Did you all read the post from one guy that saying the phone is not out yet and stop writing the review of the iphone. BUT he himself wrote that he had that iphone for 2 weeks..Please stop and think before you start writing something nonsense and comment on others.
This, revolutionary? LOL. its a touchscreen with 2MPx. its made by apple so no wonder why its the first to use this opperating system. what would apple have used Windows mobile? how useful is the accelerometer? are you goiing to spend all day rotating your phone? although it has good memory, it lacks a card slot. Java (and maybe Flash) will not work on this (even basic phones have this feature). it lacks 3G (which several of the newer phones have got). i have not noticed any games on this phone and almost every phone even phones which dont have color have games. it lacks basic features most phones have. your paying $499 - $599 with a two year contract! Apple has no experience in the phone industry. you have to use iTunes for loading music and video. no other phone does this and this just allows apple to make even more profit. you can not use a stylus, or gloves or anything other than your fingers when you touch it, so its sure to get greasy. it does not sync using WiFi. it does not support wireless sync via Bluetooth. the virtual keys make it slower to use than a Blackberry. it does not include any speed dial features.

18 June 2007 - Just over 10 days before the iPhone is due to go on sale in the US, Apple has announced improved battery life figures for the product and has revealed that the screen's surface has been upgraded.
The handset, which will be available to consumers at 6pm on June 29th, will boast up to 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of internet browsing, 7 hours of video playback or 24 hours of music playback and up to 250 hours of standby time.
This is a marked improvement of what had previously been expected from the iPhone's battery which was a more modest 5 hours of talk time and up to 16 hours of audio playback.
In a statement, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs boasted that the new battery life announcements meant that the "iPhone's battery life is longer than any other 'Smartphone' and even longer than most MP3 players".
Also for a quick pre-sale revamp is the 3.5-inch touchscreen surface, going from plastic to glass.
Steve Jobs stated: "We've also upgraded iPhone's entire top surface from plastic to optical-quality glass for superior scratch resistance and clarity".
Consumer demand for the iPhone is going to enormous, with many reports predicting over-night queueing and a police presence when the product goes on sale. This "bonus" information is only going to increase desire for the product, something that Steve Jobs seems more than happy to encourage:
"There has never been a phone like iPhone, and we can't wait to get this truly magical product into the hands of customers starting just 11 days from today."
I reckon this phone is going to be the ultimate multimedia phone ever !! I can't wait to put my hands on one of these beauties :)
You need to update the specifications on your web-site for this phone... Apple, Inc. has just upgraded their estimates to 8 hours of talk time (!), 10 days of standby time, 6 hours of Internet use, 7 hours of video playback or 24 hours of audio playback.
Please, tell me, what other existing mobile phone model can sustain all that activity? Stop referring to this phone as crap, claiming that you have tested it! As far as I am concerned, you can stick for the rest of your lives to your beloved N-Series or whatsoever! :->
Mac osx is much like same as windows XP.. so.. is their a windows xp mobile? .. muhaahahahhaah
What a waste of time, good on apple for entering the market, but this is about the cell phone not the computer....
I have had an imate jam for 2 years that has touch screen, windows mediaplayer, camera etc. etc ... so remind me, how is this revolutionary ?
This is going to be the typical Apple. It will have little software support but will probs be very reliable because nothing runs on it! I would much prefer to get myself the N95 at least Symbian is well known and has lots of software already out for it.
the iphone its all about cool factor,expensive,no buttons attached to a contract ,no joystick,no removable batterie,and apple reliability sucks hard!!! nokia n95 ist already 5 mg pix,apple its going to release a 2 mg pix camera ? hello!!!
nokia have a music phone that actually sounds better than any ipod!! the n91 what nokia has to do its a new phone, a n95 that sounds as good as the n91 and have a better batterie life that phone will rule the phone industry for years!!!
more i read about this phone, the less i like it. i have some friends who work for mac. most of them are not that into the phone. reason being there are no buttons. it makes texting and dialing a bit harder because unlike other phones where you feel what your hitting, you need to be more mindful of what you press. also, both battery and sim card are internal so hard shocking the phone (taking the battery out) can only be done by apple techs. as a sales rep it pisses me off that basic trouble shooting i cant help my customers with. ( i work for ATT). by the way have fun dropping the phone and cracking the touch screen (seen it on the tytan treo and all other touch screens hundreds of times. that and ever watching people use the internet on this doesnt even look that great. anyway hope you guys have a wifi connection where you are at all times so you could stream some video or else have fun with edge. i just done like the design nothing against the OS. screen is cool and all but the rest is the kind of specs id expect for a hot new phone in 2005. even the E70 which came out that year had 3g. well i just done like the phone and wont be getting it but have fun with thast stuff guys
It seems as though the apple iphone has evoked a great deal of interest from many cell phone users. I was wondering how many people will actually be willing to pay for the phone and contract?I love the phone and I hope that when I buy it, I will not see a million other people walking around with one. Opinons...?
hey man, do you compare nokia n95 with iPhone? d'oh! iPhone is SLIM and n95 is the big phone ever seen in 2006-2007.. and simbian is... "naspa" (no good)
Nope... i'ts not just a phone. It's what should be a phone made by apple. I think iPhone is the future BUT i'm going to keep my SE 810 just intill the second or maybe third iPhone generation come out.
adil i would like to know were you got your i phone. i thought it was being releasd on 29th?
