Only reason the other phone companies can NOT compete with Apple's iPhone is because of the iPhone's OS!
It's relatively SIMPLE to use and the apps included are also SIMPLE to use! PERIOD!
Look at Sony Ericsson and their Walkman phones... good media player but functionality and software SUCKS!
Too bad the iPhone is STILL LOCKED TO ATT in USA! It should be UNLOCKED as it is in most countries OUTSIDE the USA!!
Damn Apple/Att with their "exclusive" contract!
iphone (icon, or also known as irob) is no longer leading the way, new comers such as Wave, HTC desire, sony have catched up. The game is over for the iphone, 60% of components inside are Samsung and LG did anyone know that?.
Get real you people, by the way how is the antena hanging there, can you make a phone call? what a embaresment, its a joke, pay £500 and still have to hold your phone in such a way to have reception? and stupid director Steve think people are brainless and don't know how to hold the icon right!? shame on him. I have a 3Gs and I am selling it and going to Wave. time shows how bad this phone will do.
My reason is perfectly valid. Most of the platforms are able to bring seamless connection & interaction between multi technologies 7 their services they provide between cross compatible platforms. I see reasons for audio video streaming & flash playback. I see reasons for actually playing flash games, apps, java, MIDP 2.0 apps. I see reasons for having cross platform video calling support not just over WIFI but over 3G & with SKYPE & G TALK not manufacturer dependant one to one. Apples equilibrium gets worse limiting what you can do with hte outside software platforms. I see reasons for wanting mp3 ringtones, reasons for wanting Xvid, DivX, FLV native video playback. I see a need for wanting to watch movies in the correct 16:9 aspect ratio, not 3:2 which is pointless. I see a need for wanting bluetooth to work corectly through headsets with remote controls & filsharing to work properly between mobile & other devices with functional services. I see the need for use of this on my mobile. Iphone really is useless for people who expect these features on their mobile since these other extensible formats exist to anyone & everyone but apple.So yes they are of underlying importance.
Hey you cant compare apple with nokia cuz apple create one phone a year and nokia tens of phones a year..people choose from nokia what they like but you forced in apple to buy one type of a phone..nokia is number one in the world in sales!sorry for my english
i just popped in to find some technical info about the new iphone and to my disappointment all u guys are fighting like kids... just give some info so that others can benefit from ur experience. dont just start defending ur phones or ur egoes i shud say!!
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2010Non Iphone 4 users are affected by Iphone4. When non iphone 4 users are calling all those Ipho... moreAntenna problem?
Wow that is shocking, they should recall them all.
Research shows that 87% of people only use the texting feature and the calling feature. What makes you think it will be any different with this phone. People will have it just for the "ooh look at me and my self importance, I got a iPhone" people in general are shallow, false and fake. It was exactly the same with the Motorola V3, everyone wanted one because it was the thing to have at the time
people don't hate the iPhone. Hate Stevie Wonderless Yobs. He is the one who comes up with lame statements like 'you little people are holding your phones wrong and 'we brought the world video calling' only over wifi only iPhone to iPhone 5 years after video calling but we were first because I say so. Good luck using this feature with all the firewalls in place in corporate enviroments. tsk tsk
Will be my first Apple products (when white available mid-july). After many Philips, Nokia and SonyEricsson products. Don't like Nokia anymore and would like high-end from SE but this company failed to make highend products or even update their actual products (Satio is finished, X10 so laaaate)
Now iPhone has photo FLASH (hope Xenon for iPhone5) and I can get it !
Nice test :

It's really hard to admit that a person is duped. It's ok that my house is leaking. It's my house anyway. and i'm happy with it.
Why is this site full of iphone haters??...never give any of the iphones a good rating despite them being the best phones by a country mile!!
Non Iphone 4 users are affected by Iphone4. When non iphone 4 users are calling all those Iphone 4 users, they can't be reached or the call is dropped because of antenna problem.
