[deleted post]When you switch back to tetris wouldn't you have lost the game?
Tetris is for girls.
Labarinth is for gheys.
Congratulations ghey, girl.
[deleted post]I HARDLY even know what phone you are talking about..
and even if I knew, how the hell is playing 2 games a big deal in the world of smartphones? I have way better things to multitaking-ly waste my time with than switching between games to prove a dull point....
deep space bar, 13 Sep 2009 is an apple standard no people made it so it fails stop with excuses for this piece of ... moreApple standard? All other mobile os's inherit the same features thus making it what it is, a mobile os. The only difference is that Apple controls this one.
g4vysd, 13 Sep 2009why all this argument.
iphone is not a smartphone. People need to realise this. Ofcourse that... moreHow about running a photo slideshow while the music player plays in a true example of multitasking or using the music player from within a game, or using the mail App or Safari from within another App that is multitasking.
The reason their are dictionary's is to set standard definitions so people like you with no credibility can't just make things up to suit their point of view.

g4vysd, 13 Sep 2009why all this argument.
iphone is not a smartphone. People need to realise this. Ofcourse that... moreSmartphone or not(in your opinion), you need to realize that this runs a proper operating system and not just some simple flash UI and such like in the Samsung phone you mentioned. By default, it has no multi-tasking but the 3GS has the hardware to do this. If you jailbreak you will be able to download a Cydia app called Backgrounded. This allows you to minimise any app you want until the 3GS runs out of memory (which is quite a lot of apps opened at once).
Another pointer that would put this phone in the smartphone category is that there are API's to access for developers. The apps that are created are able to take control of the hardware of the device. On a non-smartphone, you won't be able to do this as it's not a proper operating system.
If you are still not convinced it's a smartphone then explain how people are able to create apps like iBluetooth (jailbroken app that enables OBEX BT sending) or turn-by-turn voice navigation apps? On a regular non-smartphone, again like the Samsung you mentioned, these aren't possible.
why all this argument.
iphone is not a smartphone. People need to realise this. Ofcourse that depends on your own definition of a smartphone however to me if it doesnt multitask, ie open 2 or more games at the same time (and i dont mean playing music whilst emailing)as most ordinary phones can do that.
When it comes to user friendliness and fluidity this phone is untouchable. however feature wise, it lacks. this phone is not a smartphone just like how the samsung s8000 isnt a smartphone although it can put most smartphones to shame. I cant justify spending so much on the 3gs. an fm radio and bluetooth transfer will be nice.. and please dont go on about internet radio. Internet radio does not provide me with local news!! and neither does podcast. It might do in America but not in the UK!!
I've really had enough of this douchebaggery
You Apple owners are so smug. I've gone over PAGES of comments of how self-righteous and grandiose you guys are. You think just because the iPhone selling out was the start of the touchscreen phase, you seriously need help..and a mirror for you and your phone.
So the phone sells excellent on the market. Great. I have one, so I am a prime example. But I, at least, are aware of it's flaws, and that better phones are gonna come along. We've had this conversation before in this forum, FTjb, haven't we?
And you also need to realize this, there are gonna be phones that are going to smash the iPhone for it's flaws, and not enough smiley faces, comments about how people are mean, stupid, and ignorant, are gonna change that. So smile away your ignorance, smile, smile away =)

I have it out most of the time because I'm always using it, such as now posting here.
I thought there was free wifi everywhere in America, judging by all the people whining about contracts with data plans.
Good thing I've never been in a Starbucks then, some McDonalds here have free wifi, I thought Starbucks would be the same.

Deep space bar, 12 Sep 2009Obviously The celebs have them so kids and adults want it as well and have the same mind set... moreIt's not the iphone owners that have the problem. And it's not the iphone owners who think that way, BUT YOU. Why are you checking them out in the first place? It is you who cares what other people's phones are. Don't pass your negative personality on us. I pull out my iphone a lot because I update my Facebook a lot of times and check my emails and my YM. I do a lot with my iphone and I am not going to hide in the bathroom every time I need to use my iphone just so you wouldn't think I'm insecure or I'm trying to show off. You are the insecure one, and bitter =)

Again, I am not saying that the iphone is the first touchscreen phone ever. What I am saying is, the iphone started the touchscreen craze. Do you understand what that means? That's very simple english. It was not LG. If it was LG, then how come all the touchscreen phones are being compared to the iphone right away? When someone says touchscreen phone, it's the iphone the pops up right away, not Prada. Prada would have to thank the iphone, because if not for the iphone, not a lot of people knew it existed.
Satz, 12 Sep 2009lol ? wtf ?
when a touch screen device released after iphone = copying Iphone ?Of course not. But if they copy the iphone's form factor, it's features, it's touch gestures, it's app store, it's itunes, it's browser, it's icons, it's interface, etc. It is copying the iphone =)
So yes. Other phone manufacturers are not just merely producing touchscreen phones. They're copying how the iphone works. An that is copying.
