Apple is making a massive amount of money by constantly having their users purchase a lot software that comes free with other phones i.e. paying for a MMS software! which is standard with every other phone. the hardware on the phone is basic, so the price of the phone is unjustified. the only unique hardware factor of the phone is the multi-touch. the users are being pulled along on a string. Every eighteen months a upgrade is released, with effort or chance by apple. Must software available on the phone is silly and pointless... just things to distract you from the lacking hardware. todays standard phone should two cameras; one for video calls, the other for photo of decent qaulity and vidoe capturing. the whole of 3G was for vidoe calling and MMS. the unchangable battery means you rely heavily on upgrading or spanding a vast amount of money to have it fixed. To say all these things don't matter is like buying a PS3 without a graphics card. the sole prupose of the "PHONE" is missed. the marketing of the phone has been great, but people forget, apple only care about your money and that's what they getting for the users and they are getting more harshly than any other user. think about it!
There's a big hype about the iPhone and what the iPhone has done for the market and the future of phones is great. BUT as a phone and just as a phone it's poor. the spces are poor. it's the software that delivers. You can't send multimedia text messages, no videos calls, extremely poor quality camera and no means of making a video, which is standard on todays phones. I was waiting for the iPhone, being a Mac user, but the specs were disappointing. I can't do the basics of a standard phone, but it distracts you with the software and things you would rarely use. as a piece of hardware it's substandard. If Apple work on phone side and build on what they have, they will truely have a winner (Keeping in mind what other hardware are available on the market; HTC, Sony Ericsson, Nokia (N-Series), Toshiba, Samsung and LG, all pushing out great spec phones (but lagging in OS in comparison the iPhone)). MS are just a step behind, but if they get the OS right and put it on the right spec phone, the iPhone will fall hard and I think that's not far behind. Lets hope Apple take the right steps
Please include FM Transmitter on the 3rd Gen iPhone. This is one of the main feature on my wish list.
Apple, please include FM Transmitter on the next generation iPhone. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Do you read me apple?
Apple does not invent Multitouch! I am not a lawyer, so i cannt comment on this patent things, but i think we still can have multitouch like software on N97.
here are some information i got from other site and some comments.
Stantum precision multitouch on resistive is way better than that on iphone, YOUTUBE "STANTUM" YOULL KNOW WHAT I MEAN! THEY SAID IT WORK ON SYMBIAN, WINMO AND ANDROID, only problem is it does need an extra small chip:( nokia should buy this company after symbian acquisition.
N97 has no this extra chip in it, but that does not stop us to have zoom rotate(plugin preferred) IN WEB/photo BROWSER with just one Finger
last word, resistive can be more powerful, useful and modern than that on iphone if it is well done (stantum is a good example)
Nokia n97 should have at least One-Finger Multitouch or multitouch alternative in it!!!!! this way, n97 is complete and 100% perfect
one finger multittouch for 5800/n97 very simple to implement zoom/rotate control by doubletapping you set a control point and when you drag the control takes efect need just one hand to controll (multitouch needs two hands to control - you have to hold the device with other hand
develope it now and upload it to Ovi store, make it free or donationware:) no more iphone is needed!
mohit, 22 Mar 2009i dont understand all the iphone haters.......iphone is one of the best phones i have ever use... moreOs 3 should be announced at day one! There are still many bad sides of iphone, you apple lovers just do not see them as problem
5mp carl zeiss len xenon flash and len cover
And some software issues like limited file type support! Realplayer wmv avi, file system manager, advanced settting.... More
N97 design os and spec is nearly perfect( with one finger multitouch coming soon)
Omnia hd is waste of resources
Xperia no comment
Iphone is that for everyone from youngster to professionl and old folks
i dont understand all the iphone haters.......iphone is one of the best phones i have ever used.....put the new 3.0 firmware and it virtually does everything from copy paste to mms to bluetooth to a2dp....its a rocking phone....and its a luxury...luxury always comes at a price so stop complaining....

