tallinex there are some news that nintendo are developin games for iphone
the CONS of the iPhone (before you buy reconsider, i was planing on getting one but i noticed these problems)
Must use iTunes (iPhone + iTunes = iProfit, its simple)
i dont think you can download themes nor games
NO java (maybe NO flash)
No card slot
only 1 main button the screen will get dirty and scratched
typing messages will be slower because it uses a virtual keyboard
expensive phone + 2year contract needed (also cheaper to buy 80Gb mp3 player or ipod and a phone than this)
big (might be unconfortable with it in your pocket)
although a phone should not be used instead of a camera, there are cheaper phones on the market with better cams (and are touchscreen as well)
how usefull is accelerometer? are u goin 2 rotate ur phone all day long
the battery of any phone with a big screen is poor
Apple has practically no experience in the phone industry whereas other barnds have several years
DOES NOT sync using bluetooth, must use USB
so why buy this overpriced phone when there are better phones for cheaper?
the main disadvantage i reckon is "cant use mp3 as ringtones"?!! this is seriously ridiculous... such as a disappointment.. :(
Don't be panic guys and girls. Iphone will be released in EU the end of this year and in Asia 2008. AT&T signed a contract with Apple to have the first release in US maket but can't hold the contract forever. My opinion, why not wait for the unlocked iphone when it releases in EU or Asia. There are 2 reasons to wait: 1. the price will drop down badly because of US maket. Have you ever seen any phone released in US and holded the price for long. The answer NO. 2. there will be some bugs about software issue on this iphone. Go to mobileburn.com and read some reviews: the iphone can't video clip, can't text message, no changable battery, have to send the whole phone to apply for battery replacement and cost alot of money. can't use MP3 song for ringtone...and a lot more of disadvantage. Anyway, let wait and see after this friday...
Does anyone know if it's better to purchase the iphone from a apple store or at a att store? Isn't cingular/att nottorious for having dumb salepersons?
Everyone should read this and ask less stupid questions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone
Excellent phone, but missing one big feature 3G.
I would've bought only for the 3G, waiting for the next releases hoping they support 3G
A phone with everything except 3G. Like building a supercar and putting a steam powered engine under the bonnet. You will need to rely on wi-fi to connect to the internet at a decent speed, and that will run your battery flat in no time. Posers phone like the Prada.
This phone rocks. Its design is one of a kind compared to its many counter parts that already exist in the market considering it is the first unit that Apple will release in the market and knowing the reputation of Apple when it comes to R and D with its product( mac notebook,shuffle, ipod), good design.
A news came lately that this unit will be out this coming Friday atleast for US market.
love the phone, the interface and the features. just one question. every other pda has pocket office (or equivalent), with document, spreadsheet and presentation capability. does the iphone have this built-in? or if not, can these applications be easily found and installed?
I have some questions with the iphone...
is it true that there is no mms function?
they say it cannot record videos... any truth in this?
any help would be greatly appreciated thanks sirs
I think that the iphone is great for listening and watching music videos...who cares if it doesn't have any games on it...if you want to play games buy a xbox, xbox 360, psp, ps2 or ps3...or go buy a computer...
Dont waste time on ths phone . it will be available i asia . next year.
can i use the apple iphone in the Philippines even though i bought it at the USA?
THANKS A LOT! =)
*heres why i said the iphone will NEVER e available out of the us*
this is straight from the at&t website...
Apple has chosen AT&T, the best and most popular carrier.........
@ jimmy : your comment must be the most ridiculous I've read recently. The iPhone will run OSX (a unix based OS in case you don't know) on its core and it will be a totally locked OS. You can only run 3rd party apps that were written in AJAX/Web 2.0. It couldn't be more secure or closed.
