I really don't expect too much of apple, actually i am pretty dissapointed. There was a time that i could get excited but not now really. :S
All mobile phones that are officially released will have an excellent photographic profile picture. Either touched up or professionally shot. So it is not fair to question the design on this iphone model yet. I owned Nokia N97 and the pics that are professionally taken and photoshopped are very impressive but not in real life. Most people judge a phone design are loosely based on the photo that are professionally taken or ever digitally touched up.
I have tried few touchscreen OS and even Nexus One, in fact I still don't really find it satisfied in terms of cleanliness, straight forward and usability. It is true that iPhone does not have some capabilities other phones have but vice versa those phones don't have what iphone has. None of the mobile phones in the industry out there are even near perfect. It all takes time. iPhone revolutionized mobile touch screen at least. Look at how many mobile phone industries out there start producing a large display phone and start using capacitive touch screen like iphone.
I feel that people have to look at mobile phone from many aspects. Marketing, target audience, user experience, market needs, it all plays apart. None of the mobile phone can fulfill everybody's needs yet.
Feedback and reviews are fine and compulsory but stop complaining bluntly and blindly.
I own an iPhone 3gs, and compared to to the 1st offering, which I upgraded from, the 3gs is a speed demon. It runs and opens apps without any lag, and allows for multi-tasking (with Apple Apps). The upcoming 4G from all indication is not going to be much of an upgrade for current 3gs owners with the exception of design, and maybe a slightly improved battery life due to a larger unit. The real bummer is that Apple refuses to utilize FLASH, and still will not accomdate it's customers by not designing a user changable battery system. This is not a wise choice if Apple wants the iPhone to become a corporate tool.
missed good old days of siemens- be inspired ...they had lots of design solutions this is so boring
control freak, yes. god complex, yes. what steve jobs makes the public will remake, better. Jailbreak is the perfect example. God I love rebels
whatever you say the memory is massive, 80 gb what else do you want,design is pretty much stupid and camera is going better and what is the price?? that will be very MASSIVE
I'd be really disappointed if these are the actual specs of the 4G. Please Apple, make something that can compete with other phones on the market hardware wise. Stop relying on your software! See the Nokia N8 =)
apple....you need to come up with a phone that much better compared to the market right now...this is just really disappointing

4 models discontinued & nokia still managed to stay way ahead of all it's competition.
Don't worry Apple will discontinue some of it model too, just like they started with the original model just three years old, that's over 17% of iphone users
With nokia & all other phone manufacturing companies you have an option to choose whatever phone you
You should know this if you really work for a cellular network company.

Mate just don't buy an iphone... Apple DOSNT give a sh|t about wat you think... Actually nobody cares...
[deleted post]I work for a telco, Nokia has gone down hill, their making alot of crappy phones right now, where had to discontinue 4 models over the last 2 years, fell sorry for the millions who ended up with one. their not like how they where...
so not ijunk... glad you can count numbers...
DO u research!
Just don't buy it if you don't like it, Don't complain about what it CANT do.
[deleted post]thats a stupid thing to say considering how many different models nokia have out on the market compaired to apple. I hate the iphone and you couldnt pay me to use one, but that statement was just plain stupid :)
Anonymous, 02 May 2010I have a 3GS but I cannot stand Apple being a CONTROL FREAK!!! Th 4g is just another disappoin... moreso what are you complaining about? If you dont want your 3gs the way it is then why did you bought it in the first place? your just one of those iphone haters thats pretending they own an iphone which is not...
the front is better then 3gs...but overall design 3GS is more ellegant...this one looks a bit clumsy. But the specs is incredible. Can not imagine how fun you play with your finger touch with that specs in iphone.
I love how everyone is bad mouthing the iPhone, calling it 4 years behind other mobiles etc. What other phone has 80GB of storage space? Or a 960x640 resolution screen? that's higher than some netbooks. The only reason Nokia is doing so well and first in the smartphone market share is because they make phones that are pieces of s**t, but cheap to buy. Blackberry are second because business's need their superior email capabilities. And the iPhone is third because it's just a f***ing good phone. It's third party applications out-do anything else out there and it's web browser is second to none. So you can bitch all you want about the iPhone, it's just going to get more popular.
I have a 3GS but I cannot stand Apple being a CONTROL FREAK!!! Th 4g is just another disappointment no change in mentality.
No removable batteries, no video fone, no SD card removable, no external software allowed unless you use app store. WTF!
The only thing it has going for it now was the interface and the App store but now Android has caught momentum with nearly just as good interface and apps. To all you apple die-hard whom are mostly brain dead, good luck and follow whatever apples tell you to do like a sheep, Goodbye apple "BIG" brother forever, you sux.
