Excuse me, all those technology has already beens implemented on many other phones an it is apple that is copying it. The physical design for the Iphone HD has already been shown to be exactly like (Except a little taller) the Iphone 3GS. It will probably also have a "copied" secondary camera. There is nothing new.
Another thing, being cheap is not a bad thing. A very large majority of the world is poor and thus what Nokia provides at such a low cost is a blessing.
POOR iphone users I really feel pity for you. Multitasking!! are you kidding me, this feature is a must in all smartphones since more than five years ago. And now its a new feature in the icrap. Moreover, it will be available in summer. You are so pathetic, For real.
BTW the best multitasking is in palm pre NO ONE can reach to that level and NO ONE can deny that. nuff said
So, this new update is apple simply making official what you can already do on jailbroken devices.. lol...

This is just about the 4.0 os. The next gen iphone will offer awesome hardware features like an A4 chip, an amoled screen with the highest resolution, a 5 megapixel camera, a front camera, and a new design that will again be copied by the rest :)
And when the next gen iphone comes out, I'm sure you will hate it even more, because you probably again won't be able to afford it and will again post comments against it so you could release your bitterness and anger, lol.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2010Well I am not one of those iphone users who would go to Nokia articles and make nasty comments... moreAS i have said before, what you gave as iphone advantages are opinions and lies, no real features.
-"Most expensive phones are locked under contract." -Any Nokia Symbian phone can be brought unlocked contract free for much cheaper than an unlocked Iphone.
-"You Nokia may have better external speakers, but realistically, music reproduction using headphones is what's more important on phones" -Read some reviews, the Nokia 5800 produces headphone music quality that matches the Ipod(which I have to add is better than the Iphone).
- "The iphone through itunes offers high quality videos"- Yes but thats your only option, whereas Nokia can play videos from anywhere, and any quality in Widescreen. Most Movies from Internet are in Divx format and you need to convert them to play on the Iphone. You can also convert and play movies form DVDs easily with a Nokia.
- "The iphone's walled approach on apps, gives users more protection and better customer support from Apple." -Whats the worst that can happen to your phone from an unsafe app. A hard reset will fix everything. (Sorry I forgot, Nokias don't burst into flames when they are too hot, unlike Iphones). Nokia's security is good enough to protect you personal info so you don't have to worry about that and their customer support is not bad at all.
-"Iphone's implementation of multitasking is more efficient and effective"- Having lower Ram and Processoer speeds, Symbain's do true multitasking with no lagging (as long as the firmware is up to date) at all and they still have a longer battery life than an Iphone.
-"Iphone's camera is decent and adequate for its purpose. But it will just get better." -Thats just your opinion, much cheaper Nokias have better cameras and video (plus Flash). Even the 3.2 MP camera of a 5800 is batter than that of the Iphone plus it has a flash.
- Do you know why apple does not allow Flash on web and Java on the phone, its not remain integrate or fast. Its because otherwise you can play games and run apps in Java and Flash which will bring down their app store sales, which is currently you only option for apps and games.
Apple is late with the multitasking and in my opinion they dindn't catch up so far. It's multitasking dosn't even come close to Web OS or Android multitasking. The hardware is medicore too. If the next gen. iPhone will not birn Super AMOLED display and 5MP camera they will loose their advantage. Android has already closed the gap...

