Kitchen web surfing

First it was WebTV. Now the Internet is moving to the kitchen, with another new access point. The new “iPhone” offers a new way to surf the Net: on the phone, combining a standard telephone with the high-tech capabilities of an online Internet device. The iPhone provides touch-screen access to e-mail and the Internet.

The iPhone has all the latest phone features (call waiting, three-way calling, caller ID, and a 100-entry call log) and Internet access through a 7.4 inch touchscreen display. A fully functional QWERTY keyboard is attached.

According to the manufacturer, you simply plug the AC adapter into your wall, a phone line into the iPhone, and you’re surfing the web through your telephone. For a quick information look-up, or to check email, the iPhone sounds like something we’ll all have in our kitchen before long.
