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
Praveen, 09 Jun 2009when will the phone b launched in INDIA & wats the cost....?August 09. Probably the same 31,000 (16GB) and 36,500 (32GB) rupees, though they can go a bit higher.
yeah due to price on an upgrade im steering clear of apple and looking at other phones.
It'll be released on the 19th of june for the 10 main countries US , UK and e.t.c . For the rest of the 80 countries will either be released on the 9th of July or 9th of August .
I feel that in UK we are getting ripped off because of O2 exclusivity..........
Price cuts in USA but not here, WTF.
nasr, 09 Jun 2009does the bluetooth(v2.1) has the a2dp sharing file for steroheadphones ???the new iphone 3gs has a2dp for stereo bluetooth
