All these new features wouldn't matter if the battery is still crap.
There are a lot of ignorant people around, the iPhone does multitask with native applications and always has.
A digital compass let's GPS software know which way a phone is facing so the orientation of the map on the screen can be adjusted accordingly.
You know the Nokia sports tracker, how it keeps track of how far you've run or walked using GPS?
What happens when you're doing your workout on a treadmill in a gym?
Enter Nike which measures distance based on movement of your shoe.
Can some one please let me know if i-Phone is compatible with only a few specific brand of blue tooth headphones or head set or is it compatible with any brand of blue tooth headphone or head set
I love the anti-apple here, "no secondary camera??" ROFL ok dude, no multi-tasking?? that's ok I want my battery to last more then 5 hours, have fun with that.. oh yah you can carry a 2nd battery everywhere with you HAHA, oh and the dig. compass is actually a very cool feature if you bothered to read up on it and see the application use... Some people are just stupid and they all seem to post here =D
The T-Mobile G1 (Google) phone I have, has has the digital compass for months! Also, a spirit level. And the full original PacMan game, all free. I have over 20 apps and they're free. That said, Apple has the best games, like gold and The Need For Speed. I iPhone-3GS is what it should have been in the beginning, and it is definitely a winner. I may buy one.
I already own the Blackberry Bold and the original Samsung Omnia(5mp camera), so am thinking that maybe this time, I'll try an Apple.

This is the same as the 3G just upgrade the software to 3.0 and there you go iphone 3Gs
Sure Palm Pre is better than this, but any phone nowadays is that as well. N97, Omnia HD and Satio (all flagship Symbian Touch phones from the world's 3 biggest phone companies) completly blow both Iphone and Palm out of the water.
No radio, no card slots, weak video recording (if at all), no secondary camera, low screen resolution, no multitasking and locked sim-card and battery (Iphone only) are some huge lacks, disadvantages, and drawbacks, which any of them I certainly wouldn't stand out having in my Symbian phone.
Sorry Palm, sure you did a good try, and indeed defeated the 2 year old Iphone tech-wise, but shouldn't you have higher goals than that???
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009What's the idea of calling a phone "3G", and not having a video call option???The uses the HSPA network to transfer data. 3G is not only intented for video applications.
Hey people! This device is built for Iphail. It's even more expensive than the N97, and we all know which is better quality wise!!! Insane fanboyism is the only reason to buy this phone.

hahaha this POS phone has 5 year old features, it's for 3rd world countries.
Thanks to these wonderful reviews, i will go ahead and buy the Palm Pre today, matter of fact im leaving rite now to do some multi-tasking on the Palm Pre. Apple lovers, get over it! theres a new lover in town, Palm Pre!

and if u get unlimited plan = 99chf/month plan u just pay 29chf for iphone 3gs
lol iphone sales must be doing poorly
this was gna b the decider for me between the new iphone and the palm pre. now without a doubt i will get palm pre. they only put a compass in the phone. wtf do i need that 4? i can read maps. a slightly faster processor and slighlty longer battery life, yet they exclude the ability to multitask. and they hv convinced the remaining iphone fans that multitasking is bad, it drains battery life. "shockingly" they hv not thought of just not multitasking if they dont wna drain battery life. the least apple cud hv done was use an AMOLED display - this wud also help the battery life. but no. they will continue to introduce about 2 features at a time so every1 who owns 1 feels they need to get the next 1.
the days of apple being creative and coming up with interesting ideas r over.
