This is the best iPod made (and also a comm device) If I buy it .. I will use it more for that: music... ok if it's 4Gb are in flash chips... if it's in disk.. SAY NO TO DISK ON pods. About the zirconia, sounds nice, I only complain about size.
The phone is actually running their new OS Leopard on the phone. And yes it has the same features as other phones, like nokia but some people may not like nokia, just like how someone does not like any other phone company. If you dont liek it dont buy it, apple already knows about you and dont care if you buy, they have their market already.
The fact the this phone is running OSX 10.4.8, the same OS thats on my computer at home tells me I can do anything with this phone. It runs widgets, (small programs). Last time I looked Apple had over 3000 listed for free!
This is only of those things from apple, just like the ipod, when it first come out, everyone has one, it WONT be so special after a while when you see everyone is holding one. I never had ann ipod and neither i will get this phone, dont like the look and spec of it. Also, think abou it people, this is the first time apple produce any mobile phones, should we trust its functionality?
this phone will have real problems competing with the nokia n95 which has pretty much everything including almost 2mb/s download speeds (1.8)
Haroon, maybe this innovate when don't care slide keyboards (N95 need slide in two side to solve the problem in multimedia mode) or shell style or book style(like nokia 9300) or uncomfortable stylus (in sony W950, I never know if use keyboard or stylus AND if this touchscreen really work why came a keypad)
The innovation in iPhone are the multi-touchscreen mode. This release more space for screen you can get any virtual keyboard and don't care slides one. This is very slim.
I don't now, the N95 cam apparently don't so good in http://www.gsmarena.com/3gsm_2007_report-review-129p2.php
and for use the maps you will pay the Tele Atlas. I prefer iPhone that use google maps and bigger screen.
Can any one answer that iPhone support SIP(voip) over wifi??
Iphone looks really nioce but as far as specifications concerned, nothing is new in it. you can easily find all these features in N80 or N95 even with higher resolution camera, 3G, .....
Iphone rating must be around 4 out 0f 10.
i luv luv luv luv luv luv this iphone i want it sooooo bad but i f****in got the bloody Lg KG800
But as its so wide and tall it barely fits in your pocket and also u need two hands to do anything with it. Ofcourse the multitouch screen is awesome, but are u sure you dont want the old and easy-use keyboard back after few weeks?
with this phone starts a new era of mobile phones...the main innovative function is the the 16M colors TFT display with Multi-touch input method and also the accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate...it doesn`t need a card slot; i think it`s 4/8 GB of internal memory it`s enough. I can`t hardly wait to be released in Europe
Also those of you complaining about its size just for relativity its 7mm taller then a BB Pearl, and about 3cm wider, but about half as thick...which means its the same size as you average BB or Treo, or p910 except alot thinner
Why does everyone on here think they are a phone expert. Yes one phone may have more features or this or that. But how many of you have honestly used all the phones that you compare to this. Further, this is just a primary release, and the specs will most likely change when it comes time to release just like any phone.
As for why it doesnt have 3g or a radio or this and that, haven't you ever heard of there being too much...when you try and pack a million things into something you end up having problems...and anyone who has used a motorola or nokia knows that.
Manufactures are not stupid, especially Apple, a company that puts alot of time and development into products...there were hundred's of other iPhone designs before this one and previous phones probably had all those features you want, but they probably did not work together or resulted in poor battery life or caused a negative affect. Which is why they are not there, its not like they stick there hand into a box, cover their eyes and pull out slips of paper with the features they want.
Stop your complaining about everything and try and understand that the reason why companies make more then one phone...because they obviously cant satisfy you whiners with one product. Apple knows who there demographic is and its not every Tom, Dick and Harry out there; which is everyone complaining on these boards
This phone does not surprise me, maybe the price will. Nothing new about it. Almost all the functions can be find on other phones. The design is okay and clear resolution screen that's what i find impressed. Can not record video with the camera and no FM. I think we will HAVE to buy the accessories to get those functions. Don't forget about the battery, if is build in like ipod. First month 14 hours of music. Few months later, less than 4 hours.
The concept is really good. But making it available through Cingular with a two year plan isn't. I love the ipod features, yet 4/8GB is not a whole lot of space for videos and without an external memory card slot, it is held back.
"but, I recommend LG PRADA"
Oh really? You recommend LG Prada phone for its sucky flash interface, touchscreen that only allows for one input at a time instead of Apple's innovative Multi-Touch, no WiFi, poorer resolution screen and more expensive pricetag? All without the great iPod functionality? Oh gee, thanks...
"is so fragile that screen will have lots of scratches if dont take care of it good."
Actually, you're in for a surprise when Apple reveals that the iPhone screen is virtually scratch-free. Anyone remember the zirconium patent for phones they received before the announcement?
"Apple Computer in a new patent filing discloses that it has been experimenting with consumer electronics casing designs comprised of radio-transparent ceramic materials such as zirconia, which would allow wireless signals to pass through the enclosure and potentially enhance transmissions.
Other reasons for using ceramics cited in the filing are that they are highly scratch resistant, have color embedded in it (no paint or coatings), can be made into a wide variety of colors, and provide a variety of surface finishes including smooth and rough."
Apple has only revealed about 25% of the iPhone's functionality. Can't wait until you naysayers are knocked off your feet when you can run a key across the iPhone's screen without scratching it.
I don't really like this phone that much since its not a 3G phone its not even a dual-camera and it doesnt even have a video calling! You should like get a N95.
but, I recommend LG PRADA it's cooler than the iPhone, everybody wants iPhone because, its popular and because its from APPLE and most people think that APPLE is expensive, popular and stuffs like that. Get an LG Prada! or an N95 think of the specs! err..
ill never buy this phone!! is so fragile that screen will have lots of scratches if dont take care of it good. ya know hos easy it is to drop phones of ipod ,, the price on this thing would be as high as a ps3..get a Nokia or SE better deal
