Apple released several commercials on Sunday touting the features of the iPhone. They can be viewed on the Apple web site. “Calamari” shows how to search for local restaurants; “Never Been an iPod” demonstrates album searching, watching videos, and taking a call; and “How To” shows how it works. The fine print near the end of each ad says “Use requires minimum new 2 year activation plan.”
The iPhone will be available on June 29th, (a Friday? Why a Friday? the last weekday of the quarter?), but supposedly stores aren’t allowed to accept pre-orders or create a waiting list. So you’ll need to get in line the day before if you want one.
Strangely, the ads wouldn’t show on my Powerbook’s Safari, but would play fine in Firefox 2. In Safari I only get the audio, no video. Quicktime 7.1.6, OS X 10.4.9. Safari 2.0.4.
