i dont generalize people...but those who ask for android really know their stuff...the iphone is for simpletons i find cz its easy to use n loads of ppl have 1 so NO its not for normal people...ive sold loads of x10s n desires to non techys but if they have the money they will always be happy with the iphone no matter what people say...most consumers just want reliability and other brands generally dont have it...so no matter how poor tech wise the iphone is..it will forever sell on the basis of rep and reliability...personaly i have a g1 bb bold and ipod touch and i cant choose but my customers who want a good phone and will pay will ALWAYS be happy with the iphone..END OF!! I personally think the iphone is FAAR too restricted and android is better but i have had my phone and seen some android handsets crash loads! iphone rarely has problems for me and it just sells itself. as i said before blackberry is where the boom is at 50% of our sales have to be blackberrys !!! btw my figures are amazing i did 80% of full timers target working a 30% of their hours in may... so i might not be ure sales consultant but the customers LOVE ME!!
For godsake u can't even connect with an Iphone, u can't send files by bluetooth from and Iphone to another device only maybe if u found an app for it and if it worked that is. Apple are so close on their devices but that doesn't mean u can't connect with other devices :s I had an iphone 3GS and it feels so empty as a smartphone its just filling it with apps that's it, oh yea and the touch screen + plus the multitouch are the good stuff but that's it (just get an ipod touch if u want the iphone but without the phone. That's not a smartsphone purpose :s

I don't see it and I'm not buying a phone, especially a large touchscreen, without one. They do fall on the ground sometimes.
It doesn't matter how tehnologically lacking the iPhone 4 is. The fact of the matter is, at the end of the day, thanks to Apple's brilliant advertising and marketing campaigns and branding, and the hundreds of thousands of diehard fanboys and girls out there thanks to the marketing, the iPhone 4 will sell well. And love em or hate em, you have to give props to them for continuing to come out with stylish, sleek, appealing products. Selling has always been 80-90% appearance, and 10-20% actual substance. So Apple will continue to do well, and that's why I hold some Apple stock LOL.
So guys, quit your complaining or your boasting, it doesn't matter. Like I said, in the end, this phone will sell well, and as a company, Apple is very smart to get so much market penetration. Those of us that do our research will know which product best suits our individual needs.
PS. Does anyone know the resolution on the front-facing cam? Is it VGA? There doesn't seem to be any mention of it anywhere,
To IPhone Haters:
Why do you waste your time convincing yourselves iphones is crap??
Better then the xperia?? Buddy plzzz Xperia is not even better then the iphone 3GS.
Nokia N8 Looks nice. It has an amazing camera 12 megapixels. But what about the apps?? Can it be Jailbroken?? The video is not even 30 FPS.
Who cares if the iphone doesnt have expandable memory. I have a 16gb and thats never full. How much crap do you people keep on your phones.
Iphone has the biggest display screen with the BEST RESOLUTION. Stainless material, cannot be scratched.
This phone is ridiiicuuuulousss, I cant beleive their are so many haters.
"This phone is made for idiots" LOOOOL.
Apple is great at adds. OLED? I already have that on my sony x series walkman with features to die for. It's little things like this that Apple makes so much noise about that piss me off why can't they just be normal. I like their style, design and features but could you show me something new Apple like nose cancellation in ear head phones Oh, my bad, It already there from Sony. I work for a mobile phone insurance company and 80% of the claims are for a damaged iphone.
Video calling over WiFi only? Come on Apple. I think Sony Ericsson events real stuff and Apple copy but advertise every single feature like it was never in existence.
I hope this time apple will work on the battery too because the battery takes us back to the 80’s. Be more specific.
Apart from those faults and many more to be discovered, ANOTHER GREAT DESIGN!

THIS IS AWEFUL! ONLY MICROSIM!? WHAT IS APPLE THINKING!? We dont have Microsims where I live, so I cant get it, apple pulled a big stunt here, they gonna lose money if the reg sims dont work.

You sound like you generalize. iPhone is for "normal" people, Android for "techys". Yuck. The difference between the 2 operating systems is personal taste, not nerds and geeks and normal people. Believe it or not, NEITHER of the OS' are better than the other. One person can't decide for everyone. It's all about taste, some people I know love Android and think it's flawless and others love iPhone and believe it's perfect. They are BOTH right because it is all about what the user feels. If you have to magnify that how you believe everyone feels about Android or iPhones then I don't wanna buy phones from you, sorry.

is it possible to change the messasaging tones from the defaults on the phone..
I have worked at phones 4 u for over 2 years now and rep goes a long way....I'm sorry but the iphone offers hands down the best user experience than any other phone and that's what consumers want...the real techhys actually buy android from my experience because it offers more for their money but that's like 20% of my customers are actually in the know!! Normal people want something that works...has a great internet experience and is cheap so iphone works....most of my customers actually buy blackberrys tbh cz its another great user experience...I don't think I could live without my blackberry! Nokia is just an awful brand and I wouldn't touch symbian its too unstable and I have nothing but trouble with it that's y n97 n satio got pulled!!!! Samsung make great phones but have no idea what customer service is and sony have had their problems but the x10 is the key for them...its great but a little slow but froyo will fix that!! Anyway in 3 years people will only want 3 os...BB ..android and iphone!!! The market is too saturated and symian, bada etc will fall by the way side

[deleted post]The specs on the N8 may be higher in some cases. But do no compare to the quality of any apple product, thats where apple has its true success. Superb quality and design with excellent functionality makes it one of the most popular smart phones!
