Apple Announces Cards: Send Real Post Cards from iPhone

Apple announced a new product called Cards, a service that allows you to design and send a post card on your iPhone or iPad. Once you have created a Card, Apple will print it on 100% cotton paper and physically mail it for you. The company made the announcement at its “Let’s Talk iPhone” event in Cupertino, a low key product launch for the much anticipated event.

Apple also said that it will affix postage to your post card that has been custom designed by Apple. In the U.S., the cards will be mailed through the U.S. Postal Service, and it will cost you US$2.99. Outside the U.S., the price will be $4.99.
