The place where I live at least 30%~40% of iphone users are ladies.

By the way, Apple doesn't use programs. They use apps. yes eveyone knows it. But apps are actually widgets. Thought it might be useful info aince there is a big difference between the structure of widgets and programs.

The iPhone isn't the best phone, but has brought about a revolutionary way of targeting most consumer groups into one phone. Capitalising on touchscreen/multi-touch (not saying it's the first to use it), sleek design, great web browser on a phone, and the Appstore. These are I believe the crux of its success.

It's a great phone, but I prefer my Xperia more, anticipating about WinMo 7.

guys i have tried all touch phones and the only that doing what your finger press are htc diamond 1 and 2 and of course iphone which is the best for me not for his camera but for his simple os it is a enjoyable phone.if you want hd pictures and videos take camcoder or a digital camera.we are talking about phones and the phones they will never be digital cameras why?because if thry do the companes thry make camcoders and cameras they will close.buy a phone that you like and have some thinks you want better and dont try to find the super phone.

Iphone will always be left behind by other phone like samsung, se, motorola and lg when it comes to technology features because it relies on others technology. The chip used in most on apple products are manufactured by other company like samsung, motorola, intel, philips and sony. The reason why lg, samsung at sony ericsson always introduce cutting edge features is because they manufacture their product inside out. I am not surprised why samsung still manage to stand out in this recession period.

If you don't like the new iPhone then don't buy it. Apple has its own market. There's no point in comparing the iPhone to other phones because some are music-centric, others are camera-centric, while some are for games, and others are for email and internet use. And I think that is something MOST of the people here do not understand. They only try to bash and praise their phones to feel GOOD and HAPPY when in fact some don't even have the money to buy a new iPhone. Bitter peeps!

Iphone, a great subject to talk about...

You guys can say anything but i go for both sides, i been changing phones every 3 or 4 months since i was 18 or 19, i been through every brand you name it, Siemens, Nokia, SE, Palm, Motorola, HTC, LG, i even remember mi small Panasonic 55.
Symbian, Windows Mobile, Java, Safari, anything.
I was running a cellphone store with my best friend because it was the thing i enjoyed to do, every release it was like a new baby for us, we will play with it and talk about it for hours and then sell it...

I remember the first walkman phones that hold 512 mb or 1g.
Mi nokia 3300 hold 512 mb, and i still have it, my startac, just naming a few.

And now what? Last year i had my Omnia with 16g built in and a 16g sd card on it. (One of the best phones ever made, and the best Windows Mobile Yet, (In my opinion)

That's me, Erick Rosas 23 years old live in the US waiting for the good stuff to come, with a E71 on my hands with a front camera for video calls which i can't use because we don't have the technology to do so... (Stupid)

Man, iphone... new era, it changed the way we look at phones, thats true, even though i dont agree with all the iphone fans or freaks however you guys call it...

I was impressed when it was on my hands, playing with it was a pleasure, the super sensitive screen, it was something different, but nothing new though.
I mean my htc phone was far beyond the iphone capabilities, mms, 3.2 megapixel, 8 gigs capable, record video, bluetooth stereo, document viewer, web browser, and gps software built in, also cut & paste, everything you name it.
So far every brand go beyond the iphone in phone capabilities, and they do it better, mms? we had it what 5 years ago? cut and paste, probably 4? 3.2 camera? my C905 has 8 (I know its a cybershot but still... GPS built in? i think it was 2 years ago, video recording?? i dont remember but its been a while lol.

Anyways we can't talk bad or good about the iphone for life and sorry guys I'm a SE fan, then Nokia, but apple is been doing a great job, they gone beyond the brands we seen growing great for the past years, this race is not what phone has more features, is who's making more money....

Guess who's the winner, the apps are awesome, the games are unbelievable, and they're really useful, its just crazy ridiculous what's out there, and even though we still miss features on the iphone 3gs, dont worry they'll came on the right time, apple has to save something for the next iphone 3gsbs(bluetooth stereo), or 3gsvc(Video Call), what ever...

It's just amazing how apple plays with advertising in my country, and the sad part is that i know friends that spend all his paycheck on a stupid upgrade or having the 32g iphone when they only use 8 gigs the most.

It's like everybody must have one... go ahead guys throw your check on the new iphone 3gs and make apple richer by day, i know their sales are going to be great by the end of this month, but that's only because ignorant people fall for been cool.

I can keep going all day writing about it but thats it, i gotta pick up my new omnia hd and play with a real phone, feel free to throw your opinion at erickrosasrojas... gmail ...com

Peace out and good luck making line outside apple stores or att stores because lines are going to be long...

This phone might have a matte screen, according to some photo's of an unboxing at endgadget.

This might tie in with it's oleophobic property.
