i think it'll be a great phone.
Okay there's no 3G, no radio, no HS...(ya you know what i mean), no IR but it comes with Wifi, touch screen (and no one ever made it like apple did), look at it design its great (i can't say awesome because i haven't hold it) but it's great. You'll using OS X than Symbian or Microsoft or Linux. Hwo ever had experience with OS X on your palm (for all apple freak) and for you all beginners this a great oppurtunities to use great OS and the best is it's in your palm. Jobbs maybe stole LG idea but he's not the first one (remember Gates?)...it's all about creativity, idea comes and goes but it depends on who can make it real and works.
Face it. it's a great smartphone. You can't have it all, you have to pay for everything. like SE did with W880.
i can't wait for it.......
The Ipod was not a new invention, there were many MP3 players on the market, what Apple did with the Ipod was genius, they did not put in any new bells and whistles just incorporated great design, quality and innovation and dominated the MP3 market. Expect Iphone to do the same, it will not have the bells and whistles (like the IPOD) but what it does do, it will do to perfection (or almost) and it will do it in a new innovative way, it will be the best phone, PDA on the market.
But I to feel a bit let down by the lack of 3G and 3MP camera support.
I think this phone is good but i don't know the process on how to download the music.Is it easy to input any kind of data inside this phone?
Forgot to tell you that I can put 410 songs at 128kbps on one CD equaling about 35 CD's per discs x 6. So that beat's any external device that I know of. If you are willing to downgrade to 96kbps, you can get another 90 songs, which range from 3-9 minutes each.
Just so you know your Nokia can play 8 different kinds of media songs/tunes, and the far superior WMA at 192kps. I have an N80 with 40MB of internal memory & 2GB card and it has about 3000 songs on it which connect to my new 2007 Audi S8 via the same connection as an iPod. So, know I can play WMA and MP3 CD's via the 6-disc changer, I have XM Satellite Radio, and I have FM/AM/external device control which includes any WMA/MP3/AAC, etc., type of device. There is really no limit.
I really don't see the point. You could buy an 80 gig ipod (or better yet, a Creative Zen) and get a good Sony Ericsson phone for a lot less.
awww... copycat of LG PRADA! just after a month prada phone was released, steve jobs came up and announced this copycat phone! Maybe steve jobs wasnt even considering making phones.. just before the prada! but after he saw it, ........you know it
what do you mean it's 3.5g?...it can't be 3.5g if it's not at least 3g. in all honesty it's 2.75g...which is what EDGE is classified at. and no...having wifi does not make it 3.5g.
All features in Apple iPhone are amazaing, it would be also good to have one with 3G option to make a perfect choice.
At the MAC Worls expo, during Steve Jobs Key note speech where he announced this handset, he did comment that this is the first in a line of handsets to be released and that there are 3G models being developed.
So calm down...
Only a piece of art or a simple toy... this phone present many serious disadvantages for me... the most important: the battery life and this can't be replace... ah! either 3G support... ah! not have slot for expandible memory cards... and finally... very expensive. I think that is better to wait for the following versions of iphone... Apple, make it better for the next one
This phe f***** Sucks!!!! It's too expensive we need a phone that we can afford not a phone that people wont even think about buying for the same reason plus it doesnt have 3G are the stupid to no add it to that phone a mean then the $600 would be a good price. Well good luck to the people that decide to buy it!!! Wish you guys the best.
There is ONE great big thing i am intereted to see when the final product comes to the uk >>>>>> will the mac os x blow us away in it working flawlessly ??? When this model is released IF,O.S. X is more faster,,smoother,,stable and not prone to crashing every five minutes, will windows & symbian die on there feet as people swap to an O.S. thats smooth & flawless and more productive (especially in buisness pro"s)and less stressing.. Until then we wont know its just a notable opinion & one i will be watching very cartefully
This is Apple's first cell phone, consider that. In some people's opinion, it lacks features. This is the company's pass into a completely new industry! According to the specs, it willl be a great phone, but don't take anyones review for it, when it comes out purchase the phone and see for yourself. If you cannot afford it, then you should not be bashing a phone that you could not even potentially own.
I never owned an ipod, good thing I didn't buy one, it would have been a waste of money since I have an mp3 player on my nokia N80 and it matches up with this iphone plus it has 3mp cam, etc.
in responce to Kamals comments, i can only assume that the spec of the phone wasnt important?? if you look they do list MMS for example, and at the end of the day its yet to be releaced. Network Rep has said that it will be out in Oct allegedly. as for Cingular. theyr just being theves
