Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Would you mind pointing out the part where the OCR on the N97 does anything more than very basic OCR for simple business cards?
That example I posted was a lot more complex and was done on the handset without importing a photo into software on a PC.

Hey N-sheep, look at that OCR on the iPhone, a p... moreHey sheep, this is me scared:
The truth about the so much denied and contradictory financial results of apple:
"Apple dubbed the laid off salespeople "full-time equivalents," reporting a headcount of 14,000 Apple store employees. That's slashed from the 15,600 number listed in its 10-K filing just last January."
The ever increasing profits of apple are nothing but advertisements, since no correlation can be made between the sum reported by Apple to the givernment and the one reported to the press.
Just google "statistics/world/manufacturer/apple" with quotes and see what a small drop iPhone is in the ocean.
Apple, as well as they might try to hide it, has very small anual profit rates forcing them to fire more than 10.000 employees every year!
This is also the reason why iPhone isn't actually made by apple but by FOXCONN: http://www.betanews.com/article/Dying-for-an-iPhone-Questions-raised-by-the-Foxconn-suicide/1248371905 this explains the reason why the iphone that costs ~150$ to manufacture costs as much as 1200$ if you're to "get it free" on contract and also why apple is the only company that allows paid thethering from AT&T on their device!
"Skating on stellar increases in iPhone sales, Apple turned in its "best non-holiday quarter" in history from January through March. Now, an examination of Apple's 10-Q filing by Betanews reveals that overall sales for Apple stores shot up, too -- albeit only to the tune of 2 percent, or $58 million -- between the first six months in Apple's respective 2008 and 2009 fiscal years."
"Apple would "incur substantial costs if it were to close multiple retail stores and such costs could adversely affect the Company's financial condition and operating results," company officials conjectured."
So how come the sales of 3GS suddenly rocketed, while most users don't find the differences between 3G and 3GS as justifying the price? EASY! apple advertises fake income numbers so that naive users that buy fancy for popularity actually believe apple is a success... whereas the truth is the company barely keeps afloat firing tens of thousands of people every year!
Things are only getting worse for apple in Q3 2009, as Apple has it's device replacement program, it seems the only users interested in the 3GS were the ones already owning a 3G. Although many sites report the replaced devices as new sales, Gartner has placed Apple in the "OTHERS" category, since it was not able to keep up with top companies like Nokia, Samsung, Motorola or Sony Ericsson. Unfortunately compared to the boom registered by the iPhone back in 2007, it's market share has only been able to rise by 5% compared to Q3 2008. We would have expected a little more since 3GS is clearly superior to it's predecessors but the truth is the competition has been it this game for a while longer and Apple still has a little catching up to do, to create a full featured smartphone.
This is also in concordance with the low interest on GSMArena, where iPhone does not manage to score in the top 15 models or Apple in the top 7 brands; as interest, the iPhone bareley reaches above Sony W960 gaining a modest 11th position.

To stay in business Apple simply wiped out the Research&Development department back in the 90's (wich partly explains why it's devices are built by Chinese contractors) and gave out to Microsoft about 150 millions worth of stock, for helping them not to go broke back in '96-'97 - the actual value of Apple's stock was 20 to 25 US dollars.
Knowing how low the stock value of a barely floating company, probably those 150 million have now turned to billions as the stock value in 2009 was 230 to 250 US dollars.
Main thing why Microsoft doesn't pull the plug (because let's be honest when a company fires thousands they're far from doing as well as apple claims) is because Microsoft has their own software selling on Apple/MAC and a fair share of it. So the better apple is doing, the better Microsoft is doing.
Because of the bleak financial situation, Apple can't afford to depent on neither Intel nor AMD anymore and decided to invest the profit made with iPhone into chip manufacturing once again, a mistake that has cost them dearly before.
This is the information Apple desperately tries to hide from us all and it's a thing quite hard to find on the internet these days, as is real feedback over their products.
Steve Jobs, the CEO and main animator of apple has been operated on a few months ago for alcoholic cyrosis! I am glad he is better and he has to be since he's the only thing that stands between apple and doom.
But really, is that the attitude of the CEO of a winning company? Alcoholism? Firing almost 30.000 employees in less than a year?
Quo vadis Apple? Will Microsoft save you again this time?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970What's the matter N-sheep, Nokia is going down i.e. from 60% before the iPhone to 35% smartphone market share leading to their first Quarterly loss in 10 years, so you desperately cling to a useless list of half truths, lies and features that no-one cares about.
What's the matter, are you n-sheep scared that too many are leaving the flock?
Nokia bringing time wasting n-sheep together.

You have absolutely no idea of ... more49. iDon't have full day coverage with one charge.
50. iDon't have any OS power optimization.
51. iDon't have USB charging without an adapter.
52. iDon't have any safety garment for the battery (swelling and cracking the screen from the inside reported).
So when is iPhone returining to the factory?
At least nokia claimed them back befoere anyone actually complained while iPhone is about to get banned from UE :D

Hey N-sheep, look at that OCR on the iPhone, a photo converted to text.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2009LoL, iPhone hasn't managed to get push working! it's a lame OTA sync
And even if it would, ... morePush works fine, once again you are showing your ignorance.
You have absolutely no idea of the importance of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and why ALL smartphone manufacturers including Nokia have licensed it and use it for "push" email, contacts and calendar.
Watch out for your cheap, Chinese charger:-
Nokia shocking people together.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970On the phone?
Maybe you need an iPhone as it doesn't need a PC to do OCR.
The N97 just failed on your list of bulls$&t "No OCR".
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2009Why would you need the charger, the iPhone charges from a USB port, it doesn't take five hours... moreDoesn't charge fully either needs it's own 20-pin cable and doesnt last half as much as N97 either nor even on socket.

So how does the push email work on it?
Seeing as Nokia's use EXACTLY the same system as iPhone's, WinMo phone's and Android phone's?
I thought you'd have a Blackberry with BIS for push email?
One thing on that list.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2009Ha, what a joke.That video showed a pic being taken about 2inches above the writing on the pap... moreIt's obvious from your reply that you don't even know what OCR is.
In the video did you see that block of text he took a photo of?
The software on the iPhone processed a jpg photo into a text format that could be edited.
N-sheep are unbelievably thick, as thick as an N97.
Apple iPhones are all manufactured from other innovative companies such as 45% for Nokia(GSM, UMTS, WLAN), 35% for Samsung (CPU and Memory storage), 5% for Tawain company(multitouch input and zooming), 5% for Google(map) and 10% for Apple(OS and brand name). Apple should sell their iphones unlocked without using service providers and see the outcome.

But let's not forget the basic USB stick :))))
Zero, 15 Nov 2009I will use a camera instead of the n95 which is only 5mp anyway.And don't forget to bring the iPhone charger the usb cable and your laptop in a nice bagpack.
I'll just pick a smartphone;)

Iphone users have to stop defending their camera when it clearly isnt good up against nokia.
Iphone users you cant say your iphone camera is better then nokia or even as good.
Cause it isnt.
