Missing items on Apple's iPhone & iPhone 3G:
1. no removable battery
2. maximum screen resolution is only 320x480
3. limited 3rd party applications
4. no streaming stereo audio profile aka A2DP support
5. can only use Goolgle Maps for GPS on 3G models
6. user is locked to 1 service provider on the 3G model with contract of course and a data cap of course for big bucks
7. no Windows Live IM support
8. user is stuck using safari broswer which doesn't even support FLASH!
9. No onboard keyboard or additional addons available via bluetooth, clearly not the greatest for inputing text on the fly.
10. It's a good thing that they have wifi onboard because clearly the 3G network on the iphone is close to EDGE speeds.
11. Users can't even input a flash memory card
12. there is no 3G video calling
13. No skype
Apple iPhone in my opinion is not worth the $, periode.
Sames goes with the new unleashed G1 Google Android.
As f0r my opini0n. It was really an awes0me f0ne c0nsidering unique features like 16M c0l0rs, multi-t0uch, safari br0wser, really gener0us large screen BUT... The sh0rtc0mings in features like bluet0oth f0r data transfer, vide0, flash, l0w camera res0luti0n(MP) and external mem0ry f0r expansi0n (alth0ugh 8/16GB is really big en0ugh t0 c0nsume) is really a turn off. Oh well! There's n0 perfect f0ne... I think buying a ph0ne with iph0ne on d ch0ices is a big decisi0n 2 make. Especially f0r me. But im l0oking f0rward f0r an0ther breakthr0ugh fr0m Steve there.
jackson, 15 Dec 2008lets not talk about n97, n95 8gb can already kill iphone 3g. you can even adjust EQ in iphone ... moreWell, when audio tests are conducted properly using lab equipment as outlined here:-
Which results in whole series of numbers based on measuring various things.
What do these numbers mean?
Basically that anecdotal reports such as the following:-
"n95 8gb can already kill iphone 3g. you can even adjust EQ in iphone 3g but you can adjust 8 band EQ and the quality is way better than itouch and iphone (i compared it with my brothers) n95 8gb killed the music iphone,"
If you read the test results you will see that the iPhone absolutely wipes the floor with the N95 8GB in regard to music quality.
Now you may think that making lots of noise through a pair of tinny little speakers built into the phone makes up for this but it doesn't.
If you plug an iPhone into a high end stereo system or a pair of quality headphone's, it's then that you'll notice the difference that these numbers make.
The iPhone doesn't need to hide any inadequacies behind a multitude of equalizer presets.
lets not talk about n97, n95 8gb can already kill iphone 3g. you can even adjust EQ in iphone 3g but you can adjust 8 band EQ and the quality is way better than itouch and iphone (i compared it with my brothers) n95 8gb killed the music iphone, it also killed iphone's camera. if you just go on and on about the larger screen, dats sad because how can i entertain you by lookin at the screen? i have 2 say the video quality is bad compare to n95 8gb. n95 8gb is already outdated, lets talk about n97. actually, lets not go there because i dont want n97 2 bully dis little cute thing. bless u

That's the main difference between cheap bluetooth accessories and expensive one's.
You often get what you pay for.
I bought my iphone 8GB a week ago... I've followed all the steps provided on apple website in order to boost the battery performance.. but it doesnt improve much... i was thinking that probably I need bring it to apple genius store for assistance... for example, if they will replace a new one for me, can I pay extra money to get the iphone 16gb instead?
Allan, 15 Dec 2008That's what I used to use with my N82, it would link to the phone by bluetooth and the stereo ... moreWhen a call comes in thru a bluetooth speaker i understood there was an echo effect for the person on the receiving line. Plus wouldn't they hear traffic noise more then if you wore a bluetooth headset!
Allan, 15 Dec 2008well thats good but i said tune cast, thats where you play your device through a FM signal What are the advantages of tune casting over say this motorola bluetooth device!

Hardwired sounds a lot better.
I still use it with the iPhone to take calls.
Music cuts out, call comes through bluetooth speaker (or my headset if someone else is in the car) when I'm done the music comes back on.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2008why dont you just tune cast it then, still superior sound to a loudspeaker on a phoneMy car doesn't have bluetooth for the a2dp on my phone or a plug in for my 3.5 jack. Only listen sometimes when nothing good is on the radio. However motorola sells a bluetooth device for transmitting your bluetooth mp3 player thru your car stereo!
Allan, 15 Dec 2008Listens to music on the go! Why, does it bother you when I'm in my car!I have a dock in my car, hardwired into my stereo, I just plug in my iPhone and go.
I used to use bluetooth from my N82 but it didn't sound as good, and I still had to plug it into the charger anyway.
I don't take drugs so know where I am going and don't need GPS.
