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
This is a killer phone but How will one handed people use it since you need to use two hands to operate it. !!!
p910 sux poo, how many question marks do you need lol you try and make a better phone this device is fantastic.
Screen best ever in mobile, anyone could use and and caters for all modern needs. BEST PHONE EVER FOR VIDEO PLAYBACK, STORAGE SIZE etc.
SHOW ME A P910 WITH 8GIG STORAGE lol u nugget
That true, 4Tw1? So, how do you rate the battery life on yours? Is it as bad as they say or what? Love the phone, but that bit just worries me slightly...
I dont know about that phone...the display is great i bet the sound is even better and 4-8gb is fantastic but the phone is not 3g and the camera is 2megapixels only ,that is like 2 year old tech i really think they should wait with this phone and make a better version
welll....right now i have the w810i....from sony ericsson and i got to say even though i just got my w810i i want the iphone badly....=)
iPhone not out yet, but guess what? I've already found a place where you can buy the Protective Transparant Hard Plastic Casing for it! I've bought one and can't wait til I get the real iPhone to fit it in!
Oh, in case you're asking, Yes I bought it in China during my business trip! Where else in the world do you expect Hi-Tech things are being made nowadays, huh!? :-)
This phone is perfect. Ir-da - is too old technolgy, that's why Apple cut infrared. I think it's right. iPhone have a 4 or 8 Gb of memory. Card's of memory? For what?
2 MPx camera (if Apple make it good) - excelent. If you want more megapixels you need professional photocamera.
bad phone, but lots of people will buy...people at my school just go for the looks. They still drool over v3 razr =.= and when they see a slide phone they go like Oh ****, nice phone!! iPhone is another one of those phones for rich dummies.
I've done my research, checked around a couple sites, and Nokias site itself, and i have come to a conclusion that the Nokia N99, and the 97 are probably a hoax, since there is solid proof from any website i've searched at. Still, they look like really cool phones with unbelievable features. Anywho, the apple iphone is the bomb.
