BlackBerry Bold User, 31 Oct 2008Why didn't you buy the BlackBerry Bold? I chose the BlackBerry Bold over this phone and I thin... moreThat must be why the US senate is switching from Blackberries to iPhones.
There is one thing RIM and Blackberry does better than anyone and that's email, except when Microsoft messes around with Exchange, which has caused some issues in the past.
OSX is easily the most powerful operating system ever put into a mobile device, Apple has always kept to proprietary hardware they will not change that particularly given their recent success.
Developers have only begun to scratch the surface as far as applications go.
"Developers of Documents to Go are now bringing Microsoft Office to the iPhone. They even put up a dedicated web page for the service’s imminent release. You gotta wonder though; since copying and pasting are important functions for the Office programs, does that mean the iPhone is expected to get them soon or are the developers of Documents to Go relying on a hack for copy and paste? Regardless, iPhone users can soon get Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on their fruit-flavored phones including support for 2007 versions."
Read life reality :
Technology pioneer Apple has posted a dramatic increase in profits after seeing sales soar over the past three months.
Announcing the company's results for the financial quarter ending in September, Apple said that it had seen sales of computers, mobile phones and iPods rise dramatically over the same period in 2007.
The company shipped more than 2.6m Mac computers, 11m iPods and almost 6.9m iPhones, leading to revenues of $7.9bn and profits of $1.14bn. That increase marks a profit increase of more than 26% over the same period last year.
"Apple just reported one of the best quarters in its history, with a spectacular performance by the iPhone – we sold more phones than [BlackBerry maker] Research In Motion," said Apple chief executive Steve Jobs.

The market is king and determines the success of a product not the comments from a brailess blogger
Why then Apple sold more Iphones than Blackberries in the last Quarter ?

Fair enough, enjo... moreI am not biased. All my points regarding multi-tasking are founded. I cannot afford the Storm. I don't know how much it's going to cost, but I already have the iPhone. I just feel duped.
Apologies for ranting here, but I wanted to share my dismay, if there was someone like me who's in the process of buying a phone like this, coming from a background where PUSH Technology is a necessity, not a luxury.
Nothing beats the iPhone for music, photos, media viewing, and third party apps. It blows everything else out of the water. But it's no multi-tasking device, IMHO.
iLUVZtehIPOWNZ, 30 Oct 2008Thanks for the reply!
I guess this phone really is THE phone that does multi-task for SMS. ... moreSo you want to change the definition of multitasking to suit your biases?
Fair enough, enjoy the Storm when it is released.

I guess this phone really is THE phone that does multi-task for SMS. I just wish that it can connect and simultaneously chat with people on Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk, Facebook, while I route something on Google Maps, all at the same time, and is also capable of synchronizing with my Google Calendar over the air.
All of those, while I have a game paused running in the background, and the browser pointed to my favorite news website, while I am typing an email to several of my clients.
While I am playing WMA/MP3/AAC encoded music.
That, for me, is multi-tasking. Something I was doing back with my ugly BlackBerry Curve. It was ugly, but the battery life was great, and it did ALL THAT.
I guess, it's my bad, I was spoiled. :(
Is that a lot too much to ask? I mean, the iPhone is so beautiful, and it does have Safari (best browsing experience so far, as long as you don't browse more than three web pages at once), but multi-taskin on it is a joke.
You're considering the ALARM function a part of the multi-tasking? Come on man, then that makes the Nokia 1100 a multi-tasking phone as well?
you mean a bad whine...lol.
people are buying this because of the name brand and influences from their peers.
I was wondering why are you guys posting negetive opinions and complains about the IPHONE instead go to the phone you love and say how wonderfull it is over there ????
therock, 30 Oct 2008the iphone users egos are way up the charts.
apple copied the first touchscreen... moreApple copied the touchscreen, from other phone manufacturers did they?
"The Apple Newton, or simply Newton, is the iPhone's predecessor and was an early line of personal digital assistants developed and marketed by Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) First developed in 1992, it was sold from 1993 to 1998."
So which phone prior to 1992 did they copy?
Palm didn't exist, HTC didn't exist.
But don't let the facts get in the way of a good whine.
i am sure nokia, samsung, htc, will build better touchscreens.
if they will only be able to put inside the Apple software....
SE XPERIA X1 is a much better phone than the Iphone!!!
I used both phones now and overall the X1 is a much better phone.
It's about time that the Iphone hype stops, because there are much better new phones than the Iphone.

Anonymous, 30 Oct 2008This are only the speculations,apple have allready developed an new IPHONE way beyond all othe... moredo have you the new iphone? how do u know that?
if the next iphone is feature pack, i am sure nokia, samsung, htc, will build better touchscreens.
it is a competition.
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2008This are only the speculations,apple have allready developed an new IPHONE way beyond all othe... morethen this (the new iphone) i got to see.
As i stated before....missing features + upgraded camera with a powerful flash + the touchscreen and features it already has = one powerhouse device.
if that equation is included in the next iphone, i may consider getting another one. ( i do have the iphone 3g but got tired of it so i bought an n95 because i was after the conveniency of an all-around device: camera, internet, and phone.
