All Apple got now is an easy to use phone for most teenages or non business people who is afraid to hack and tweak their phones to max potential, unlike windows mobile users who are very good programmers that can turn ANY winmo phones into either android or a little PC that can do multi tasking.
Ask ANY iphone users (I personally know some) if they can run youtube (again not a full desktop like version like us in winmo OS) AND navigating with turn by turn GPS AND talking on the phone AND...the limits are endless with faster and more powerful CPU and RAM.
the 3gs is for people who DONT know jack about IT.apple makes it easier for incompetent people to use it.just like their computers.
M@hathir, 26 Jul 2009The 2.0 software is still buggy and unstable (presumably fixed with the latest 2.01 firmware) ... moreThis phone was released with the version 3.0 software, obviously you aren't the sharpest tool in the shed.

this is what u called 10 years ahead of other phone..??hahahahaha...u must be joking right?
Yup iphone is the best..UI wise , responsiveness of the touchscreen.... browser and apps... apple is the best OS so far .. i love the maps it a very good locator , showtimes apps movies in your theater with showtimes in one touch!! and much more
Omnia HD also has capacitive touch screen but the OS limits it potential and doesnt even have the best of apps.... like? windows screen doesnt support more than 65,ooo colors and games arent as good
i got both but apple OS service on itunes and apples store are really cool... specially if you got jailbreak then everything goes free....
the only downside i see for me is theres no memory slot and video call anyway who does in america.. and also its not plug and play!!

M@hathir, 25 Jul 2009every phone has its own speaciality but dun juz say iphone is the best as u know even omnia th... moreAnd let me add another thought. Nokia, LG, Samsung, HTC, SE, etc, never cared to protect developers and didn't care whether developers get compensated for their work or not. they never cared if you download pirated music, videos and apps. they never cared if their customers lose their warranty by letting their customers tamper with their phones. they never bothered to consider older models to take advantage of newer OS updates like the iphone does with all of its iphone lineups. Call apple control freaks, but hey, i can assure you that if something goes bad with my iphone, i am UNDER WARRANTY because i never tampered with my iphone because apple tries really hard to make the iphone tamper proof TO PROTECT ME AND MY IPHONE. no wonder apple has the best technical support. it's easier to fix a tamper free phone from a phone that's been tampered with. hey, if you think you're tech savvy, don't tamper with your phones and lose warranty. buy your own hardware parts and assemble your own phone =)
M@hathir, 25 Jul 2009every phone has its own speaciality but dun juz say iphone is the best as u know even omnia th... morethe iphone's OS is 10 years ahead from its competitors. and that is true. as you can see, after the iphone has been released 3 years ago, other phone makers are trying so hard to close in to the iphone's technology and OS. trying so hard to even imitate what the iphone and services are offering. but they will have a hard time because the integration of services for the iphone is way ahead of the competition. they will have a hard time to get to where itunes and the apple app store is at right now, unless apple sleeps. but apple is far from resting on its laurels, and is aggressively moving forward as well, and that is why other phone makers will have a really hard time catching up to where the iphone's at unless a major conspiracy takes place to topple apple, which is unlikely to happen, because even samsung and lg enjoys the revenue that they are getting from apple. remember, apple gets some of their hardware parts from samsung and lg. and I don't think samsung and lg would want to lose apple and the millions they're getting from apple. be thankful that apple is still being conservative specs-wise. everyone knows that the iphone is capable of more features and specs. if the iphone goes all out now, what would happen to Samsung, LG, Nokia, SE, HTC, etc.? they will no longer be producing smartphones. only low end phones, or 2nd rate smartphones. apple is not selfish as many think them to be. just the fact that they are making sure developers get paid for their efforts, and how they discourage piracy, just shows that they don't only care about their interests, but looks out on other people interests as well. think.
I wanna buy the IPhone, any idea as to the cost in USD for IPhone 3GS 16GB and 32GB...
Hows the ui and what about SMS getting converted to MMS?
I wana ask, can the new iphoneS play games on fb ? such as restaurant city,barn buddy & etc?
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2009you're not completely happy with your omnia. i can tell because you're here in the iphone's c... moreoh..because my brother has iphone and he's too damn happy with it so I got curious (he's 14 years old). and who plays god here to restrict me from reading? I have posted in SE k700i and SE K850i too because I have them.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 19701 no it doesn't have proprietry Adobe Flash support, Apple uses open standards not closed one's.
2 yes you can cut and paste with the iPhone you can also install QuickOffice and create and edit Word and Excel files.
All I can say buy it try it then you'll know. Not all people have the same taste, but as for me I'm too damm satisfied. All my personal datas are kept in secrecy away from unwanted people and very very easy to work around.
But Mr.Mahathir although all the phone in market Rocks but Nokia still owning. Yeah
hani, 25 Jul 2009symbian os market share 2008 q4 47% RIM BlackBerry 19.5% windows mobile 12.4% iphone os 11% .... moreThink about how many phones run each of those OS's you just mentioned. Symbian has more phones than anyone can count. Blackberry has more than a handful as well. Windows Mobile is the same boat. Apple has 3. That is a no-brainer as to why the results look the way they do.
