When will this phone will be available in Middle East? I'm sure this is the hottest PDA phone. 16M Color display, brilliant and the operating system is MAC OSX, nice one APPLE. But i hope next time create a more perfect phone add some 3G Tech or HSDPA. If you did that for sure it will be a big hit in the history of apple marketing.
it can't record video clips??? how bad it is. we have to wait some improvements on this one!
It's not surprising that a phone with as much hype and media speculation as the iPhone has received quite a lot of criticism upon launch. But what not all critics realise is that this product can't merely be judged by the extent of it's feature list and, furthermore, the number of pixels it's camera takes pics at. It's all about the user experience and it's there which lies the revolution Jobs has claimed. Those criticising the camera don't understand that the resoultion of this phone's screen; twice that of the Nokia N95. Plus it's got advanced photo editing features way beyond anything else out there in a mobile device: not just black and white, sepia, negative, blur, sharpen and all the usual rubbish which makes huge swathes, rather than slight adjustmens to images. Also, if you want high res images a 6mp camera can easily be bought now for less than £100.
Three other negatives of the iPhone commonly being picked out are:
- The size of memory. To me this seems stupid, seeing that there's only 1 other phone out there (the Nokia N91 music edition) which can even hold as much as the iPhone. Also, this, like the Nano, is flash - something which can't be said about the N91
- Lack of 3G. When the iPhone model in the US ships this June, it'll have EDCGE and Wi-fi b/g for connectivity. One of the main reasons for the delay to the european market is to get approval for HSPDA. If this becomes true, only the N95 will be able to match it in connectivity.
- Lack of stylus. Only time can tell on this one. It would have been nice to have the choice, but I think as far as on-screen keyboards go, it's well suited for finger input.
- Price. This is where the iPhone really loses ground - £335 in the UK with 2yr contract is being quoted. I still reckon it's gonna get the 20 somethings age group hurrying out to buy it though, once they realise what it can do.
It's the accessibility of the device, as well as the ultra sleek design (if a little long) that i find most appealing. In a world where mobiles have life cycles of what often seems like weeks, not even months, with the introduction to market of products touting new designs, at the expense of improvements so minor they're hardly a step forward, I think the iPhone is a real breath of fresh air. It takes each feature, such as it's iPod capability, and makes it not only as good, but something that actually surpasses any iPpod out there with awesome widescreen video capabilty plus coverflow. Now music can be near instantly selected by scrolling through cover art work much like one looks at CD cases in real life (if anyone still uses hi-fis!) Add to this the Safari experience on a 160PPI screen, quick double click zooming in/out it looks to be the first device to bring desktop web-searching to something that fits in yout pocket. One word... Awesome
No 3G? All phones got to have 3G this days for highspeed data transfers. Plus I hate the fact that we only get 4 and 8gb of SHARED memory. this phone is no good.
Cool design! Very impressed! Still a LOT of room for improvement though! I don't even think it can compete with the Nokia E61! Still some interesting features, but for a first Apple phone I must say not bad! But with the way Apple advertises I can already predict this as a HUGE winner worldwide! Thats where companies such as Nokia with better products seem to lack big time. Think about it, most people don't know anything about features they just look at the design and thats where Apple seems to have the upper hand in anything they make! Design. Design. Design.
Alright, I better go buy some AAPL shares!
where is the radio?...A phone like this should have an in-built fm radio...and the camera should be about 6 mega pixels if they really wanted to call this ultimate..I think besides that the phone is okay
This phone looks good, the design is brilliant and the apple people have made a real gem here.
Buttt. . . i'm not all that impressed with the touch screen. I doubt that it's that practical when sending a quite text.
Only 2 MP Cam,
and they need QVga Video.
Only 8 GB Memory?
"Talk Time" is to low.
But the Design is nearly Perfect.
Because asians already have better phones than iPhone,thus there is no point in 'rush'..
in this phone
has multimedia (camera, mp3 player, video)
4 GB its enough.
I'll buy this phone definitely
the n95 is just an ugly fat smartphone! the usual nokia: BAD design, BAD quality, 5mpix cam. with a screen worse than my n80, so it will look like a 2mpix shot. The Apple iPhone will be a new type of phone, to all u pplz saying: "it doesnt have an SD slot", what do u need that for, you've got 4 or 8 gb's of internal memory so i think that's enough, n95: u dont need gps in your phone, you dont need a 5mpix cam on your phone, for less $$ u can but an 8mpix cybershot cam! It does have zoom, go to Apple's site to see that, its touchscreen is a brand new type of screen, its design too. and vs the Nokia N91, i think it's an absolute winner(better design etc) the lg one is just, well, a piece of s**t, it isn't expencive at all for this type of phone. BTW , mr Jobbs said it is the next iPod(but they're bound to release another one in November or something) i personally have an iPod video. but still i want to get it, also all u pplz saying stuff like "other companies will think of a better phone until the iPhone comes out"-thats just bull and u know it, who can do that??!! No one beat apple with the iPod, no one will beat the Apple with the iPhone!
APPLE RULES, MAC RULES, IPOD RULES, IPHONE RULES!!!
why a 2 mp camera?! when they were designing this ultimate device did they ever think that the consumer would want to take nice photos. otherwise i think everything else is great besides the NO flash 2mp camera.
why can't it be available in all countries at the same time why must it come to asia in 2008 by the time it reaches asia it will be replaced by other phone which is much more better then this
do iphone have radio? If it don't have, we use a special headset to listen to radio like ipod? Any1 have idea bout this?
does the phone has a video recorder , or only video player ?
pls somebody reply
"pretty nice. too bad it's just a slimmed down, upgraded version (2MP vs 1MP & and more memory) of the nokia 7710, that was out in 2004!"
you must be kidding. that nokia was a piece of crap for one and it had buttons. for you to make such a comparison means you don't know the power of iPhone.
here is a video if iPhone's capabilities:
now look at that and try comparing it to your failure of a nokia.
