I don't understand what is so great about this phone. I might have nice and easy to use GUI, but I bet that soon most of the features are present in 3rd party Windows Mobile application. Some are already copied, like the "slide to unlock" thing and "free rolling" contacts app. But what sucks about the iPhone is that it's few years behind in hardware. At least these features are MISSING from the iPhone, but can be found in WM devices:
-Slide out QWERTY
-3D accelerated screen for 3D games.
-Screen cannot be used with stylus. It only recognize finger. This probably rules out:
-Painting programs and everything that requires accurate pointing
-Camera could also be better, like in N95
Also I think that the iPhone's "homescreen" cannot be customized too much. WM devices can be customized to look like iPhone.
My friend honest and smart, i respect your comment about your phone, i told you guys in my first comment, this is whats gonna happen; Iphone is gonna blow out, everybody is gonna switch service to go to At&t to get this phone, is a good phone depending in what aspect you want to see it, if you are from America lets compare the chocolate, the sidekicks, the razors, and the upcoming iphone;
1.- Chocolate, too much advertising so many people pay 300 dollars for that phone and they end up saying the same thing, THIS PHONE SUCKS, LG is doing better everyday but still this company needs to do a lot to make a phone top of the line and superior, you dont compare LG with Nokia and Sony they dont make phones they make refrigerators and blenders, they are not specialized on cell phones.
2.- Sidekicks from SHARP, come on !!!! Sharp make calculators not phones, the screen on my old nokia 3300 is better than this phone, but is all about advertising and advertising on music videos and showing hip hop stars carrying this phone, paying this much for a phone that doesn't even have stereo bluetooth , the camera sucks, no picture messaging, the phone fall apart in 3 months, pf course is a sharp!!!.
3.- Razors, from motorola, they make their money with this is been like three years and they are stick with it, v3, v3i, v3xx, now v8, v9, whats next, v10, v12, v15, v19? L6, l7, l10, Its all about advertising, thats the answer why everybody wants this phones.
I'm not saying that this phones are good, but think about the HTC Touch is a comparison Apple is gonna make so much money with this device is cool, but be real is a brick its huge, heavy, for the size of this thing doesnt have half of the things available for a phone with this dimensions, i'm serious when i say that i had this phone i work for at&t, they let us have it to show people the advantages of getting this, my point of view : dont trust a new company with a device that u are gonna be using everyday, every hour, its like saturn coming out with a V12 racing car for 200,000 dollars, would you guys buy it? theres a saying where i came from; the devil knows more because he's old, and not because is the devil, a Nokia is not gonna make many mistakes with new devices, SOny (the best) they are just making this phones every time better and better, iphone? Their first phone from apple? Thats my opinion, chose between honda, toyota, and KIA...
Thats it guys.
Does this phone support STEREO bluetooth (A2DP)??????????????????????? Very disappointing if it does not! The Nokia N95 does support it...
admittedly, this phone has the looks, but that's about as much i can say about it. reading the specs, you'll quickly realize that there are much better phones out there compared to this, but like the iPod, it doesn't stop people from being interested - i know i am.
on the whole, i think this phone has a lot of potential, apple just needs to explore and exploit it more - that or apple (like all of their producs) is just milking the cash cow.
it apears apple are launching on june 27th is this a USA only launch or will it be available in the uk. if so what network!! and when.
Very nice phone the only problem with this phone is its launching date when the hell apple will launch this phone
Do somebody know if apple is going to change the iphone before its erupean realese.
to the guy asking:
There aren't two 'models'. The cheaper version has 4GB and the more expensive has 8GB memory. The 'model' is the same.
Can anybody tell whether this instrument will support FM or not?
my question is wht do u mean by 4/8GB shared memory..? are there 2 models of the phone or what is it?
you can't sit on it so it would suck...i dont want a phone you cant sit on(and not crack/break) maybe i just need a more robust phone. this is not for me.
