as someone that works in the mobile industry at a retail level and has been taking pre-orders all day. the phone is diaper trash. dont get me wrong, i love my old iBook G4 to pieces i prefer Apple over MS anyday. but alot of you are right, the good and the bad. the phone is pretty damn powerful, but they have really missed the ball with this one, the only exceptional thing about the 3GS is the price.
christ knows how im gonna get people to part with so much cash?
oh my god cant wait for this phone.
i gave my 3g to my friend because i was so over my iphone 3g and got me an n85 cant wait till my contract ends.
I have to add
You said EVERY KIND of applications are available for S60???
I need facebook app.
I have it on my iPhone and my friend has it on her Diamond (WinMo)
If you want BT file transfer and any other stuff you mentioned... you can do the same thing you did with your Symbian phone and then you'll feel the same PROFESSIONAL (the feeling of doing Development of a SW!!!!)
Jailbreak you iPhone... then it's done

iPhone is the best in all of them
I suggested to compare it side by side instead of laughing blindly
Hey open your eyes
You are saying that they are more of S60 Apps... who says??? which reference? The number of new iPhone applications being introduced everyday is a phenomenon.
App store is 1 year old only with 50,000 applications till now and the record of more than 1 billion downloads

But that doesn't mean that there aren't ANY apps availible. Basicly, Iphone is a noob phone for people who don't know how to search for apps on the net. Those people most likely don't know what multitasking is, because if they would know, they wouldn't get an Iphone!

Look at Omnia HD specs, and then come back!
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2009If you want real processing power, the an Omnia HD instead.nah man u r wrong when it comes to the processing power iphone 3GS is the best

The iphone has 50000 apps on the market already as there is just over 1000 for the N97!
Get your facts right and you wont look so stupid!
N97 434MHz ARM 11 CPU iPhone 3Gs 600MHz ARM 8 CPU
N97 no graphics processor iPhone 3Gs PowerVR MBX
N97 128MB RAM iPhone 3Gs 256MB RAM
N97 3.6MBps HSDPA iPhone 3Gs 7.2MBps HSDPA
The iPhone is one of the most powerful phones on the market and one of the most reliable phones. I feel for people who dont have the iPhone and never have who sit on here all day bitter a twisted wishing they could have/afford an iphone, slating the phone becuase they dont have one! Unlucky people Apple have once again produced the best phone on the market! The UK mobile awards 2009 last week, the iPhone won handset of the year as voted for by CUSTOMERS and DEALERS. Face facts the iphone is better than your phone!

Seriously, you must be joking. The App Store's existance has the complete opposite meaning.

"Must be joking the CPU and RAM is the same as the new Samsung i8910 OmniaHD. Which will be coming out roughly this month. Are they copying or what. The OmniaHD has been shouting its specs since beginning this year."
Yes, Apple is a copy-cat, but is that really some news? Have they ever created or done something innovative before? I mean, they also "copied" the touch-screen feature, accelerometer and everything else found in their phone. Oh right, besides the OS of course, but it sucks anyway... the lack of multi-tasking is a joke.
I wanted to get the new iphone as i do love the interface but i really expected them to sort out the basics this time which if you iPhone lovers just dropped your guard for one second you'd agree deep down that they have no excuse for these omissions such as:
NO FLASH (Not gonna bleet about the low megapixels as like some mentioned, no a ot of use if the ccd is the same size anyway!)
NO BLUETOOTH FILE TRANSFER
NO OLED SCREEN
These are all basic, not too much to ask for, features that have no genuine decent reason to not be on the phone.
My biggest gripe above all of these (maybe to some insignificant omissions but not to others) is the O2 sale price in the UK.
WHAT THE HELL!?
£300 plus a 24 month contract of £34.50 a month is bank breaking! And definitely not worth it over equivalents from the other manufacturers as you can save over £250 by getting the Omnia HD (ok before you say it, not as good a UI but close enough to justify keeping 250 big ones in your pocket!) which also has a higher spec in most respects.
I am disappointed as i wanted it but can't justify the excessive costs involved or the amateur functions being left out.
