could some one give me this new toy for free? my N95 is a real PHONE!!
Luke, 11 Jun 2008Oh wait, there is bluetooth. Phew.Aparently it's just headset support, like the old one... So no paring it with other people phones
does anybody know why apple isn't releasing the new iphone in many parts of the world? we have got the 1st gem iPhones here without warranty, for $600(8gigs), and after reading the article about the new iPhone 3g being over $1200, seems like we're never going to get it.
some features from other phone are missing its like the browser safari compare to other internet browser with several supports
fantastic news and looks like it will be a works in progress as time goes by more features will be added
Agreed, stop complaining about the camera, it's a PHONE! Many popular phones only have a 2mp camera anyway. CLearly it's too much effort for Apple to put a 5mp one in.
The real thing to complain about is no MMS or proper Bluetooth, that's the real problem with this phone.
Doesn't surprise me they failed at computers now they failed at phones.
I am Decide to buy the 2G i-phone on around March 2008, but the specs of the i-phone was not as nice as I expected. But I know from some resources that Apple Corporation will launch the new 3G i-phone. Now On 11 of July, Apple will market 3G i-phone broadly in North America, Central & South America, Europe, Asia & Australia country at the same time. But regretted, 3G i-phone is only available in Singapore (not enter Malaysia and Indonesia market yet). i-phone 3G price is cheaper than 2G i-phone, for 8GB= $199 & 16 GB= 299 (Locked Series). After Unlocked Series, 3G i-phone becomes expensive, 8GB= $499 and 16GB= $599 (Unreasonable price / price discrimination after the 3G i-phone is unlocked). For more information, refers to http://www.apple.com/iphone/specs.html
I can't seem to find if they changed the biggest failure of all: can you now text in landscape mode?
PS. Who cares about the camera? It's a phone! Have to agree that it's rediculous they didn't include bluetooth file transfer; it's a handy, basic function in any $30 phone. A word of advice to apple (even though there's no way Apple will actually read this): listen to what people WANT, if you want to reach more people than your standard fanbase.
please stop complaining about the camera,2MP is fine for a quick snap. Serious photos should only ever be taken on a camera not one that rings. You don't buy an iphone for the camera or the video calls or anything else other than its an iPhone.
I know where i'll be on 11th July in line picking up my new iphone!
I have been waiting for this for ages !!! I cant wait to get mine !!! =]
is the price of this only fixed 199? or is that just a promo or something?
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2008look at the nokia n96, the iphone is terrible compared to it.hahaha its the oposite. This is 100 times better than old fashion n96. SE and APPLE RULE
First of all, function wise, It didn't really get a big uprise in terms of functions.
Camera is STILL shit. Nokia is bring out 5mp cameras WITH autofocus and flash. What does Apple have to say about that?
2nd, no video calling... ON A 3G DEVICE. I'm so astounded that there's no front camera. Apple screwed up big time.
With the 199.. its not as cheap as you think, considering that all retailers will include it on a 2-3 year plan. If you think about how much the phone will cost afterwards, you're actually paying more than the the Iphone original.
3rd... What the hell is THE haptic feedback? NO haptic feedback = no no for apple. even on their touch screen device.
Audio, again, isn't that good. I've had my N82, and it sounds WAY better in terms of acoustics and bass when compared to the regular iPhone.. I doubt the music will improve. Not good.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2008What processor does it have? I have seen nowhere this spec. Thank you.look at the nokia n96, the iphone is terrible compared to it.
what's wrong with apple's camera phones, it's either ytou put a good camera...or DON'T!
that's a pro mobilephone, it's a shame to have 2 MP in the thrid generation of an APPLE's invention!
wut do you think ppl?
mw, 10 Jun 2008can u use the bluetooth to transfer data to other devices?or is just for the headset like before.No you cant...Bluetooth for only headset as older iphone...This is saks men......Some one should remind to APPLE > ..
