The limitation is due to WinMo, 65k colour no more, my Sharp phone in 2002 had that many colours at the time it looked pretty good, now 65k colour looks washed out and dull, lifeless.
The iPhone screen since 2007 has had 16.7 million or 32bit colour.
Oliver Queen, 13 Sep 2009Great! Oh so you're comparing that old junk with the iPhone!!
Adious!!!!!!!!!!!!It is where the iPhone had it's roots, way before Palm and WinMo were even thought of.
Bringing up Palm and WinMo as having touchscreens before Apple = you fail.

I had high hopes for the 3GS, but it's spreading all over the net and everywhere else.. Windows wasn't competing with iPhone is 2007 and early 2008..
But look at things now.. A powerful boost from microsoft that should bury Aple soon, i mean even the new Microdoft Zune HD is running windows.. So imagine the tweakings you can do!!!..
Late this year, you'll see how sorry you'll be!!...
I tried to talk sense here, and some listened some didn't.. Well i did my best.. See ya All!!

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2009I thought Opera Mobile 9 only let's you open 3 tabs.There is a registry patch that alows opera to open more tabs, and takes more ram which on the touch HD is more than enough!!
Can you atleast patch anything in the iPhone??. instead of installing an app to do the task??

- I have Safari in my HD, phone and i used the one in iPhone, the iPhone was faster, but then i compared to my HD's Opera, i told you Opera is faster and open alot of tabs and go through them more smoothly! I also open lots of apps in the background and they're all working perfectly, no lag at all!!
- WinMo may not look as pretty as the iPhones interface but you can make it as pretty. Just search youtube "Windows Mobile interface".
- You don't need for an official update, all you need is 12kb patch to fix an issue!!
- the windows, interface can be used more easily than the iPhone if you want it to.
I can get you more proof. But you guys can't!! I'm still waiting PROOF! I will buy the iPhone when i get more proof!.. And i promise i will help you all in this Forum!!..
But i need to know why this phone is over rated?????

All the capabilities in the iPhone can be found in a normal phone, but the GUI is making it better!!.. Just take away the GUI for a second there.. ;)
That's why i keep saying the has the best GUI now, just needs more features!!

If you get the time to read my previous posts carefully without just ignoring the facts, you'll know that i actually own a $700 hTC phone witch performs as much as double or triple that price..
So its obviously your first touchscreen phone..
You're calling me a brat, Who's the brat now? You might me a 25 year old guy or girl but you just talk like a kid about a toy..

1-No Flash support in the web browser
2-Still no file manager (or any other way to see all your files in one place)
3-Still no vibration feedback when touching the screen
4-No Bluetooth file transfers between mobile devices (you cannot send a photo to another phone or even iPhone and you can't receive one as well)
5-Contacts lack a swipe-to-delete or mass delete feature (but you can swipe-to-delete individual phone numbers)
6-Lacking SMS/MMS features: No msg character counting, no delivery notifications
7-Lacking email features: no bulk "mark as read", no ZIP or RAR support in mail, mail search doesn't search in email body
8-No smart dialing (but Spotlight is a good substitute)
9-No TO-DO app (but can be installed additionally)
10-No turn-to-mute feature (though that's more of a gimmick)
11-The Lock screen could have accommodate some info plug-ins such as upcoming appointments and events, weather, stocks, news, RSS feeds, etc.
12-A Wireless manager would have made turning on/off 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi, Airplane mode, and Bluetooth much more user-friendly
13-Still no true multitasking support (but perhaps for the better, having in mind the already poor battery life)
14-The system-wide search Spotlight is often too slow to launch iPod tracks
15-You can't use the iPhone massive storage as a removable USB drive under Windows
16-The whole iPhone is too dependent on iTunes - you cannot upload one type of content (video, photos, apps) from two computers, iTunes behaves fairly poorly under Windows, a regular file management interface would have been much better
17-Still no DivX or XviD video support and no official third-party application to play that.
this is real truth about iphone ,,,,,ENJOY...the TRUTH
Hello Mr.Nick where ARE you....???????????????
Hey quiet a kick-ass phone but one problem.......ITS A DAMN IPHONE
iphone 3Gs yes, if you bought its locked, then it's locked if you upgrade it to 3.1..
so far no jailbreak for iphone 3Gs.so sad huh?
but as what i suggest you guys to do, before upgrade the software to 3.1 just google first.
no yellow snow, no red snow or other jailbreak software available yet( for this mean time) for this version. genius, please come out with the jailbreak for the 3.1 soon!!
we are all waiting..
Hey Dexter/Captain Falcon... Wat you doing in iphone forum ?? Are you tired of your htc hd?? I thought you guys are cooking ROM in the kitchen lol. Iphone users do not need to cook food. Food is served right on the table. All we need to do is just sit & eat. Ok you winmob users, just be honest and answer my following simple questions.
1) Is your winmob is as fast as iphone??
2) Is your winmob's resistive screen as sensitive as iphone's capacitive screen?
3) Is your opera, skyfire watever browser as fast as iphone's safari? I know opera is default browser in htc device instead of IE. Lol
4) Does your 65k color allow you to read in broad day light?
5) Does your htc/microsoft give you FREE updates like apple does? They come out with new device every month with few changes here & there and force ppl to buy new device to get new features. Thanks to xda developer, you can get some of new features from them using their cooked rom.
6) Do winmob have app store like apple where you can get thousands of apps as per your need? Lots of free as well.
7) Can you use your winmob without third party rom/skin ….like touchflo, touchwiz etc? You guys pretty know the real face of winmob without its mask.lol
7) Is your winmob as simple as iphone in terms of UI? Even 5 yrs old kid or 80yrs grandma enjoy using it. Coz simplicity is the beauty of iphone. Everybody can use it out of box without any complication. Winmob forget it!……they are still living in the cave. Winmob users love to wipe azz with bare hand instead of using toilet paper. They love to walk all the way up to 10th floor instead of taking elevator. Coz they do not know or believe that there's a simple way to do things.
8)Does your winmob support new technology/processor like tegra, snapdragon etc?
9) Can you play graphic intensive game in your winmob?
Talk sense to me. Don't come up with stupid features like editing in excel or mms features. Be practical! Only stupid ppl work in MS word/excel on their tiny mobile screen. I'm heavy user of MS office. But I do my work on my computer. By the way, you need to buy apps to work/edit on MS office and in the end of this month you can send/receive mms accd to at&t. I'm not fan of mms and if I need to send pic, I will attach in email and send.
There's only ONE THING iphone can not do…..thats video call. Other than that it does better than any other mobile platform. Again I'm not fan of video call. Last but not the least, 70% of winmob users do not about xda developer….even they know, they are not interested in spending hours of valuable time in their parent's basement flashing their roms.lol ... winmob Is already DEAD!
