Well, this phone has been surpassed many times over by much better devices. Looks like it is going to meet its demise this year. Lackluster sales and poor performance of the iPhone 4G is going to expose what more informed consumers have known for years, which is, "The iPhone has always been just a fad. It has never offered true notebook capabilities that a power user couldn't live without."

To a certain degree I would call myself a fanboy, but I do compare with what is out there before making any purchase.
You are right however that there are those who do feel that Apple can do no wrong.
The best option, in my mind, is to always to do a bit of research, find out what suits your needs best, and then go with that.
The readiness of Apple fanboys to buy everything that Apple throws at them unquestioningly will never cease to amaze me.
ppl say about the design of the is not so great y dont these ppl make their own custom made phone which can make them happy ppl should appreciate the new design and change coz we all need a change
if i buy someday an iPhone, then it woulda be iPhone 3G S, because this doesn't look so Apple than iPhone 3G S,3G or even "2G".

I'm not an Apple fan by any means. In fact, I avoided the iPhone until now because of its lack of MMS, lack of copy & paste, lack of Word and Excel editing, lack of multi-tasking, poor camera, poor battery, inflated tariff charges and dependence on iTunes. But my biggest gripes are finally resolved now. This is what the 4G would give me over my current phone if the leaked specs are correct:
Japanese language support out of the box
More on-board storage for apps, music, photos, videos
More and better travel, language learning and finance apps than any other OS
Better compatibility of apps due to strict guidelines specifically tailored for iPhone
More frequent firmware updates for handset
More finger-friendly UI
Finally a comparable camera
Hopefully similar or better battery performance
In time, a wealth of accessories
I'd love to have Flash support because many websites I regularly visit use it and I think Apple's anti-Flash stance is silly (it will take years for HTML 5 to replace Flash, if ever), but other phones also struggle with Flash, so that's not so much of a deal breaker. Still, I'm also keeping an eye on the Samsung Galaxy S (Android) and will compare user reviews once they are both released.
5 MP camera when the competition is moving to 8 MP and 12 MP and HD video? I know pixels mean squat AFA quality is concerned, but the point is that consumers do care for more MP (right or wrong, they do)and the iPhone's picture quality was always awful. Something tells me that this will be another crappy camera iPhone. Not that it really matters to Apple clients. They are always ready to pay whatever Steve Jobs asks for products with outdated features, like the iPad. The iPhone 4G will be no exception. When will Apple release a truly new iPhone, instead of just doing minor upgrades to the original?
why doesn't it use amoled screen which is much more better than TFT??
every fact i see about this new phone is a little disappointing..
but it's a relief that they put bigger battery and a very sharp screen..

Anyway, no thanks, but don't throw it out, you could always donate it, as there are plenty who would appreciate it. Thanks though.
Anyway, not really talking bout toys, more about the games, currently looking forward to Chaos Rings from Square Enix (iPhone exclusive), Warpgate and Street Fighter 4.

That's like saying Sony Ericsson won't bring out a new phone because they don't want to overshadow VAIO sales lol.
Everyone thinks this will be out 2010. But I don't think it will be out till 2011. The June 2010 release that has been fired around in the press was just based on past releases. Apple are pushing the ipad and will not let the iphone overshadow the first year for the ipad.
Anonymous, 21 Apr 2010It's a lot of fake advertising too.
They don't tell you you can't use blutetooth
they don'... moreyou dont have to tell what's not in the phone.
do other phone manufacturers like Nokia, Samsung, etc tell the entire world that some of their phones dont have this and that??
If you're going to sell a cookie you just made, will you tell people that it's not sugar free and will increase their sugar level, that it doesnt have cashews coz you didnt buy one, that it doesnt taste better than popular brands, that its smaller than what your neighbor is selling? of course not! you'll say the good things like it has more choco chip, its freshly baked compared to others, blah blah...
if you're smart, you'll get what im saying
