that same year samsung relased their instinct 3.5g on sprint network with video recording, & the fastest data service on a mobile device.
iphone 3g was relased in 2008.
XXX, 24 May 2010it's funny how you say android will copy the front facing camera .
when Apple copy that same ... moreSuch is the 2nd time I hear comments about phones in 1995 had front facing came from NSE brands.
Can you recall exactly which model? According to GSM Arena, the first SE phone with (add on) cam was T68i, which was released in 2002.
Motorola already offered video call capable phones in 2005 with A925/A835, the latter with front facing cam. At the same time, the almighty brand was only able to make phone with front cam on its 6630...which only worked at HOME with the "add-on cradle".
I'm still waiting for your answer regarding which phone in "1995" supported front facing cam...

The almighty brand, being so almighty in terms of tech in the industry, didn't know how to make a 3G touchscreen device until AFTER iphone 3G was released? LOL....

I recall when Motorola released A835 with front cam (or rotary cam on A925 which allowed video call), the almighty brand was still STRUGGLING with the tech by having a CRADLE on its 6630.

My wife didn't get iphone 3G 16GB because she really needed 16GB, rather she chose 16GB simply for the fact it came in white color.
Stephane, 24 May 2010I the past I'd Philips, Nokia and now SonyEricsson(Satio) devices. Never iPhone because don't ... moreDon't be too impatient, the N8 is coming out just around the corner. Or maybe do buy an iphone, so you can try it yourself and get first hand disappointment. But it's a shame you spending all that money on crappy device.
Anonymous, 24 May 2010The display is the thing you look at the most.
The UI is the thing you use the most.Your premise is faulty. It's like saying:
"Buy this car, because it has a shiny green-tinted windshield and nice leather on the steering wheel. After all, the windshield is what you look at the most. And the steering wheel is what you use the most."
But you are glossing over the fact that this new car has a crappy engine that is barely better than a Yugo. And bad handling, to boot.
I would rather get me a muscle car without all the trippings but with an engine and handling that can do the trick.
Anonymous, 25 May 2010Correction: iphone 3gs isn't a smartphone. it's just a phone.My turn to add some flames. Lol.
It is just a phone, infact a frame. It's screen is step back into past by not letting users write because it is not accurate. Because it can't detect an accurate press it can be driven easily. An idean touch-system should have best of both worlds.
Yes people still do write things over touchscreens. Instead of using stylus I can simply use fingertip to write numbers or small words instead of bringing keyboard over. Pretty easy and I have seen many others do the same so it is not just about me if you are planning to say this.
[deleted post]Correction: iphone 3gs isn't a smartphone. it's just a phone.
Why do I get the feeling that this is just one of those iPhone look-a-likes that the japanese whip up?? "No photo's from the back" Sounds to me like there'll be a plum on the back instead of an Apple! LMAO!
Black or White, it's still well behind the competition in features/capability - I've lost all interest in this device.
[deleted post]didn't apple copy everything from all the technology companies.
what did apple invented nothing, no not even their touch screen, that's fingerworks technology, s60 webkit is nokia technology, front facing camera is sony & nokia technology .
Normally i like the white on some devices like i think the white psp looks better than the black and the white 3gs looks better than the black but i dont like the look of this one 0.o i prefer black.
i still think the new iphone looks ugly.
IMO the front of the phone should remain black
if its white its makes the screen look smaller and less sleek
and flowing then the black front
