I tried to eat one of these once thinking it would taste like an apple. It hurt coming out the other end later
Recently purchased the iPHONE 3Gs - the device is fantastic except something that am still search for! Flash player which is very important for me and Bluetooth as a second needed option! The current B/T support headset only! Cydia (3rd P.applications provider) did a superb job with many iPhone applications but i still search for both above - any help i do appreciate - Cheers
Sorry All the "iphone lovers" and "iphone haters" if you have iphone or want it, then good go and buy one and if you hate the iphone just dont buy it. Nobody is paying people to buy the phone, they earned the money and have the right to spend it as they feel. And those who do not want the iphone, nobody has kidnapped your family and for ransom told you to buy an iphone. So please all of you STOP YOUR WHINING
John Love, 13 Nov 2009Itís unfortunate that Apple Haters are using GSM to promote their inexplicable hatred for the ... moreI see people comparing the HD2 to the iphone 3gs. They are two different phones and used in two different ways. The iphone is an entertainment phone period (social networking, games, ect.). The HD2 is a business phone first, with some social networking and entertainment. HTC is adding more entertainment feature's to there phone lines now. Two phones targeted for two different people. HTC has always been a business phone company, that's why they still make Windows mobile phones, and always will. WM7 will be alot better OS (better touch screen). I wouldn't be at all surprised to see alot of Windows 7 features in it.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2009Would you mind pointing out where the N97 is on this list of compatible phone models? Compa... moreI agree n97 is not on the list.I got the skype download over my wi fi from a link on google some guy gave saying it was for the n82 but he said see if it works for the n97. Thing is if you download something thats incompatible with the phone at least with nokia, it will say not compatible with phone do you wish to continue.I never got that message.Like i said earlier that girl at my workplace was able to call me,i answered she could hear me but i couldnt hear her cause no mic on ipod touch.Sent each other short message via skype.
I'm an iphone user. Today, I went to the Verizon store to check out the droid. And here's my impression:
It feels solid in your hand. The keyboard slides out smoothly. Although I've seen and used better keys. I can actual type faster on my iphone's virtual keyboard.
Touch sensitivity is really good. It's responsive, although the iphone still has the better touchscreen. There's somehow a degree of fluidity and smoothness that the iphone has, that other touchscreen phones just can't seem to match. Although I must say that the droid is not that bad at all, and I would say that if you haven't used an iphone, the droid would do just fine.
I played around with its screens and apps. It's as quick as the iphone in opening apps. The screen transitions are smooth as well. But loading of pics took a little while. With the iphone, it's instant.
I'm a facebook addict, so its facebook app was the first one I tried out. For those who haven't used the iphone, I think you'd find its facebook app alright. But for an iphone user like me, it was frustrating and does not come close to the way the iphone's facebook app works.
I wanted to play around with it more, but I didn't want to hog the device for there were others who were waiting for me.
My conclusion. It is definitely not an iphone killer, but it is a fine touchscreen phone. It's screen resolution is very nice and actually better than the iphone. But it's ui is still behind the iphone's. As impressive the droid may be, it's not worth for me to switch from an iphone. But for those who never used the iphone and don't want At&t, the droid is definitely the best choice.

The truth about the so much denied and c... moreItís unfortunate that Apple Haters are using GSM to promote their inexplicable hatred for the iPhone. There is definitely a conspiracy and itís big. Basically itís the same people doing all the negative posts thatís why they are posting as Anonymous.
The hate for the iPhone has become ridiculous; every new smartphone is compared against it. Something that unwittingly makes it the de facto smartphone gold standard. Though such comparisons are usually negative they create a situation where the iPhone continues to receive unbelievable air time which does nothing but entrench it as the phone to beat, regardless of its flaws. In other words iPhone haters have a better chance of reducing the popularity of the phone by actually not mentioning it at all. So many phones have come and gone, some simply disappear from our minds and we couldnít give a Ö.. But two years after the release of the iPhone which basically hasnít changed the excitement is still there. The browser wars of the 90s which exposed Microsoft for the monopoly that it is did nothing to stop Internet Explorer from eclipsing Netscape as the preferred browser. Within a few years Netscapes market share fell from 75% to zero as IEs share grew.
Ironically the ďJesus PhoneĒ like Jesus is persecuted by the prophets of doom (iPhone Haters). LOL! Now thatís funny!!!!! LOL! :-]
If you want to understand why the iPhone is hated so much follow this link (http://roughlydrafted.com/RD/RDM.Tech.Q2.07/34C8BD5D-E210-4A62-BE6F-FD21E046A397.html) and and see why the conspiracy theory is really not that far fetched. There are people who are being paid to bash the iPhone in forums like this, the whole scam is a joke and itís not even funny. Because the obsession with hating the iPhone doesnít make sense.
What makes me laugh is that whereas the reviews of other phones are filled with people who have used the phone, here you get people who admit that there have never used the iPhone saying its crap. People crash the iPhone as if there were being forced to buy it. What the hell does Apples sales or whether people are being fired have anything to do with reviewing this phone. To the people doing the hating there is so much more to life than this pointless bashing of the iPhone, if you think the Touch Pro 2/Ominia/BB Storm is better then good for you, if someone else wants to worship the iPhone and it makes them sleep at night then good for them. Why is it that the person who says, ĎI love HTC and I have never used any other brand, is not labeled an HTC fanboy? Show the same love for the iPhone and you get labeled a fanboy. So wait a minute HTC fanboys are okay and Apple fanboys are not. Read the reviews of any phone and youíll see that each has its own fanboys.
In the final analysis we are all Apple fanboys!!! LOL!
So get over it and get a life.
P.S. Donít forget to spread the love. : ->

