You have to check out this great iphone clone from china called CECT p168. If this unit had wifi, it would blow the iphone away. Just do a search on youtube and you should find a ton of videos.

Ok, you have to have the data package to be able to get your own itunes library from the phone, it can't even send a picture message, the operating system is almost a full gig, so if you get a 4 gig, you're really getting 3, it's VERY slow on the web unless you're on wifi. no GPS, no radio, you have to use the awful apple earphones because the input port is too deep for all other headphones, no push e-mail unless you're gmail or yahoo. "Oh, but omgzwtfbbq it's touch screen!!!!" give me a break, this phone is one of the most expensive PDAs (if you can call it that) on the market and it is by FAR the least powerful. I work for at&t and i refuse to sell this piece of garbage. The blackjack is $100 and on the 3G network which is 7 time faster on the web than the iphone- plus you get all the reliability of a samsung.

iPhone will be launched in next 20 days here in U.K. but I am skeptical to go for it due to so many rumours.
I guess you guys are using it, can you give me a rough comparison of O2 XDA and iPhone.

I bet they call the ability of installing 3rd party apps "revolutionary".
How can one still believe in Apple (iPhone)... :D

Why did Jobs approves to have a third-part application?
Is it because their sales were low.. and the last thing to do
is to admit his faults and fix it.

Don't get me wrong I do love my iPhone but COME ON APPLE, This should have been done so long ago! And for a music phone this has the worst speaker that I have ever heard in a device EVER. I would have thought being a music device they should have maybe put stereo speakers in it for a starter! Ringtones on this device SUCK, Who wants a car horn for a ringtone? I think the next iPhone model should be the same but... Stereo Sound, 3G(with Videocalling), 3.0MP Cam with Video and MMS.

the iphone is awsome but the ipod touch is even cooler. Make 3rd party apps so they can both be 1 million times cooler.

lmfao, which iphone is the best, i guess who said that never saw brands like nokia, sony ericsson or samsung, i'd rather buy the motorola v3 before the iproduct.

poor cam, dont support 3rd party(not yet), no radio, no video recording and the list goes on, i say no more, use your head buyers.

I encourage all 3rd party developers NOT to write any software for this supposedly superior model. Have apple do all the work since they are 'superior'.

Down with the iphone!
