Apple is the WORLD CHAMPION of the marketing and the branding awareness...YES it's not exactly a state-of-the-art communicating device but Steve Jobs is making everything gold when it comes to the market. I'm convinced people, especially in the States, will rush into the stores in June. Definitely, Nokia, S-E and Samsung have a REAL new challenger!!!
Xman u sadact. u dnt get a phone for games. this is much more than a phone. this is a revolution. its amazing. it does everything and runs OSX i mean common. stop with the negativity!!!! vote 10 woohoo! Only negative point is 8gb is too small :-( for a widescreen ipod replacement it should have a huge HD, that would be the dogs b's.
The phone only has one button!! would you be able to play good mobile games on?? i hope it doesn't come w paratrooper and brick!!!
Phones need an 8-way control so i can play SF2 type games, not this 4 way stuff...
This phone looks pretty cool with all of the features and everything but does it have a non removable batt like the ipod? Those proprietary batts cost so much to replace!!! Still like Nokia phones though...
I'm just concern about the reliability of the face of the I-phone? As all we know, you will be using all the time your finger tip to scroll and browse in the internet. I owned an Ipod and I know for the fact that the unit can easily scratch the face plate.
how many of you guys/girls who have negative comments actually get what this phone is capable of doing....? This a MAC with Tiger OSX operating system (for those who do not know what this is, go to your local Apple dealer, and try out their computers, that is what it's all about, just the same as installing Windows XP operating system into a mobile- does that exist? anyways who cares it would probably crash every second minute), and its a phone and its an iPod and a movie player and and and. This phone is capable of everything to be exact. And it will not crash more than any other mobile thats for sure, trust me!
Ok it does not have 3G or GPS, but not to worry Steve Jobs already announced that its under development... My only worry is the BATTERY that is im sad to say not Apples strongest sales argument around!
I simply cant wait to get it..... just a damn shame I have to wait until end 2007:-(
No 3G - criminal, Apple are meant to be a forward facing company, HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. I'm a life long apple fan, but this takes the biscuit. Unless the UK government decide to give us free WIFI (VERY unlikely - in 2007 anyway) you'll be waiting ages for a download (drain on battery). Ever heard of HSDPA? Its the future (for us in the UK). Also i've owed a few ipods and every single one has needed a silicon glove to stop scratches, cant see how this amazing touch screen can resist all those keys and coins in our pockets. I'm getting an N95 (5MP camera and 30 fps video AND GPS)
C'Mon guys - there is not a lot to get excited about. Yes it's Apple's first foray into the mobile phone market but the price, coupled with the size of the device - will you really want to use this to replace your iPod and mobile phone? I think not! Take samsung's i300/i310. 3 - 4GB internal space. Smart features, great size. C'mon apple, you can do better than this!
look man its a good design and let them have there time in the light this is the very first time this has been done and all you critics out there are getting ridicolous because no phone is going to be perfect just because you had a issue with the phone doesnt mean everyone will and vica verse so let it go
Truly amazing piece of hardware! and the OS is a brilliant combination of eye-candy & ease of use(see the demo on apple.com). But no 3G, thats disheartening!
I think that the idea of this phone is more for storing music and DVD's rather than taking pictures and besides a 2 mp camera will still take a good quality picture.
As for how to drive and text I think you need to concider if you should be using your phone while your diriving as its not the best idea!
i dont like it...
i expected that iphone would look more cooler and more features...
this fone ,i must say is one of the most wonderful gadget today !! but they forgot to put 3G functionality on it !! and it only has 2 megapix which is not enough to take superclear pics N95 has 5 megapix !!!!
I suggest you see the presentation of this phone on apple.com to see what it is capable of doing, and you will see that this is the greatest mobile phone yet! NO applications for this ?? it has MAC OSX with COCOA support, that means that nothing is impossible to develop for this phone. it will be just like developing for mac....
