here is the good news........ as the experts suggest that the manufacturing cost of the phone is around $249 and it is expecting 50% margin of profit from the phone which is too high ; there is a forecast that the price of the iphone would be brought down to $350 after couple of months of launch i.e. june.... I think this should work for some apple folks like me......... correct me if I'm wrong. well the other reason for lowering the price would be the competetion from LG, samsung and sony tooo. they are comming up with some similiar phones......... so did apple make a mistake by bragging about their phone 5 months before actual launch ....... because 5 months is more than enough to produce a phone of similiar capacity .......
I saw this phone a few days ago on the apple store i think its the best device ive ever seen. its amazing.
nice if u can call it that way...ugly?!no way...the best?!no...but one of them though
Really, It is the best phone ready if add more 3G and 16M colors display. But apple never come out any cell phone before. So what the problem will happen with this one.
i wanna know weather appel mobile phones would support the black berry where we have your compititor microsoft exchange server. so i would like to have used black berry service on the mobile phone of appel. So is appel supporting or not please advise.
The iPhone costs Apple only $250 for the 4GB phone and $280 for the 8GB version to manufacture according to some reports.
And though Apple has to spend on R&D and marketing and other business costs but for the most part, those costs would have been incurred anyway. I'll bet that Apple spent relatively little to put the iPhone together since it really didnt develop any new technology here.
THE BUZZ WAS SO GREAT, THAT APPLE PROBABLY DIDNT NEED TO SPEND A DIME ON MARKETING.
Lastly, now that we know how much the phone costs, it raises new questions...why didnt Apple create just one version of the phone (ie 8 Gigs) and why didnt it improve some of the specs that people are complaining about, like the camera or lack of 3G or lack of GPS (these chipsets cost $5).
Seems to me like Apple chose profit over their supposed desire and ability to serve the customer.
LG and Apple go head to head with the iPhone and the KE850 Prada in the fashion phone category. Let's see if other manufacturers copy this (basically cool phone + cool ui) or just push for more complex features and integration.
First of all Aplle... NO... And why the h..ll they allways put the friking "i" on theyr ewery product. What next "i" game pod? This is beeing said as a rumour... IŽll Pray not!
One thing i liked on the i phone. No buttons...COOL! so sci fi.
i this i that look wer so selfish
Wow, people are just forgetting that you can't have your cake and eat it to. There is no phone ever made on the market today that dose EVERYTHING so people are just always comparing a phone to something else. With the wifi ability the internet will be awesome and remember the phone is the offspring of the ipod in a way and is designed for great multimedia like most apple products so just wait till what the next phone they launch has to offer and people need to stop being so negative.
as for the ouh screen prob they give you a touch pen to solve that and the nokia lover get a life
the n70 or any other nokia for that matter cant even touch the tech thats going to be avabile in this
The only (and BIGGEST) problem with this phone is the touchscreen.
Think about it.
Do you realize how often the screen will get dirty and smodgy due to dirty fingers.
If you don't mind cleaning the screen constantly then you might not be bothered.
But I still prefer old fashioned buttons which leave the screen nice and clean (or at least cleaner).
nokia n95 is way way better..
n95 has a 5 megapixel camera and vga recording with 30 fps. It has an integrated gps receiver, browsing on it is also very well made. its not as heavy as iphone (120g). and ofc it has hsdpa 3g, A2DP support and son on...
i just don't get it why ppl are so impressed about this iphone besides its "inovative design"...(look at LG prada)
