I bought the iPhone about two weeks ago in the UK, initially the 8gb version... I have to say looking at it in the shop was cool enough but when you take it home and actually have to use it as an everyday device it will never cease to amaze you!!! Apple have done an excellent job on the UI, everything from adding a contact to setting an alarm is so easy!!!! Then the 16gb version was released and well... I just had to have it so i traded in on the 14 day policy and paid the difference. Every single person i show this phone too is blown away... Internet speeds are bearable in the UK without any edge or wifi reception and browsing is better than any other mobile device I have ever used!!!! All it needs is flash... My previous phone the w950i has just been squashed into the ground by this, nothing can beat it... Well worth the money!!!
Just remember...this is apples first time at making a mobile, and what a mobile it is...sony ericsson has been making mobiles for years and finally its came up with something to be better as good as the iphone...but has no where as near memory for music, movies and video podcasts...so i believe the iphone wont be killed off by the new xperta or whatever it is called which sony ericsson has just released... also by the time the XPERTA comes out to the market the Next Generation iPhone would of been announced which most likely will have the new 32GB Flash Drive built in with a new Higher resolution camera.....be honest apple is going to eventually become the best mobile company in the world...it will dominate as it did with the invention of the iPod..... Just you wait!.
o.O wt is meant by 'shake to shuffle'
like the SE W580? u shake the phone and it will forward to next song?
btw iphone users, have a question. does ur alarm on the iphone go off, if you have it switched off? mine dont seem to work. or maybe im doing sth wrong...
r u seri0us, h0mes???
if this is all 'true' then this ph0ne is gna b 0ne SERI0US device!!!
"shake 2 shuffle" IS catchy... l0l.
the iphone 2 is in pre-production. I work for a sister company who provide the tft screen technology for the iphone and we have just finalised the last design spec.
We only see prototypes and design notes though i can confirm it is 3G, 32Gb, shake activated shuffle, same size, same width, slightly lighter, video..yes video!
The main marketing will be behind the 'shake to shuffle' and larger size.
Will not be out in States untill summer, Europe just after Christmas break if production deadlines are met.
I applaud Apple for giving the entire industry a wakeup. Now, they can go back to dominating mp3 players or start carving out a niche market with iPhone. Just because it looks cool or is advertised heavily doesnt make it better. The guy next to u might look better than u, does that make him the better man? iPhone was a double edge sword to the industry. It might get worse if companies start getting stingy adding basic feature and develop a close minded philosophy and ecosystem like Apple. Apple didnt invent the wheel. A phone or mp3 player doesnt start or end with Apple. Open your eyes, lookout the 'windows', and use a braincell for once.
iphone sucks? yeah right, everybody wants to copy it lol...
Definitely my next phone.
If you've never play around with iphone, STFU.
Once upon a time long long time ago, Nokia and Sony Ericsson decided to start making mobile phones, and exceptionally good at it they were to, both companies selling millions of phones to us consumers and we were all happy`ish..... The problem was that each year they would bring out new phones but these phones were just slightly better than the ones before, ie: extra mega pixel cam, more memory etc... Nothing really to get excited about.....
Apple then decided they wanted a piece of the pie but instead of just releasing a standard candybar or slider which we`ve seen countless times they decided to go for something completey in the form of the iphone, Steve jobs said it will revolutionise the mobile phone world, yes a bit of arrogant over statement but love or hate it, the iphone has certainly given the phone manafacturers a kick up the.......
"on my 6230, at least you can actually hear the other people on the other side, unlike this phone!"
What are you on about? You can hear people extremely well when talking on the iphone.
Love or hate the iphone the big players are worried without a doubt, hence why SE are releasing a touchscreen phone and that will soon be followed by Nokia.
From a personal view from what i`ve seen from videos of SE`s and nokias touchscreen attempts the Apple iphone definately has nought to worry about.
Ya know, Touchscreen came out long before apple even thought of making a phone!
If your'e saying that the XPERIA X1 copied iPhone, then you might as well say that Apple copied the first phone ever made by allowing it to call people! (even though it cannot call people very well)
i have had my nokia 6230 for 4 years now, and i would chose that over this phone anytime! i mean why pay over $1000 on a phone. i know it plays music and video and web etc, but a phone is a phone. it is used to call people.
on my 6230, at least you can actually hear the other people on the other side, unlike this phone!
apple has focued so much on internet and music on your phone, that it's pretty much taken away what a phone is used for!
if you want a phone, but a phone
if you want an mp3 player buy an mp3 player
if you want a mp4 player buy an mp4 player
if you want internet, buy a computer or a smartphone which at least has 3g.
Who wants a slide out qwerty keyboard, the whole point of the iphone is to do away with stuff like that.
If you dropped it in water and tried to turn it on afterwards it’s too late.
You should have dried it completely before trying to use the device. As to fixing it you will be better off binning it. Because you tried to switch it on before drying it the board will have burnt out.
When XPERIA X1 is released, then apples going down the drain!
by the way, the XPERIA X1 shouldn't be called the iphone killer, it should be called the nokia n95-2 killer.
why is XPERIA X1 better
1.it has qwerty keyboard
2.it has 2x resolution as iphone on only a 3"
3.it has a decent camera
4.it has buttons so you don't need to put up with touchscreen
5.you can actually hear people when you call them! unlike the iphone.
6. the XPERA X1 is only a concept, and works just fine at the moment, apart from the graphics hardware. by mid 2008 many people would agree that when it is released, it will be much better than what we have been waiting for.
7.it's got 3g!
8.a 3.5mm jack which works with ALL headphones, unlike iphone where it only works with ipod headphones (which by the way, many people would agree that they are bad quality anyway)
Taken from another site.... Nokias attempt at touchscreen.
i dropped my iphone in water.
ever since it doesn't work.
any idea how to open it to dry it?
or how to have it fixed?
screen gives a message: charging with battery sign.
anyone can help?
I was poppin' bottles with my buddy a couple days ago and he got some on my iPhone. I dried it off and it still worked!!! I love this phone but the service sucks my left nut.
