great look and good features, however i doubt the expandability of the OSX phone. users love adding new softwares into the phone. we've got WM5, Palm, Symbian, and Linux, with fewer and fewer 3rd-party softwares.
Why are you so hyped about???? Its nothing we havent seen before... I mean Nokia N91-2 has 8 gb of memory, also has wi-fi, plus EDGE, plus 3G, plus 2mpx camera, the only thing that it is lacking is the touchscreen (which i really find annoying) and the sky-rocketed price. Nokias web browser is the best, and although i like the design a lot and i think Apple is a great company, it will be waaaaay too expensive for most people to buy. For that you can always buy a P990 stick a memory stick pro duo with 4gb in it and you'll be having the same functionality. Just my 2 cents.
First phone from Apple, think that the OS will have lots of instabilitys and errors.
Can´t wait for the next Nokia phones! lol
I think this phone is really great concerning the looks and operability, and you also have to aknowlege apple's genuinuity and creativity when it comes to the beautiful OSX.
But THIS is not the answer to our prayers. This is NORMAL! I expected a mobile phone or a PDA from apple to have everything on a high end PDA (like 3G, a video call cam ...) PLUS new signature technologies from apple! I really like the accelerometer on this fone and the proximity sensor and all that stuff, but that's it? no GPS? no TV? no new office software to go with the phone?
lots of questions to raise here, but still, I'm so buying one!
Whatever you can say for or against this phone, there is one BIG problem.
The touch screen will, no matter what people say, lead to a dirty screen and will require cleaning every now and then, not very nice.
For all the fans out there, wake up to the reality:
lol , don't kid yourselves . Windows Mobile has been doing this for years ... Why should Nokia worry
This phone is gonna set the standards soon nokia will follow.
This is the coolest mobile around nuttin cant top this *****
I am a bit dissapointed. Big storage does not compensate everything else...even BenQ-Siemens Black Box looked more promising...
True. the OS is unix base but no one has Utlized it like a Full OS not just a mobile like o5.
The broser is amazing. did you see what they did with it.
have a quick look. and let me know what you think.
I'd prefer to buy from a company with a range of products. For me HTC offer far better choice and I don't need to wait until autumn to buy one. Its also worth mentioning that spec of iPhone is acceptable to buyers ready to buy today. It will be interesting to see if the spec measures up later in the year.
Actually there is HTML browser in other smartphones also. (been for ages already)
There is phones with full linux based OS already (it is also UNIX based, like OSX)
someone please tell me what this phone has that the Eten glofish X500 doesn't? And the Glofish also has built in GPS!! Very dissapointing release from Apple, one for the fanboys only!!!
must see this before posting your thoughts. click link below.
First off i would like to say that i have never been an Apple fan by any means. I have read some of the postings here and i have to say that i think some of you have not seen this phone in action before you have putting your thoughts on here. i have just watch the Keynote.
Take a look for yourself! You cannot compare this to any other out there. The OS X is the full OS not a ms mobile 5, so you can get more powerful programs. by June when it comes out there will me alot of programs and widgets for download.
And the full internet brouser and not some crap wap or internet explorer (i have one), is what set it apart. The unit ships out in June in the US. If you goand watch this link to the introduction to the phone and still think that nokia can compete please let me know on the posting.
I have a HP smart phone ms windows 05 phone and i liked it but i have seen this in action so come june i will have this amazing phone.
Cool Phone, especially a lot of thought has gone into the user interface...and I want one.
But wait...the other mobile players will come up with something similar and as user-friendly, and less proprietary stuff I hope, as you know Apple may want you to use only their own stuff like quicktime, itunes songs playable only, etc
I recon this phone will be so unreliable, plus hard to fix, would rather stick to SE!
It seems that Apple was not able to be innovative this time. It is obvious that Apple sees that mp3 player mobile phones are going to kill iPod. Therefore they needed to go into the mobile phone business to stay in the music player business.
I would compare this phone to N91, because it has similar 4/8 GB internal memory.
Screen: N91 smaller
3G: Apple no, N91 yes
Touchsreen: Apple yes, N91 no
Buttons: Apple no, N91 yes
So where is the innovation? Ok, the touchscreen functions might be innovative, if they work well. However, I am sceptical about the screen and how can you operate it by only using one hand (e.g. writing SMS while driving car).
My point is, N91 is 2 years old!!! Apple's flagship mobile is compare able to 2 years old technology. And 2 years is a lifetime in mobile phones.
I just hope that the touchscreen innovations work. I would be nice to have a phone with bigger screens. Other makers could copy it and make a phone with more up to date features (better camera, GPS, 3G, mobile TV etc.).
About time somebody released a proper phone! This day and age demands more than just making calls, and this little gizmo will deliver big time!
