Video calling and a front facing camera? it's like apple's preteding to be that its the first phone in the world to have this what half decent phone doesnt have this and a led flash for the camera ground breaking stuff not.....
the iPhone is like a Toyota, that keeps putting out the same old engine every year with a bit of pannel shape modification and one year, integrates mp3 to the stereo, next year integrates bluetooth. I mean WTF? Can't they do better? HTC's are much better IMHO. Apple is loosing it's unique touch. It's just over hyped now. They have the technology, but just milking us cows with mild updates and making us pay for it, rather than giving us the perfect feature packed phone. Shame on you apple!
Yeah I lOve Iphone application, its so entertain and many htc phone app can't do the same for the app especially for music (wivi band and Bebot robot used for synth).. Iphone are amazing in software...

Give me a break. The so called breaking through technology which was available on other mobile phones for years. I don't like closed OS. I want freedom, get an Android phone.
I work in a phone store and i sell phones that are less then €50 that can do video calling.
Im gald the iphone can do video calling but hate the way they think there the 1st to think of it. It been out for YEARS.
The idea of putting the wifi bluetooth and 3g into the frame sound really cool but the i think it silly cause what happen if you let it gets a small fallS.
That why they put them parts inside the phone.
(Sorry about the spelling)
JonnyB, 07 Jun 2010I do find it odd that the new iPhone gets such low scores. I mean, sure, they're relative to e... moreDo you realize that the phone has not gone on sale yet and know one has used it as yet in order to rate it!
I have to say i have gone thru some peoples comments. I find some of it to be so ignorant. Apple always comes out with good products this is one of them. You people have to understand its not just the hardware its the software behind it. This product will sell so fats with cooperate and enterprises because of its OS. Please before you bash it read about understand it. There new OS will override the blackberry enterprise server.
The Sony﻿ Ericsson Z1010 had video calling in 2003. That's over 7 years ago. Way to almost catch up with everyone else and take credit for other companies innovations, yet again Apple.

They spent a lot of money on something that has only just had features added to it that had been in other phones for years. Its an inferior product so they rationalize there decision to help themselves feel better.
"Add this sort of loyalty to something expensive, or a hobby which demands a large investment of time and money, and you get a fanboy. They defend their favourite stuff and ridicule the competition, ignoring facts if they contradict their emotional connection."
"n the other hand, if the product is unnecessary, like an iPad, there is a great chance the customer will become a fanboy because they had to choose to spend a big chunk of money on it. It’s the choosing one thing over another which leads to narratives about why you did it.
If you have to rationalise why you bought a luxury item, you will probably find ways to see how it fits in with your self-image."
HTC EVO 4G its much better
iphone Os kills the device android or Wm are much better
Wooow!!! It is just another Apple Marketting Gimic.
My Nokia N97 has all of that plus more like micro sd cars slot and FM Radio, Free Voice navigation GPS..etc
Iphone is a slave to a network, not legally unlocked.
Cannot be used on other networks. I will never buy IPhone, not until they will be at par with Nokia, Sony or other top brands, and Apple I will eat for lunch.
This is more of an upgrade than I could have ever hoped for, really. From one of the lowest ppi to the highest. New 5 MP camera brings it up to par with most other high-end phones. Video call camera is the second in the US. Screen technology is supposedly better than AMOLED.
What else to apple-haters have to criticize?
"OMG it doesn't have 8 MP camera!" I've seen some pretty crappy 8 MP shots, and some really nice 3.2 - 5 MP shots. Get off your little cloud and realize this is wonderful hardware with the same amazing, stable software it's had for years, only better.
