どんどん進化し続けるiPhone。同時に、それを持つ人口も増えているようですね。iPhoneだけではなく日本の携帯電話も、本来の電話としての機能よりもカメラやゲーム、テレビといった付加機能が充実し、“電話”ではなく電話もできる“携帯端末”ですね。
W杯南アフリカ大会が開催されている今、私個人もワンセグ機能を大いに活用していますが、iPhoneや他の形態電話に今後さらに新しい機能が追加されることはあるのでしょうか。楽しみな半面、追加するべく機能がまだあるのか不思議な気もします。

 

 

Lesson 23: New iPhone Features Extra Camera / VIDEO Script

Al:
John, are you still thinking of investing in an iPhone. I see that Steve Jobs has just launched the 4th Generation model. This has come hot on the heels of the iPad launch; I wonder if it’s going to sell as well as the iPad. They certainly went like hot cakes.

John:
Yes. It’s turned out lucky for me that I didn’t go ahead and get one when I first wanted to a couple of months ago. But rumours were rife even then that a new model was waiting in the wings. The launch date is June 24th, just over a week away, but Softbank are still keeping mum about it.

Al:
Yes. I suppose they are still hoping to catch a few suckers with the old model, but I think it’s really dumb to buy an old model when a new one is being launched, especially when the new one incorporates so many improvements. Have you read the article on the Japan Times web-site. I think this is really an impressive smart-phone.

John:
I did read it, but I’m a well established Apple fan. I have an iPod touch, and now I couldn’t do without it. I’m giving it to my wife as soon as I get my new iPhone. I’m really looking forward to using the web features when I’m away from my home or work Wi-Fi. The new screen and fast processor as well as its great looks are also very attractive features.

Al:
I’d love to have one myself, but I’m not sure that I can justify the cost of the 3G web access; I already have mobile access via my net-book. It’s the new High Definition video camera and the front camera that really appeal to me. I love seeing the person that I am speaking to. It’s almost as good as true video conferencing. I must admit that I am really tempted.

John:
Well Al, if you’re a Farmville fan, there’s a new App that will allow you to play on your iPhone, and you’ll also be able to download and read iBooks. That’s a part of the new operating system, iOS4. How do you like that?

Al:
I like it, but sadly you still won’t be able to stream or buy Movies or TV shows in Japan. The big corporations are strong enough to block that. But I’m still looking for ways to justify buying one. It’s just so cool.

John:
I couldn’t agree more.
