No video in the Iphone ?
A patent application published today reveals that Apple may still be working on a video "answering machine" technology for inclusion with iChat. The technology made a brief partial appearance in early OS X Leopard developer seeds in December 2006, but was omitted from the finished product.
The patent application, filed in October 2007, describes the use of pre-recorded video messages that can be enabled and offered in response to video chat requests from other users. The pre-recorded video message could be displayed to the caller in response to a "do not disturb" status message on the part of the receiver or after a set period of time without a response from the receiver.
The invention also includes possible additional features of allowing the original caller to leave their own video message for the receiver and a user interface for viewing the message at a later time. Incoming messages could either be stored locally on the receiver's computer or on a central server, allowing both outgoing and incoming messages to be stored for later delivery even when the receiver's computer is offline.
The use of pre-recorded video clips was also a concept employed in early prototypes of the iPhone. In that case, it was planned that iPhone users would be able to "call ahead", sending a pre-recorded video message to their intended recipient to be viewed before the recipient answered the call. With increasing evidence for video camera functionality in the next-generation iPhone, the possibility exists that the "video answering machine" technology could also make its way into Apple's mobile devices.
spoiled, 09 Apr 2009Nokia confirms to launch on up to 3 thin TOUCH SCREEN PHONES this fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!... moreAnd you should actually thank the iphone for those Nokia phone production with 3.0 screens. You know why? Because if not for the iphone, Nokia would still be giving you phones with 2.4 or 2.8 displays w/ no accelerometers, lol.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009Like i've said before, it's funny how iphone users try to rationalize and justify buying an ip... morejust because you say the same thing over and over again it does not become true (iPhone=iPod).
All this arguing would be mildly amusing if there was any rational thought behind most of these "i hate (fill in the brand of phone here)" arguments. Hopefully all of you realize that your choice of mobile phone does not make you smarter, bette, cooler, richer or anything actually other than the owner of a mobile phone.
Ipod is doing well :
A couple of new reports indicate that Apple has started mobilizing parts for their next generation iPhone. A Commercial Times report claims that Taiwan-based component suppliers have started shipping parts for the new Apple iPhone that is expected to begin shipping in June.
Meanwhile, DigiTimes claims that Apple has already placed orders for 100 million 8 Gigabit NAND Flash chips (mostly) from Samsung Electronics. This large order could tighten worldwide supplies of Flash memory.
While the iPhone was not specifically cited as the reason for the large order, the timing seems to correspond to rumors of a new iPhone refresh this summer.

Iphone will do the same to the Nokias and the Samsungs all indications are there only blindfolded people cannot see it.

Sir Josiah, 09 Apr 2009"Symbian OS is the leading OS in the "smart mobile device" market. Statistics published Novemb... moreSymbian may have 46.6% of smartphone sales but guess what it used to be over 50%
Nokia may have 37% of the market but guess what they used to have over 40%
Slowly but surely they are going down!
Nokia confirms to launch on up to 3 thin TOUCH SCREEN PHONES this fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apple release just one a year (maybe none this year)
Nokia fans are spoiled by choices from Nokia

...now what was that about iPod?
Most people on earth aren't dumb enough to have 3 year contracts it's only in Canada which is only good for...
...well I can't really think of anything, really.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009that just started. in canada where i live, it's not even possible. apple goes to great lengths... morehow many ipods can access data outside of wifi enabled areas? so thats email, browsing, downloading apps while out and about (and dont say you can jjust do that while in wifi, sometimes you need something remotely) maps, oh and it can make calls send texts, it makes 2 devices into 1, even before the iphone i had a mp3 capable phone and still wouldnt go anywhere with out my ipod.
so i guess you have a good argument or something.

Statistics published November 2008 showed that Symbian OS had a 46.6% share of the smart mobile devices shipped in third quarter of 2008, with Apple having 17.3% (through iPhone OS), RIM having 15.3% and Microsoft having 13.5% (through Windows CE and Windows Mobile). Other competitors include Palm OS, Qualcomm's BREW, Google Android, SavaJe and MontaVista Software.
Lets just take a moment with these statistics. How many handsets does Apple produce?
A single phone has a 17.3% market share. Sure Nokia has the largest, but look at its output, look how long its been in the industry. The iPhone OS is winning people over by the millions.
If the iPhone is so rubbish and inferior why is it the yardstick to beat?