Anonymous, 22 Mar 2009Let me know when this useless combination of metal and plastic will have Apple software inside... moreyou meant that can't mms,transfer files via bluetooth, multitasking, it took apple 2 years to implement these features in the 3.0 update still you can't multitask though. you pay for the useless junk at apple store to download some apps while you can jailbreak it for free by pressing a button and have the features that apple force you to pay for, plus more features that apple don't provide. i guess steve jobs is rolling his treasury
some smart guy has come up with a good one finger "multitouch"solution(zoom in webbrowser and photo viewing program in non apple phone)
double tap to make control point and drag to zoom, it is more useful than that on iphone (which needs two fingers to zoom, sometime you have to use two hands to zoom on iphone)

Do you know what "Developer access to over 1,000 API's" means?
With the dock connector an iPhone can be plugged into anything that manufacturers can come up with, like a detachable camera module up to any specification you want to have controlled by iPhone software and using the screen as a viewfinder.
Almost anything you care to imagine can be implemented this way as well as by Bluetooth and wifi.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Samsung is the world's largest LCD maker,LCD innovator, LCD market share, semiconductor innovator. world's number 2 semiconductor maker. Samsung makes memory and sound chips for Apple iPhone, Apple iPhone's screens are made by Toshiba, Matsushita and sharp.
its funny how you thought that apple build their products and is itself semiconductor.
90% of your iphone is made by Samsung and all those companies mentioned above. you have only 10% from apple; the apple body with a shiny bitten apple logo on it lol, you came here saying apple quality is better than Samsung lol what a joke. Samsung will soon make flexible electronics as recent reports had point out that its university researchers partners in US and south korea beat 2 hard challenges to make flexible electronics.
Toyota is like Samsung it owns chevy in both quality and quantity
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2009Jealousy? Umm, excuse me? You're the one going in here on iphone's thread to promote your Omni... morethe jealousy iSheep had to reply of course its obvious reply
you said there is no camera phone that would be better than standalone camera ? oh yeah hahaha why do you think i am gonna box my standalone camera then ? because phone cameras match my camera may i remind you that standalone cameras are becoming obsolete because most of phones that can take photos are better than standalone cameras. Canon figured out how to make a built in HD shooting in a bulky device in 2009 wow what an innovation that must be can you name something else besides canon ? . Samsung managed to created in 12mm thick device. the CPU is 600 MHZ that can also processes 720p HD video, shut up please the omniaHD's 8MP camera smokes every other 8MP standalone camera, its "called digital", analog cameras no longer exist now lets talk about the video. quality is the brightness,contrasts,colors etc... which is something obvious had to be good, the resolution is 720p there's no such quality that decrease your resolution same applies to the photo, the more MP the better it be, 8MP(3264x2448) would looks noiseless on any highest resolution that exist, even the nvida GTX 295 can't match that resolution so seeing photos on 1680x1050 or 1920x1200 looks noiseless, have you seen the comparison between the iphone and the omnia 5MP, the iphones 2MP resolution looks noisiness while the omnias 5MP looks noiseless apart it is has better vivid color,bright,contrast which depends on quality of the processor. some cameras that was release 2 or up to 3 years ago had LED flash, i have not good a problem with that.
who would you carry laptop to watch hd videos seriously ? we are talking about compatibility , do you carry your desktop because your laptop can't handle such powerful graphics ? i don't think so.
"With the iphone, battery replacement is even better. Either way, you have to buy the battery at the store"
wrong on a million and deniable, when you go to the store you don't have to take your phone for they to open in it with tools and replace the battery for you. you just buy the battery and replace it by yourself whenever you want at your home,car,shopping,travel etc just by removing the cover, many of iPhone users wished it had battery removable actually there was a lawsuit action against apple. just admit it you're wrong.
"Unlocked phones jeopardizes warranty and service. It's better when you play by the rules =) But hey, it's your choice. I am happy with AT&T."
what ? warranty and service are provided by the store, buying a phone from carrier is the worst you can do.
"My iphone has 16gb of internal memory. I've had for a year now. I've only used 6gb. I don't need 32gb. You said "what if i need FM to hear my favorite country's stations", with Pandora, all you have to do is search that genre and it will play all country music songs commercial free. You can even rate it, that way Pandora can even narrow down song choices to your type of songs."
easy 32GB on the samsung are because of the HD video so when you travel you can store up to 15hrs HD video, iphone doesn't need that much i see your point there. you gotta have internet connection for pandora. tell me where i can i find a wifi connection or 3G for free when i am out ?
Multitouch alternative with just one finger!!!!
hope come up with a web browser zoom plugin

Sir Josiah, 21 Mar 2009Learn to read man, I said that the iPhone had better pictures because it actually exists. My p... morewhat do you mean the iPhone had better pictures ? you meant that is has the shinny apple logo ? lol does that make the design better than any other thing. i didn't know that apple hires people to comment here.
well let me remind you what you just said, you said the iphone has better image quality than the omnia not HD, sorry don't change arguments, you failed to prove your claims and your argument is irrelevant. go try to sell your old iphone on ebay as there is gonna be a new one which you will melt for it since your current iphone can't do half of things that nowadays phones do.
i buy everything if its shiny and made by apple - iSheep courtesy
