At the iPhone's introduction, Steve Jobs boldly announced that stylus-driven interfaces that Microsoft's Gates had hailed just a half decade earlier were no longer worth investigating. "Now, how are we going to communicate this?" Jobs said of the iPhone. "We don't want to carry around a mouse, right? So what are we going to do? Oh, a stylus, right? We're going to use a stylus. No. Who wants a stylus? You have to get em and put em away, and you lose em. Yuck. Nobody wants a stylus. So let's not use a stylus."
We're going to use the best pointing device in the world. We're going to use a pointing device that we're all born with -- born with ten of them. We're going to use our fingers. We're going to touch this with our fingers. And we have invented a new technology called multi-touch, which is phenomenal. It works like magic. You don't need a stylus. It's far more accurate than any touch display that's ever been shipped. It ignores unintended touches, it's super-smart. You can do multi-finger gestures on it. And boy, have we patented it."
So we have been very lucky to have brought a few revolutionary user interfaces to the market in our time. First was the mouse. The second was the click wheel. And now, we're going to bring multi-touch to the market. And each of these revolutionary interfaces has made possible a revolutionary product: the Mac, the iPod and now the iPhone."
Hi everyone, It's really amazing how much negetive comments this phone has, and it is a bestseller. To those who are complaining about what this phone does not have don't you actually look at the phone's specifications before buying it. You knew that the phone has only 3mp of camera but you went ahead and bought it now you complain about it, please... Know what you want from a mobile phone before you buy one, do your research. That's what GSMARENA is there for. If you are a business orientated person a mobile like SE X2 or N97 will let you live your laptop behind but if you are a person with too much free time then an Iphone 3gs or SE W995 will entertain you good and let you live your psp and ipod behind. All these mobile phone are good depending on what you want from them. If you got a phone that does not do what you want, then you chose the wrong phone. Don't dare blame it on the phone cause you made the wrong choice. Post real comments and reviews not stupidity...( Sorry no offence meant)
nick, 23 Jan 2010i support charlton athletic
all our games are on 94.9
that's how i hear them. obviously ... moreI can open these links with my iPhone and start listening:-
BBC iplayer site opens when you click them on an iPhone
So I could listen to the worst soccer team in the world being beaten by girl scouts on my iPhone, if I wanted to.
Without having an FM radio.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Maybe because I always carry an iPhone, it's always charged and it takes less than 10 seconds to post something on this site because it is one of the sites that is always open in Safari.
I also have 5 other sites open all the time.
mmm, 22 Jan 2010i really want to buy this phone, but i am histted coz doesn't have a bluetooth :(( plzzzz ap... more i too am a bit peeved about it not having bluetooth, it would'nt have hurt them to put one on, there are bluetooth apps you can download but they're only for using with other iphones or ipods. which is'nt very good.
i, as a apple CEO never think of using iphone bcos it is quite far behind in technology, i still prefer using nokia n900, so far im happy using n900, but my second phone will be htc HD2.
please forgive me, i know my 3gs is low end, i have to admit that, but atleast give me some face, don make me lose face here. i have so many less clever supporter here.

Anonymous, 23 Jan 2010Mr Jobs, when will you be able to put a 5 or 8 mpix camera and a nice xenon flash in your iPho... moreSo why is the SonyEricsson Satio with it's 12 Megapixel camera and xenon flash selling so badly compared to the iPhone?
Why aren't people lining up to buy them, it's even better than what you say the iPhone needs.
The camera isn't that important in relation to the whole experience of owning and using a phone.
Alan, 22 Jan 2010Waiting for 4th Gen Iphone to come out!!!!!!!!!! 3GS's battery not enug........Me too..... I'm not buying 3GS now because I'm waiting for next gen who will incorprate nice camera and true xenon flash in it..... that will make my day.....
Mr Jobs, when will you be able to put a 5 or 8 mpix camera and a nice xenon flash in your iPhone ? That will make your iPhone storms the world beyond your imagination. You did well in the Apps and the touch screen, now pls do something on your imaging hardware..... fire all your guys who failed to deliver what others are already doing.....

Alter Ego, 22 Jan 2010iPhone is a great device dont get me wrong, but a simple but powerfull application like an FM ... moreLOL. And how is an FM application powerful? There are tons of apps that are better than FM, not to mention internet. Well I understand for those who cannot afford a data plan on how important FM to them is, lol. That's probably all they do all day. And how is an LED flash be more useful than all the apps that's offered by the iphone? We're taking pictures and posting them in Facebook and Twitter w/out flash just fine. Matter of fact, it's the iphone that has the most uploaded photos on the internet. You didn't know that? lol. And how is divx support be that useful on a phone? Well I guess if you do not own a bluray player and big screen HDTV at home, then I guess I understand, lol. You obviously have no clue as to how useful the apps from the App Store are. There so many useful apps from the iphone. Some can even save lives. Did you read the news about that Haiti earthquake victim who used his iphone app to save his life? Can your camera or divx do that? lol.
Also, the iphone is a great phone not just because of its apps, but because of it's quality, speed, storage, music player, internet, UI and OS.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2010it does't have 1.Front cam. 2.Led flash. 3.radio. 4.bluetooth. 5.handwriting recognition.... moreWell that's because those features that you have enumerated and less important than the good features that the iphone has. Simple as that. And yes, the iphone is an amazing phone.

Do you like the pretty green and pink tinged photos the E71 takes?
Has your menu disappeared yet?
I just sold my iphone 3gs only after 2 weeks. i whas loyal to apple from the start. this is what happended:
ihpone 2g whas nice, revolutionary, bought it... when nokia fans had 5mp, gps, 3g, i was stuck with, what it seemed from it's specs, a 2 year old phone..
when 3g came out, wow... it had GPS but no other navigation software. google maps it's not that great...
when i bought 3gs i thought this is it, it's a 3rd gen it should work.. F@#$, it just has a 3MP camera now and faster cpu, so games load faster. and now there are roumers about the 4th gen? let me guess: 5MP camera and some extra ram...
in 2009 apple whas braging with their new phone: look 3mp, video and copy paste... WOW. for this amount of money, i should have bought n97, satio, omnia HD, phones that have everything.
selling my iphone 3gs, i got enouph money to buy myself an used e71 (perfect condition) and a ps3. life is so much better now...
