Joeyfallon, 01 Oct 2009Orange to launch in Ireland ? Now that IS big news.orange canot lanuch in ireland because of meteor
[deleted post]Vodafones customer services is bad? Oranges is by far the worst and was 'awarded' that title officially a few years ago!!
'whoops spelling mistakes'
Or, 01 Oct 2009Let me just also add that I seriously doubt anyone but fanboys would care about if their phone... moreWhat it shows is that more people browse the web on iPhones than any other phone.
This comes down to usability.
Nokia sells the most smart phones but figures like this show that people aren't using the smartphone features.
Let me just also add that I seriously doubt anyone but fanboys would care about if their phone lead the mobile browsing race. That's like caring about which company makes the best wrapper that toilet paper comes in. It's a big deal, kids =P.
[deleted post]What does that have to do with multitouch and the fact that 60% use the multitouch feature on the iphone specially on browsing....how often do you us the MT feature on the browser or anyone .most people that get the iphone don't even know what multitouch is or does
Tucks, 30 Sep 2009Well i didn't say bugless. It has least bugs out of any phone os, barr non-smartphones. and th... moreWeak multitouch is a gimmick and overhyped and i had the N810 for 2 years so don't tell me about downgrading and multitouch on a tablet cause you just failed again

This is the intelligent, constituted response I was hoping for, instead of dealing with those annoying iFans. You picked the iPhone because it has very good choices and features, and not because of company worship. Every phone has flaws, but at least you can compromise on them. That's what I like in a phone user =].
I have an Omnia HD and I hate the fact that you can't multitouch. I loved that feature on the iPhone and other capacitive-screen phones. I am happy with this normality however, because it has other pluses. I am definitely looking forward to Nokia's take on multitouch capacitive devices, with the X6. It looks to be a great competitive entry =).
jazzyl, 30 Sep 2009well we've had both the iphone 3g and 3gs with vodafone here in South Africa for a while now!!!!Its relating to a UK release. You may of had it on Voda SA but not Voda UK.
cpw, 30 Sep 2009that's not true. We've been selling the iphone since launch and its as popular as ever. We're ... moreAs I explained, the public can be quite capricous, and as soon as a competitor releases a worthy rival to the iPhone they will have no conscience about jumping ship.
You will notice that every mobile phone maker is releasing new devices on a regular basis. This isn't because they have a warchest of cash to dispose of; it is to try and keep ahead of the competition. Apple, despite releasing the 3GS, have kept the same look since 2007.
Vodafone Newbie, 30 Sep 2009I understand and appreciate this, but my point is that the general public are quite fickle and... morethat's not true. We've been selling the iphone since launch and its as popular as ever. We're constantly shipping new stock in. No-one has moaned about the design to me yet. I see your point, but the fact is voda haven't actually sold one iphone yet so how can you say that??
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2009bugless XD your too loyal to apple stop sucking steve jobs nuts please.like i said you don't n... moreWell i didn't say bugless. It has least bugs out of any phone os, barr non-smartphones. and the fact that you can double tap to zoom; you're narrow minded and uninspiring dude. The fact you don't have to double tap free's up that function for a different feature, think about it. If touchscreens are going to progress, then technology like this is the way we move forward ignoramous. Just because your phone doesn't have multi-touch doesn't mean it's no good.
Imagine spending hundreds of pounds on a touch tablet and you can't multi-touch!! You'd be peeved off, and thats because your paying for the next technology. Not having multi-touch means your more limited than not having multi-touch in lehman's terms
I think you should downgrade your phone, you obviously dnt undertand technology.

I spend a lot of time dealing with complaints about that P... moreI couldn't agree more, but then again I have never questioned the iPhones capabilities or popularity. My original post stated that Apple were the big winners here, and also to try and encourage them to update their design.
I also agree that the Storm is terrible, but the Bold or Curve are a credit to RIM and signifies their intention to move with the times. Perhaps Apple should take note and do the same.

I spend a lot of time dealing with complaints about that POS, we send them off, Blackberry replaces them and the customers come back a few weeks later with the same complaint.
Eventually quite a few get iPhone's and we never see them again.
No-one wants Android phones, you pull them out in front of the average customer and it's like "meh, where are the iPhone's?".
Maybe among phone geeks Android has some relevance but they probably would have bought a WinMo phone anyway.
Even the N97 is a hard sell, a few years ago people couldn't get enough of the flagship N-series phones but now they just don't care.
The N96 was just a big flop, I think Nokia would like to forget they ever made it.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2009They already are flying off the shelves, we can't get enough of them. Just think of all the... moreI understand and appreciate this, but my point is that the general public are quite fickle and will soon tire of the same tired old look. It will only be a matter of time before they start looking for the next fashion accessory. iPhone run the risk of losing a loyal customer base because of their reluctance to employ a new design. We are already seeing this with the emergence of the Blackberry or Android phones.
