iPhone details 'confirmed' by Kevin Rose

As our "geeky sister" blog Engadget is reporting, Digg founder Kevin Rose (no relation) has announced iPhone specs on his podcast. While you might take most iPhone rumors with the customary grain of salt, this is the guy who called the ball on the iPod Nano prior to His Steveness' introduction of same. We'll reserve judgment for now, save to note that this wee Frankenphone, yet to ship or be announced, has Bear Stearns anticipating six billion bucks of revenue for AAPL in '07. Such is the power of this fully operational iPod battlestati-- I mean, ecosystem.

The nitty-gritty from the podcast, via Engadget:
  • Extremely small form factor
  • Two battery design (with single charger) -- one for playing music, the other for phone functions
  • Flash memory: 4GB for $249, 8GB for $449
  • "Slide-out keyboard"
  • Possibly touchscreen
  • Likely launch with a 'singular GSM carrier' with CDMA and other GSM to follow
Hang those iPod Socks by the chimney with care; we'll hope that the iPhone soon will be there. (Just so long as Michael Bennett isn't waiting in my front yard with a .38.)
