Regarding the price, AT&T is actually being quite generous this time around in return for upping their fees on canceling iphone contract to $325 (up from $175). If you are do for an upgrade this year (this means you have had your current phone for nearly two years) AT&T will allow you the upgrade price which is the same as the new customer price of $199 (16gb) & $299 (32gb). For all other users on their current contract depending on how much you have spent on your phone bills AT&T MAY offer you an early upgrade to the iphone 4 for $399 and $499 respectively, even if you just upgraded two months ago. For everyone else in the USA looking to purchase the phone without contract it is $599 & $699.

Opinions are good, only if they are honest and not meant to destroy. Not all opinions are good :)
Pirate, 12 Jun 2010We all hate piracy my friend but come on, how is bluetooth for piracy ?? U can download songs ... moreAs I have said. Let's be honest here. Bt is mainly used to transfer media files. That's the truth.
If you are concerned about file transfers. BT is not the best way to transfer files. MMS and email are. I am not totally discounting BT as a tool for file transfer, but sadly, people usually use it to transfer music. It is not a major loss not having bt file transfer on a phone. Bt headsets are enabled on the iphone. Tethering is also available on the iphone. It's only bt file transfer that's not.
It's no trick. Apple has been very open with their strict rules on piracy.
Battery life has always been and will always be an issue with smartphones. Multitasking will quickly drain any smartphone's battery life. Apple found a way to provide multitasking without quickly draining battery life. There is nothing wrong with that. It's actually very smart.
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2010Which smartphone is thinner than 9.3 mm?I was looking for myself and so far no smartphone is thinner then 9.3mm. Samsung 19000 Galaxy is 9.9.That must be the 2nd thinnest.
Pirate, 11 Jun 2010Watch the keynote ??! We saw the keynote and its full of iphone and apple product praising .. ... moreI know what good marketing is and I know that Apple does a good job at it. That is part of having a good business. But any good business cannot live by good marketing alone. Good marketing can only carry you so far. Consumers will catch up. The iphone has been out for three years now going in on their 4th. Good marketing alone will not have that sustaining ability.
The iphone is indeed a cool device and it is indeed the thinnest smartphone out there (for now). It also has the highest screen resolution on a smartphone, and that is the truth as well. And those present at the keynote have been attesting that the iphone's display is indeed brilliant. So how can you say that they are trying to fool anyone.
And honestly, how can you even have the readers take your opinion as a fact when you havent even held the iphone4? And you say that you don't hate the iphone? Hypocrite.

uurrrggghhhh u haters .....u're just focusing on apple's shape that has no benefitt and wtsoeverrr (just try to find me a mobile that has this engineering brilliance!!....y u're ignoring the other stuff ???!!! did u forget the A4 processor ?? ,did u forget the gyro and the accelerometer??! , did u forget the retina display??! , have u noticed the popularity iphone 4 has??! although it has been announced for less than 1 week ??!, add to it the ios4...anywayyy if u don't like it haters buy anythin' else and satisfy urself and we dnt want ur comments
iPhone 4 will fail, hands down. Due to the fact that Apple didn't fulfill many important requests from customers, iPhone 4 won't see a quarter of the sales of the iPhone 3GS. Most consumers aren't going to fall for the over-hype this time. Once several, credible reviews begin surfacing, word will spread regarding all of its short-comings, and people will look elsewhere for a true smart-phone. It's pretty clear to see that this device is going to be nothing more than a big let down.
i listen My friendly mobile fell down land Broke glass Screen Few apple Iphone 4 broke glass yes few .. it Not Good.. fail problem it
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2010Which smartphone is thinner than 9.3 mm?This is one of the best phone websites and your asking me ? Lol just go any brand and filter ur search by 9mm in thickness, ull get ur results :) so u can see how they lie on people, and since when did thickness matter just put it in ur pocket and sit in a wrong way and the screen will break. As long as the phone sits in ur palm nicely and comfortably, and it must be comfortable on ur ear while ur talking on phone unlike the iphone which has a boxxy edge to it which annoys u while talking, I know this a small detail but its and important one.
This is my opinion and an advice, if u don't wana approve it then its ur choice.

