Chris. i looked at the spec's on that phone you asked about. the spec's are still alot better than the i phone and it also has gps. no mention of a2dp for stereo bluetooth headphone's or what is the expandable memory if these thing's are important to you. 2meg camera with auto focus and flash i think i read. how much is the phone. look's like i good phone.
One significanr example :
" A Reuters report indicates that Apple's iPhone has started making inroads with corporate customers despite initial criticisms about its suitability for that market.
Earlier this week, SAP announced that they would be introducing a version of their sales-force automation software for the iPhone before introducing mobile versions for more traditional corporate devices, such as the BlackBerry and Treo.
The reason? SAP's own salespeople were clamoring for it, saying the iPhone was easier to use, according to Bob Stutz, SAP senior vice president in charge of developing customer relationship management software."
Keep comparing specs
Apple tried to work with both Motorola and Nokia, but they both knew best, motorola just replaced their CEO in recent daysas Apple s now beating heavily Nokia in the high end marketplace we shall have fun in the upcoming months, the Iphone is NOT the most popular phone, there are so many other models more popular, what the Iphone is doing is changing the rules and reinventing mobile communication altogether, but it takes a better than averagee mind to understand this game and where is going to end up,
not only comparing specs.
Call back one year from now....
No doubt than when Nokia will have OSX inside one of their phones
they could make a better phone than Iphone......
Until then, sorry.........
to unbiased. that is my position as well, i want the best phone which is the n95 not the most popular!
at the moment, features wise iphone cannot match the n95. thats not saying that it wont down the line. it will force nokia and the others to lift their game and produce more powerful and sophisticated phones. the iphone has some great features but lacks in some places that make day to day use harder. noone wants just a phone these days. everyone wants a camera,video,mp3 internet etc all in one. convergence is the key to the future success of all phone companies. The iphone has been a good launch pad for apple but they still have a long way to go in regards to making a good all round product. its no good just throwing in bits and pieces and relying on your name to get you through. you all go back to iphone sales as well. thats great for those people who have shares but your shares are only good for you if you have people buying more of your product in the future. if you do not cater for what the people want, you lose sales and your shares go down. by all means gloat if you want to but dont rest on your laurels, it is still early days yet. apple have also marketed very well. just cause more people buy the iphone that does not make it the best though. it may make it the most popular but i'd rather have best than popular.apples big test will be when they release their 2nd and 3rd phones. at the moment the iphone is used to show status quo. it will be interesting to see how apple handles the competitors release of newer products to combat the iphone.
apple have shaken up the phone industry. hopefully they learn from the mistakes made with this phone and produce a newer phone with all these little features missing etc. the day that apple produce this is the day i leave my n95. until then im very happy with my n95. if you line them up side by side and look through the glitz its easy to see which one is the best all round phone. hopefully that will change
Two million people and growing like it and the OSX is the largest mobile operating system on the planet.
THE N95 IS A FAR BETTER MUSIC PLAYER THAN THE IPHONE.
-unrecessed 3.5mm jack
-music store you can download from without wifi
-very loud and clear stereo speakers.
the iphone has
-recessed 3.5mm jack
-mono, quiet loudspeaker.
-No digital radio (over a 2g network, HA!)
-itunes store only avaliable through Wifi (why don't you use your home computer then??
the iphone falls short!
i got all application in my iphone like sms forwarding,contact earch with name ,lock box and lot of application .....i stay in mumbai if ne one want can contact me at mobail number 9820283832 or email me .....thanxs
iphone is d best for me okiii bcu'z the wifi and youtube music vid is a very good features like n95 5mpix wla nmn gnun kgndang progrm im not satisfied bcu'z last year my phone n95 not good 4 me its boring phone......
if you happened to be without a charger with the i phone and your battery was right down , you can't just pop in a replacement battery, but this would work with the n95.
my understanding is that you have to pay for your music thru i tune's on the i phone. no voice dialing on the i phone, with my bluetooth while driving i don't even have to touch my phone to make a call on my n95. don't forget there is no a2dp with the i phone for stereo bluetooth headphone's.
ok, IM BACK!!! lol. "KING OF PHONES" vs "JESUS PHONE" cont'd.
don't get me wrong, the iPhone's camera is still pretty good esp. if you compare it to let's say, the t-mobile wing(also a 2mp cam). on the wing the pictures that you take INDOORS has a "yellowish" tint but the iPhone's pictures that come out looks more real and "life-like." but when you compare that to the N95-2, well then, there you'll see the difference! pictures that come out of the N95-2 are more CRISP, and CLEAR as expected out of this 5mp, carl-zeiss optics shooter.
and to the guy below me(sorry, im having a hard time with your name), the N95-2 DOES have a nice form factor that's actually one of the MAIN reasons why i bought it was because of its style! the N95-2 has that COOL phone look(dual-slider + black w/ chrome accents) with an "x-factor" appeal whereas the iPhone is just a bar-style which makes it look more elegant and sophisticated at the same time.
GPS: (winner, N95-2)
HANDS-DOWN nokia takes this one!!! built-in GPS with maps PREINSTALLED truly makes this a fine GPS device. the iPhone has a similar application which is called navizon GPS however it is not TRUE or maybe you can even say "fake" GPS as it just works off of interpolating your actual location through cell towers and your wi-fi location. AND, you need wi-fi for this to work.
