Comparing iphone with N91 is not really a fair game - N91 is like 2 years old! Of course iphone is superior in almost every way.
As comparing to the rest of competition:
It's very likely that iphone will have superior software. While Symbian is pretty good, it does have its problems, and since apple started from scratch, their software is expected to be better than the existing competition. Windows Mobile is not even worth mentioning...
As for hardware though... Everyone should agree that there are much more capable and better devices. Just look at the latest models from Nokia, i-mate, HTC... Every single one of them is better (hardware-wise) than iphone: with 4GB cards available, iphone's internal memory is not that superior anymore, iphone lacks 3G, screen is fairly low resolution, camera is inferior, no GPS, radio, keyboard, and possibly irreplaceable battery. That being said, it's up to every individual to decide whether they need those extra features or not.
But most people couldn't care less what the phone has anyway, so they'll just buy it because it looks cool... :)
The Nokia N91 is TWICE AS THICK as the iPhone.
The Nokia N91 weighs 30 GRAMS HEAVIER than the iPhone. And all of these people complain of iPhone weight?
The Nokia N91's screen is HALF THE SIZE of the iPhone and HALF THE RESOLUTION of the iPhone with not even 1/4 THE COLOR SATURATION. That's why Apple chose touchscreen, it allows for larger surface that can turn into a full QWERTY keyboard one minute and next it can disappear so you can watch widescreen movies. Do you know what it must be like to watch movies on the tiny, pitiful screen of the N91? NOTHING offers the multimedia experience of the iPhone.
Just look at these wonderful commercials. Look at how "Pirates of the Caribbean" plays on iPhone screen, how quickly it pops up and how smoothly you exit. You can tell it's real time because if it was a simulated image, they would be required by American FCC to put a disclaimer in the commercial saying so. FCC controls American TV airwaves.
No, what you see is real. If it wasn't, Apple would be required by law to tell us. It is this livid and smooth even though it runs the wonderfully superior Mac OS X interface, not truncated kiddie software like on Windows phones.
There is no experience like iPhone.
the battery will be like the current apple ipod once it goes out you have to take it to an apple store and get it replaced for a crazy price.
What's with iPhone?!
Overall there is nothing supper special about it, just the matter of fact that it is the first one with "multiple touch" system, every other feature is currently available in much more respectable cell phone manufacturer. 4/8 GB memory, go for Nokia N91 where you get 3G and A2DP too. Don'tlike Nokia go with SE W950, where again you get 3G and A2DP nad better battery life!
What is exactly super about iphone I don't understand!!!
yes it does work everywhere,that's why it's quadband, if it's openline or unlocked, if ur phone is unlocked, it would allow u to use any sim cards..
I don't see any reason why USA version wouldn't work in Europe (or the rest of the world for that matter) - it's a quad-band GSM phone. However, since they won't be selling it unlocked, you'll still have to pay your contract fees (or cancel contract and pay penalty, if possible). Other than that, I'm pretty sure the way to unlock it will be found in no time... :)
American iPhone most likely does not work for Europe. You'll have to wait for European iPhone later this year.
We don't know if battery's removable. Have to wait and see.
my big big major concern is the battery life, with built-in battery, and so many functions, how long will it last. wht happens if the battery dies completely, needa buy a new iphone????!!!
HTC released the "Touch" model today and it`s considerably LIGHTER than iPhone.
Eat your heart out, Apple!
This PDA seems to be a great gadget, but because it's a new concept, i doubt that this one will be so great. Only after a lot o "guinee pigs" have bought it and their complaints about it will be noted, Apple will make a really great PDA. That's my opinion, and it would really help me if you'll buy this device, because you will be the reason they will make a better one, that i will buy :P
This phone is overrated. I Cant wait til this phones hard drive crashes like their computers hahahahaha..my advice, wait for the 2nd generation iphone. I beg u people to wait dont waste your $ £ ¥
The screen is very big I wonder if it's safe to have this mobile in pocket.
If you operate it by touching the screen I wonder how does it look like after one day of using. Any cleaning accessories included? :)
I also wonder how does it work in temperatures below zero - is the screen "fast" too? How to operate it with the glove on the hand? :)
No questions about it. This is THE phone to have. I can't wait until it's 2008 Australian debut.
Iphone touchscreen will be different from any other PDA Window Mobile, touchscreen more like iPod screen only much better (unlikely leaves a fingerprint), navigate and operate the phone is much faster than any other smartphone (SE, Window OS, and Nokia)with real solid Mac OS X v.10.4.8.
Text input is fast, easy and convenient as it use multitouch technology means better than any PDA with stylus (allow u to text notes or sms simultaneously).
I dont suggest u guys to sms while driving a car (PDA user surely hv problem with this), but im pretty sure we can still use Iphone with one thumb.
Ok for people who doesnt like Iphone good luck with ur old fashioned phone, smartphone, and junky PDA, for i still hv to wait 2008 for Asia Iphone to be release ( u Americans dude is so luckyyyy.....)
The iPhone indeed moves that fast.
It is speculated to have 3 ARM processors to power the many sensors and overall interface.
Here are the commercials again.
There is no trickery involved.
This phone will be huge. If apple knows one thing it's how to launch killer consumer product at the right time (some lessons learned in the past me thinks). If it actually functions at the speed in the ads, then it will blow everything away; N95 and P1 included. My P990 is as slow as dog and I won't be moving to the P1 if the iPhone is available at upgrade time. Hmm, if it's as good as it looks I might even pay good money (which I have never done in the UK). Nokia and SE beware.
People talk about the next MP3 player being an iPod killer - I think this might be it. Speaking as one who doesn't own one - there are some of us who shuffle our mp3s on and off our phone rather than have another mp3 player and don't even mind if it's a bit chunkier - as long as we only need to carry one thing. No Edge? - no matter here, no 3G? - I've not noticed the difference so no biggie either. 2MP Camera?, 3.2 would have been nice but I can live with that until I upgrade to the iPhone nano :)
