I live in Dhaka, Bangladesh and bought iPhone 3GS from Kuala Lumpur last December, 2009. It is no doubt the most expensive hand set in the market. Before buying it I really never understood why iPhone is so popular both in terms of its good & bad side.
My father bought Omnia 2 at the same time, Omnia has mind blowing features with awesome performace, it is mini note book with calling facility. On the other hand iPhone 3GS is completely a different experience. Frankly speaking in the last 12-13 years of my cell phone usage experience I have never come across some quite as great as iPhone 3GS. If you remove the applications from the phone, then it is nothing more than hugely expensive touch screen phone. But then again the performance and pedegree of iPhone 3GS is what makes it unique.
Touch screen of this phone is undoubdtedly THE BEST in the market. I've used N97, SE X1, Omnia ......... but iPhone 3GS is a class apart. I still don't know why people complain so much about their hatred towards iPhone, may be because it is priced so high. iPhone 3GS is like the SLK of Marc and 7series of BMW, which we all want to buy but since we can't afford it (myself included) so we all get jealous of others and start complaing about it..
Bottom line, if you can spend and want to have a great experience then one must try it. This phone does have its cons, but then again which phone doesn't have ........ battery life is weak, well if you are too much into iPhone 3GS's mesmerizing features for the whole day then certainly the gadget does needs to recharge itself to keep you entertained for the next day.
Will I buy iPhone 4G? ..... well I got to see how SE X10 or Google's Nexus performs first, only then I may wish to switch.
To all those who moan about the battery life, here is a tip!.. Switch the 3G and push mail off!.. It's that simple. If you use it the battery is going to runout quicker, a ten year old can tell you that.
You iPhone is like a high performance car, and when you push a high performance car you get the perfomance you want at the cost of burning more gas, same with battery life! My iPhone lasts me up to 4 days without charging, and regular use.
Great phone. Defiantly one of the best, and easiest to use! Only if the HTC HD2 had the ease of the iPhone OS.
Some information from Apple's Q4 financial reports:-
Record 8.7 million iPhones sold Revenue for iPhone handset sales, accessories, and carrier payments was $5.58 billion.
Average Selling Price of about $620 for the iPhone during the quarter. Added 17 new carriers during the quarter. iPhone distribution now in 86 countries.
Business carriers ranked the iPhone No. 1 in JD Power's customer satisfaction survey in the second year in a row. Business adoption is strong.
Over 70 percent of the Fortune 100 deploying iPhone. Penetration doubled since the iPhone 3GS first shipped this last summer. However, Cook declined to comment on whether the "halo" effect applied to iPod use in the consumer markets could lead to Mac adoption in the corporate world.
More than 200,000 iPhones have been sold in China with carrier China Unicom. Cook said Apple is concentrating now on the customer experience and point of sales.
"We would prefer to move slow because we're building the brand for the long term and we're very much focused on the long-term of the market, because we think there is significant potential there," Cook said. He declined to forecast where sales could go.
Including the iPod touch there are now 58 million devices running iPhone OS
