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.
Nice style, nice web side, but you know ? this is 2008 and 99% people using MMS, REGULAR BLUETOOTH, VIDEO RECORDING AND SHARING, FORWARD SMS, GPS, and more.Iphone missing all this, and that's why most people hate it..But i dont hate it, it is good, but missing allot of nice future's..I know they sold allot, but i heard there is big line for Return, and most people selling on ebay..Apple must add allot of futures and that time Iphone will be #1 phone for me...
Hey... I don't get why all of you guys say the iphone sucks... Besides the fact that it has no 3g, most of the other downfalls can be overcomed by applications downloadable into your phone through the app tap application by nullriver. And for the comment posted by realistics guy... Yes... I'm quite sure apple would be able to start a revolution... Being that the apple iphone has been voted the number 1 invention of 2007... Furthurmore... How can you compare the iphone with the razr... i mean... its been out since 2005... 100 million sold... Check your maths... according to Bloomberg...apple sold 700 000 phones on july 2... on a single weekend!!! Lets just say... apple will officially release the iphone in asia and all... up production... imagine. Furthurmore... the iphone is so underpriced... affordable to almost all.
I bought one before christmas and was not told that the phone does not send multiple texts, nor does it forward texts. Seems I have signed a contract for 18 months that ties me to a phone that does not do the things I bought it for.
Marks out of 10......3
thanks dude. i coulda sworn i was very close.
maybe iphones r not sold LEGALLY in South America, but i've seen quite a few bro.
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.
but yeah what else uses it? the normal touchscreen such as the one on the LG viewty is just too hard to use
we cannot do this, they check IP's
but we can share information, choose your auction and let me know. i will start bid on it too
Thanks dude. Do what you said. How about to buy 1 membership and then share? What you say?
go to this site http://www.squareauction.com/Winners.aspx?Page=1
these guys have a point. they make money on small admin fees. i recomend to buy their membership as it gives you abilty to sort, which is must have if you are serious about winning. buy the cheapest - bronze membership. i spent about 60 bucks on bidding before i got my iPhone. constantly do sort as it gives you overview of where others are.
i am planning to get their Apple 17'', He-he!
LOL! Must say i thought MAYBE JUST MAYBE the iPhone sites wouldnt be viewable by any other phone,well just used my N81's Safari Web browser got in to http://iphonefanclub.com and all i can say is WTF!!? I was expecting more interesting things in this site!!? Ah well, it remains as an over hyped 'dont'.
