this phone is too expensive for no special features plus it is going to be 600 dollars with a 2 year contract with cingular. thats too much for a service like cingular and a phone like that.
If it is as awesome as all Apple's other products then I'll be the first to get one...whenever it arrives in South Africa...hopefully before I die...:)
lots of lacks in this phone i see.
1. no memory card
2. no mms
3. no 3G
4. no hsdcd
5. camara of only 2mp
6. too expensive
man you need to get more stuff into this phone.
I think that a lot of people will think that they will just launch this version and that's it. NO!!! WRONG!!!
They are going to apply the same strategy like the iPod, they will evolve the product and of course they will diversity the offer, more colors, 3G etc.
The iPhone is here to stay and I'm personaly glad of it.
this is the most awesome cell phone
it`s great i hope that i could have it some day!!!!!!!!!!
a phone like this should be targeted for people like myself. Unfortunately it has a couple to a few shortcomings. the first is NOOOOOOOOOOO GPS are you kidding me? NO 3G. Maybe not that important but iphone come on. The last is the push to talk feature. The most important to me is the GPS. I have the hp hw 6515 for over 1 1/2 years just b/c it has been the only phone on the market with GPS. Blackberry 8800 BIG contender.
Steve jobbs needs a better job this phone is copied by bits and pieces of other exisisting good cell phones. You cant talk to nokia and samsung they run it.
i dont know why there is so much hue and cry about 3G, not much people are gonna make good and proper use of it. though the single most important factor of this phone is Mac OS X, if the apple is opening up a way to write custom programs for this baby. its hit among common users and even programmers. the creative possibilities with this phone would be endless.
Havent you learned something with the ipod? its not about 'what it does', its about 'HOW it does it'.... Iphone is gonna win on ease of use.
Lets face it - the UI looks nice but as for being "5 years ahead of everyone?" cmon.
The N95 has GPS, AGPS with built in Maps, WIFI with a browser, 3.6 MM jack, USB 2.0, 5.6 Mpix camera with Carl Zeiss optics, A full ITUT keyboard (all touch is good for USA where people are used to using two hands to text on their blackberrys but in Europe and Asia where people like to sms without even looking it will not do as well). Support for WMA, WMDRM, AAC, eAAC+ (even the N91 had that) - suppport for many music formats not just Fairplay and MP3s (Apple are control freaks that make Microsoft look like Ghandi). 3G, HSDPA, etc etc...
That doesnt seem like Nokia being 5 years behind to me....Jobbs is the great hype artist and the marketing will sell iphones no doubt but let's see if users are willing to accept the fact that dropping their iphone from waist height on concrete ONCE will trash it. (N91, N80 etc were reportedly dropped 300 times on concrete to test the phone...do that with an iphone).
time will tell
You all can just shut up! So what if no 3g?
Its a great phone. I mean come on!
apple is apparently going rule the cell phone market place with this launch. iPhone has borrowed the genes from hugely successful iPod so far no other manufacturer has been able to enjoy the success rate that iPod has had in the portable music player segment. but sucess in india depends on how competetivly apple prices it. and how well can it set up sales network as that of nokia in india .. iPhone has bit disappointed us with the 2 mega pix camera no 3G support, however the absence of memory card slot is made good by 4/8 gb flash... i think the apple will have to come up with a new version immidiately to please the critics and do away with bit large size.... the rest of features are awesome.. brilliant.. () FINGURING () input wow .wow
There is a 2mp camera on the iPhone, however, no auto-focus or flash.
actually its pretty decent in size not that big.. ive seen it on tv with some guy holding it at some apple conference..does anyone know if there actually is a camera on this cause ive never seen a rear view of the iphone
i gotta tell ya i dont know, the whole touch screen thing doesnt do it for me , after a while with rain fingerprints scrathes in pockets its gonna be minced out of it, make it hard to watch videos , i can see an expanded ability one coming out very soon after this one, thatl annoy everyone who bought this version
