The iphone need's internal gps big time, along with a2dp and a better camera with auto focus and a flash.
so ipods are 50/50 with reliability. not so good eh....so hows the reliability on a 1st generation apple iphone? i sell both ipods and phones. i wanna know if these are reliable at all? i know people are going to say they are but still, all the signs are there that they would be really having to work hard to make it reliable. 1st gen apple product...not looking good to me. points against it so far.
nice looking if a little boring seeing as its basically the touch. lacking some pretty standard features that im sure a 2nd or 3rd gen will have. id wait.
more of a question than a statement. opinions?
I'm not sure i lik this phone tbh, i mean it does have some serious faults. Looks nice i'll give u that.
And how easy is typing on the virtual keyboard?
Hey Tsepz_n81, what do u think of the iphone? ;)
Are you a frequent traveller? If so, do NOT even consider iphone. If you store a phone number without +44 (for those of you that live in the UK) the incoming caller is recognized. if you input the number with the +44 prefix so you can easily call people while abroad NO recognition. Ridiculous. Futhermore, when you are abroad some networks display the caller's number with 00 instead of +. Again no recognition. This phone is only for those Americans who only know their little State and no other part of the world.
If you have 1.1.2, you cant forward SMS..But if you have less version, so you can, but you will get tomuch freezing...I hate it
Volume to low, you cant hear any thing, also ring tones are saks..
does anyone know how high the volume of the i phone is and if i can put any song from the i pod thats on the i phone as a ring tone.
The HTC Shift is not a phone,its a UMPC, id love to see you pick it up to your ear when you answer a call
anyone have any info about the locoGPS and where how to buy one? (website,homepage etc.)
it's scheduled to be released on February for about $89
ps. it's the gps gadget for the iphone that would work with the google maps
Not quite truth. htc shift no a2dp, no gps, 1.3 meg for the camera. Come on, even the iphone has a higher meg camera.
to nj3. 5 million iphones sold. Didn't thd back street boys sell alot of cd's or spice girls, therefore they must be good. This is your stupid argument.
This seems to be a "the N95 is so much better than the iphone" forum. But, the thing is, the N95 is a ugly bulky, boring phone. It's like comparing a Lexus to a red mini with the british flag on it's roof.
hi.evrryone i have the iphone its good but the prob.is the rington so bad and you can't get any ringtone that you like from any fone you have 2 buy it from itune store and th2 prob is if you buy it unleagel you can not ubdate software from itune and the mic is law wen you play songs its non like the ipod ..so its not the must good mobile ithink the nokia n95 8gb is more good than the iphone
For the I g norant guys that roam around this forum, to help them understand the Iphone concept and reality :
Wired magazine has a particularly revealing article which details some of the history of the iPhone project within Apple and its unique effect on the wireless industry. With the introduction of the iPhone, manufacturers are racing to produce more phones that appeal directly to consumers rather than to carriers.
Wired manages to get some previously unknown details about the origins of the iPhone project. It began back in 2002, soon after the iPod, when Jobs realized that the convergence of mobile phones and music players would force Apple to get into the mobile phone business.
Apple originally partnered with Motorola which resulted in the ill-fated ROKR iTunes phone, which appeared to be doomed from the start:
Jobs likely knew he had a dud on his hands; consumers, for their part, hated it. The ROKR -- which couldn't download music directly and held only 100 songs -- quickly came to represent everything that was wrong with the US wireless industry, the spawn of a mess of conflicting interests for whom the consumer was an afterthought.
In February 2005, Jobs secretly met with Cingular executives, including Stan Sigman. Jobs presented a three-part message to the execs:
- Apple had the technology to build something truly revolutionary, "light-years ahead of anything else."
- Apple was prepared to consider an exclusive arrangement to get that deal done.
- But Apple was also prepared to buy wireless minutes wholesale and become a de facto carrier itself.
Despite the promises, the iPhone project was a major challenge for Apple, requiring over $150 million in development costs. Apple also took extraordinary measures to keep the project secret, with hardware and software teams completely separated, with only 30 people having seen the full device by the time it debuted at Macworld 2007. The decision to use a modified Mac OS X wasn't immediately obvious, and Apple engineers had even seriously considered using Linux.
Other interesting notes from the article:
- The iPhone's codename was P2, short for Purple 2. Purple 1 was an abandoned iPod phone project.
- Apple engineers had spent a year working on touchscreen technology for a Tablet PC. (no other details available in the article)
heyyy.. can anyone tell me if i can put my own sim in my iphone or do i have to use the sim that comes with it.
Can any one tell me.....will i be able to use the phone as a modem....so that i can surf internet on my laptop ......and will it be fast..
" other than the iphone, i said OTHER than the iphone, what other phones use multi touch because, although hypocritical the touch screen on this thing is far better than any other touchscreen ive used "
There is`nt and the viewty is hard to use like u say. Those scroll bars down the side of the screen where u have to use a stylus is terrible, I originally bought one hoping it would be every bit as usable as the iphone but its no where near. It went back after a day.
I think apple will have the patent on the multi touch and the flicky screen thing but im sure some of the big manafactures can get around that.
