The iPhone blends a revolutionary touch-screen interface, media player, and smartphone into a slick package.
After waiting in line, spending $600, signing a two-year AT&T contract, and activating the iPhone, we decided that the next sensible action was to take the thing apart -- in classic TechRepublic Cracking Open style. Get a look at the hardware inside the 8GB iPhone and see whether we got it back together in working condition.
It took an entire weekend, but AT&T finally activated our iPhone on Monday morning.
According to Apple's iPhone Technical Specifications page, the iPhone measures 4.5 inches high, 2.4 inches wide, and 0.46 inch deep. It weighs 4.8 ounces.
The iPhone has a 3.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen multi-touch display that offers a resolution of 480-by-320-pixels at 160 dpi.