The truth about the so much denied and c... moreSo you think 15,600 - 14,000 = 14,000, mate maybe you should go back to primary school simple arithmetic is obviously not one of your strong points, the figures referred to January, notice the "full time equivalent" part that indicates holiday positions relating to December.
Apple is opening a lot more stores, such as the one that opened in Paris last week, it attracted a line of thousands.
They will be employing more staff in all their new stores.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Here or down the page sheep, wherever you want it!
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 as the user "P%nm" always advertises are nothing but advertisement themselves.
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 fireing tens of thousands of people every year!
This is the information apple 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?
Actually microsoft owns about 150 millions of stock they bought off apple just after they helped them not to go broke back in '96-'97.
Knowing how low the stock value of a barely floating company probably those 150 million have now turned to billions.
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 and a fair share of it.
So the better apple is doing, the better microsoft is doing.

Oh wait, your the kid claiming to work in a gsm store! You saw a pic of n96 and thaught it was touch! LMFAO!!!
As on any decent statistcs site you'll find iphone is nothing on the phone market!
You can link the same fake cultofmac.com income article from all the sites that copied it. It means nothing!

A spec sheet full of features that are too hard or too annoying to use does not make a phone "better".
Hence the iPhone came along and shook the whole smartphone market up in just a couple of years, Apple give people what they want, their number one priority has always been the user experience unlike others who just cram in as many features as they can without caring that devices become almost impossible to use and require a real effort to understand.

Microsoft didn't have much choice at the time as some of their executives were looking at facing criminal charges over stealing Quicktime code from Apple, the DOJ was taking a very close look at Microsoft's anticompetitive activities.
Steve Jobs got CEO of the decade from fortune 500 magazine because of the way he turned Apple around and has changed the mobile phone, music, movie and computer industries.
Even now with 7 Microsoft is still copying Apple, 7 now has a taskbar which is very similar to the OSX Dock.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970That list is so silly, and it's not even from a tech site or anything, but rather a blog from an iphone hater, lol.
The iphone truly is the best. The signs are all over the place. Everyone is mimicking the iphone from its design to its icons to its apps store to its music player to its ui to its os to its web browser. A big sign is also its sales. So yes, all the signs are saying that the iphone is the best.
You think that the iphone has less because you do not have one. The iphone does more things than most, if not all, smartphones out there.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2009What photoshop? from adobe? Adobe the comany that makes flash? FLASH iPhone can't handle???
... moreAdobe app on the iphone is very useful. You wouldn't know that because you do not have the iphone. So I don't even know why you're whining about it. And again, the iphone's screen resolution is just fine.
Quit twisting stories. Apple let go of the people they hired for the holidays. It's common for any businessess to hire extra people for the holidays.
Again, quit twisting facts. Foxconn is a 3rd party vendor for the iphone. They assemble the iphone, but the iphone's parts are ot made by Foxconn themselves. Other phonemakers also outsource jobs, not just Apple.
Iphone 3gs sales went up because of new iphone users and those 2g and 3g users who qualified for an upgrade. Apple is not releasing fake numbers. You're crazy to think that way.
As for the articles, of course they will all say the same thing because that is the truth. You're a whack job.
What next? Are you going to say that every person that you see in public holding an iphone is paid by Apple to walk around holding the iphone? Lol.
