Most look like that we have to wait for new 5G to be more or less equal to competition.Steve Jobs always find the way to sell re-innovative old ideas as something revolutionary. Relay on Apple store as "strong point" is just cheating. Who need 150K of rubbish? Steve give us something real new and innovative. Something to drool for!
Anonymous, 26 May 2010I'm about to go to USA for studying. I looked up in the internet, they are saying that good ph... moreYes. the phone becomes yours after the 2 year contract. the 2 year contract means you have to use AT&T for 2 years and u r not eligible for an upgrade.
If you want to break the contract (like surrender the phone or move to another network, you have to pay a good contract breakage fee of $375, which is prorated.)
I'm about to go to USA for studying. I looked up in the internet, they are saying that good phones are available for free, but you have to sign a 2-year contract. Does anybody knows how that works? Will the phone become mine after those 2-years, so I can take it back home??
Great. I spell with my little eye something beginning with I. Nokia have something very spécial to arrive. S^3 will be hardware accelerated ui. Simpler functionality within menus getting rid of old tap & click click making navigation & access to apps quickly. Nokia & symbian are making application design simple for someone with no programming skills required. Applications written for meamo, meego will automatically work for symbian too. Wider application base should triple app stores & help nokia play catch up to apple. Future flash support which already accelerates 75% of the full web will work seamlessly across these three platforms.
this phone looks great on the spec's but in design it looks like a huge step back it's a hideous phone but with the offical announcement yet to be made we dont know yet if these are offical or just a bunch of lies to throw us off the scent the real iPhone 4g could be a very diffrent phone from what we see here to many companies are conveniently losing prototype models of thier latest phones for me to take them seriously (motorola android shadow and the iPhone) this is a huge step for apple so i hardly think they would have been so careless with thier prototype i personally think its a huge ploy but we shall see soon.
Anonymous, 26 May 2010R u crazy? My I910 which came out in 2008 has a good quality 5mp camera and ur saying Iphones... moreMega Pixels are not everything when it comes to cameras. The earlier iPhones, although having smaller MPs had an excellent sensor, so could take better pics than their higher MP counterparts.
zaza, 25 May 2010apple should made a mini iphone!They are, its called the ImabitsmallerPhone.
In all seriousness they are but it will be the Mini I imagine.
It will be announced a month after release of the 4g/HD.
YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST
R u crazy?
My I910 which came out in 2008 has a good quality 5mp camera and ur saying Iphones 2mp and 3mp was good compared to competition.
I'm sure there were many other phones which had much better cameras then the iphone even though they came b4.
who said no video calling, there is front camera, i will buy this cell, look at the specifications
display 640x960 awesome man
camera 5mp (even 3mp/2mp was great then other competitors)
I don't know how much it will cost , but it may be one of my favourite phones and I'll buy it az soon az I can.
i won't buy this either if it's the real thing. i will stick with my iphone 3g. this design looks like a clone from china, so ugly. if apple really did design it, they should start finding a new one coz this design is crap!!
Praveen, 25 May 2010I don't why this Apple model also not introducing the Vedio Call Facility (Front Camera)It says in the specs that there is a secondary camera for video calling... :S
Anonymous, 23 May 2010Optus girl,
While I agree about the Iphone being better than Nokia in terms of software an... moreJust to get this straight. Maemo is not a version of Android. In fact it is worlds apart. Maemo, and MeeGo when it is done, are desktop operating systems fit into a phone size device.
You can run a python server on the N900 with Maemo. Other OS's do not even come close. Compare Maemo to Ubuntu, or XP.
Mario, 23 May 2010Well, well, well, what have we got here . . . People talking about N8 when this is supposed to... moreHi Mario,
Even though the I like the N8 a lot, what you just said is not true. It uses an ARM11, indeed, but no A9 or anything. What makes this thing so incredibly fast is the GPU, by broadcom, and the S^3 hardware accelerated UI. This is the reason the N8 is pooping all over the Omnia HD, and even more so on the 3GS.
the new Iphone may be even a little faster, but the downsides are horrible battery life, staid design, no flash, no hdmi, no camera ( i know there is one, but compared to the N8, it doesnt count) no SD,... I could go on.
If you really need a lot off relatively useless apps, get the Iphone. If you want to be part of a new era in mobile devices, get the Nokia N8. S^3 contains Qt, which means that apps written for Maemo, MeeGo, S^3 etc can all run on S^3. These are no fart apps either. N8 is going to be tough to beat for the new Iphone, even though it is just over half the price. HALF!.
