i dont own an iphone coz its too expensive but to those who keep bad mouthing iphone, you should at least admit that it is the phone most people want if not for the price. the apps are the one thats making iphone way too cool and it have the best touchsreen screen in the market not even nokia and samsung which have been in the business far longer than iphone can beat them.

As for childish comments.....have you actually read 50% of the responses on here? Full of "LOL"'s and iphone hate. Most reasonable responses here have actually come from iphone users, so get your facts right.
It seems like the trolls are the owners of other devices here.

The N97 is a SLOW, unresponsive piece of junk with VERY limited hardware specs (CPU, RAM).
It has a 2005 camera and a 1999 operating system.

You've just never used HTC phones and that's why you say such a wrong things. My father uses HTC HD. He uses it very frequently but his phone looks and feels like new one.
I've chosen Nokia n97 because I like it's keypad. It is much more comfortable to use it when surfing in Internet and writing something than doing the same with touchscreen of my sister's iPod Touch.
I respect your choice, but iphone users are abhorrent. Why they trying to prove that their phone is the best in the world? Each forum, each youtube video regarding to new phones, each place where people discuss phones - iphonotrolls are everywhere! Guys, you look like schoolchildren. Respect others' choice because each person has his own reason to buy Nokia or Iphone or something else. I don't play games on my phone, I don't need multitouch but I like keypad much more than touchscreen for inputing information. I like my phone. It has many advantages and it's quality is very good. IPhone is good too but it's not my choice because I like Nokia more.
Sorry for bad english.
Oh my god.
Nokia will have apple as forever rival
fucccck nokia for not announcing new flagship
fuccck apple for overcharging users
The iPhone was such a game changer, that every touchscreen device is compared to it. Simple. Does that mean it is a "failphone"? No. It doesn't. Quite the opposite. Just because you own a phone with a better CPU, camera and Bluetooth (bump, anyone?) it doesn't mean it is better. One thing that we have learnt, is that great support is more important than the latest features.
Look what happened with the N97 Nokia and the Samsung Omnia HD....

2)Sure would like to make this phone and lead the pack with far more features ... you have a Billion and a half US dollars to fund me ??

In every kind business world we need competitors to keep the balance of market,monopoly won't do any good to end users,as they'll have no other choice but to accept a single product or service from a single company,and make that particular company's wallet deeper.
If apple overtake nokia, they will be very arrogant,
if nokia has no rival, they will do the stupid spec for n98
Trust me, there's no way the O2 website should be used as a source for this kind of info. I can guarantee it's more a copy & paste job from their other non-iphone tariffs rather than any insider info - the O2 staff are normally more likely to find stuff out by reading it online than being told, so the web shop staff are normally some of the last to know.

You're right about recognizing the good things and the wrong things about all the brands,i've accepted the weaknesses of iPhone and i can deal with them,that's why i'll stick with my phone until iPhone 4G released.
I'm also a 3Gs user.
Sod stupid video calls. I'd just like a basic bloody pop up blocker, different message alerts, and some damn themes..nothing far out, this would even make me less likely to jailbreak.
As for my expectations for the next iphone. I only want the A4 chip and the super amoled screen, a 5mp camera w/ zoom features wouldn't hurt (although I'm honestly already happy with the iphone's 3.2mp camera), and maybe stretching the screen to 3.7 inches. I really could care less for full multitasking or video calling. I personally think that those features are better left to desktop computers and laptops. Video calling and multitasking will just drain the battery quickly. It's more cons that pros. But if ever they do add it, I'll just have to turn those off.
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2010The Iphone needs some basic hardware upgrade instead of small cosmetic stuff which in many way... moreSorry, but those features that you have brought up are not basic features. Those are your personal wishlist, but are not standard basic features that anyone should adapt.
Most users do not need dual sim cards. There are stylus available for capacitive screens, but why would I want that? A slideout qwerty would make the iphone look fat, if you can't live without it, get something else. I think a 4.3 screen would be too big for a pocketable phone. When the iphone first came out with a 3.5 screen, people were already happy and satisfied with 2.8 screens, so the iphone's 3.5 screen is more than the basic size. A xenon flash would be nice, but I can already see it eating battery life, especially when you said that you're going to use it as a torch, lol. Flash support will never come to the iphone. HTML5 will soon dominate. The iphone comes with a charger, and it works just fine, I don't need anything else. The iphone's internal memory is more than enough. It's a smartphone, not an external DD. The iphone has passed all test for safe level of harmful elements.
I have a better idea. Why don't you just make your own phone :)

I'm just saying that the iphone makes those features work really well and that it pushed other phonemakers to improve their features as well. I know my comments are true. I never said that no one uses video calling on their phones, did I? What I am saying is, it is a feature that is not popularly used on phones, for the reason that I have enumerated, and that is the truth. Not being a fanboy at all, just being realistic.
you guys talk like video call is the only thing with this new os. who knows... maybe something huge is coming.
-drumroll- Introducing the Imirror, to be placed on the table in front of you so you can see your screen while looking into the camera.

Video calling has been around a long time, since the days when I had my clam-shell O2 phone back in 2003. It's not been widely accepted except by business... then along came Skype and a few devices which supported it along with laptops and Macs/PC's which used the copper at home...
4G bandwidth should be able to tackle the demand as it's rolled out around the world... So now's the time for growth in the mobile consumer market.
