iPhone turns into medical diagnostic devices

In Los Angeles, a group of American scientists are developing a new iPhone as a medical diagnostic device.

The United States of hematology and oncology consultant Dr Iqbal said that on the one hand, such a mobile phone installs the most advanced software as a diagnostic device. Patients can store their medical history in the iPhone, then communication with the doctor will be easier, and this will also help doctors make more accurate judgments.

On the other hand, the iPhone's camera has been transformed into a simple light microscope with a filter, and then connect with the computer. Making the use of a professional software analysis, will be able to detect a particular patient's blood cells. All this process can be completed in a several minutes.

The iPhone is an internet-connected multimedia smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. with a flush multi-touch screen and a minimal hardware interface. The device does not have a physical keyboard, so a virtual keyboard is rendered on the touch screen instead. The iPhone functions as a camera phone (including text messaging and visual voicemail), a portable media player (equivalent to an iPod), and Internet client (with email, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity). The first generation phone hardware was quad-band GSM with EDGE; the second generation also adds UMTS with HSDPA.

Apple announced the iPhone on January 9, 2007. The announcement was preceded by rumors and speculation that circulated for several months. The iPhone was initially introduced in the United States on June 29, 2007 and has since been introduced worldwide. It was named Time magazine's "Invention of the Year" in 2007. On July 11, 2008, the iPhone 3G was released. It supports faster 3G data speeds and Assisted GPS.
