1. iPhone

1.1. Pro

1.1.2. Computer capability internet surfing - It has an html-based safari browser with support for photos and videos.

1.1.3. It's an iPod - You can store up to 8GB or 16GB (depending on the model) of music, podcasts, audio books, photos and videos - copied over when synchronized with your Windows or Mac's iTunes software. But, unlike previous iPods, the iPhone has a built-in speaker.
