Mr. Job, there is still time to make some corrections before d iphone is released, notably d almost obsolete hardware, d 2mp camera, the non inclusion of video recordin, sd slot, 3g, &java. Iphone is destined to be the phone of d year, pls dont cripple it!
Apple has been working on this design for almost three years. if they copied, why is their device the one with over 200 patents? why does it have the superior screen and functions?
LG was in the dumps working on the first Chocolate phone slider while Apple was in the labs working on this.
LG got lucky but their phone is the same old touchscreen on every other PDA right now. it's also not of the same quality.
the magic to iPhone is Multi-touch, a technology which belongs to Apple. here is a video demonstration:
the screen of iPhone is cutting edge, it is the future. Apple will soon have the technology in touchscreen Mac tablets, the iPod, more phones and whatever cool new devices they can think of.
the LG KE850 -WILL NOT- be able to do this. it is likely the same old screen you can find on handsets today. and THIS is NOT.
no matter what other ppl say, apple did make history because iPhone is really very different than current phone although some of the features are lacking (2MP camera - no zoom or flash, no SD/MMC or external storage capabilities, currently no 3G/HSDPA etc)... My only hope is that while waiting for the iPhone, apple could announced a new iPod that have iPhone features such 3.5" LCD, multitouch screen, full HTML email & browser, bluetooth 2.0 EDR... therefor we in asia or the rest of the world don't have to wait until mid or end 2008 to feel the power of iPhone... that's my 2 cents
i just seen on cisco site that this phone is being sued for the name they are using by the real iphone owner of cisco phone whihc is also iphone, apple wont sign their form so they sued them also the 2007 design winner is being copied by this "iphone" from this phone LG KE850. plz ck it out iphone wake up and see before your apple iphone goes apple phone or someting diffm and also n95 clearly beats this phone just touchscreen and screen size. thats it ,, and also who want a big phone?? and LG KE850 is another phone which is copied by this phone and can kill this phone but dont; know
i am with you mxcx
apple rules, mac rules, iphone rules!
don't you know that are only jealous :)
Stop going on about that FUGLY n95. seriously who needs satilite navigation on your phone, get it in your car where you are most likely to use it you lazy sh1te. and 5mp! wtf is the point get a decent camera!
and stop saying that mobile internet has been around for years. the current net available on all mobles, even n95 is shocking. its not real internet. its "baby internet" as Jobs says, the iPhone has full internet capabilities. FULL!
its clearly all you PC folk that want the fugly n95 because you have no style and are tch geeks. APPLE RULES, MAC RULES, IPHONE RULES! Who's with me???
I think this phone is cool looking... but no 3G capability? No GPS? only a 2 MP camera(there are a bunch of 3 MP camera phones on the market right now, and the N95 with a 5MP will be out soon.) At least it has Wifi built into it. If I were Apple,I would add the 3G functionality, maybe raise the resolution of camera to 3MP and possibly add GPS... that would be a really nice phone.
First of all, go to apple.com and read the specs, watch the keynote and decide for yourself what this device actually is. it is not a phone, it is something else..I have always dreamed of something like that and it finally comes true..whoever says i have a prototype of this phone, id say you wish! Probably the person who has a prototype of that phone is Jobs..anyways, the control system is a revolutionary one, the biggest after the invention of mouse..I am having nightmares about when I can get this phone..Id be the happiest person if i only get 10 minutes of play time with this device..The thing I dont understand is why they are waiting until june to release this one..As far as I understood, its all ready, completely working..Why are you doing this to me Mr. Jobs?
I have heard that you can download stuff (music/videos/programs) for it only from Apple's own services like iTunes etc (can someone please confirm this?). Very nice and versatile multimedia device? Programs will cost a lot for sure. It explains cheap price.
Touchscreen is not benefit. It makes screen look damn dirty because fingers are greasy (nice look photos/videos from it?). You can't use gloves or have long nails. With long nails its hard to control and you will scratch the screen. besides this touch-screen has usually pretty short life.
They should have put Li-polymer battery at least on it because big screen, thin body and built-in rechargeable non-removable battery are great disadvantage when we are talking about battery life. Battery lasts no longer than a day.
And what new things this brings? First internet phone came out 8 years ago.
First music phone? No hell.
First touch-screen phone? nope.
All together? Still no.
(HTC P3300,HTC P4350,HTC TyTN,Qtek 2020i,Qtek 9000,Qtek 9100,Qtek S200,Sony Ericsson P990i anyone?)
In videos I watched from internet I saw that americans where flashing Samsung phones as phones which are so out dated. In fact samsung has more than 15 MP3/bluetooth phones at market. Samsung is just easy brand to blame because koreans doesnt seem to have WLAN to offer(atm).
The price is pretty mcuh high, 500$ for 4GB and 600$ for 8GB ?! you gotta be kidding me
i think they ddint increase the memory size and no memory slot is because if they do, iPod's will run out of buisness for sure
also some people are wondering about why they are not able to install programs to it, the reason is that Apple want to control all the capabilities of it, thus, you want to get a new widget to your phone ? you go to apple.com and into the iPhone section, same as in you have a Mac PC(Personal Computer)
It's not bad at all, as stated by some one else, it's OS X NOT OS X 10.4.8
It's release date really is bad, June 2007 for Cingular users at US Only, Q4 of 2007 to europe and 2008 to us asians !!! and the camera is going to be really bad at the time of 2008, 2MP only ? no video recording ? very bad for the issued release dates.
I guess I'm gonna buy this phone it's so great it has everything I'll need in my mobile phone, and there's no need to download any application on it, it has already everything u may need, I wonder how much the price of it will be?!
iphone is a slap on elders of cell phones lke Nokia ,moto,sam,SE as they achieved these features after 10 yrs,price seems resonable touch screen is best,we r very anxious to see it much before.hats off to Apple///////
the hardware is crap, but we have to admit that the the touch-sensitive screen is revolutionary. i might consider buying the next generations of iphones, i believe they'll improve a lot. till then i'm very happy with my SE w810 and i won't change it soon.
This is, by and large, one of the biggest thing to come from Apple. However,while the software is definitely top-notch, the hardware is confusingly archaic. Why put out a product to be globally available in 2008 using hardware of 2005? And you can't justify it saying, "well it doesn't really need this or that..." Come on, who are you kidding? And if you're waiting for upgrades such as a 3-5 MP camera, future 3G, etc., etc., why didn't Apple come out with it in the first place? 2MP is already run of the mill by today's standard and will soon be rendered obsolete once N95 raises the bar to 5 MP. And this thing is bringing in 2 MP... in 2008?
Of course we can point out the niceties in Steve Jobs's keynote speech. That's conceded, this thing has GREAT software. But why sell your clients short on the hardware? Because that's what it is: Selling short.
I'll be waiting to see the magic of this beauty... aewsome! B-E-A-UuuuuTIFUL
"GSM ARENA team": hurry up! and take a test drive a.s.a.p...
to Chris: :)) apple(which is a corporation, not a charity organization) is not making phones for fans, but to make themselfs some big juicy profits. it's all about the money kids!
