People their are over 100 million smart phones in the US
Around 10 million iphones...
Last year more money was made from iphone app sales than was made from smartphone app sales.
The app store is far more accesible to users than any other online store. Nokia tried with the re-launch of Ngage and looked to be failing. So they are now tring agaion with the OVI store - which to be honest looks to be a joke.
The biggest change which no-one has spoken about is the Open GLES 2.0 added to the iphone 3gs.
The 3GS is now graphically more powerfull the the Sony PSP.
Both these reasons are why independant developers would now rather develop for just 1 platform (iphone).
Plus they dont have to deal with any porting issues... If it works on the iphone, it will work on the 3G and 3GS.
Games like this are now going to start becoming more common on iphone:
All the other manufacturers know this and are trying to make their own iphone 'killers'.
They really do need to catch up - Apple have it bang on...
I hate saying this as I'm not really a fan of the iphone...

what is a MUST for you shouldn't make you jump in this forum typing meaningless opinions
what other things do you know? let all the people here know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
for me, iPhone is a good phone, regarding those of Apple fanbois who said that anti-iPhone crowds cant afford an iPhone, haha, screw you, hell, i can afford 100 units of iPhone now if i want to, for me, iPhone has been always behind with the rest of the world, note that Nokia, SE, Samsung, HTC, already included video capture in their phone ages ago, where iPhone just includes it on 3GS, well i cant blame Apple too, as they are a new breakthrough in Phone World, but yeah, they should have done better knowing how the other competitors have produced, well for me
iPhone 3GS is still in line with X1, Palm Pre, Omnia and N97
however, SE is gonna kill 3GS with their supposedly new Xperia X2
the iphone is fine the way it is,i dont know why they had to come up with the 3GS story though theres no difference.whats the S for?is it for 32gig or what?im just lost iphone...my advise to those with the iphone 3g stick to it,dnt get excited with S story.
therock, 16 Jun 2009one more thing i will be surprise if the new iphone does well in europe and asia because of no... more...and I'm sure you'll get'em all, right? Get some right info, then get a grip. No perfect interface will ever hit the market, features will always come at once, that's the game. Meanwhile, who else gives the chance to develop apps for Medicine, BI, or Fun? BTW, don't you LoL whith all the follows with that soapy shape? Neither do I.
nokia n97: doesnt matter if they make it til n9999, you still be getting only limited applications. Plus you have to be a technician to make these apps work properly, take only ngage. Iphone says we are not cehap like nokia, you van have it, this is consumer friendly, nokia is marketingdocus. I know because I owe n95 8gb, its ok, but iphone is stunning!
Iphone: over 15000 applications, super ui, super internet, super youtube, live stocks live weather, gps etc etc etc, more and more, nokia fans go play with your camera and make some pictures of birds you geeks hahahaha.
Simmilar phone like the last,there are some inovations but still without flash,fancy phone but MOKIA n97 is much better....
iphonestupid, 17 Jun 2009The worst thing for the iPhone is that they never put secondary camera for video call!!!Why??This is business, how can they release everything in on set... wait for next release u will get video call as well...
They doit step by step just for their sale.
what a waste of money to buy dis kind of jerk..
its not can't afford to buy dis things..but be a smart buyer..
lack of function but crazy price..

no wat you want in a phone and then buy it. dont put other phones down just cause they dont meet your requirements. every one has there own needs in a phone which means we get to choose wat we want. if you dont like it dont buy it pretty simple really. you could also try getting a life instead of spending your time writting negatives comments.
mm....about Iphone...just want to say no point!!!!the 1st ipod then come the iphone 8gb and 16 gb then iphone 3g 8 or 16gb but now is iphone s32gb!!just want say....all same!!no point!!!
scotty your words ring true in my book. i would swim in a pool of iphones if they just had better features, but for now ill only swim in a pool of nokias! the new features existed on phones like 5 years ago yet apple loyals are suggesting its the greatest improvement known to man! nokia 1208 is still better than iphone! now its time to go and swim in my pool of N97s, while i put my two iphones in the toaster and slap a bit of cheese in between and make an iphone-cheese sandwich! cause thats all its good for is eating sambos!
I have had both the 2g and 3g iphone which was no difference b/w the two. Apple have ruined their reputation as a manufacturer who can produce an all-in-one mobile device. Obviously they have not done a good job observing current mobiles in the market that have bluetooth, flash viewing, mms and a decent video camera as a norm in their range of mobile phones. This just makes them seem as money grubbing company that contuinue to provide a lower than par products to their loyal customers. Shame on you Apple.
wow.. in a week.. iphone 3gs shot up to the top 3 most popular phone.... well done peeps !
I own an iPhone 3G, and I HATE IT! The iPhone is garbage. You can't do shit without apps, and since when did reviews include apps? Also the web browser crashes and freezes like crazy. Do not buy any version of the iPhone, get an N97 or omnia HD, trust me.
