I really don't care when the first pda or newton came out. And I don't think a lot of people do either. What most people care about is what a device does now and which device works for them best. I see a lot of people hating the iphone in here and will post a lot of nonsense and impractical comments just to pull it down. Hating is really a bad thing. It messes up one's brain.

Apple hadn't even released the Newton back then, that's where the term "PDA" came from in 1992.
8 years later WinMo was born, it's only 9 years old.
Mitch, 10 Dec 2009I am not bashing the iphone outright, it is a nice phone, it works and that is why I got it. I... moreData plan is part of the iphone. So for you to say that you have the iphone and do not have a data plan that would let you check news anytime, anywhere only means that you have a jailbroken iphone. That is not what iphone's where meant to be distributed. But hey that is your choice. But you cannot make negative opinions of the iphone's services when you got an illegitimate iphone in the first place. Although I now understand why you need fm so bad for news. It's because you do not have a data plan for your jailbroken iphone.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2009I respect your opinion as you have every right to form your opinion and to think aloud. What ... moreThere are times that opinions may count, but there are also times that it doesn't. Like how can you say that other phones can match the iphone's audio reproduction when tests show that the iphone is way ahead in this category. I like chicken, you like pork, but it will not change the fact that pork has more bad cholesterol than chicken regardless of your taste.

Pro, 10 Dec 2009I have an iphone 4 days back after switching from HTC touch pro2. The multitask is an issue in... moreIt's all about managing your time well. As for me, when I talk to my family using skype, I talk to them and that's it. I don't talk to them and check emails at the same time. I think that would be insincere and rude. Although maybe you need to discuss an email with them, so in that case that is understandable. But I don't think that situation happens all the time. Do you need to open your email every time you talk to your family. Skype only works on wifi. If you're on a regular call on the iphone, you can be on a call and check emails at the same time. I just want to clarify that. Because I think it's worst with the the Droid with Verizon. Because you cannot go online or check email whether you're on skype or a regular call.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Real time email notifications will drain your battery fast. It has push email notification that works just fine. A lot of times people don't even reply to emails right away. If real time email notification is your life, then get a device that has it. The iphone does not have it, and users like me don't see that as a dealbreaker, so we are fine with it. Again, it's called choices and preferences by users that you seem cannot grasp.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Have you used the iphone? Your scenarios are very laughable. Why do I need to open youtube and listen to music at the same time? It really does not make sense. And yes, you can be in a middle of composing an mms, get out if to check something online, and the moment you re open your mms app, it opens where you left off just like how phones with multi tasking does it. Same with games. I can be playing a game, exit and check something online, and the moment I reopen that game app, it takes me back where I left off just like what other multitasking phone does. And it works the same with email the email app. And yes, you can view photos while listening to music with your iphone. So I do not understand why you have to force multitasking down our throats. And really, a person can only deal with one app at a time in most situations. I haven't seen any phone that splits it's screen into four so you can play a game, watch a youtube video, reply to an sms and compose an email all at the same time.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970What winmo had 20 years ago that the iphone only has now is really quite useless to argue about. The most important thing is that the iphone has the features that you want. I never had any problems with my email account on my iphone. Maybe because I only have one, and I really don't want to synch my work email to my iphone. Just a choice. My work is not my life, and I believe that I should leave work when I leave the building. But then, that does not work for everybody, and I understand that. My co worker has no problem whatsoever synching his work email to his iphone. Meaning, he has multiple email accounts on his iphone and it works just fine, and that is all that matters.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Apple has not brainwashed anyone. You on the other hand seems to be obsessed by your hatred over the iphone. A lot of users don't need full multi tasking on their phones. I personally think it's impractical. The iphone's UI is designed so well that switching apps is effortless. Now if you think your device needs full multitasking for it to work friendly, then maybe that is what your device needs, but not the iphone. I can switch apps as fast, or even faster, than phones that can multitask.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The iphone has a lot of cool games. You have to consider that the iphone is bought by people of all ages, genders, lifestyles, and tastes. A silly game or a crappy app for you might be fun and smart for others. It's all about choices. And that is something that you need to get into your head as well.
In south asia nokia 5230 is better than iphone 3gs because here iphone 3gs costs $1000 & nokia 5230 $230,both are touchscreen with great os & 3g but iphone sucks no great worldwide market & production of handsets
HD Engr... You are so sour over the iphone... Ar eyou sure you have a life...? You are hell bent on proving that the iphone is bad... lol.. Good luck to you mate...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The iphone is EASILY capable of multitasking better than most winmo and android phones, they disabled multitasking in order to preserve battery life AND enhance performance of the one thing you are doing at that time. I personally thing that they were smart to keep it the way it is, although an option to multitask would be nice. In any case, jailbreaking is an easy solution to those who want to multitask or do anything it can't already do. nuf said.
100,000 iPhones officially sold in China since the launch a couple of weeks ago.
I've seen many people complain about the iphone.
I agree it might not be the greatest phone in the world but i love it. the camera is only 3mp has reasonable quality. but the overall experience of the phone is amazing. i use a jailbroken 3gs, thus have lots of fun apps. on negative side though i'm little disappointed with the battery life it runs quickly specially if you wifi or play games.
