I agree, the BlackBerry Bold's been a big disappointment for me as well. I was looking to upgrade to it, then Apple released the APP STORE, all was good.
I never experienced my old BlackBerry Curve crashing from too many applications. Probably because I knew it would be stupid to run them all at the same time if I didn't need them anyway.
I can see where Apple is coming from, in implementing multi-tasking halfway. Stability. And that is the very reason why I recommend the phone to those who don't know better, because it's a solid performer.
I on the other hand, need to have push data (Email, IM, RSS) arriving in different apps at the same time. That's something I hope that Apple will implement in the future. They have the hardware, but the software is just crippled.

Then the iphone should have voice dialing! Another safety feature while driving when using a bluetooth earpiece.

iLUVZtehIPOWNZ, 09 Nov 2008I concede. Ignorance is bliss. LoL...and a phone freezing in the middle of a call due to background applications using too many resources is smart?
I thought the primary function of a phone is to make and receive calls.
Blackberries are ok as long as Microsoft doesn't change Exchange too much as has happened on several occasions in the past.
Do you remember when BES stopped working until a fix was found, hopefully it won't happen again, BIS fares a bit better but doesn't give the full functionality.
Of course Microsoft is very understanding of it's competitors. ;)
The Bold was a bit of a dud, maybe the Storm will do better.
Having played around with the T-Mobile G1, I can still the recommend the iPhone over it. The G1 is a toy, although I can see the potential of the platform, it just isn't as well thought out like the iPhone.

Was it a java app you used on it's S40 platform?
Even the latest S60 phones require additional software in order to do it.

wtf are you on about.
How many of these tasks can you see on screen at once?
How long does it take an iPhone to launch an application so you can continue where you left off?
Especially seeing as resources aren't being used by other things.
No-one cares, you understand, do whatever you want with your smart phone that can't even run Google Earth.

A BlackBerry 8700!
No one else has come close towards the efficiency in using a BlackBerry. Nay sayers either haven't used one, or didn't know how to use it.
Enter the iPhone, user-friendliest interface even somebody with no hands can use.
john, 09 Nov 2008hi everybody..
I'm planning to buy a phone and my choices are the SE G700, P1i and the iphon... moreGet the iPhone. The P1i sucks major a$$. Sony Ericsson well, that's a coin toss.
The iPhone has enough apps to beat the other two out of the functionality department. If you can, get the 3G version, it's better to use the phone in 3G speeds.
Okay, I apologise to the people who still think this is a multi-tasking device. I concede. It's a multi-tasking phone alright, kinda like my old Nokia 6233. I mean, when I'm listening to music, I can browse the web. Beautiful stuff.
To be precise, the iPhone is NOT a multi-tasking smartphone. Wait, let's make that shorter. It's NOT a smartphone.
The moment you can easily switch between applications running in the background easily, then that puts the iPhone in the smartphone category.
It's like labeling LINKIN PARK as Metal, when they're actually not. But they get away with it, and deceive the masses just because it receives emails from multiple accounts, kinda like my Nokia 6233.
Thanks for the definition of multi-tasking by the way, I didn't know people here were so LITERAL. LoL
I'm planning to buy a phone and my choices are the SE G700, P1i and the iphone.
However i wondered whats the difference between the iphone 3G and the iphone? is it just the 3G support? and wats the difference in prices between these 2?
Also, i would like to know ur opinions about these 3 phones so that i can make the best choice..
