Kudos to Steve Jobs for sucking the absolute life out of the wallets susceptible apple fans year after year without fail,and doing it while convincing them think your doing them a good deal. This man is a legend in his own right, either its marketing of manipulation, hes done it in style. Where in history can you possibly think of an other example of a mass mind buying into a product which is massively dearer but does nothing more if not much less than its rivals,funny all the same.
they have released the i phone prices in England and tariffs and it is a rip off, £175 and then to get a decent line rental you have to pay £40 a month on top of that. Plus apple are setting the pricing and tariffs not the phone companies and they are still doing it with the other models, there is something definitely illegal going on. This is definitely contrary to anti competition legislation, why isnt anyone suing them

Get with the times.
from Colombia., 17 Jun 2010I would like to highlight the fact that NOKIA N8 has better camera, bigger screen, better reso... moreThe N8 has the same sized screen at LOWER resolution, 640x360 almost every smartphone available today has higher.
It's got a slower processor.
And tired old Symbian first used on the Ericsson R380
Nokia weren't even the one's to introduce Symbian, they had to copy Ericsson then it took them eight years to add a touchscreen.
Besides YOU CAN'T GET an N8 until the end of the year.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010Dude, look yourself in the mirror before u post. Foxconn is the CHEAPEST factory in china. You... moreWell guess what, Nokia phone's are made in EXACTLY the same Chinese factories owned by Foxconn.
You've used a poor argument, so why don't you go source the parts and make yourself a phone.
Hey, just think your car was made from a few dollars worth of rocks, "What a rip off, from the mining, refining and manufacturing companies.
It's confirmed. Iphone4 has 512mb of RAM. That equates to smooth running of apps, smoother web surfing, even smoother overall phone operation, and smoother multitasking. Awesome :)

Peter, 17 Jun 2010I dont get people who pays for appls like fart app, shut up app, :D and so on!! All Iphone fan... moreWho said we have to pay for fart apps. And who said that we need to have it. I for one never loaded those kind of apps. There are tons of useful apps for free from the App Store. It's obvious that you have not even tried it, lol. And don't lie. The iphone never hangs. If it does, it's very, very rare.
[deleted post]Hey at least with iPhone's YOU HAVE TO PLUG THEM IN to a computer running iTunes, guess what EVERY TIME you do that it makes a BACK UP of EVERYTHING on your iPhone.
So if you lose it, it get's damaged or you get a new one you ALWAYS have a back up from the last time you synced it.
Then people whine "Why do I have to plug it into iTunes", as if it's a bad thing.
That is not true about everytime you acces app store they charge you. The only time you get charge is when you purchase something for its face value.
I used all brands of phones and found good in each one of them. I waited until over half a year after apple launched the 3G because I refused to buy it cause it lacked everyday things that other cell phones did normally. But I gave in because i knew you could hack the Iphone and get these other options. So I did.
The Iphone is the best cell phone that I ever used and I bought the 3Gs and gave my 3G to my wife, and now am waiting for my Iphone 4 already pre-orderd and will retire my 3gs to my wife. They came a long way and fixed all the stuff that was not there in the past. Nothing can compare. The Iphone is an all around phone that you can be happy with. Apple does it well. Once you go Iphone, you will never go back!
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010You don't understand the logic of paying for media files and apps because you're a cheap freel... moreI dont get people who pays for appls like fart app, shut up app, :D and so on!! All Iphone fans screams how mature they are - but they buy childish stuff!! :D And the funny part your best device hangs more then any else- oh sorry maybe because I didnt flashed it :D
Some people like iphone,others prefer nokia,sony ericsson,samsung,moto,blackberry etc.
all people except the iphone lovers,stick to your desired devices,pls don't blame this phone... if you don't like this phone,get the hell out of here...
by the way this iphone could have done much better in terms of connectivity,features & compatibility... a whole new bunch of features are available on this phone,but some essentials are still missing,the app store is there but it charges everytime you access it... hope iphone 5 will be the first & best compact smartdevice of the apple company...
all the best steve jobs...
Everyone stop this.If u want a hd camera/camcorder,go get one out of the plenty,for web surfing & media synchronization,there is a regular computer for you,& for gaming,get a highest-end graphics card for your computer,honestly,all iphones are mere nothing but to style & show off,if you have enough bucks to afford that,go get one out of 4 or 3,simple... but just stop arguing on which one is better & which one is outdated... technology is open & almost everyday a few new things are invented... this is a place to post our opinion about this iphone,not to quarrel or blame other devices & people... peace...
smoochy, 17 Jun 2010Imagine buying a car and then being told that because you want to use the passenger seat you h... moreWhat a dumb metaphor.
Even with cars you have to pay extra for getting more extra features. You would pay more for a spoiler, a navigation system, bigger wheels, bi xenon headlamps, etc. Notto mention you have to pay gas whenever you run out. OS updates on the iphone are free. With cars, you have to pay for its scheduled maintenance. Plus, you pay monthly insurance as well. So what now, huh?
kapil, 17 Jun 2010well APPLE sucks and so does iphone 4g. they have comeout with 5MP camera when soon even 12MP ... moreYou don't understand the logic of paying for media files and apps because you're a cheap freeloading scavenger who only copies files and apps from other people :)
