many other asean and european countries have 3G service not only australia.. and you can use the iphone with only one hand just that typing with both hands is faster.. im sure typing with both thumbs on a normal phone is also faster than typing with one thumb only.
I would get this phone in a heart beat if or when it goes on the vodafone network.
I had a really bad experience with O2 so I’ll never go on their network again.
I agree with those who say that 3G is available in many contries.
If I may just say 4G is for example WiMax. We have 4G in Bulgaria for two years already. Mtel (Bulgaria) which is part of Mobilkom Austria Group since September 2005, has HSDPA (which is 3,5G) coverage in major cities since the beginning of 2005 and it was the fifth operator in the world to launch HSDPA with 14,4 Mbps possibility. However we all know that the fastest end-user device is capable only of 7,2 Mbps.
HSDPA is fast, it is different than 3G and just like the latter has problems inside buildings.
Thank you for the attention.
The Iphone is horrible. I am unfortunate yo own one because I couldnt aford a Nokia n95. From the crappy speaker and the frustrating syncing to only one computer, It is a phone made to make more money for apple after you bye it. Im waiting for the N96. They can keep there 199 3g
A nice design, but Apple is become too anti-competitive these days, even more so than Microsoft. What's with these exclusivity deals which do nothing for everyday consumers.
Hopefully, the European Competition Commission are thinking about taking action against them, since they are creating barriers to trade in Europe. That will teach them!
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G. Poin... moreTONS of counrties have 3g. UK, Europe, South Africa, Australia and even New Zealand. Just cause America might not have it does not mean the rest of the world doesnt. The iphone is brilliant, it lacks in many departments, but it is worlds ahead in many other.
japan was the first country to establish 3G, investigate your sources deeper. More than 73 countries are using 3G right now...
3G is old in Canada. Its not a big deal here We have it for some time now Rogers Canada look it up.
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G. Poin... moreWell. We have 3G in sweden and have had it for for many years. We have 4G (Wimax) just around the corner (2009-2010) as well. =)
In Europe I think that Orange is going to sell this phone. I heard some time ago about a law suite intended by Vodafone but in the end Orange got the first hand. At least, in RO Orange will sell the iphone 3G. Also, both Vodafone and Oange have 3G coverage (HSDPA 7.2 Mbps) in every major city in the country and some major roads.
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G.3G is now every where except asia i guess cos i never hear 3G there.... but my brother is using 3G he is in europe , i used 3G on AT&T they even put 3G enable sim cards in non 3G iphone.... now am living in UAE 3G is every where ....where ever you can make video call that mean 3G is there... only 3G enable mobile phones can make video calls and watch live tv.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970He/she is actually from Australia, Perth I'm guessing since we share the same IP.
Anyway... I have heard so many rumours about how much it is... Some people say $199 for the 8gb and $299 for the 16gb, and some say it's that price only on a contract for 2 years with an additional plan.
But if you think about it, an iPod Touch is about $600AUD so it seems too cheap for $199
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G. Poin... morethis is not true 3.5G which is faster then 3G is in all over middle east and UAE am using in almost evry day with my laptop or on the road with n95 ....
we are using3g in limited area but using the real 3g not like uk 3g that gives the speed of edge hahaha
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G. Poin... moreshame dude... i take it you dont have 3G... here in SOUTH AFRICA - ya, believe it cus its true - we're onto our 3rd year with HSDPA, and our 5th year with 384k 3G... Australia is one of the many countries which has 3G... its so weird to see that the US's cellular network infrastructure doesnt even compare to my 3rd world South Africa...
