i have one, got it on PAYG and it is crap, available at the carphone warehouse in cheltenham,
far too much hype. by the time we get it in england it is going to be so outdated, it is basically a W950 with a camera and complete touch screen.
the only reason the americans love it is because they only have motorolas and we all know how s**t they are.
Also, how can people who just happened to wander around to this site rate this phone a 7.8/10 for performance when they haven't even tested it out? You can't judge a book by its cover or a cellphone's performance by reading text.
Not a lot of people need 3G (some just want to be entertained), so this will be neck and neck with the N95. I'm assuming its graphics and picture is going to be way better than any other phone, because, well, it's from Apple. Better than a low-screen resolution Sidekick/hiptop. Don't complain about not having a card slot. Are you really going to use up 8GB on your cellphone? Face it, you're not going to listen to 8GB of music. You're going to skip majority of them. Stop bashing the phone until you actually try it out.
Every thing new really draw me away from the old one. Iphone may gives me an exellent experience although Samsung F700 refers 3G. Good integration Ipod and phone is interesting.
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.