May I just remind you, that even before multitasking was introduced on phones, Apple already implemented it in their computers. So don't make it seem like Apple does not know this technology. They just want it to work better than the rest, just like what they did with copy and paste, zooming, app store, touchscreen, web browsing, gaming, social network, etc.
Come on people. Give credit where its due. Apple pushed all the others to up their ante. Without the iphone, all of us would be stuck with laggy, sluggish devices with small screens and low quality plastic materials.
oh here we go iphone fever again :P now we are going to hear o2 stores telling there customers a new iphone is on its way, and the typical sheep are going to come in and ask for one of those ipd phone things. they are a good phone but everyone has 1 ??? and now they are letting ads go onto the phones. what is it coming to. have apple not made enough money now they are cahrging for ads. OMG whats it coming to.
Dd, 09 Apr 2010Well, this is all apple can offer now it is time for nokia show off it s3 and meego phone c... moreNokia has been trying to show off after their N95 has lost its glory. Unfortunately, Nokia touchscreen devices has been nothing more than devices to settle with if you cannot afford the iphone and its services, or if you are from a country that does not support the iphone's integration of services.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2010Commenting here from my N97. browser opened in one, mail client in other, music player, few ga... moreI can also use my iphone to post a comment on here with its music player on. But unlike you, I am not impractical to open and run games applications in the background when I cannot play games and post a comment at the same time, can you? The current iphone lets you go back to your game app and continue where you left off. That approach is even better with iphone 4.0 where it's quicker to go back to your game.
So iPhone users waited 3 years to get wallpapers ? :) This shows the speed at which people develop new things at Apple...this is really a snail's pace. Android new features come so fast that iPhone 4.0 will be obsolete at launch (in fact, it already is !). Giving up my iPhone 3GS for a Nexus One was one of the best thing I could do. I really wished Apple would bring something interesting to iPhone 4.0, but it didn't...
Stop comparing n97 with iphone 3gs, you guys and glas should use the latest nokia flagship n900
iphone 4.0 with jailbreak sounds good.
to all the people or haters i should say. go buy and iphone and then compare it to anything u had before and u will see the illuminati way.
Jobs said, "we weren't the first to this party, but we're gonna be the best. Just like cut and paste."
What party? Go retire old man :)) Multitasking is a standard feature;)
Do you want me to mention cut and paste? =))))
You weren't the first? You certainly were the LAST since multitasking is 17-year old technology. Ya' know what they say, better later than never =))))
Anyway, dear apple, congratulations for your FIRST smartphone!
Well, this is all apple can offer
now it is time for nokia show off it s3 and meego phone coming months.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2010Every time an Article appears about Symbian or Nokia, these Iphone buddies flood it with hate ... moreWell I am not one of those iphone users who would go to Nokia articles and make nasty comments. And based on what I've read, Nokia users most of the time start the argument by mentioning the iphone. Iphone users would just then reply in defense. Wow, your Nokia device does not lag or crash. That's amazing. Well not all of us have the same experience as you with our Nokia devices before we switched to the iphone. As for the advantages that you have brought up. Here's my response to them.
Most expensive phones are locked under contract. The dual sim will not really work well with those phones unless you tamper with it and lose your warranty.
You Nokia may have better external speakers, but realistically, music reproduction using headphones is what's more important on phones, and the iphone has the best music reproduction.
The iphone through itunes offers high quality videos and has a powerful graphics chip. Not having divx support is not a big loss.
The next iphone will have better resolution, and current resolution on the iphone is good as well.
The iphone's walled approach on apps, gives users more protection and better customer support from Apple.
Iphone's implementation of multitasking is more efficient and effective. Cutting down on battery consumption and delivering uncompromising performance.
Iphone's camera is decent and adequate for its purpose. But it will just get better.
Watch the keynote and learn just how much better Apple implements and integrates all services into the iphone.
message to HD
the update is free you c o c k!!
coming from someone that works in a phone shop and owns an iphone and an n97 i can tell you that altho nokias do have multitasking and other features that the iphone doesnt i still prefer the iphone.
this is mainly due to user experience. i find the iphone more fun and easy to use. fore instance web browsing is easier on the iphone.

Let's not forget that their computers have been doing multitasking even before any smartphone maker released their first multitasking phone, so it's not like Apple doesn't know how it should be implemented. But you see, a phone is not as big as a computer's hardware, and hardware does play a major role in a phone's performance. If Apple didn't care about its UI, they could've included this multitasking in their first iphone. But then they didn't want the iphone to lose its slim waistline, but now with improved hardware technology, they can be able to add more features and keep the iphone's size slim.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2010what are you talking about. Nokia offers free voice-guides for several of their newer phones,... moreSomeone was asking if the iphone offers some specific apps, and I was simply replying. The iphone has free voice guided apps for maps as well, so we do get it. HTML5 is gaining more popularity sooner than you think. Thanks to Apple. I know what multitasking is, and the iphone does have it in their current model, and they even improved it in 4.0. Apple took the time to implement multitasking that is conscious of battery life and performance. Does your current phone consider those two important factors?
