End of Nokia is near. Twenty years ago, I have predicted how computers would look like today. I was right. And some six years ago I have predicted unusual phones like this (Apple iPhone) coming out of the market. I had also predicted cellphones would be much like computers today where you can change and customize the chips, memory, video and sound cards inside. It's now starting to happen as generic Chinese phones with features like touchscreen, 3.2 mpx cameras, built in TV, AV players are proliferating the streets here in our country for a very cheap price. I'm saying now goodbye to branded cellphones and hello generics!
guys I really feel like buying this iphone.I have a w810i & I'm totally satisfied.Do you think it is worth it to sell my w810i & get this apple iphone?How are the features?The camera?I've heard it takes so long just to dial a number ,is it true?I don't care about 3G.please answer, I do need your help!
Does Anyone Know how to put nes roms onto the iphone? i downloaded an nes emulator from the instrall feature on the iphone i just dont know how to get roms :S
To: Mr. Job (Apple CEO).
The iPhone is for the USA market like Pontiac Trans AM, Ford Mustang and GM Corvette. Great cars for USA but not intelligent buy in the rest of te world unless you are an oil producer etc.
With the features of iPhone, it can NOT compete head on with the big boys like Nokia, Samsung and SE. THIS ISS A FACT FOR non-USA market. USA has Motorola as the big name and NOT like rest of the world where Motorola is not a key player.
You can release it in the rest of the world but with low profile campaigns and GET READY with an improved version of the iPhone to be launched in Europe/Asia so that can have 3G, MMS, Video, 5+MPixel camera, MMC card for data transfer, GPS, etc.
NOT A LOT OF EUROPEANS will leave their Nokia/SE/Samsung home and carry around their iPhone as their prime mobile handset. Few Europeans will buy it as an extra toy but this will jeopardize the GOOD reputation of Apple in Europe if you want to compete head on with the big names in the mobile business.
Take it from someone who has worked in all world continents, 30+ companies with one of the biggest USA multinational companies and with 12 years telecom experience.
i wont buy this phone coz its not a phone..
From the reviews I've read it takes 3 times longer than other phones just to dial a damn number.. This phone is for rich dumb people who just want to waste their time poking on a overrated endorsed device.
But of courwe this is a first Gen device so we can expect changes
I think removing buttons with tactile response is just a bad idea..
the guy who sed that nokia n95 8 gb is not 3g.are u on crack man?go read the review.it is 3g.
it is overrated i reckon.i was wating for it to come out and when it did and read the specs of the phone its quite limited in amny aspects. i mean common, they didnt inlcude 3g techonloogy in it.how dumb is that?a company so big ass apple i rekon should have done there research better.im from aus and cdma is phasing out over here.its all 3g.why make a phone without 3g.for all i knwo apples gonna loose al its business from around 21 million.it looks like a cool phone.best thing is the ipod thing.but without 3g.nnnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaaa.wont work out right
"My iPhone has about 30 3rd party apps, making it more advanced than any other cell phones out there."
LOL!!! My phone also has over 30 web pages bookmarked, but I don't call them "apps". We all know that web apps suck.
Tell me. Does your 3rd party apps include GPS navigation (like TomTom), or file manager or voice dialing, tethering, video call, video recording, A2DP, Copy paste, Java support, flash, etc... (list is endless)
BTW: I can use all the same web apps as iPhone can. But I don't, because they suck and I have much better native apps available.
because this phone is not 3G it will not be taken by all networks. It will be available on O2 first. Vodafone probably won't be getting it
Nokia N95 only 8 GB internal memory, no external card slot, no 3G, anybody of the anti apple guys complaining ?
Even if you will not buy it I am sure 10 million people will in the next twelve months, and my apple shares will keep on going up and up like they did in the past five years
iphone new review from a know site:
Apple jumped in to quick trying to release a mobile but do not seem to think what people buy mobiles for i keep reading reviews about on www.mobile-review.com an nearly everything i have read about this mobile its got no chance being a success in europe,on the 15th theres a review about sms messaging an calling but i was so shocked how these functions are supposed to work on this mobile, so theres no chance i will every buy this mobile an want to hear peoples reaction when it becomes available in the U.k an Apple will then realise it was wrong mistake releasing a mobile before it functions were up to scratch
