Whether it be with your PC or 'the cloud', this is an absolute must, and you should be able to sync all your data (the S60 based Nokia phones, for example, could sync notes)..
Third party apps
No platform is so complete that it can entirely do without the enhancements of third party software. (And by "software" I mean native apps, not Java MIDlets.)
This is not a clear cut feature though.
The stupi d suc k iphone 4 does not multitask, yet it is clearly NOT a smartphone. But as I have noted, not being able to multitask restricts what you can do with your device in some situations, and lacking it certainly gives you less of a PC experience,and capabilities. Besides, it's not completely fair to compare a device launched in 2009 with current phones, is it?
It should have all standard connectivity/radio options (yes, I am looking at you and POINT MY FINGER 2 YOU STUPI D iphone).Badly again..NO bluetooth transfer..
Office documents editing
At the very least a smartphone should be able to open and view Office documents, but any serious smartphone will also allow you to edit them on your phone.NOKIA DOES IT..whateve r in Nseries,Eseries,Xseries,Cseries or Pseries(coming soo n)
It should be able to provide a reasonable browsing experience. This of course means different things depending on who you ask,flash contents,download files espeaciall y MP3,MP4,Video,Pictures/phot os,all again.. and obviously it is not the same thing to surf the web only a 2.0" non-touch display as on a 4.3" touch screen. But the browser engine should at least be able to render reasonably complex sites.NOKIA will announced N9 flagship with 4.1 inch multitouch screen soon..so how if you got retina rubbish display,and who cares about the 640x960 resolution screen..NOT US E !!!!!!!!!!!!
A device that fulfills these criteria is, to me, a real smartphone.
Remember,NOKIA will announce the new Symbian^3,Symbian^4,Maemo5,Maemo6 and Meego phone after NOKIA N8-00..Android 3.0 Gingerbread and Windows phone 7 will follow up to released too..
After that..i0s DIE..and say GOOD BYE TO iphone..
SMART GUY DONT USE THE iphon e..
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010To ALL the Apple haters,have a cry and a sook,this is a great phone,got mine today,just been r... moreWow, another fool taken in by Apple propoganda video. Funny that apple show 'other phones having problems' only after they fail to 1) sweep everything under the rug and failing that 2) blame customers- there first response was 'you're holding it wrong', i.e. exactly the same way steve jobs was holding it when he presented it and the natural grip that everyone holds a cellphone in. Don't be taken in by greedy corporations... they aren't your 'friends'
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010In Australia, where we have decent phone networks THERE IS NO ISSUE with iPhone 4's. Telstr... moreYesterday the phone got released in The Netherlands , whe of reception , but it keeps remaining two bars and no call drops. So i need to confirm ur message that AT&T network just sucks!
still the best phone in the world better than n8 shit even if dosen't have a signal
Bad Apple, 30 Jul 2010I feel sorry for you and clonded fan like you, because you got this phone and its too late you... morei disagree man, i think that the new apple phone is a piece of art just like many other phones, it's specs are good but the camira aint good enough compare with other phones. but as have seen before, the iphone 3gs had a megapixel camer but it worked fantastic and the clarity of the picture is way better than most phones. in my opineon, if u r rich and a big fan of apple products then go with 4G, otherwise i 100% advise people to get the nokia N8 as it is freakin awesome and its gonna rape 4G frome the behind
If you dont want to make calls on you phone then yes, but if you do......No way!
Hey any1 cn u plz tel me d price f apple iphone 4 nd 3gs in australia and london..Thnx
Looks like the bad media publicity has no effect on the ip4 at all. Check this out.
its probably at&t which is causing all those reception problems. in singapore, there is no problem and the signal works just fine even if u cover the left antannae.
I have had nokia and motorolla in the the past and they all work fine, but when I first lay my hand on iPhone 3gs I never look back at those phone any more. Yesterday I stop by apple store inside the mall check out the new iPhone4 to me it's a high quality built but some how my 3gs
feels more comfortable in my hand than the iPhone4 very disappointed been wanting the iphone4 so bad, walk out the store, across from it there's a tmobile store saw the new samsung vibrant WOWWWW never thought I'll see a phone as good as iPhone4 if it's not better.
I also saw someone been shown HDMi output on Driod X phone, I'm not sure why Steve said i wouldn't want that either, it looked very cool. I have an LCD 26 with Hdmi in.
Almost all phone have that microSD from what i could see.Even models released this year.Why would steve say its obsolesce,Russel the phoneguy said mini notebook PC have microSD slots in them now.
get out to a phone shop and see that there are good things been said to other phones.
Steve maybe a little wrong
I had a demo yesterday on the Samsung Galaxy.
Wow Steve is a lair, the guy was showing me features
that steve said i don't need or should like, but he seems wrong after i had 10 minutes using the phone.
The screen looked better and overall had a nicer more
professional style. I'm hopping to maybe do a trade in deal.
If you were like me , have a go, and I now think Steve is a lair and not nice. I actually wont that stuff Steve.
I now see why everyone is saying the i phone is behind.
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2010I'd be going with another provider, those Rogers guys didn't sound very professional.He also mentioned that it doesn't happen with the bumper on.

Anonymous, 31 Jul 2010I'd be going with another provider, those Rogers guys didn't sound very professional.I'm actually with Fido who is owned by Rogers.Went in there just to see if they had the new iphone4 so i could check out the antenna.I was kinda surprised that he told me that.Like i said though at the other store the demo signal bars never dropped after covering the bottom left side.
Allan, 31 Jul 2010To be honest where i live we have 2 rogers stores,one with just cell phones and the other is a... moreI'd be going with another provider, those Rogers guys didn't sound very professional.
