In January, Steve Jobs announced the much awaited tablet- Apple iPad. Yesterday, at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco yesterday, the world saw the word’s thinnest smartphone: the iPhone 4. Apple’s new baby has new features and the renamed iPhone OS to iOS. (Makes me wonder about the proprietary name occupied by CISCO for operating on the operating system of its routers, Cisco IOS).
