this was gna b the decider for me between the new iphone and the palm pre. now without a doubt i will get palm pre. they only put a compass in the phone. wtf do i need that 4? i can read maps. a slightly faster processor and slighlty longer battery life, yet they exclude the ability to multitask. and they hv convinced the remaining iphone fans that multitasking is bad, it drains battery life. "shockingly" they hv not thought of just not multitasking if they dont wna drain battery life. the least apple cud hv done was use an AMOLED display - this wud also help the battery life. but no. they will continue to introduce about 2 features at a time so every1 who owns 1 feels they need to get the next 1.
the days of apple being creative and coming up with interesting ideas r over.
All fine and dandy but has the call drop outs been improved. I know they brought the 2.1 update out but the fixed some but not all of those problems.
These are amazing phones for everything but..well...erm...phone calls!
At least in the UK on o2 anyhow.
what about the processor? and the price tag in egypt or other countries but the US??? and what about the AMOLED screen u have been talkin about???? actually, am depressed, i dont feel big difference between 3G and 3GS :S:S:S
its retarded to make a new phone that inherits the same shell as the old one. especially when u have only 2 current offerings, Apple.

The biggest drawback on on iphone is that when it hangs (some instruments very ofte... moreit just wudnt be apple without the hanging
but it looks gud and 4 apple fanboys thats all the matters to them. also dont forget dropped calls. v practical in an emergency.
maybe they cud use it as a distraction in an emergency, or maybe they wud learn their lesson the hard way.
Just to add in i should say they WILL cost or ARE EXPECTED TO COST as they are about to be realeased soon :)
In UK the 3G S is more expensive than N97.
3GS costs £538.30 for 32 GB on o2.
N97 Costs £499.99 (32 GB unlocked!!!)
On a contract 3G S is more expensive too.
On an 18 month contract 3GS costs £175.19 on £44.05/month o2 tariff (trustedreviews.com News)
The N97 (18 month)is FREE on £45/month contract (Vodafone.co.uk)
Now many ppl may not like Vodafone but im sure N97 will cost less with other carriers considering the big price differnce between the two
Rory, 09 Jun 2009WoW a compass. So when your kidnapped and taken to a undisclosed location and abandened with n... morelol u can also try and call someone :P
the cool thing is the mobile finder SWEET !
The biggest drawback on on iphone is that when it hangs (some instruments very often) one has to wait till the battery drains and the recharge to make a call !!! what the F!!! In an emergency, if u r using an iphone and the phone hangs u r as good as a sitting duck !!
wat is the advantage of getting this phone?
there r phones with much better cameras if u wna take pictures and a lot better video recording capabilities.
nope n97 has 32gb and is expandable up to 64gb. some manufacturers might add dual memory card expansion soon
nope just like ipods, there r phones with better audio quality. some hv surround sound. and natural sound engine like omnia hd
nope. there r other phones with more dpi and some with larger screens. quality on these r amazing.
it cant even multitask - still!
fading away. others r starting to use or hv started using capacitive. palm pre and a few lg phones also support multitouch. and neonode phones were even more responsive thnx to using optical touchscreen in 2002 - but the company is now bankrupt
OS & UI?
even the OS is not as good as the competition now. palm pre has a better OS - congratz to them 4 working since 2005 on it, and it shows. other companies r quickly catching up.
yes but just buy ipod touch - its a lot cheaper and u can buy a better phone. better yet, after 2yrs, u wud still hv paid less than iphone 3gs.
yes but just look at other phones as well like lg dg900 (crystal) with a transparent keypad. it looks better than this. it also packs more features in a smaller phone. however, owning an iphone has become a fashion statement. just the apple logo is the only thing the competition doesnt hv
Praveen, 09 Jun 2009when will the phone b launched in INDIA & wats the cost....?it should be launched by july 17th or august 17th, and will be priced at around 36K just like the iphone 3g....
im wondering now. can iphone 3gs send/receive stuff using its bluetooth or not?
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009only those of you who cant afford a iphone say its a waste of money. Had a 2g and 3g and cant ... morejust wondering how much do u pay?
cos in the states its way over $2000 including the 2yr contract. and maybe it the best touchscreen phone 4 ur market, but there r better 1s in other markets.
Ive Heard that the Iphone 3G S will be Released in South Africa on the 26th of September 2009.
only those of you who cant afford a iphone say its a waste of money. Had a 2g and 3g and cant wait for the 3gs in South Africa and believe me we pay a lot more for it there than in the USA. Best touch screen phone on the market. nothing comes close.
Apple really failed with this one...like how you make an identical phone with a few more features same design and call it 3Gs that's foolishness,btw what CPU will this phone have? And no Flash support? NO,thanks
