About the title “Openning iPhone Officially”, it does not mean that Apple had just officially released iPhone. Actually it refers that I would like to introduce my iPhone and also to open a new blog category named “My iPhone”. Since a few days ago, I’ve just bought a new iPhone from a famous IT department store in Singapore on April 28th and spent much time to study its underlying mechanism. During these days, I found many interesting techniques posted on Webs and also discovered many techniques (may be not new) by myself. This is my self study and not mainly to discover a new thing. Consequently I think that I should record my study on this blog (javaboom.wordpress.com). I hope that my records could be at least a benefit for my future retrival and also many iPhone users.
iPhone was officially released in the U.S. and unofficially in many countries. Although iPhone was locked and mainly serviced by only AT&T, it has been unlocked by some communities. Thanks to those developers and hackers who made iPhone really be used by people around the world not only in the U.S. Also thanks to Thai developers who invent Thai fonts and keyboards for iPhone. It’s definitely the benefit for a vast number of Thai iPhone users.
My study source on iPhone is from many websites. I also discovered many techniques by myself. Although they may be not new or even not better ways, I would like to present them here as well. I would like to say that this is the category to record my self study not to invent/to discocver a new thing. Thanks to modmyiphone.com, smart-mobile.com, thaiiphone.com, and pdamobiz.com and also those people who posted good techniques encourging me to try many things with more confidence.
The techniques here were really tested on my own iPhone. I proved that they worked (at least by now); however, I don’t guarantee that they will work on every iPhone. In the worst case, they may harm iPhones to be finally unused. So you should be cautious whenever you need to use the techniques. Furthermore they may be not better than others. If you have better ones, you could give me such information via the comment.

Current Software Inside
Let’s see which software are installed on my iPhone by now. iPhone can split its desktop into many pages. Currently I have 4 pages categorized by their types – Home, Information, Games, and System. The snapshot pictures from my iPhone were captured by the program named “Capture” presented on the System page.
Includes most common software that I used often e.g., Calendar, Notes, Camera and Video Recorder, Ditionary, Calculator, etc.
Includes software that give me some information e.g., RSS feeds, E-Book reader, Weather forcasting, Maps , etc.
Includes Games e.g., Solitaire, Minesweeper, Pool, Labyrinth, etc.
Includes system/utillity programs e.g., Terminal, VNC (for accessing remote desktop), SummerBoard (for changing iPhone theme), Capture (for capturing iPhone screen), etc.
On the bottom of every page, there are 4 programs including Phone (for call), Mail (for checking emails), Safari (the Internet browser), and iPod (for waching movies and listening musics)
Let’s see some snapshots taken from my iPhone.
“Short message (SMS) are organized like chatting”
“Check instant e-mails from my mailbox”
“iPhone can detect the movement. The left side shows the music playlists. Whenever I rotate iPhone in the horizontal view, their covers are shown like the right side”.
“iPhone includes a software using to locate our position and to give us a direction from one place to another place.”
