I'm confused: How is having a 3G Nokia, which is obviously much more expensive when purchased unlocked, going to be any cheaper to use on a carrier in the US? And, what US carrier sells or supports it?
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2008who ever waiting for this phone so not worth it rather wait for the Nokia N96. Just because it... moreNo, not the N96...
Sony Ericsson's Xperia
It's already been dubbed the iPhone killer
who ever waiting for this phone so not worth it rather wait for the Nokia N96. Just because its the new thing out there everyone going on about it. Seen the 2G version and it suck what makes everyone thinks this is going to be better.
Dissapointed! I thought Apple will build in video call feature, but is not.
Apple is good of making profit & money out from its products.
1st iphone without 3G,
2nd iphone with 3G (but without video call features)
3rd iphone (future - 3G with video call features).
Just imagine how much Apple had made. I suggest don't buy this coming 3G iphone (without video call features).
pastor, 11 Jun 2008Still its a stupid phone bluetooth still on headset support and no front camera for video call... moreApple just fail.
They failed at computers now they fail at phones.
Fail Fail Fail
Still its a stupid phone bluetooth still on headset support and no front camera for video calls still no MMS support and still a mediocre camera with no flash too expensive! too dumb! why dont they put all the nice goodies like at least a 3.2 camera with at least led flash then a front camera for video calls and MMS support then a bluetooth pairing to other phones for sure they'l beat nokia and SE
the iphone gen 2 will cost 199$ with a new contract which means you have to pay 30 a month for the 3g iphone plus the iphone minutes which is about a 100 and so that is about 330 or so for an iphone from the store but if you buy it unlocked it will cost 1200(according to gsmarena)
If the live video calling will work with the camera on the back this means you can't see the other person even though they can see you live.
Solution. You are on a live video call and the back of the phone with the camera is facing you. Lets say you are holding it with your left hand.
Pull a mirror out of your pocket and let it face the front of the iphone !
There, now you can see the person you are talking to!
That what kind of a joke this phone is. 3g with no front camera!
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.