Don't use them outside, you can't see the screen in bright light.

U can download songs out of torrents for free, why would I download one single song each time on bluetooth when I can download hundreds on the net ?! ..
Bluetooth use is for file transfer e.g. Pictures, Office documents, ringtones, captured camera videos and anything in the phone that u want to transfer, its ur freedom to transfer and its ur device which belongs to u that u bought by ur money.. So why take that away ?? :s bluetooth is also used for headsets and connecting with other gadgets and lets not forget internet tethering .. I don't think that comes anywhere near piracy mate.
See they just trick u by very misleading reasons that have no sense, I don't know how people believe it, WAKE UP.
Ya and that reason of no multitasking they gave us before, it drains battery life -_- .. Multitasking was ages ago available and the battery was alright after 1 year use.. Its no excuse and always misleading to make u believe it.. This an ADVICE if u agree then do ur research again, if u don't just ignore it mate.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010even in smartphone sale apple is no3 after nokia and blackberry worldwide! you pigOf course nokia would still have the most market share on smartphone sales. They have multiple smartphone released in 1 yr. Same with BB. Apple only has 1, yet it was able to land 3rd place. That is more impressive.
Watch the keynote ??! We saw the keynote and its full of iphone and apple product praising .. If u studied marketing ull know what's a marketing strategy means.. And specially Apple's marketing strategy which tries hardly to show u that its product is the best and sends u a hidden message that manipulates ur mind to buy it and think its the best by its looks. An example ?
If u saw the keynote then ull see Jobs each time saying "isn't that cool ?" "The most beautiful and precise thing" "the thinnest phone out there" (which there are thinner smartphones if u knw the smartphone market)..
Watch the keynote and see how he praises the iphone each time. Don't let Apple fool u people ur way smarter than that.. Not just getting deceived by good looks that have no benefit, as I said looks are for the eye to see not for the product to function.. And that tricks so many poor consumers into it ..
NOTE: This is my opinion and its a fact, and this is just an advice to all people who read this. I don't hate Apple and as I said before I've used lots of Apple's products, but this is my advice to u consumers. Best regards.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010Wow, you expect the maney sucker apple company to offer you with free decent stuff out of t... moreApple does not control their customers or anyone at all. Apple have reasons why they do business the way they do. If you don't support their beliefs, don't buy their products. It's as simple as that. Here's a point. Apple does not allow bt file transfer to discourage piracy. Let's be honest here. Bt file transfer are mainly used to copy media files. Apple is against that. Artists and app developers need to get compensated for their hard work. A lot of customers are opportunists. They like to freeload on apps and media files. If you are a freeloader, then Apple products are definitely not for you. There people like me who support and understand Apple's beliefs and values.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010And why do you mock the iphone's new display? Have you seen it in person already? People who... moreI don't think people are complaining about the display. It seems people (scientists) are complaining about Jobs use of the term "retina display" to discribe the iPhone 4 screen in his presentations to market the iPhone4. From my understanding, Jobs says that the "retina display" on the iPhone 4 is at such a high resolution that the average person cannot distinguish individual pixels under normal conditions. It seems the scientists' criticism is that the term "retina display" means a display that someone with perfect eyesight cannot distinguish individual pixels. (Please, forgive me if my terminology is not perfect here.) A true retina display must have a slightly higher resolution than the display on the iPhone 4. If you crunch the numbers, you realise that the iPhone 4's display resolution falls short of the definition of "retina display."
I think that Jobs is not using the term "retina display" correctly. He is trying to get across that the average person cannot distinguish individual pixels on the iPhone 4 under typical conditions, but there just isn't a term for this. "Retina display" is a catchy term and is close enough from a marketing stand point, I guess. He could have use a more accurate term like "near-retina display," but this term just doesn't sound as cool.
