Response to you as well. Can you seriously imagine browsing this exact page with the iphone? Imagine it is on the iphone screen and you want to click on "philips" on the left. Are you sure that the internet will really win everything? I don't know about you but clicking on it with a stylus is far easier than a finger.
And you say $500 is expensive? No it is not for this type of phone with all the capabilities. This phone's function is meant to be compared to windows mobile and symbian phones. Are you sure you know what you mean when you talk about expensive phones? I have used both symbian and windows mobile, how about you? If you say $500 is expensive, you obviously have not used a real smartphone before because they can double the price of this phone.
In response to previous comment-
Driving - you shouldnt be looking at the phone regardless. Writing off a phone for its ability to use in a car is madness and makes me a little angry. Anthing distracts you from driving, even bluetooth headsets. If you want it this this phone will get you to your caller in no less then 3 button presses anyway. If your thinking about ringing someone, your already distracted. May as well go whole way and look at the screen for a split second. Hope you dont kill anyone.
Internet- plenty want internet on phone. catch up on news, sports etc. This screen is huge and with fully functioning browser will be better then anything currently on market.
Music browsing - dont get what your on about. Its same in content as ipod with slightly changed functionality (ie no clickwheel). Whatever your point is... ipod sell well enough, im sure this will be fine on music front!
Application freedom - "like real macs no desirable applications". Well that made me laugh. Macs have an amazing community, with applications for everything a pc would have. There are less choices but they are easily better in quality more often then not. Never once found me wanting an aplication for a pc that my mac could not do anyway. Have you even tried a Mac? If you have you gave up on it to quickly if you have that opinion. As for iphone, apple will control everything and it will all be excellent as a result, few bugs, crashes etc. If its demanded enough and within reason, i have confidence apple will get it.
Camera- i would like an increase to 3mg but really guys, if you want flash photography by a digi cam! i have a k800 and i still use a digi cam over it. Fine for the odd shot, not a lot more. Even 5 meg on a phone is poor compared to actual cameras nowdays.
Photos - so your critiscising the iphone for having the OPTION to view your most cherished pictures and family pictures???? Right, ok.... cant please everyone....
Video content - If you buy from itunes, its seemless. If you dont (and i dont) then do a bit of research, you will have mastered video conversion very quickly. there are a zillion programs out there that do it for you, especially for a mac.
Comparing this to a PSP is daft. PSP is a handheld games console, this is a phone/music player.
Not having a go at ya, but give stuff a little thought. And btw the last thing thats good about it is the price, this is one expensive phone.
Things look flashy and great but seriously think about it. All the flashy features won't be worthwhile. The only good thing about this phone is it's price. It's 500 US and that is cheap for this type of phone.
Dialing: You can NOT one hand dial with this phone when you are driving because there are no buttons.
Internet: You really want to browse the internet with small text and a huge finger? How can you pinpoint anything?
Keyboard: Sure there is a virtual one, but your finger is huge and you have no stylus to pinpoint what you want.
Music browsing: It doesn't make sense??? Who would have MP3's that are official with all the tags and information to place in the phone?? If you have the official thing it would be in CD format. Not to mention this will obviously not support foreign language songs.
Application freedom: There are about 25000 apps for windows mobile right now. That is a huge market. Sure you can develop apps for this phone as well but you don't know if it will have a license lock like symbian OR if it will be like a real Mac, no desirable applications.
Camera: You get it on every phone anyways.
Picture view and zoom: Like you will really look at pictures all the time.
Videos: You don't need me to tell you by now. Converting or sending it to your phone will turn you off for this feature.
There are a lot more flashy things for this phone but it will end up being a PSP. A phone with many features but none of them worthwhile.
i think presentation for this phone is very exciting but i think the missing things such as 3g ,flash, fm radio ,or if resolution is good then camera should be of more megapixels . such things can effect iphones market , but if u still love apple iphine then dont wait buy it
The Apple iPhone is the best phone in the world and i am sure! when come the iphone sure i was get it!
i LOVE THE IPHONE IT'S THE BEST PHONE IN ALL WORLD
this is almost the perfect phone. if only it had video call / conferencing (3G. but hey, it's still great
To be perefctly honest, I don't see anything especial about this phone. I expect from Apple to emerge something exordinary, but seems like we shall wait for the future.
So is this phone out anywhere in the world? Can someone that has it post its problems. I am really intersted in this phone but want to be as sure as I can that its problems would be minimal.
Apple iphone a good mobile set. but there is no 3G funtion in this mobile. It has 3 weak points:(1)no FM radio funtion 2)there is no infra port option & (3)there is no flash for camera & no shutter for protect the zoom. We can say, it is good but not excellent.
new release huh ??!?!!
too bad.. its not 3G yet
thinks first b4 make one..!!! please..
Okay, this I find this funny. People are whining about no QWERTY keyboard... umm... it does have one when you need it. Watch the keynote on the website before you complain.
No you cannot,
for the first time america will be getting a phone before asia!!!!!!!!!!
Please drop the n95 from here,it's a nothing device-Symbian OS provides a good foundation for a smartphone, it offers very little for a computing device.An example of this is the n800 or 770,despite nokia being heavily tied to symbian these devices use GNU/linux
The iPhone is a full software platform demanding support for applications,Symbian series 60 is way off.The iPhone isn't a smartphone as much as it is a handheld computer-remember that!
dude nokia n95 is the best applei phone is nothing in fornt of n 95 not even 10 of n 95
Businessweek April 13, 2007:
"iPhone: Harder to Build than Apple Thought"
"The announcement that Apple would delay the release of its newest version of Mac OS X, known as Leopard, didn't surprise many people. A rumor suggesting such a delay was imminent had been circulating for weeks.
But Apple's(AAPL) Apr. 12 statement that it has redeployed some of its software engineering and quality assurance personnel away from Leopard to the team working on the June launch of the iPhone suggests that some last-minute problems are cropping up and raises questions about whether Apple has had to push back the iPhone release, if only by some weeks."
"It's clear they have found some issues that they need to fix."
