A clear demonstration of fundamentalism. To make a point we all have to be categorized into either professional photographers going around with our SLRs and a buch of lenses, or we must have a crappy camera on the phone, like the iPhone.
Sorry, my friend, I want it all. Because I can: all other phone manufacturers offer it.
I own 4 digital cameras, all for different uses (from an DSLR, to a pocket one), and I still want a phone with a decent camera. Because there are moments I don't have any of my 4 cameras, and I still want to make a decent picture? Does it make me a customer who's out of the curve? I don't think so. I think I am similar to more and more people who seek creativity in the smallest things.
I printed and shown some situational pictures taken in Brazil, in BW, with my 5MP SonyEricsson K805i in 10x13', and nobody can say they're "cell-phone-pictures".
Anyway... just watch the voting results for the iPhone in this site, and compare to most other smartphones.

Judging from your cool way to answer to my quite provocative post, and from h... moreI am an apple user and also owns macbook pro..
people saying that they need 5 or 8 mp cam to takes good picture,,
if u're really a photographer I bet u will Never takes photo using your phone since no matter how good the cam of your phone it will never match your SLR, or blah cam with good quality...
if people takes picture JUST using their phone they do it for fun and i don see anything wrong with iPhone's cams since it is enough for people who takes pics for FUN (read: not for job or pro photographer)
Then iphone users make excuses for apples crummy camera by saying oh i have a separate camera anyways! Most people want an all round good device in one which is not iphone with no video recording and a crummy camera! NO front camera for 3g!!!

She lost the receipt so she lives with the problem ipod!
I was searching up things about the iPhone and stumbled across an article. Anyone read about this story. It's weird.

Judging from your cool way to answer to my quite provocative post, and from how fast you did it, is qite clear to me that you work for Apple in damage control.
Anyway, regarding the digital camera issue, it is undeniable that digital cameras today are more and more present in people's everyday life. If they could, they'd bring them all the time with them. Just in case.
Hard to image though going around all the time with an iPhone in one pocket and a digital cam in the other one...!
Today, phones with 5 or 8 megapixels (like the Nokia N95 or the Sony C905) are good enough to satisfy this photo thirst.
I am an Apple user (I own a MacBook Pro), and I found unforgivable that Apple didn't throw in the iPhone 3G at least a 3 MP camera. It is almost an insult to people's intelligence, to throw all these cute effects, and not be at the level of competition with important features (just check the HTC HD that is coming up).

Why? Because the quality of camera phones photos are not even close to the quality of standalone digital cameras. Ideally, camera phones are only good as back ups or for playing around. And 2mp is good enough for that reason.
The iphone offers lots of apps that weighs more importance and usefulness than megapixels.

When I see the fundamentalist passion of iPhone users, who say it is useless to have a decent camera, etc, it is quite clear to me these people are poor-spirited blinded gadget freaks, who make a cellular phone much more than it should be: a good and complete pocket tool. Besdides the "Apple effect", I guess they are also entertained and impressed by the cool interface (they must feel like in "Minority Report", or another futuristic movie), it must awaken their "inner child". Let them buy their iPhones and pretend life is more exciting that way.
Can anyone tell me if there is any software that can be downloaded so that i can choose to open email attachments just like on the blackberry?
true, 21 Sep 2008if it was not made by apple u would not touch this fone,true False.
Please dont attempt to speak for the whole population of iPhone users. I for one would have bought this phone wether it was made by Apple or not. Therefor you are wrong.
