come on apple, i was looking forward to putting my n95 into retiremeant with ur lastest offering. Il wait until next year, it needs AT LEAST a 3.2 megapixel camera, a front camera for video calls and a 32gb capacity wouldnt be bad. Overall this ones great, great price great improvement but il hold on for another year with my n95.
come on man... is a 199$ phone with GPS and 3G and revolutionary touchscreen. forget about 5 megepizels camera becouse a camera is nat bassed only in a lot of megapixels.
good work apple! love this phone my opinion is that you dont need blue tooth or mms or a better camera then 2mp too bad theres no video call camera but othervise it rocks
MMS? I didn't see it listed under the messaging specifications. Gotta have my MMS!
glad it finally has 3g and GPS , but still the same old 2mp cam widout video & no bluetooth file transfer ... but wid a price tag of $199 for the 8gb model , i'm not complaining :)
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2008if you need to shot something seriously then grab a digital camera,do not blame the phone.Ahhh but everyone IS blaming the phone, my friend. How can apple announce a brand new phone like this?
It does NOT have full 3G support. The camera is a piece of crap. It is only 2MP and and DOESN'T record video. Why should consumer and the other faithful followers of Apple put up with a second-rate phone who's only gimmick and selling point is some fancy touch screen?
How can it to be call a 3G phone without the videocall function? Still 2mp camera without flash? Should be 3.2mp or better than that. Bluetooth not fully function.. Gosh..!! and last NO MMS..!!
Too bad there's no iPhone here in the Philippines.. I heard the Int'l news, and they're selling this for only $199.. Well you get more what you pay for!! I'm jealous!
Does it still locked on bluetooth just with Apple Products?
and can i Forward PreExisting Message?or i have to rewrite it again?
well, Everyone says that iphone 3g don't have frontal camera to do video calls... LOL, How many people do video calls??? This is a great phone with the most important features well developed for the present day...
Why doesn't this phone have bluetooth 2.1? The AirMac has it... 2.1 has been out since October of last year, why are phone makers taking to long to make 2.1 phones???
How many of you still do not realise this:
THE $199/$299 PRICE IS IF YOU BUY IT ON CONTRACT WITH AT&T. IT SAYS SO ON THE APPLE WEBSITE.
If you want to buy the iphone unlocked it will cost WAY more than $299.
I am very disappointed and feel sorry for the folks buying the brand. Everyone, please stop for a second and think about what you are getting for what you paid!!? They could have included MMS, IM, and Video Telephony.
does this phone hve sim?
bcause i live in phils and i wnt 2 buy 1 in states so does it hve sim???
8GB - 199
16GB - 299
the old iphone will be drop like water fall
apple is giving us a great deal but they're losing alot of profits from doing this.
plus this new iphone 3g is not improving much
only the - 3g, battery, gps, the looks, the sounds and the 3.5mm jack.
but how about the bluetooth, the camera, and memery slot?
if they can manage to improve that too, this iphone will be worth for buying.
Oh boy!!!! All the waiting and all the hype...For what. I was very impressed with my iphone and could handle the lack of features, But I thought iphone 2 would shut up all the haters. I can admit im wrong, Apple do the same...it's not good enough!
I have loved HTC diamond, but its too expensive if compares to the Iphone 3G. The Iphone is not the best phone ever, but delivery the best cost/benefits. For the ones that don`t have a 3G phone the question is: $700 for a Unlocked Diamond or $200 for a Iphone 3G?
The Apple strategy is great!!!!
