Kisky Netmedia has researched all the reports, the stats, the apps and the blogs so you donât have to; pulling the information you need into one easy to read report. It contains âeverything youâve ever wanted to know about iPhone but were afraid to askâ!
âThe iPhone: its sleek design, always-on connectivity, enterprise support, application platform, quirky third party apps and the fact that itâs made by Apple keep the iPhone in the headlines. Those who have one say theyâd never go back, and the iPhone wins hands down in comparisons with other âsmartâ phones. The iPhone 3G is even more popular than the original iPhone having already sold over 6m units.â the report begins.
âItâs intended to offer a guide to the iPhone platform; the basics for busy business owners, strategists, technologists and developers who know that iPhone is an important opportunity but perhaps donât have the time to find out all the information themselvesâ explains report author Katie Lips.
For anyone considering whether to explore iPhone; either in terms of developing for iPhone as a new business strategy, or as a new platform for engaging with your consumers, it is important to remember that this is still very new.
