"what are you friggin kidding me? this is the same company that comes out with a new and improved iPod every six months. you honestly believe that by 2008 this will be the same phone? unchanged with no upgrades?"
You think this is a concept phone dude? Read the script. The opinions in this page are based on the specs as-is. If they change the specs to something better, then opinions will change for the better.
Right now, your speculations are just that - speculations. We can't have opinions based on speculations, can we? It's based on what is presented right now.
"let's not forget that motorola rokr e1(we could say, the first mobile from apple) was a disaster. i believe the iPhone will have an average success."
another mindless twit.
notice the keyword in that phone's name: MOTOROLA rokr. it was a project by stodgy old motorola, a rebranded piece of crap. only involvement Apple had was creating an iTunes java applet.
you cannot look at its failure and determine that iPhone will follow the same route. the ROKR is why Apple created the iPhone in the first place, they knew they'd have to do everything themselves.
"They're targeting this very same phone (as the keynote speech says) for an Asian release in 2008, and what will it boast of? 2MP, no 3G, no HSDPA. Are you serious??"

my god, it will probably be updated with HSDPA before it even comes to europe later this year.
this is not motorola, it's APPLE. use your head people. they don't sit around and let the competition creep up. there will be new and better iPhones every six months probably.
This is what I have been waiting for. All that I need in a phone will be in the new Apple iPhone.

To those saying, "this isn't a camera anyway..." this is not addressed to you. This is for those who actually care about the hardware. And what outdated hardware this will have when it comes out.
This phone features are great. Some of are revolutionary features, But the problem It do not have 3G, Auto Focus, 3MP camera, 3D speakers. I hope Apple will add those features for their 2nd phone and hope it will release soon after launching this phone till that i will wait..
Hey why don't you order it to be shipped to asia? Dats how i get most fones, even the NEW (January's) LG Chocolate. Thank god they don't got the regional codes for the phones yet, like the DVD, HD DVD or Blu-Ray games/movies/devices !!!!
Right now I'm using a PSP for watching videos and web browsing, an Ipod for listening to music and a Rizr for making phone calls. Though the Rizr is sexy, the IPhone is beautiful. I like my PSP but i rarely use it for playing games, I just rather watch movies on it than on my Ipod. I live in The Bahamas so the issue with 3G does not really matter to me. I only hope that this phone is sold somwhere unlocked at a price within $200 of its contract price, if so I will get it.
let's not forget that motorola rokr e1(we could say, the first mobile from apple) was a disaster. i believe the iPhone will have an average success. maybe the next generations of iPhones will be better, or in the mean time, microsoft's gonna come out with something alike and wipe out the iPhone. we'll see...
leave ur mp3s at home. leave ur pmps at home.... everything will be solved by iphone.
with iphone, its not that hard to imagine...
I think this is the best mobile phone ever..
and i wonder why people are dissapointing the camera.. for god's sake,, this is a phone, not a camera.. camera is optional,,
overall, iPhone is the best,,, beware Nokia, SE...
I think it's genius! I've waited so long for Apple to bring out a successor to the old Apple Newton (remember those things??)
I still have some reservations about the battery life, even though the same when for my iPod which has been fine.
Also, I feel that using multi-touch instead of physical keys might be a bit odd on a phone - but if I trust anyone to create a brilliantly intuitive user interface, its Apple!!
This phone is great , it has everything that i need which doesn't include 3G ((like i use it ))
the screen is off the chain and i thing its the first mobile to use the Multi-Touch Screen
Apple will use its own Software ( Mac OS X ) which is really powerful and fast ((people who own Apple computers would know )
Good looking, but lack of some options.
---it's have no any Flash option.
---It's not 3G.
---Battery not changeable.
---i think price must be little bit reduced.
I am surprised when I hear people there's nothing great in this phone. This the best thing that happened since the mobile phone was launched (OK, the price is steep). 4/8 Gigs in Flash Memory (Not A hard disk which slows down the performance), 2Mpx camera (this could have been improved say 3mpx). An awesome interface and great resolution. This phones have 200 patents filed after its launched (not that its supposed to be THE indication for a great phone). If and when its made available to general public, I will surely dump my ipod, Nokia 5500 (sigh, big mistake) and my tungsten C for an iphone. Though I still feel that 3G should have been included.
I actually saw the phone in Moscone Center in San Francisco at the Macworld Expo. It looks nice of course. But actually the only revolutionary thing is the Multitouchscreen and that no pen is needed. Other than that, the phone is nothing special. For me it is kinda overrated. Also I would like to see the multitouch on a lot more PDAs. Another thing is the Mac OS on it. It's there first PDA OS when I am right. I hope it is stable. I won't buy it since I like the XDA Orbit. It has more functionality and a GPS for less the price. Doesn't look that good, but Windows CE is kinda stable.
"From what i saw, heard and read, I conclude that the iPhone is nothing "revolutionary".
There's still too many unknowns about the device."
Lol, you come to the conclusion that the iPhone is nothing revolutionary, you say the camera sucks and the touchscreen poses many problems on top of many other reckless judgements while simultaneously saying "there's still too many unknowns"?
LMAO, CalX you're a hypocrite to the fullest. you've given us a review of the device and you probably didn't even watch the keynote presentation or watch a video demonstration, let alone holding and using the handset for an elongated period of time.
This phone has serious potential, ignoring all those who were quick to judge, this phone looks remarkable and has the functions to match. I hope Apple comes out with a better battery for this phone by the time it's released or it should come with at least two extras, this is the only downside.
