It has some really cool features like the proximity sensor which deactivates the screen when the iphone is held near the ear to prevent accidental presses.The most striking is the phone's 3.5 inch touch screen with "Multi-touch input " which means the user can navigate via finger gestures over the display , the screen is capable of detecting multiple touch points rather than a single point of contact .This feature allows the phone to recognise gestures such as a pinching motion with the fingers to zoom in and out of an image .

It's so cool!There's no keypad,a multiple-touch screen,it reorients the screen depending on the way you are holding it,has Wi-Fi and did i mention how cool it looks? It also makes calls after all its the apple's version of the mobile phone-The Apple iphone.
