oh no! not o2! I dreaded that! :( cmon Vodafone! get your finger out!
Steve Jobs hasn't ruled out 3G. The first one doesn't have 3G because the US doesn't have it wide spread and EDGE is the fastest GSM technology with the biggest coverage over there. But I wouldn't be suprised one bit if by the time Europe and Australia get theirs, Apple will have a 3G model. Hence the 3-6month delay from when the US get's it.
HHe even said in his keynote that they where wworking or looking at working on a 3G model. Be patient.
Apple is currently negotiating with telefonica (o2) to be it's distributor for europe...
for anyone thats wondering if you can use it outside the USA the answer is yes BUT you have to UNLOCK it or else you cant use it outside of the USA
Well, I would guess it would work as it's GSM,however, it's only available on the USA's Cingular network; they are Apple's exclusive partner in the US.I imagine that it could be unlatched for any network (it's quad band), but it would lack network features only provided by Cingular (they will be supporting the Visual Voicemail). I really hope that Apple partner with Vodafone in the UK!!! Fingers crossed!!!
does this phone can work in israel? my brother is in the u.s.a and he can bring me one when it's gonna be out.
I cannot believe people fall for this crap. The cult of apple zombies. Now I know who likes line dancing. Line dancing down to the apple store. There is nothing special about this phone. How about the tough and beautiful Sony Ericsson W850? The only thing revolutionary about this phone is that morons locked into ipods and itunes can now get a phone to play their songs on. Why volunteer for being stuck in the proprietary world of Apple. You are not cool for buying apple. They are not anti-establishment. They only want to lock you in and get your money zombies.
bad start for iPhone.no 3g in a 3g world and they say it has advanced data connections.Let them try to browse the internet in gprs mode, or even worse.. browse with a laptop/pc using the phone, hotspots are not everywhere you know, and wi-fi is built in in most new generation device-s now so they are trying to brake the market using a nice interface but incomplete technology pack
I am not sure but i think i like this http://www.gsmmobility.com/detail.php?id=128
but i think it would be kinda of flashy what do you guys think.
Personally I think it's pretty cool, but there is no way I will buy a 1st generation one. I will wait and see how many bugs and glitches and problems the 1st generation has, and how Apple deals with it, before I even think of buying one. Does anyone remember the iPod when it first came out??
just perfect!!! apple is in the right track the biggest threat for big phone companys
Really cool specs except the camera. If Apple ever wants to include a camera, they should have a good one.
Kinda bulky but considering it's powerful functions, it can be tolerated.
I hope it sturdy too. It's really disappointing if the phone starts to malfunction with the slightest knock or sth.
You'll quickly get bored, Ipod in the phone?what's so great about ipod?Wait till your ipod battery goes belly up.Mac OS X?So what?8gig memory?been there,done that,Nokia N91 Music Edition anyone?Get two 4 gig ultrahigh capacity MiniSd for cheap,what the heck, get four of them! Just another niche product,join the LG Chocolate bandwagon.
yes, its an awesome and it's the best phone
too expensive for 8gig storage
simply over-rated and simply ain't worth.
i'd rather waste my money on a ps3. :D
that's just me
oh my god this is the best phone i have seen on this plannet i love it who cares about 3G
iphone has created a hype,it has to be too cautious,n delivery of what people expect.Otherwise it would be counter productive,being its first ever cell.The glass should be tough unbreakable,unscrathable and still weightless.Hope Apple would note NOW!.
