It's an iPhone, they said it was "only 8 gb" because the Ipod video has a minimum of 20gb. Think, people!
$499 and $599? that's alot to offer when its already in a 2-year contract.
I wonder how much it is without contract. -_-
95% of the worlds computers run MS OS, if innovation doesnt sell then its pointless, apple didnt follow up with the newton and cant claim that the success of PIM devices during the last 10 years was because of them.Vista looks like tiger OS, so what Apple stole the GUI concept from Xerox and then MS copied it as well. Its called good business and "innovation" is a term used to market products. If the copying of concepts was that bad there would be ten times more lawsuits then there are allready. So why dont we just call it sharing. If Apple can make a technology be economicaly viable, then great for them and hopefully great for the consumer.
Just two things I wish they will consider with next generation:
Solid State Drive of at least 32gb, considering the price will drop in the meantime
HSDPA, instead of slow EDGE!
Announce their take on SSD: just $169 for the 16GB. 32GB and 64GB versions will be available by the end of 2006. This is a lot cheaper that the SanDisk, hopefully we will see them in the next generation of iPods, iPhone, as well as the OQO and Sony UX ultra portable computers.
THe fact is, the IPOD dropped from 30gb to 8gb, this is why so many users are not happy.
8gb is plenty, but this is the IPOD, and users are used to 30-80GB!
The above model is a U.S only spec with network locking to Cingular (and AT&T). Europe and Asia are rumoured to have a different model which will include 3G and HSDPA support. By the time its get released for these markets, it will have to support 3G to gain any sales.
this is an all-in-one device that does everything but nothing is done as well as it should be
Out of date, accept in OS X, Need Better camera and 3G, come on Apple!!!!
lol, wtf is "only 8GB of memory"... dude even microSD and miniSD card slots hold max up to 4 GB at the moment
I think some of you should get a life because Microsoft and Apple are good in their own rights. And Vista although lots of its ideas came from OSX it will be Microsofts best OS ever. And like I said the default OS for 95 percent of all computers users is Windows. So you can see who clearly wins. Apple are good for multimedia and for secruity, but Windows is catching up. So you can bag each other all you want, but really it comes down to what you personally perfer, for me its Windows just because I've grown up with it in a sense.
...only 8GB of memory, wtf?, is there any mobile that has that much memory on it?, also if there is, do they compare to the iPhones sleek size?....I doubt it
It is true that Apple steals alot of its products from ideas from other companies but its nothing compared to what Microsoft did to Apple. Many years ago it signed a contract with Apple allowing them to use anything they wanted from Apples current OSX. But when Microsoft wanted to make a new OS Apple said they couldn't use anymore ideas from their OSX, so Microsoft took them to court and one so they have the right to use almost any idea they want (as long as they call it something else).
by the time this phone comes out everything is old. it is basically a touchscreen Nseries with the apple branding. In a word this phone is Weak. So many people will have this phone that it will loss its prestigiousness. it isn't that great of a phone but good design. that's it and nothing more.
hahaahaha some more laughter from me...
first... we have the apple newton... so we created PIM devices first? Apple has a working model showing the world how it should work... do you really think all these are just 1 month of work? that must be kidding!
OH! BTW... don't we all know who is the one that created a GUI OS?
let us not guess which come first.... cause nothing is unique these days
OS X 10.4.8 (Tiger), came out over a year ago, and funny enough....Windows vista looks exactly like OS X 10.4.8, and its not even released yet.....whos the innovative company and whos the behind lack of ideas copycat?
In a few months you will be seeing many of these around, the best selling innovative mobile ever when it reaches world markets
Quote "I think your just in denile about apple's innovation compared to that of microsoft".
You can't really say this because when Apple were bringing out Ipod Microsoft was going along a completely different path, that of the Xbox. Now Microsoft are bringing out the Zoon.
Anyway the default OS for 95 percent of all computers users is Windows, know thats what you call innovation.
On the other hand I really like the new iPhone, but next time look at the facts.
apple just waits for other companies to come out with new ideas and than steal them and call them innovative. like the ipod. millions of mp3 players before. iTV. not even out yet and similar products have been out for over 4 years now. my TV has the technology built in. They just constantly steal ideas. I would never support a company like them. The only reason they went big is because they flooded the market with advertising.
DUDE!!! i love apple products and anything with a touch screen and up to 6GB of memory just turns me on. This phone is going to suppase the popularity of the razer and i am going to be first in line to buy it as soon as it is authorised. Does anyone know when that is going to be?
