I personally think this is going to be a revolutionary phone. Yes it will have its qwerks and faults to start off with BUT what revolutionary phone doesn't?
The features of this phone go far beyond what is written on GSMarena and features such as rotating a picture on the screen to fit the angle you are holding the phone are very nice touches from Apple. No it doesn't have a 5mp camera as the Nokia N95 does but why would you need one? 2mp is just fine for me personally as I'm not going to use it to take proffesional pictures to put in magazines or anything.
The only downside I can see is the amount of time Apple are going to take to release this phone. 6 months I can wait but any more and I might just find something else that catches my eye :)
well i think this phone has a really nice screen resolution. but "slide to unlock"??? wtf is dat??? when you put this in your bag, purse or watever and there are other stuff that happen to slide through the screen.. then it will unlock and do all kinds of stupid sht. and scratches are almost impossible to prevent.. unless u wanna use one of those ugly covers. well.. i aint hating on the iphone but i think dis thing is a high maintanance phone. one of those phones you have to like care like your child.. well i aint fr sure.. but lets just wait and see :)
the phone have conference people
I couldnt wait till I got this phone..and now I wished I did..never ever ever again...My Ratings, Touchscreen 2/10, Phone (Basic), Software 5/10, camera 2/10. Phone costs $43 to produce, Nokia n95 $112.
Apple ipods, laptops real good....phones are def not Aples strong point. Way too expensive, over rated. For those who want to get one of these please please play with this phone for 20mins, I absolutely guarantee u'll walk away with no sale.
No point in getting this when it first comes out. Why? First off, 8 gigs is way too little for all of the things you're supposed to be doing for dropping $600 on this thing, and in a year there will be 16 and 20 gig iterations. Not only that, but a 2MP camera is weak for a phone supposedly this amazing, and there's only one camera. It runs off of OSX but no ichat from your phone? No conference calling? BS, there will be that in the 2nd iphone, don't even bother getting this one but no one will listen, who cares.
Looks sweet, wish it had 3g in it, and why would you compare this to a htc shift, two different types of devices!
Its beautiful phone. Any one can tell me the price and availibility of phone. Please tell me if its compatible with windows interface?. Any how apple did a gre8 job.
waiting for the release.......now i dont want apple to test my patience...
mac osx what? why not windows vista mobile? look at the htc shift good god what a monster. 30gig internal memory and a processor 6x better then the iphone. better hurry up steve jobs.
this will probably scratch as easily as the ipod. good luck if you're gonna get one.
TO lAW190: boy all u talking is S**t everyone listen to me nokia n series that is krap. u see that touchscreen for the iphone it is multi-input method so it is very different from those other touchscreens..... the iphone runs MAC os X on it which is even better that microsoft S**T bout windows xp KRAPPP........
to law019: what kinda karp u talking bout it can only watch 1/4 of a movie? man... u need to watch the keynote which tells u everything about the iphone. The CEO of apple, presents the iphone u can get it at this site punkk www.apple.com/iphon it has 16 HOURS of video and audio playback
I'll wait for the 2nd iphone with blackberry connect, hsdpa, better battery, qwert keyboard.
and 3rd iphone, a common phone for call only.
the specification does not say any thing about battery mah, it is very important to knowespecially for this kind of devices
it is a very nice phone in the market.it is something new.i am just waiting for it 2 launch.its got very good looks n i ma fond of touchsscreen phones.only disadvantage i find is dat it has a 2mp camera.it is a apple phone so i hope 4 d best 4m apple coz apple is a very good company in ipods laptops etc.
i love this phone!! but what happen with the touchscreen, i'll get all greasy , and battery is quite low for ones expectations, one will have to carry something to charge it everywhere and a little tissue to clean the screen
"WOW, I LOVE IT, I WAAAAANT IT"
Oh c'mon, give me a break. Some one said "those phones will sell with a bang" will they really? For $600 with 2year plan it is crazy expensive...
To Apple Madness: What are you talking about iphone being a smart phone while Nokia serie is not? N93 N93i and N95 are all very smart phone, while iphone can only pretty much look at pretty pictures and watch 1/4 of a movie (due to battery life) and listen to music. Notice I said LOOK at pretty picture because it can TAKE picture for S**T. The N93/i N95 can do all these and yet it has a 3mp 3x optical zoom camera with VGA 30fps video recording VS a 2mp camera on the iphone? I choose a Nokia N-serie anytime even though I am not a Nokia fan, as for your comment with the ipod... that is why I never use one, they are BIG and UGLY and expensive for merely a MP3 player!
This is basically an ipod video... a much BIGGER ipod video, intergrated with a very basic phone. It is absolutely OUT RATED!
You may say that the screen is the reason why it is big, well it is the screen that i dislike the most, I owned a number of PDA and let me tell you, the touchscreen is uncomfortable, unconvinient, and unresponsive (sometimes... when you dont what to press too hard and bread or scratch the screen) I am going back to good old kedpad phones! NEVER AGAIN touchscreen, to hack with the bigger screen.
