Last I checked 1 in 3 people is not everyone so you basically just proved Deep space bar's point no?
Awesome. I can't wait for the new iphone to come out. It's going to be another bestseller. Exciting.
Is GSM Arena blocking links to websites that have false anti apple propoganda? Well done if true.
Anonymous, 06 May 2010what a joke??? n8 camera beats dw iphone in all aspects!!! pls wake upN8 beat the iphone camera but the OS from nokia (symbian) is way out of order...so slow, no apps and games...YES you have the best camera phone but you can't use it properly!
Nothing special there... most phones out at the moment has the tech. iPhone users are not getting their moneys worth. Plus, by the time this phone is released, better phones will be out i.e HTC evo.
[deleted post]iPhone is not for everyone?! Everyine seems to have an iPhone. Go to London, 1 in 3 people have an iPhone, the other is blackberry, then everything else. So to say iPhone is not for everyone, tell all the "sheep" that have it.

80 things you don`t know about iPhone
Who cares about who makes the phone...Every cell phone made is for a specific market...The iphone is for everyone. Nokia N8 is for somebody that want to take good pictures and videos but with a slow symbian OS, no apps and no games!

Deep space bar, 06 May 2010Samsung is the world leader in hdtv
And i know nokia worked with them with the omnia HD and ... moreWhat are you talking about?
Nokia never worked with Samsung on The Omnia's HD recording, stop lying.
And Samsung makes terrible interfaces, almost useless.
It's funny how Apple fans always think that if you don't like the iPhone product you are either poor or have never used a iPhone.
Back in august i won a unlocked iPhone 3GS on a call in morning radio show (actually i was going for the PS3 prize for my lttile brother), but anyhow i won that phone.
I hade it for 2 weeks, felt like strangeling iTunes to death (most irritating software ever), not only the synch box issues, but the whole deauthorisation nonsense if you use another PC or have to reinstall software/OS and the whole cleaning your iPhone clean of all content etc. Don't know if they have changed it thou.
More issues were battery dying i record time when making phone calls or if you have brightness turned up. As soon an started filling up the memory with stuff it became slower and slower between menus, to the point of 3-5 sec whitescreens.
Then on to the movie clips, forget DivX/Xvid/Avi, it took virtyally no video codecs whatsoever. I hade to dig up this french program called Handbrake to convert videos to low resolutions H264 container/mp4 and played them very badly with massive defragmentation and artifacting.
When i tried webbrowsing and wathing videos/news/sports online most videos online was black screen die to the fact that 90% of intervet is flashbased. I can'r be bothered being on youtube all the time to wath videos, i have other things in life i need to live-update and watch.
Now on to the screen auto-rotate issues. One in iPhones iPod player the screen will rotate to the album flow version if it tilts in your hand or pocket, all good if you want it that way, but it gets stuck and won't tilt back very easily, most of the time you get frustrated trying to tilt it back to normal play/pause/skip menu that you have to exit iPod app and restart it so get back to.
I had loads of isses etc etc but i won't write about it here, it will take up a whole page. I gave the iPhone to my little sister and everything on that phone is done by me like i think i have written before, from hunting for apps at Appstore, Ice, Cydia and A--llo(which is closed down now), j-breaking, updating etc etc.
So don't give me that nonsense about not ever have used a iPhone, i did and i am not impressed at all.
With that said i wasn't inpressed with Nokia flagship N97 either which i had an sold. Symbian is far from ready for touchscreen, and N97 proved it. N97 has so many issues i don't know where to start, horrible phone.
They gave me a Nokia N900 from work and it's probably the piece of handheld fluent technology i have ever used. It eats everything you throw at it. N900 is as close as you get to a laptop without being a actual laptop. How the same company can make both N97 and N900 is a mystery. N900 is a technological piece of art and N97 is a crippled lunatic, seriously, iPhone is better than N97.
And now to the issue of Apple fans thinking that people who don't like iPhone are poor people who can't afford one. Are you saying 98% of Europe are poor? There are more poverty and ghettos in US then there will ever be in Europe.
I live in Sweden with one of the highest standards of living in the world with virtually no poverty (maybe the drugabusers) and only middleclass upwards and we are certainly not poor. I can buy 3 iPhones a month if really really really wanted to, but bottom line is i don't like iPhone cause i think it a overrated mediocre piece of iTap tehcnology (except for the OS speed) and i wouldn't use one even if some walked up an gave it to me, same goes for Nokia N97.
