Apple iPhone Gold edition

T he British company Continental Mobiles has been selling exclusive mobile phones and iPods online since September 2006. Gold versions of various mobile phone brands and models are being sold. In addition, Continental Mobiles offer various mobile phones with embedded diamonds. All purchases are delivered with a so-called 'Gold Card', which stands for the exclusively British manufacturing of the product. Even though the Apple iPhone in itself is already a unique device, the combination with the additions of Continental Mobiles ensures that you, as a user, are guaranteed not to meet a similar device. The iPhone, much-discussed even before it came out, had a lot of people in suspense for a long time, after all it is not just a mobile phone. The iPhone features a sleek design with various innovative functions, as we are used to seeing from Apple. And of course, the user-friendliness and the stability of the well-known Apple products can also be found in the iPhone.

First impression of the iPhone mobile phone

Opening the package of most purchased Apple products already gives you a good feeling. Even in the package you can see the design. This is also the case for this 24 carat gold iPhone; every single detail shows care, a lot of care, and it suffices to say this is the ultimate mobile experience! The iPhone is displayed full-sized on the package inside the package, and all the items are separately wrapped. The iPhone lies in a hard-plastic stand on which 'designed by Apple' is written. Standard included are: a data cable, a battery charger, a headset, a docking station and several user's guides. The Apple mobile phone is slightly on the large side yet has a beautiful hand-fit.

Touchscreen on the Apple iPhone

The Apple iPhone features a large 3.5 inch touchscreen with a resolution of 480x320 pixels. There is only one button on the front, the so-called 'home button'. Other than that, the iPhone is entirely operated by the touchscreen; if you want to call, send text messages or navigate through the menu; everything happens through the touchscreen. The touchscreen Apple used for the iPhone is heat-sensitive. You can't use your fingernails or a stylus pen to operate the screen. Nevertheless; the screen is extremely sensitive which makes using it a pleasure. Thanks to this, the mobile phone responses very fast, which enables equally fast typing as on physical buttons. Compared to current touchscreens, the touchscreen of the Apple iPhone belongs to the top. Even outside in bright sunlight you can still read the screen without difficulty. The fingerprints that stay behind on the screen may, however, prove to annoy you after a while, since you have to operate it with your fingers, but wiping it clean now and then does the trick.
