The iphone is a smart phone , only if you know how to use it , you can jailbreak it and you can enjoy the iphone at it's maximum power. If you have an HTC diamond touch , it's the same thing but the iphone has a more stable software. What do you need MMS when you have mail? The blutooth's design was only for devices at it's begining , i don't need blutooth for trasfering music and videos. If you don't know , yout music comes with viruses on most cases , music that you transfer to a normal phone and then in to your iphone by blutooth and you can infect your iphone. Duuuuh . If you don't trust me , try it and then you will see i'm right
Whenever a new handset is announced it starts a flood of comparisons against a cell phone that it will be competing with. The latest announcement from Nokia is the newest N-Series phone, the N97. So what phone will the N97 be competing with, well that would be the new Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1.
Both phones are very similar in design, apart from the fact that the N97 has much rounder edges, I really like the design of these two phones. So let us look at the features of each phone to see how they match up.
The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 3.15 inch touchscreen, Full QWERTY keyboard, 3.15 megapixel camera with autofocus and video camera. Other features include GSM, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Built-in GPS receiver, up to 833 hours standby and up to 10 hours talktime.

Nokia N97 features include, 3.5 touchscreen, Full QWERTY keyboard, A-GPS sensors and an electronic compass, 32GB storage with a further 16GB microSD available, giving the phone up to 48GB storage. Other features include, 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, G, Wi-Fi and much more.
It is hard to choose between the two, as both phones look sexy, but the specs on the Nokia N97 shows the iphone up by 7billion miles.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Yeah yeah. Bluetooth and mms. If u say who needs mms, i understand we don't need it cuz we can use the email to send photos.
But bluetooth, its important. You are missing something here. You wanna send videos, music, photos to your iPhone?? Oh wait, you can't.
And not only that. A miserable 2 megapixel camera with no video recording capabilities, no extra functions, no flash. And if you are talking about 2009, 2009 phones have 8 megapixel cameras, excellent video recording and flash. The phones now have 4x amount of megapixels (and you better not say that the megapixels does not mean they have good picture qualities, the 4 megapixel cameras are so much better than the miserable 2 megapixel iphone camera).
I understand that the touch screen, user-friendliness, wide screen ipod, etc. are one of the best. But look at this in another way. Millions of people own an iphone now. Too common. If you say "wow, i got an iphone!", it aint unique cuz probably 10million people have the same phone.
And also i have an ipod touch, thus, I can get a phone with a better camera and different functions. iPod Touch is the same as the iphone except with no camera, bluetooth, 3G, can't call, can't sms, no GPS.
And sometimes, 2 is better than one. People will say "Wow, u got an iPod Touch and a 8 megapixel camera phone."
does applications in my ipod touch compatible with iphone and vice versa? thanks!!
i am new user of iphone.. and i really love it!! but i want to install more applications esp games to it.. where can i download it for free?? thanks!!

I have never known a phone as poor as this. Apple are clearly very good at marketing. My advice to anybody reading this is to not buy it! Compare every feature with the Sony Ericsson C905 for instance. The iPhone has no universal Bluetooth, no MMS, a 2.0 mp camera with no flash/Video. Its no better than a Nokia 6300. Its just nice to use. Seriously this is an idiots phone. And its so damn expensive.
Can Apple come out the next IPhone which have 3G 2ndary videocall and not so big design like SE X1? I am sure that many people will get it.
imran, 13 Jan 2009is it true? you can not make videos with IPHONE 3G and you can not send MMS or share files wit... moreYes it is true, if these things are important to you buy something else, like a Samsung i8510 or something.
It’s too much cool & sexy and beneficent for normal use. i really like to use and its reception is very nice i really like it.

Pepsi, 12 Jan 2009I bought mine when it first came out too, I got it on a $69 plan and had to pay $189 or $169 (... moreLet me guess, you must have the 8GB...
...I must be psychic!
I got the 16GB for $319, now it's $191 on the $69 or $121 on the $79.
The price you pay to go on American websites for a few hours before they could even get it!

If u know please let me know at my email.
Heath, 11 Jan 2009Yeah i know that there cheaper now but im just showing people from around the world a quick vi... moreI bought mine when it first came out too, I got it on a $69 plan and had to pay $189 or $169 (can't remember, so long ago) upfront for the phone. Now you can get it for free! And the $79 plans are so much better!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Actually it doesn't if it has a hardware issue, e.g. battery stops working, then that's still covered by warranty.
All you have to do is plug it into iTunes and hit restore and it reloads the original software.
