they announced it as USD499 for 4gb and USd599 for 8gb for who sign up 2 years contract with cingular network.
This phone looks hot. However, just like the RAZR or the iPod, this will become wayy too cliche. Everyone will have it because their friends have it or because they want to be cool and join the clan. Ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I love the phone and it's functions, I just don't want to get it and then join the millions of people that will wind up getting it within the end of the year.
Keep it real, guys~!
It is so saddening that this thing doesn't have FM radio and infrared port. Sony Ericsson P990i remains the world's most advanced and favourite phone.
I hope the touchscreen is scratch resistant otherwise u have to buy protection sheets and covers for it which will take the fun out of it. Most of the ipod in the market don't have scratch resistant screen.

this is just like the lg ke850 prada phone.
-- everyone said it looks the same so i came for a look... and
all i can say is... design.... its the same........
and again, the proposed GPS is not a gps tracker, its a bloody map system that doesnt know where u are, u have to know urself!! whats the use of that! it can navigate, but what if u enter a wrong street? it wont be able to re-think its way around, so ur screwed on ur camping trip or holiday or whatever, the "GPS" is a total waste by apple. i love the ipod, hate this. all it is is a pda, i wanted a phone with GPS, not a map system that cant track ur location.
Dear Mr. Steve Jobs,
Are you missing yourself somewhere? You want to conquer the world but you just looking your eyes in north america. THINK AGAIN! Europe and Asia are the gratest market of cellphones, lack of 3g on your new toy is just a big, not to mention "too-soon announcement" for next year product is just following the footstep of Siemens/BQS to graves. Nowadays people are too bored to wait, believe me 2-3 months there will another product which replacing your device shocking cell-junkies.
But you still have times to keep your product as "toy of the year"! It's by releasing your product within 2 monts from now (to the whole world not just US-cingular!) and having triband UMTS/HSDPA included.
ok, i know it comes with a 2 year singular contract, but who will the contract provider be in the UK. because if its vodapoo. that will put me off :-( any ideas?
it will cost 499 for the 4 gb and the 5 gb is 599. but it is exclusively for the cingular
it's going to be 499 USD for the 4GB version, and 599 USD for the 8GB. BUT, those prices are when you sign up for a two year contract with some us operator compagny. So what the price is going to be in Europe...? I'm guessing the same amouts, but in EUR, and without a contract. So, 499EUR/4GB and 599EUR/8GB. I'm going to buy the 8GB for sure.
Do you think if we would buy a phone in the US, will it work in the EU? It supports all 4 bands, and the qwerty-azerty matter is just a software level, so why wouldn't it?
It wasn't introduced as an Video Ipod so the memory is fine. Besides the intentions of the device is to be phone thats more advanced then the average phone in many ways. What phone do you know is literally made of a big touchscreen with strong music and great video support?? Most phones your lucky if you can watch a movie at a decent quality with a doable screen. I think this phone will indeed revolutionize the mobile industry...wether people will like it or not.
Argh, Cisco's IPhone isn't GSM.
Patent fights can go a long way.
Looks good, but symbian might still be better. Wouldn't mind this phone, but would still choose symbian over it
How in the world will I play SNAKE on this phone?!?! God awful design, and touch screen means that it will scratch itself like whipped cream on hot summer bread.
This is worse phone evarrr... I am india! Bollywood iPhone!
The "iPhone" name belongs to Cisco. Not to mention "Visual Voicemail" that belongs to Citrix: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/01/11/apple_citrix_visualvoicemail/
Tsc tsc Steve Jobs. So much for "think different".
By the way, where is Cisco's/Linksys IPhone on GSMArena?

are you crazy. the iPhone is 'at least' 5 years ahead of other phones technology wise. Apple has over 200 patents on new technology put into the phone. just because it lacks 3G and sat nav dus nt make it crap. i agree with ThatsWrong, get sat nav in your car. thats the only place you'll nedd it.
to those who say, why no stylus? this iphone has multi-touch technology - multiple fingers at a time, stylus suck...
to those who say wont be as good with email as blackberry etc. it will, it looks much more simple with rich images etc. blackberries etc suck.
to those who say too big. its not that much larger than an ipod and you carry that around and a mobile. that sucks.
and the phone is amazing also, how simple to merge calls, hold send while on call etc. wow. other phones suck.
and who cares if n95 has a stupidly large camera and sat nav. i have sat nav in my car, and a perfect figital camera. why the f*** would i want that on my phone. n95 sucks.
