Look at all these Apple fan boys ~_~ seems apple has wiped your brains with their crazy marketing abilities and fad. this is a cellphone ..battery life with music and all those other functions? I give it less life than a Nokia. not to mention its so bulky, and before on other phones everyone is complaining about bulkiness and want smaller phones...this thing is bigger than those christ. Wake up ppl. arent yall being hypocrits.
i want this phone because it is really cool. the sad part is that i have t-mobile and its only for cingular users
Iphone - five years ahead of the american market maybe, but that market is still a couple of years behind behind what networks here are able to do. Yes its got some revolutionary features, but its also got some bad ones
+ipod memory and user interface
+touchscreen - pinching looks so cool
+ display looks superb
+everything will work with itunes out of the box
-no 3g may be okay for the states, where free wifi is common, but over here its going to be a pain. The keynotes speech downlaoded the times website over wifi and even that was slow. Imagine it at 49kps...killer. Version 2 wll have 3g, but Jobs wants a binding contract with a network provider for all iphones... so no 3 network.
-google maps is no gps module - notice how jobs had to put in locations - the phone cant pick up where you are.
But the best thing ever - Apple want no network subsidy, because it will devalue the phone. YES!!! now we will all realise the true value of mobile phones!!! Expect to pay full whack for this baby.
Its hitting the UK in october...
no 3G? its unbelievable!! though, i would wait for the upgrade, and perhaps 3G will be included.
im 14 and my upgrades in september ima abuse thsi phoen when it his
lg made the same cell phone the lg prada. i think iphone is better
I hate apple, but I'm still gonna get this phone because they're gonna push how cell phones are gonna be in the future. Touch screen! Its been around forever and only a few phone has applied it. Yes they can improve on some features which can be done later in the future, but its their first phone! Its gonna make a dent/profit in the cell phone industry. Ah congrats to LG KE850 Prada a proper way to answer to the iphone. Figh fire with fire not like motorola that just put out more garbage! Seriously if you support(touch screen) this or not its gonna happen I just prefer to have it happen sooner not later.
i just wish it would be in the market in asia, particularly in the philippines as early as now!!! can't wait to have one!!!!!!!!
Im 14 about to be 15.
and im getting this phone.
it is so awesome.
it has itunes and everything.
in the US, where im at, it is
coming out in JUNE 2007.
i cant wait until i get it.
me and my mom already talked
gosh, ths phone will be great !
so can someone explain to me what is so revolutionary about this phone. im still puzzled all of the features this phone has you can find on other devices. the nokia n91 was not the best phone ever made but it can do everything this phone can do and more. im just lost someone please help me. it just seems like its missing 3g (thats a pretty big hit on its own) expandable memory, software support, im sure it wont have Upnp, and at its price at least a gps modual. i see they are trying to play off google over the air maps as navigation... its just not. its an old trick. nice try apple. saddly they will sell off the shelves. that is one phone i dont look forward to selling. btw i am a cingular rep ;p
- 5MP Camera & inside camera
- VGA Videorecording Capabilities
- GPS module
- Nokia N95
Comments about the most advanced phone on the market ever.
That is really funny since many phone have lot more features than this one. have you not read any specs of any phone at all.
Of course it is a cool looking phone and a thin one too. It has good functionality and tat is all to it. nothing more.
Look at N95 (I am not a Nokia fan at all) it has all the features of this and much more in a compact package. It can hold 2gb, has GPS and all the connectivity options out there and a 5mp camera.
Of course apple can do something like that very easily in their iphone but their profit margins of 100-150% will be affected by that. The iphone costs between $200-250 to make and they sell it for $600 with a 2 yearr plan and if you take into account one can get a Samsung blackjack for free at Cingular a $400 conservative value, then it makes the iphone a $1000 affair.
So people out there think this is the best phone on the market, I can not say anything except, Apple got you with their flashy skin.
It should have a memory card McGJ. It is not an absolute necessity but it is five years ahead of time according to Apple.
It is meant to be used as a handheld PC and not jut as a phone, that is the point of Mac OS X.
If McGJ would prefer a laptop or a desktop with 200gb - 2tb of hard disk but no CD/DVD/BD/HDDVD, no floppy drive, no card readers and pay $5000 for that computer then I will be happy to pay $600 for iphone.
For this category of phone and its price range it is absolutely necessary and if you believe it is not then you are just naive.
god at last apple made a phone ... which is sooooo gorgeous i love it tho ... and the function is superb .... except no 3g ... its worth to buy one ... u r so true tho even the price is like $20000 i will buy it ... everyone out there its worth buying it trust me u wont regret LOL .. i never regret buying apple product ...esspecially IPOOOOOOD LOL ... ipod heat up my life without one i will be dead long ago =D
ROCK ON APPPPLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why the hell are you guys complaining about that it dunt have a memory card!!! its internal memory is "4"GB or "8"GB that is more than double of the best(in size) memory card for best phone ever in market,so i think THATS ENOUGH MEMORY AND NO NEED FOR EXTERNAL ONE!!!!!!!! come on "8" GB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is phone is extremely GORGEOUS!! OMG! It got everythings in it (Except 3G). 4GB is adorable for a phone.. I cant wait for it to come in Asia! lols :D
of course it will be the best phone in all over the world but it had to have 3G and less price but if it be even 20000$ I will buy it
it's surely the BEST phone in the world... when it really reach our shores in Asia (maybe mid/end 2008)... but i hope apple would release a no-phone ipod based on the iphone specs before that... maybe mid 2007 (while they release the iphone in the US)... so we could familiarize with new, revolutionary multi-touch UI... and may be it will be harder to tie up with operators in Asia compared to the US...
Five years ahead of time, according to APPLE, phone batteries will last for only five hours and not removable immediately. Actually it shoyuld be around 20 - 40 hours talk time takin into account the recent advancements in battery technoilogy (that is in five years).
I think APPLE should start focusing on their products user frendliness rather than mocking all other phones on the market. I like their products look and cool factor but are crippled in many ways and treats users as idiots
