iChat interface.
Notice how little the virtual QWERTY keyboard is used during the 20-minute video, and how short the demo email reply is. I don't think you'll be writing long responses on the iPhone, no matter how well it works.