WEB-BROWSING/INTERNET: (winner, iPhone)
having a LARGE screen definitely helps when your surfing the web and the iPhone has it! viewing webpages on a 3.5in screen is DEFINITELY better than on a 2.8 one. also, the iPhone's web-browsing is made better because you can just "flip" your phone however you like(vertically or horizontally) and your webpages will load in either regular(vertical), or LANDSCAPE(horizontal) mode automatically! you can keep on doing this(positioning the phone either vertically or horizontally) and the webpages will follow the orientation of the phone! the N95-2 has a similar application called the "rotateme" which let's you view your webpages like the iPhone however, its not available for public download yet it's still in "beta" version and you need to have it "signed" meaning you HAVE to register the application first under your own IMEI for it to work and doing that requires a dev key which is really hard to get or, you can have it "signed" for you by someone who has one but thats a whole 'nother story! lol.
YOUTUBE: (winner, iPhone)
MUSIC: (winner, iPhone)
having an mp3 player nowadays is a MUST! the N95-2's music player is pretty good but nothing beats having an iPod! also, transferring songs from your pc to the iPhone is alot easier. just drag n' drop files(songs/vids whatever) to your iTunes, sync, and you're all set whereas on the N95-2, you have to search your pc for the files through the nokia music manager(pc suite), wait until it finishes, and THEN upload!
SPEAKERS: (winner, N95-2)
the speakers on this thing is LOUD!!! it's like having a small jukebox with you when this phone's turned up 100%! seriously! and i like the N95 for this one because it has "stereo widening(well, most nokia's have those nowadays)" which could make the sound even louder! sound through the headphones is about the same for both though, and they're both pretty good!
KEYBOARD: (winner, iPhone)
i PERSONALLY, prefer qwerty keyboards(im a sidekick user, rem!?) because i text alot and also it helps when your using your phone as a PDA when you're entering your appointments, to-do's, contacts, emails, etc. the iPhone has a "virtual/on-screen keyboard"(obviously, because it has no buttons, save for the "home" button) and it was frustrating at first because it would suggest words for you and USE THEM instead of the word that you're intending to type but there's a way around that where you just download an application(from your phone) which let's you have more control over how your keyboard behaves.
that's it for now i think im tired and i think i need some sleep. lol. final thoughts to come................
for my need's i have no problem's with the battery on the n95 and i do everything this other guy does with the exception of wi fi on all the time,but my workplace has free wi fi so i don't continually search there and wherever else i'am i might start a search. i listen to music alot and use gps here and there. As for style i'am very happy with how the n95 look's!
i just want to share my personal opinions about the N95(8gb) and the iPhone(8gb) UNLOCKED. i guess you could call this the "KING OF PHONES" vs the "JESUS PHONE" if you want. lol. i was fortunate enough to be able to use and test these 2 and i'll try to keep this as factual and as unbiased as i can. but first of all, just to let y'all know, i've never been a "fanboy" of NEITHER of these two companies - I'VE NEVER had ANY "apple" products before(the iPhone was my FIRST) and my nokia experience has only been with the N95-2(currently), n6600(my very 1st nokia phone), and the n80ie. i was mainly a "sidekick" fanboy as i've had the sidekick 2(regular/special ed.), 3(reg./spec. ed.), lx, and slide. i've also used other t-mobile phones(which is my carrier, actually) such as the wing, blackberry 8700g, and the 8100 pearl. i've also used other phone's such as s.e.'s: w900(i LOVE this one!), w810, t290a, p990i and htc's: p3600, p4350, and the softbank x01ht(equvalent to the tytn). now that y'all know my cellular background let's get on to the report, shall we!? ^_^
STYLE/FORM FACTOR: (winner, iPhone)
the iPhone is larger and sleeker whereas the n95 is short and stubby. this one comes down to personal preference i guess and i like the iPhone better on this one.
BATTERY LIFE: (winner, iPhone)
at first i didn't believe what i read on the forums but it's true! the n95's battery life is pretty short. i was only playing with the phone for a couple of hours like sending text, surfing the web, NO CALLS, wi-fi constantly on, played around with the GPS, and after FOUR HOURS(from a full charge) my battery life was down to half! on the iphone i can do the same thing and it could last me up to two days.
CAMERA: (winner? duh!)
N95, OF COURSE!!! 5mpx with flash, autofocus, and 30fps video > than 2mpx, NO video, NO autofocus! lol.
i gotta go on a break. to be continued.......
i phone buyer's , if you want gps, pull out your pocketbook, cause you won't get it in the i phone. want a good camera that is with you alway's in your phone. You won't find it in the i phone, 2meg with no auto focus or flash. why even bother to put a camera in the i phone. apple save's money by putting a cheap camera in the i phone and leaving other good feature's out. apple want's to attract people with the look's of the i phone and touch screen.
Reality is that today's consumer is quite sophisticated and able to evaluate a product, word of mouth is around and Iphone is being recommend from one user to another, and the end the result is million sold.
Evaluation is not on sterile specs but overall user experience/benefits.
