The phone without compasses on board, will get a bit crazy if you are stuck in a jam and will not know which direction the car is facing in real life.

If you don't want to use those features, then you don't have to, but you know you always have the choise, since they're there...
This phone is an official flop, because it's more expensive than a N97 32GB and a Ipod Touch combined!!!
But I actually think Apple wanted to "test" the market. I even this crap will sell, then there won't be any point of upgrading it further later. However, hopefully it will fail, and Apple will have to do a new remake, and quick as well. Of course Apple will do so, because there are currently a lot of unsure people that was put off by this announcment, even if they'd lose some sales or fans for "admitting their fault".
Don't buy this yet, wait IF it'll flop! If yes, then a new and BETTER version will be guaranteed!

Trust me ALL camera phones are pretty ordinard (no optical zoom, very slow, lens distortion, noise, poor flash (even xenon) etc)
DONT WORRY TO MUCH ABOUT THE CAMERA!!! The screen, OS, apps, gps, call quality, stability etc are the most important thing.

Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009What's the idea of calling a phone "3G", and not having a video call option???this is the dummest question ever. Pls use google and search what 3g is and u'll see that 3g does not mean video call

People I Got One Word.....ANDROID. Apple just want to collect more of your money by fooling that they got the best phone. bet you next year they will release a 5 mega pixel and the same old same old apps lolllolol
I hate to tell you this !!, but the Battery meter on the Apple iPhone Sucks!!! The Battery Drains so quickly every time you use the phone or whatever you do on the iPhone itself! Geessshhhhh!, I wish they came up with some POWERFUL standby battery life etc??
All these new features wouldn't matter if the battery is still crap.
There are a lot of ignorant people around, the iPhone does multitask with native applications and always has.
A digital compass let's GPS software know which way a phone is facing so the orientation of the map on the screen can be adjusted accordingly.
You know the Nokia sports tracker, how it keeps track of how far you've run or walked using GPS?
What happens when you're doing your workout on a treadmill in a gym?
Enter Nike which measures distance based on movement of your shoe.
Can some one please let me know if i-Phone is compatible with only a few specific brand of blue tooth headphones or head set or is it compatible with any brand of blue tooth headphone or head set
I love the anti-apple here, "no secondary camera??" ROFL ok dude, no multi-tasking?? that's ok I want my battery to last more then 5 hours, have fun with that.. oh yah you can carry a 2nd battery everywhere with you HAHA, oh and the dig. compass is actually a very cool feature if you bothered to read up on it and see the application use... Some people are just stupid and they all seem to post here =D
The T-Mobile G1 (Google) phone I have, has has the digital compass for months! Also, a spirit level. And the full original PacMan game, all free. I have over 20 apps and they're free. That said, Apple has the best games, like gold and The Need For Speed. I iPhone-3GS is what it should have been in the beginning, and it is definitely a winner. I may buy one.
I already own the Blackberry Bold and the original Samsung Omnia(5mp camera), so am thinking that maybe this time, I'll try an Apple.
