i think apple is screwing its chances of selling the iphone to potential customers around the globe. i dont know why they are taking such a looong time to launch it worldwide!!??? besides as for people who can afford it, they would have bought it already from the grey market!! now when they drag themselves to places like india, their employees will already have the phone!! lol!!!
steve time to buck up else it will be no surprise if it totally flops in india!
Let me get it right :
O2 pays Apple revenue sharing to have the IPhone Exclusive in the UK
T Mobile in Germany does the same to have it for Germany
Orange in France
Telefonica in Spain,
Prime telecom companies that understand well the EUROPEAN business.
Yet the usual disinformed complainers suggest that there are better phones available like the N95 or some " decent phones" from Sony Ericsson ??????
Why is it that no telecom in the world is paying revenue sharing for ANY device but the Iphone ?
Could it be that it is indeed something new that is changing the rules and opening new horizons for all of us ?
It is PROGRAMMABLE has an excellent UI and it is a lot more than just a phone and yes it will fire up COMPETITION so the other
guys will get moving !
And we will all benefit !
What a fantastic device it is!
simply mindblowing, yesterday got a chance to play with him, one of my friend bought it, its a F***** awesome phone, the interface, the functionality, the looks, evrything is realy SUPERB of it, im going to buy it very soon..
Two thumbs UP!
i have seen a really good presentation of the handset and it looks amazing...im surely looking forward to it!
i hope the battery life is good!!!
How is battery life on this device?, anyhting that needs recharging daily is not worth buying.
It's a brick! Lovin the phone, but the dimensions are a bit bulky for my liking. I heard something about a nano version in the future?! True or not I don't know. Let's hope Apple aren't tight with the memory in future, 4gb/8gb isn't exactly great for a protable hard drive with phone and media player built in. It's the first of it's kind and a great gadget... although I'm prepared to wait a year or two for the next generation.
The iphone has lousy phone feaures. The conversation quality is mediocore, the sms sytem is unworkable, and mms doesn't exist. But don't worry, Americans don't use any of those mobile features anyway. Apart from that the iphone is a great PHONE!?
tebz - you made me laugh! "Poor Apple"? What advertizing costs? It's all been free press? And with upwards of 40% of their revenue coming from deal with the mobile networks themselves, Apple's laughing it's way to the bank. Son, spend a little time in business school before posting next time, m'kay?
Apple should not have entered the mobile phone arena...it's a pity...all that presales and advertising costs...they would have been better of giving all advertising costs to charity..poor poor Apple...stick to music devices and pcs okay!
is there any way to download messenger(Yahoo & MSN)Thanks.
This phone is a BOM.
Well here in the US, we don't actually care a lot about 3G.
There are many 3G phones, but nobody buys them.
People here need the phone for calls and E-mails, so what's the point to waste money on pricey 3G devices. To do what, watch TV and have video calls?
80% of the people here use Bluetooth headset and they keep their phones in the bags and pockets.
And iPhone is perfect.You just didn't try it. It's totally different experience from other phones. This is not just a phone.
I think you are just jealous because you have to wait a long time for it :)))))))
Its official!! The first U.K. network to get the iphone is o2. It will be released on the 9th November.
hmmmmm, vert sceptical about ipod. cant believe that it has only 8GB and 2mpx camera. and where is 3G? does not americans know what we use here in europe?! and all that fuzz about it. no thanks, Apple, not now.
kathy i reccomend you heed the advise that has been given to you use this site to look up phones and specs to decide if a certain phone is for you.
i agree with tordrumguy read it post it i am guessing you were able to get on this site not becouse you have internet at home in fact you probably live in bangladesh or something like that but the fact bangladesh opened their first internet cafe whoooopie
the iphone is a great device revolusionary is a word that springs to mind how ever i guess if you are wanting one purely cause it is ipod with a phone and camera well see ya
hi. just got my new iphone. its unlocked and working perfectly well here in hongkong.
but i have a question: does your youtube work? mine does not even if im connected with a hotspot.
also, it does not work with my nokia bluetooh stero headset.
"Does The Media Love Apple Too Much?"
This is Phone is really cool but where I live we will have to pay a wooping $7000.00 for it so there is no way I will every see myself spending that kind of money on a phone and half of the features aren't even available down here so that's my opinion but trust me there are alot of people down here who can and will buy it!
its extremely user friendly, nothing too complicated, but it has one major flaw.
use it for 5 minutes, and it becomes the smudgier and greasier than the roof of the fryer in macdonalds. And trust me, its not my hands, everyone i know has streaks along their iPhones.
Just, go get a decent sony erricson and save yourself £100.
