I dont see what the fuss is about. Looks to me like a PDA with less features. Apple need to do better than that
More on the fanatics issue :
Apple has been seeing record Mac sales for quite some time now and as expected, the company’s platform has been slowly but steadily gaining market share. While the Cupertino company may only have a tiny fraction of the entire worldwide market at the moment, its growth is unparalleled.
iPods, iPhones, the ‘Get a Mac’ campaign and even the latest Mac models themselves have all generated so much buzz that Apple’s mindshare has grown dramatically over the past year. Not surprisingly, this buzz as well as the halo effect have had a major impact in attracting new business to Apple.
Research firm Net Applications reports that Apple’s global share of the personal computer market had grown to 6.6 percent in September. Considering that during the same month last year Apple had 4.7 percent, the year-over-year gain is over 40 percent. Even on a short term, Apple’s market share grew from 6.15 percent in the previous month, which would amount to a sequential gain of over 7 percent.
The growth that Apple is seeing is simply amazing, especially when taking into account the fact that Leopard is due to be released at the end of the month and many users are postponing their purchases in order to get the latest version of the operating system with their new machines.
All that market share had to come from somewhere and it is not surprising to see that Microsoft saw a decline of 3 market share points from the same month a year ago. Apple has been reporting that over half of their Mac sales are to people new to the platform, and the market share results are starting to reflect that in a big way.
The company is expected to continue to do very well in the current quarter, due both to back-to-school sales and the recently released iMac models. Some analysts are predicting that Mac sales will exceed Wall Street expectations by as much as 400,000 units, for a total of 2.35 million iMacs and MacBooks.
Apple Inc.'s share of the U.S. personal computer market for the third calendar quarter of 2007 was 8.1 percent, up from 6.2 percent during the same period one year ago, according to preliminary results released from Gartner on Wednesday.
The Cupertino-based company's U.S. Mac shipments grew 37.2 percent year-over-year -- more than twice as fast as any other manufacturer ranked in Gartner's top 5 PC vendors for the three-month period ending September -- helping it snag a spot as the No. 3 U.S. PC vendor overall.
no one needs a feature that the iphone has not..that's the point.....of a fanatic! =)hehehe
If you are unable to get all of the software available online to make Iphone the greatest portable internet device ever do not post your
inabilities on this blog, It is evident you have never used an Iphone
the does are A LOT MORE than the does not, sure it does not have a kitchen sink included, but it enables you to have internet in your pocket with a fantastic user interface that only OSX can give.
in our city 3G has free 30MB each month.
anyway iphone must have 3G support.
What fw do you have? If its 1.1.1 or later you should be fine. I'm still using 1.0.2 and I had that problem until I dl 2 modded files from modmyifone.com now my iPhone is good with sound quality
iPhone, iphony.. just too much hype!
1. AT&T only contracts (unless you jailbreak your phone and hacked with anysims)
2. No search function on Contact (just a simple search program!)
3. No additional software possible without hacking your phone.
4. Bluetooth only to headset.
5. Cannot connect to any GPS device. Google Map? Good looking but next to useless when you need direction.
6. What the point of having a nice screen if you can't:
6.1. Play popular format download video (avi, mpg, dat, mp4 etc etc). You will have to find converters to Iphone format and it does not always works.
6.2. Take video
6.3. Read common documents like PDF or even text or words.
6.4 any other things you can think of that does not have it in the standard programs.
If it doesent have 3G its NOT worth it...
Video calling is the future!
i bought and apple iphone two days after it was released, and ive had many, many phones over the years, from samsung, nokia, motorola and lg, and the iphone is by far the best phone ive ever had, it may not have video, or 3g, theterface is the best ive ever used and apple's customer serivce is the nest ive ever exp. i dropped my phone and broke the screen and it was completely ruined to no ones fault but my own, and walked into an apple store and they gave me a brand new one, no questions asked, 3g is not needed with the wifi connection, and the egde, it will work fine for most peoples applications, if you cant get what you need on a wi fi connection or edge you have problems, andprobably should get a life and get off your phone. the phone is awesome. wellllll worth the money. and would recommend it to anyone. i have also "jailbreak"-ed my phone, and adds even more awesome features, get one, you wont be dissapointed
People don't realize it. I have both Prada Phone and iPhone and I can compare them. People shouldn't compare iPhone and Prada phone anyways because you're basically comparing a Smart Phone with a CELL Phone. First of all on Looks Prada takes the cake no other way as a phone iPhone would be too big but it's features, not talking about the camera, video calling or 3G bullshit it's about innovation. Apple changes the way we look at cellphones and how a smart phone should really be smart! IPhone isn't for people who wants a phone but it's more for people who need it like businessmen etc. Yes the phone is great and it's probably one of the most user friendly phone ever but if you want head-turning looks without caring much for the interface but making everyone jealous? Get Prada phone but if you want a phone thats worth every penny you pay for get an iPhone because before you get one you won't realize how marvel of a machine Apple has made.
Windows Ringtone maker :
Did you know that with Itoner ;
you can make all sorts of free ringtones ?
there is also a windows version
i-fone isnt as good as every thinks
its highly over rated
i wood have to say the only thing i liked about it was the camera which is brilliant for a 2MP camera
but everything else i h8
ifone sucks big time. Bluetooth transfer is limited , u cant drag and drop files via pc to specific folders like in n 5700 and w 800i. No video recording , no 3g/hsdpa and no flash. This phone is not worth buying. I would prefer wait for simple phones like N98 , W960 and N96.
