Korean CEOs digg the iPhone

South Korean CEOs love the Apple iPhone. They have voted the sleek, shinny PDA phone as the most inspirational invention of year 2007.

In a poll of 590 CEOs conducted by the Samsung Economic Research Institute, 26.4% of respondents chose the iPhone as the #1 item of inspiration among the devices included in Time Magazine's "Inventions of 2007".

The CEOs' choice of the iPhone shows that local business leaders think highly of functional integration and refined design, the research institute said.

From the Apple website:

iPhone is a revolutionary new mobile phone that allows you to make a call by simply tapping a name or number in your address book, a favorites list, or a call log. It also automatically syncs all your contacts from a Windows PC, Mac, or Internet service. And it lets you select and listen to voice mail messages in whatever order you want — just like email. iPhone is available in an 8GB model for USD399 and a new 16GB model for USD499.

Thanks to one of our readers, Belle, here are pictures of the iPhone being used to surf The screen looks amazingly clear!

Yeah, my brother has an iphone and it's AWESOME! It's really user friendly. Internet options are awesome. For example, if you want to watch a video, say on you tube, you can just click on the video and the entire screen shows only the video and nothing else in the background. I thought this was neat as it removes all the extraneous stuff on the webpage without having to choose full screen. Also, other options such as zooming in/zooming out are great. Calling someone is also really easy. GPS is awesome. We used it all the way to LA from SF, California. The entire appearance of iphone is awesome. And, you can hardly get any scratches on it. :)
Now, I'm waiting my brother to give me that phone for myself....I need to learn how to snatch it from

Hello Belle, thanks for the pics! Our site looks so cute on it! Can I keep the pics...and use it on our site if we ever see the opportunity to?

anonymous, sounds like you'll need to buy yourself one of these babies. Your bro might be really attached to it and won't want to give it to you :-).
