Just got 5 Iphones in the US brought them back to Europe, unlocked them for free on the web, work very well here in Switzerland, seen many people on planes with Iphones, did not see any with N95, what you see are lots of cheap little Nokia phones Iphone is the future of internet integration, and narrow minded people do not understand that, remember the days of basic computers starting c :
Apple gave us the icons on computers and now real mobile internet with its own OSX full power software, who cares bout 5 MP camera and other specs when you have the BEST mobile interface !
bla bla bla but no N95 on Time print your own magazine and see how many copies you sell, success is measured on the marketplace
and Iphone is success !
do you even know about the n95. n95 is superior to this thing no matter what time say's. just look at the spec's buddy of the n95, they speak for themselve's. go look at forbe's magazine nokia giant 1 billion customer's can anyone catch them. n95 navigation, i phone no navigation, n95 5meg iphone 2 meg. i phone no voice dialing, 150 dollar's to get it unlocked, no bluetooth transfer ,no 3g, no applying song's as ringtone's unless you pay pay pay, no flash for camera, no auto focus, no video recording ,send phone in to get battery replaced, no software update thru i tune's unless you want your phone relocked, no sms forwarding, music player not loud enough. if they ever bring some of these vital thing's into a 2nd version of the i phone you will want that 2nd version, then you will have bought 2 i phone's. i have it in one phone n95, plus someone also know's how to put touch screen on the n95 i saw it on the net. n95 win's. apple want's to give you less feature's than n95 so they can sucker you into buying a updated version of the i phone.
Time magazine posts the Iphone as one of the inventions of the year, NOT the N95, sorry guys, Iphone wins, read this week's Time and you will understand, no good to write negative things about the Iphone if you do not have it or simply because you hate Apple and you do not even know why ! Iphone is a new mobile platform that will help internet integration, not simply a cellphone.
to all the iphone purchasers: u guys are all being fooled by the apple company, its like u guys are becoming the lab mouses who are being tested for some weird tests done by the scientists, in this case, the Apple company who created the iPhone, but as a first time user, it's true that u guys spent too much $$ on a rather very low featured phone. first of all, the iphone doesn't support 3G service, this is totally wrong, because right now, all the hitech phones should come with the 3G technology, if u take a look at nokia's N95, or Sony Ericsson's K850, these phones all got the 3G service. secondly, the iphone doesnt have a better quality camera, it only has 2MP, while N95 n SE K850i have 5MP,clearly, iphone is again totally out for this round. fortunately, iphone has a built in web browser called "safari", this is a way better and user friendly browser than N95 and K850's HTML(netFront) browser. in this round, iphone wins. then, there comes the wifi competition. after trying out the wifi on both the iphone and n95, all i can say is n95's 3G networks works much better and faster than iphone's internet network(iphone only has EDGE service, it's way too slow), so iphone loses in this round. when it's about the phone's input simplicity, iphone wins easily. iphone got the on screen touch screen keyboard for easy text input, while n95 and K850 has to use the t9 to input words slowly, so iphone's text input interface is definitely a great invention, it has set a very good model for the future generation of iphones to follow. finally, let's compare the sound/music. after hearing the music from both the iphone and the n95/k850, i found out the n95 has the best sound quality overall, iphone is not comparable for sound so far, the apple company needs to work on for the later models they will release later in 2008 and 2010. anyway, that's my review for now. i will wait to see if apple company's iPhone 2 will have any significant improvements or not, take care, peace out!!! :D
I agree with the original post, but not completely. The iPhones which are being brought in India by what-so-ever means work absolutely fine initially. You will find the contacts, GPRS, music, etc everything working absolutely fine across all networks in Delhi (as for my knowledge); The only problem is and is definitely going to arise is that the first time you face a problem in the phone or it generally slows down or hangs and all - ideally you would connect it to your PC and go to the Apple website to download the latest firmware. THIS is where money becomes dust and the iPhone will become an 'iBrick'.
Conclusion: You can use the phone as of now but eventually you WILL have to update or upgrade the software sometime. Once connected to the Internet, Apple's server will note that you are sitting in India with an unauthorised piece and wallah! you behold a shiny brick in your hand.
hello all, I have had a nokia n95 for about 6 months, I brought the iPhone on the day of release in the uk. I will never go back to my n95 its just so messy compared to the iPhone. I think it is clear from all the reveiws I have read that the only people who attack the iPhone are people who have never used one, or who just can't afford one. The main feature that stands out is the keyboard it works so well, very intelligent. Its so much more of a pleasure to use than any other phone. If you are on the edge take the plunge and you will never go back. Enjoy
Just like it did in America, This phone will lose touch very quickly. Ya don't need a fancy phone with touchscreen and a 3.5" display. Phones are used to call people, not for entertainment purposes. If this phone were Cheaper then it would be ok, But at £269
on an 18 month contract (£35 min) i wouldn't buy it if i were Bill Gates.
By the way, Nokia's on thier way to creating the ultimate iPhone killer. Watch out apple!
hey dudes who told you that the iphone's battery will only last for 18 months??
have you had it for 18 months and saw that it died??
ipod touch is way better. just get a 3g phone instead that is with all the stuffs of course that were lacking to the features from this crapped iphone. it's just for fashion, nothing's special.
tried the iphone and wasn't impressed the camera is a joke and no 3G..cant play games or record video. How is it so expensive? i've bought an LG Viewty and its 100 times better so don't waste an extra £100 on an iphone get the viewty.
its a fun phone to use...
but be warned..
rather short battery life and tends to heat up like an oven.....
overall a good phone but im not too sure if its complete value for money yet.....
i would think it would be wiser to wait for a couple of more versions to come out before enlarging apple's profits anymore.....
just let them smooth out the creases first....
Killer Iphone is the Iphone, China Unicom just announced is going to offer it:
Apple shares are up 15% in less than two days, no hope for N95 sorryNokia lovers the market thinks different !
The iphone is such a cool phone, depending on what your going to use it for, if your a big fan of the internet then the iphone is for you.
It's user friendly, looks cool, great battery life, great internet browser and it's sexy and nearly forgot it's an ipod and video.
I'm laughing my head off at those who are critisizing it because I know you want one.
Ok the iphone has a few disadvantages for example 2mp camera, just go and get a proper digital camera and so on
