Seeing as the iPhone IS an iPod you don't really need to given all the things you can get that dock with it.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2009A guy i know and his name is guy uses the iphone3g and he fm transmits his music all the time ... moreWell you know what sir? We are all not like your guy friend who drives a tow truck and listens to fm. My BMW has HD radio, plus iphone hookup, plus usb port, plus cd player, plus a built in hard drive for ripping music. And oh, it also has fm radio :). As you can see. We all have different lives and financial status. The iphone may be the best for me, but may not be suited for you. So take your issues somewhere else, ok.
Dave - FL, 02 Oct 2009Yeah, supply and demand is the WHOLE cell industry, since each instruments costs only $25 - $5... moreOK, make me an iPhone and I'll give you $75, that way you'll make a profit.
It better work properly too, or I'll sue you, and it better not infringe any copyrights or the IP owners will sue you.
I hope you got good lawyers.

Hmmm, gives me the impression that you work in a very unprofessional environment. You're truly one of a kind.
And why are you asking us to zoom photos taken from our iphone? Is that like a requirement for you? The iphone has a 3.5 display, not 2.5. Also, most of the pictures that we load on our iphones are taken from our digital cameras. When you zoom a photo in the iphone taken from a 12 megapixel camera, it does not pixelate, and is crisp and clear. And guess what, since those pictures were taken from a 12 megapixel canon camera, it would look much better than the ones taken by your n97 :)

Also, it's unethical anyway to not set your phone on silence when you'rr at work. But then again, I work in an office, not in a public market :)

Anonymous, 01 Oct 2009i disagree that the iphone has the best music player with a mono speaker and no fm transmitter... moreWhen he said that the iphone has the best music player, he was referring to music processing and reproduction, not its speakers. FM has nothing to do with it. You can say that the iphone may not have the best battery life or the best camera or the best display resolution. But to say that it seriously failed in those areas is but a hateful remark.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I also move around at work so my music goes with me. Hey trying zooming a pic on your iphone3gs and see how blurry it gets! Only crystal clear pics on the n97 even when zooming.It puts your little pathetic viewing experience on your iphone3gs to shame.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2009i disagree that the iphone has the best music player with a mono speaker and no fm transmitter... moreFM transmitters are a waste of time, on my drive to work I go past around six communty radio stations, it's impossible to get a clear channel all the way, hardwired sound quality is so much better and is readily available for iPhone's, most new cars have iPod docking as standard or an optional extra.
So why would you want to fiddle with changing stations all the time?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I work in a noisy enviroment numnuts where i have to hear if I'm being paged and at least my n97 is loud enough on its own for music unlike the iphone with its low volume.Headphones and docking doesnt work all the time stupid.

HD on a phone? Come on. Like I'm really going to dump my LED HDTV at home for the omnia. Be realistic. All they're doing is throwing in seemingly impressive features that produces mediocre results compared to the real thing. Be realistic. Do you think a videophile like me would enjoy watching or taking videos using your omnia. Geez louisse. I refuse to watch or take videos from any phone unless it's merely for trivial purposes, and I do not need hd technology for that. Rather use hardware space for something else.

Nokia phone's are bland and old fashioned, the N900 has a lot of things missing lot's of things are half finished and it doesn't have the polish of the iPhone.
You should tell the sheep who spent $700 on N97's about the N900 so they can feel happy about Nokia releasing such a wonderful phone a few months after the N97.

600MHz ARM 8, 256MB RAM, PowerVR, 7.2 HSDPA these ARE the latest"high tech" features.
You are just a biased hater.
As far as "best" phone there is no such thing, different people have different needs.
Best music player, best web browser (NO ADOBE) best applications, etc, etc all belong to the iPhone.

Sorry it's got no document editing.
Can't send MMS.
Most things are stuck in landscape mode.
Here's something about the browser:-
"The browser boasts built-in support for Flash 9.4 as well as AJAX. It would seem not much has changed compared to the previous version, but in terms of philosophy Nokia have tried to deliver browsing experience as close to Apple's Safari as possible, since it's the effective benchmark on the market, that is still unreachable for many other phone makers. And Nokia with their Maemo Browser are not an exception.
But the first thing we need to find out about this browser is how quickly it renders pages. For reference, The Nokia N810, compared to any iPhone, ends up hopelessly behind Apple's smartphone. Being an owner of both devices, however, I must say that my bedside table has been occupied by the iPhone for quite a while now - the simple fact is that it is speedier and doesn't have as many flaws (it does crash occasionally, but in return its page rendering speed is phenomenal). That's why I had been really looking forward to the new N900 and its revamped browser, however after a month of quality time with it I reached an unfavorable conclusion - even though Maemo Browser is developing at a rapid pace, it hasn't caught up with the rest of the pack yet, as it still can't stand comparison to the browser application found in Android-based phones or Apple's iPhone (Safari WebKit). Why so? Perhaps there is not a whole lot of resources allocated to this department, although Maemo Browser still beats the application available in S60 devices."

Here's some more of the "buzz" I've heard about the unwanted N900:-
"It makes very little sense to review this side of Maemo5 in isolation from the hardware department, so we'll try to focus on all aspects right here. The platform employed by the N900 (and Nokia aren't planning to ditch it any time soon) sports DAC33 audio chipset, identical to the one found in the Nokia N97, meaning that all phones running on this platform will have fairly good audio quality. But unfortunately music-related software has never been the top priority for Maemo, so what we can see in the N900 are merely first steps in the right direction, as its player doesn't even feature any equalizers yet. Another drawback we can't overlook are the on-screen volume controls that are way too small and fiddly to use - in most cases you'll be better off punching the volume rocker mounted on the casing. For some bizarre reason the handset doesn't have FM-radio, even though it does offer an FM-transmitter (that allows you to pick a frequency and broadcast some nonsense) whose quality is on par with other transmitters found in mobile devices - in other words, it leaves much to be desired."
I think you should go tell the Nokia sheep who wasted $700 buying N97's about this phone, I'm sure they will appreciate having to shell out for a new phone after a couple of months.
