“The Internet in your pocket.”

That’s what Apple promised the iPhone would bring to the public when the product was announced in January 2007. In the years since, Apple has come tantalizingly close to delivering on that pledge.

For years, the cell phone industry offered a watered-down mobile version of the Internet, but their approaches typically fell far short of what people had come to experience while sitting in front of a computer.

Apple, however, has managed for the most part to replicate the real-deal Internet with the iPhone. Web pages on an iPhone look like web pages on a Windows PC or Mac, right down to swanky graphics and pictures — and at least some video and web-based games.
