All this hype, and for what? There barely any difference from this and the first one. My n95 8gb owns this phone. And the Samsung i900 puts this sad excuse for a phone to shame. I'ma get that i900 when it comes out and show everyone with their gay iphones what a phone really is, just like I did with my n95 8gb :)
While I agree with most comments that the new iPhone still lags behind other phones on certain features, the one thing Apple has nailed is the User Interface.
I have Win Mobile 6.1 Pro on my TyTN II and it still sucks. The OS painfully slow, touch screen is not that responsive, they just now added threaded text,UI poorly laid out, apps running in the background drain the battery, etc. I could go on.
I think for my next personal phone I'll check some SE's and Nokia. The iPhone or Blackberry will likely be my next work phone as that is what my company is standardizing on now.
what a grand disappointment.
- NO mms.
- NO video recording.
- NO front-facing camera for video calls
- NO autofocus / flash.
- NO VGA display.
- NO 32GB version.
call me whatever you want. but with all the hype that's been circling this "godly" device, all that us, consumers are being left with is a telling truth - apple will ALWAYS leave out some achingly desirable feature(s). oh well, at least there'll be room for improvement. plenty of it.
that aint true at the apple store read under where it says att pan sold separetly
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2008This "new" iphone 3g is so far, far, far away from phones like the HTC Touch Diamond or Samsun... moreno second camera,no video rec.,no card slot,no mms,no radio... htc diamond is the best
the iphone is junk for all non att customers. you have to get it activated the apple store or att store. they wont even sell you one unless you have a contract and data plan.
dont believe me? check gizmodo and any other site that had coverage at WWDC08
Good Job Steve, but is it $ 199 as promised, is there an unlocked version for overseas. It would had been great if the Camera is 5 megapixel and can record video. Apple rules !!!
This "new" iphone 3g is so far, far, far away from phones like the HTC Touch Diamond or Samsung's I900...
Helloooo !!! this is going to be THE phone, with this specs and gps and PRICE of 199$...
what on earth!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is what yall apple fans have been tooting and hooting about for so long? sigh! hahahhahahahhahahahhahahahah
ahahahhahhahahahhaha! inhale exhale cough choke!
what a joke. is apple serious?
everyother touchscreen device which has come out after the original iphone has better specs than this. i am being serious now people- dont just go on brand name, you wwant functionality and samsung, htc and se all have better touch and non touch devices which out-do , out-class and out-rank iphone 2
price is not 200 as mentoned, much higher, and it is still F***ing 2.0 MP camera :( seriosly, only the marketing thing makes this phone popular.
can somebody pls tell me can we fwd sms which is sent by you by one person to another?
WHAT? NO WI-FI 802.11N?
That would've been been kinda revolutionary as I haven't seen any other phone with 802.11n capability. I do realize its still in draft mode...
otherwise, a sweet deal - $200 for an 3G iphone. But i agree with someone else who wrote that owning an iPhone won't be any more unique than owning a razr. everyone's gonna have one now...
Hello all I have seen the new phone and I have to say this Apple really dropped the ball on this one. They will get there people in the US but this phone will go nowhere in Europe and Asia. It is still the same phone minus a few tweaks. Most glaring it is still 2mp with no flash or video functionality. I guess my next purchase will be either the HTC Diamond or the New Samsung. I am a avid Apple fan but sometimes I really think that they can take advantage
