great phone! only entertainment. Why don't you think about Microsoft phones, its give you all___
If the actual price is $500 and $600, i am sure Nokia, Sony, iMate... all companies will close down in Dubai. All the best!
Regarding Cisco suing for TM infringment - they (cisco) appear to be in a difficult possition regarding this and it is unlikely to have any impact on the iphone. Its all there - do a google search and dispell the rumours for yourself.
nice phone but every one has got one now, my mate imports them and has been doing since sept, about time a new one comes out, also the music tracks are limited to 1 min so you cant put on full songs, i like men but i am not g@y
The apple iPhone is a really great fone just waiting 4 microsoft 2 hev 1 compete with apple bcause i'd like to see wat these 2 companies can do ~ maybe 2morrow microsoft will hav a .......... dont really know ....~ so well see
you know wut gets me, i swear ive seen similar stuff when i went to japan last year, and they had 3G almost 5 years ago, i hear now they are getting 4G soon. north american market techonology on this stuff is so slow, the only upside we got is blackberry, and might I add its canadian
the 1st iphone is indeed "something else" the design concept is super, a phone with class definitely it will make success on the market though its not a 3G technology.
There are actually other HSDPA phones already out, besides the N95. Samsung launched the first one in September of 2006. And by ITU definitions, HSDPA can actually still be considered a 3G technology. Either way, we still use "3G/HSDPA" to refer to the higher-bandwidth bearers, in the same way we use "GPRS/EDGE" without implying that GPRS and EDGE are the same thing.
Funny that the iPhone is obviously designed to be a multimedia device -- music (I'm guessing there should be a way to download to the iPhone directly from iTunes), internet browsing, even Google maps -- but the radio bearers (GPRS/EDGE) are slow. I'm not sure how smooth the multimedia experience will be with the lower bandwidth.
where are the keys for this, is this all touch screen? this is a waste of money, it is only tops 8gb for music photos and a bunch of other things it comes with, not enough memory
Funny to see how people here confuse 3G with HSDPA. Kids, read some more because you are misinformed. At the moment, the only HSDPA phone that will hit the market any time soon is N95. 3G is one thing and HSDPA (3,5G) is something else.
Both LG and CISCO to sue Apple for theft :P.
the iphone its really gud looking but the prb is as a genration 2007 MAC have to more disadvantage base on another brand of the phone is not 3G other wise its more than frm 2 megha pixel
yeh, lets all slag it off before we see it, well done expert (and the rest) - certainly a bit of ground breaking insight from you. I see you have broken the mould from the majority of other forums and decided to moan with no basis - how original.
its a very good device from d looks and functions. adequate memory. the release dates are too far though. the suspense is gonna kill. But it was a nice move by Apple. wonder what microsoft's response will be.
I was waiting for a new ipod,but i got a phone free with itthatz cool...cheerup apple,
and microsoft why r u waiting announce a "MicroPhone" or somthing like "zPhone" hheeeee.....
Nice to see a company taking a different route with a a mobile media device rather than the same old stuff. Whether it works as well as a 'normal' phone in the real world remains to be seen, the touch screen is bound to have some disadvantages and when it is finally released the 2 meg' camera will be rather under spec I imagine. However, this is the first phone I have really wanted in ages; gadget fever!!!!
For all the people who are saying this phone is a waste because it doesn't have 3G, I just found this from David Pogue of the New York Times, who was at the MacWorld Expo and got to play with the phone and interview Steve Jobs. He has posted a list of questions he's been receiving via email and that he's either answering himself based on his handling of the phone or fielding back to Apple for answers. As I said in a previous post, the quadband network it's being released with is more suitable to North America and I speculated that 3G would be available in Europe and Asia pending release in those markets. While this doesn't say that specifically, it does say this:
Q: “No 3G is almost a deal breaker. EDGE is horrible for a device this advanced…how did that get overlooked?”
A: It wasn’t overlooked. 3G (HSDPA) is available only in a few cities [in the US]. Apple says that when it’s more prevalent, the company will upgrade the iPhone.
