what innovation?!!!!!!! lg was the first company to make this type of phone! duh~~~~~ apple!!! what a copy!!!
After reading some of the comments here, I simply wanna laugh at some of the pointers that a few readers pointed out, especially Alex_tan... and my gut is telling me that he is a Singaporean like me. I cannot control myself but just laugh...
Well... first... let us do some math here. 400 or 500 USD isn't that expensive for a phone. Look at the price of SE P990... isn't that expensive as well? Back to what Apple has come out with to impress us all, the design / form factor, well-thought OS and functionalities do govern that price tag.
Maybe due to the fact that I am living in Singapore, HSDPA is not important at all... we have free WIFI throughout the island by 2008 and surfing the web will be a breeze, anytime and anywhere. As for 3G, it is so obvious why Steve and guys left that out for version one as it is not picking up well right now. We all have 12 calendar months to spare till the next update and it is gonna blow us all away. And that includes a higher MP camera.
Personally, as I am working as a designer, I truly find it sad that people ain't willing to pay for design. Look at that device, it is one of the best looking product that we see in the market. It is of no copycats like some major mobile companies are doing to each other with their phone design.
So let us chill and see how this phone can make our lives better. BTW, how I wish I am staying in the States.... I love this device to bits.
I think your just in denile about apple's innovation compared to that of microsoft
but LG alreay launched exact same concept phone with prada case a month ago.
I'm not saying it is dodgy or anything I just hope it will last longer than what some iPods did. It has many amazing and useful features and does look really cool. I still wouldn't say 'goodbye to Nokia Nseries' because knowing Nokia they'll have something up their sleeves.
Brilliant!!!!!! For those who are longing for true innovation this is for you. Yepeeeee!!. Steve Jobs and Apple deserve an award!!!
Could someone point directly to a linke on the Apple web page where it says the iPhone as a zirconium screen? I don't see anything there.
500 bucks is not that much considering all that ubelievable technology Apple packs in one device ...4/8 Gb,3 1/5 inch video,wi-fi,2Mp,quadband,16 hrs itunes playback, no pointr, Apple's legendary reliability etc etc..and there's simply no other product that would match beautiful integration of OSX..i guess if you never owned a Mac, you woldn't understand(no i dont work for them, just a machead).My guess is that cingular will experience high demand in June.
Apple welcomes new era in telecommunications, the first 30 years were just the begining, welcome to 2007
The iPhone is the most sophisicated Mobile in features + Design wise.
Goodbye Nokia N series
I'm suprised that Apple have even bothered with the iPhone because after all the bad reputation with the iPod. For example; the screens break easily and that the HDD sometimes stop working.
I won't be suprised if this phone is so successful because all the fashion guru's will love it. Still think twice before you buy.
P.S. Everyone I have known who had an iPod said they would never get one again.
What's interesting is no one is mentioning a card slot. This thing would be over the top with an SD card slot. It would solve the lack of GPS and make it future worthy, and have "unlimited" storage.
I agree with most of you it needs to have 3g. Another thing is, if that is the way it is, it going to be havy. IPods are usualy have devices. But in general this device is nice and finaly it will be available in states
Why all the people here compare everything to NOKIA. Nokia phones N95 inclusive is not anything compared to this iphone by Apple. This would be a rev. product and probably when the second product maybe iphone V2 comes out, you all who said negative stuffs about this phone would have your jaws dropping..
Alex_tan168-the first part of the message was for you. Not the how much it is.
I wrote back a little that the screen was made of zirconium and you were wondering if it is made out of a durable cristal.
Go to the iPhone page (Apple) and read about that zirconium technology, if you want to know more.
Very true. Sorry but the phone is nothin too special. No love lost for Apple and thier products tho. Thier first model; obvious there's more to come :D Wish there was a way to put iPhones touch-screen on Nokia's N95 phone :| now that would be sexy! Check it out, and holla back on your opinion on which is better :)
on the news it says this phone is going to be 500 for the 8gb and 400 for the 4gb coming out soon in june 2007
Plenty of things to criticize, but really, one of the most innovative products to date.
a good phone that also looks very good .. the memory is so good on this . it might be expensive i dont know and you lot stop arguing look at the new ipod nano. its about the same as the old one .
Good grief! Some of the comments here are spectacularly dumb! "It's too expensive, it has no 3G, the N95 is better looking(are you blind?!)" Jesus! For the first time ever we see a proper, let me repeat PROPER handheld computer. It runs a proper grown up OS. It has ample storage bigger than anything else right now. I appreciate that English is not the first language of people around here if people only bothered to properly read the article they'd all realise it's only for starters. There IS a 3G model due. They don't use 3G in the US, so why launch one first? Anyhow, the interface is ground breaking and yet it has a similar battery life to other fully featured phones. Great! Nokia wont worry just yet. Neither will SE however MS and their dumbass Mobile 5 is now dead. HTC should panic.
