Ok ... so why would any sane person would pay 1400$ for this crap wrapped in black plastic? This phone is so not gonna make it in Europe, because here ... yeah ... we have real phones with real technology.
How can anyone be so ignorant and ask such a high price for a phone that does practically nothing...oh my god it has the ability to play google videos and itunes ... yeah , so does my 50$ symbian-based Nokia can.
W960 is good, but regardless of it's greater resolution, the I-phone will ultimately produce a more natural picture... 256k's cannot comper even in it's wildest dreamz to 16 MILLION!!!!
I just brought a iphone on ebay for $720 but its broken. Doesnt do anything at all unless i squeeze it and then it squeeks
Like I was saying sometime ago iPhone is a 2G phone and is missing a lot of features, even voice dial is not there(ridiculous). Apple completely ignored biz people who require organizer, creation of qick documents, tables on the go. iPhone is missing all those features. Lack of 3G and ability to watch Youtube videos is completely annoying because of slow Edge speed.
It may be a nice toy, but not for a serious user.
I love my HTC TYTN and will wait for HTC Kaiser
what woudl you do with FM when you have 4gb songs ful of phone????
who cares about FM radio, this phone has an iPod in it!!! I just bought one 2 days ago! It is amazinnnnng, highly recomended
Apple didn't even incorporate the A2DP protocol so you can use Bluetooth stereo headphones.
Even my Samsung D900 has that. It works terrific with the Jabra D620 . Can answer calls with a tick on the headset and when you hang up the music comes back on from the MP3 player.
Only thing I like about the iPhone is it has a larger screen. For the rest, they can keep it.
Am looking later this year what Nokia and Samsung will come up with. I predict they will beat Apple's butt.
Of course, Americans are still quite far behind the rest of the world in cellphone tech and available phones.
to dazzi, if i want to swtich ill jsut cancel the serice no big deal, and or jsut stay with at&t adn switch phones the two years doesnt mean anything
watz wrong wit gsmarena guys...
till today they hav not shown iphone in the list of latest release...
wake up gsmarena...
the entire world now knows that the iphone is out and with a BIG bang...
Where's the iPhone review by gsmarena.com? I prefer the SE W960 instead.
completely agree with Trinity! you can't compare this uselessy expensive iPhone (it is JUST a phone!!!) to a PPC. Brick or not, I luv my TyTN...
it will be available in Europe later this year and in Asia Early 2008, it will be a modefied version and it might have 3g...
Of course it's simple and easy to use because there isn't much to use it for. Just handfull of icons at the mainscreen. Old switchboard phones were easy to use also. Just pick up the phone and tell the switchboard lady who you want to call.
But how easy it's for the more advanced user. Most of the SMS generation can type SMSs with numpad & just one hand without looking at the phone. Try this with your iPhone.
Or can you unlock the phone and call to one of the quickdial numbers when you are using handsfree and the phone is in your pocket?
How about managing the music playback while the iPhone is in your pocket or backpack? Can you use stereo bluetooth headset and issue smart voice commands like "play Elvis"? And it there even EQ in the music player?
Then there is the missing e-mail attachement issue, missing copy paste, etc. And how easy the file managing on the iPhone. There isn't any, so it's very easy! Get my point?
iNerds are already crying at Apple's forums that Appls should add feature X to the iPhone v2.0 (btw. all those features exist in latest PPCs). If you want all the features, then get pocket PC or real smartphone. If not, then get dumb iPhone.
I hate Windows (who doesn't) but I have to admit that with little effort, PPC can be made very easy to use. I would show my Trinity, but I don't want to make all the iNerds cry. OK, I'll just describe it:
-I unlock it just like the iPhone
-contacts browsing is just like in iPhone (flick with finger to scroll)
-plus I can call to quickdial numbers with 5-way D-pad without looking at the phone
-I have lots of different typing methods to choose from, but I prefer tenGO Thumb. The iPhone should have this option too. I bet tenGO would work better than the current keyboard in iPhone
-standard MP3 player with ogg support and EQ (can be controlled with D-pad)
-very inteligent voice commander (no need to prerecord anything)
-handwritten notes and voice notes
-messenger with file transfer support
-file explorer pretty much like in XP
-internet radio for listening shoutcasts
-phone profiles, like home, work, loud, etc. Silent meeting profile is switched on/off automatically according my meetings in calendar
-voip & skype
-internal GPS & best available car navigation software
-google maps just like in iPhone + GPS support
-java & flash
-huge dictionary that can talk
-Painting app with lots of same features as in Photoshop. So I can paint with stylus and delight my wife with MMS messages.
-Office tools that can actually do something.
-guitar (or any instrument) tuner. Not just any sample player, but real tuner that tells me if some note is flat or sharp.
-universal IrDA remote controller
-picture viewer that allows me to smooth zoom with one hand instead of some silly pinching move with two hands (ever heard of a scroll wheel Steve!)
-telnet & SSH
-bit torrent client
-secured wallet for storing passwords and such.
-USB hard disk functionality
-3G, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, etc...
-can be used as modem for laptop (with bluetooth of USB)
-sh!tload of classic games like Tomb Raider, UFO enemy Unknown, Age of Empires, Heroes of Might & Magic, Worms, Virtual Pool 3D, etc...
-and lots more...
So, did I manage to convert anyone to the dark side? Just get a freakin' pocket PC and pimp it!
it does seem a shame that you tube has its own dedicated touchscreen button but the device cannot record video ??This would have been good as you could send your mini video direct to the site.
Not impressive! only has 2mp cam, no video, no 3G, no infrared...boring! google maps? c'mon, we dont need that. guys wait for Nokia N95! iphone will surely cringe!
sorry i didnt notice, now i see that i can read pdf files and see excel sheets but cant edit them
the simcard is placed on the top right and it is built in, the back cover doesnt open u are right
this is why when u buy it u have to register it on itunes and u actually lose ur old simcard with all contacts etc.
as i said before
no video recording
no "select all" function on emails so u have to delete one by one
u cant select ur own ringtones, its only what comes with the phone
speaker is very bad, and it doesnt see java, only video-stream which is only youtube,
and the internet is not even fast.
battery life is good
