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???

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 ....

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...
3G only in Australia, hahahhaha.. You're not the only country/continent that has 3g networks. Ever thought about Europe?
We have 3G and HSDPA here in the Philippines. The 3G Iphone will be hitting the Philippine shores within this year through one of our network providers.. Although i'm not sure if i'm going to upgrade the current iphone that I have right now...
Omnia, 13 Jun 2008Released where? Apple will sell hundreds of thousands of more units than any other current mod... moremore accurately is about to be released. The consensus of opinion seems to be that Omnia is a better phone and better featured. Specs seem to confirm the latter, and in 5 years I have never had a prob with Samsung. I like the consistency of WM with my pc. Everything gets updated so all you can do is buy at a point in time, and make a judgement then about what suits your needs
