It is much cheaper to buy an iPod Touch for 150$ + a cheaper unlocked phone than to buy an iPhone3GS for "only 97$".

Now everyone can afford an iphone.
Buy one, and see how a phone should be supported with updates and free apps, unlike Nokia and its beta testing policy that ends after a few months when the next phone is released. The iphone is the best supported phone BAR NONE. I've been saying that for months now, and no-one has argued against it on here.
N97 owners must have been gnashing their teeth when the Mini was announced with all its fixes and a lens that couldnt be scratched by it's own cover.
Wow. People talk as if they've already seen the real new iPhone. You think June 7th is just gonna be another iPhone announcement... whoppie-doo. Uh, yeah. News flash to you guys. Apple is full of surprises. Just because there was an iPhone leak, doesn't mean it's the real deal. They could announce a waay more different phone than you could have expected. So just shut the hell up to all those haters who thinks they know everything.
It's not the new features, it's the ugliness of the new Iphone which will be the main factor and possibly a deal breaker for me.
I still hope the new 'leaked' model was fake and it's not the new design.
I can't believe they would do away with the sleek rounded edges and chrome bezel thanks to which the current models fits nicely in one's hand and instead replace it with those nasty sharp edges. Pure ugliness.

Anonymous, 25 May 2010i love the fact that everyone hates the New iPhoneOnly a few Apple haters hate the iPhone and the new iPhone. How can people hate a phone that 1) hasnt been released 2) No one has any conclusive idea exactly what specs it has 3) dont know what it REALLY looks like.
My guess is that the new iPhone will be so good that Apple will continue to dominate.
All this talk about the N8. The phone looks good on paper but lets see how good it actually is when it gets released. My assumption is that it will be the usual let down for Nokia ie Symbian!!!! So it will be mainly for the non App minded group.
The iPhone is brilliant and well worth the money, even if it is a little expensive. People who say other phones are better have never used the iPhone. I have the iPhone and its brilliant!
And yes folks, $99 is for when you take out a 2 year AT&T contract, not for the phone on its own.
i love the fact that everyone hates the New iPhone

its confusing as here in aus this thing is insanely expensive
In this post it states we know pretty much what the iphone has to offer. Ive got to disagree with this, what is known is very little as far as i can see, can anyone shed any confirmed specs?!
i m tired by apple now.. wont be upgrading to 4g.. didnt really like design.. probably its android froyo or s^3 next..
Apple have never realised people buy mobiles mainly for Talking an Texting an o.k my be the Internet but ever since the iPhone as been released the Cost of the iPhone,is way to Expensive,o.k the phone might look o.k,but Apple have just been ripping people off,an now the N8 with better features an alot cheaper they will face some competition an this 4g version might not be such a good seller
