It's just that the iphone has a different view of how they prioritize which features should be included first. The iphone is not the only one who provides firmware updates, although I say that Apple is the best when it comes to delivering updates to its users conveniently and seamlessly. Your jealousy and bitterness is making you dumb =)
daret, 18 Mar 2009pay attention first before you respond. first of there is no nokia touchscreen here in the sta... moreBased on reviews and on videos on YouTube. It shows that the N97's touchscreen is not at par with the iphone's. Even the reviewers attested to that and mentioned that it is not as fluid and responsive as the iphone's screen. Also, it uses resistive technology, not capacitive. Capacitive is the more responsive. It is also newer technology for touchscreen. So there. The iphone can survive without itunes, but for integration of services, itunes becomes an integral player, and there is nothing wrong with that. As for the missing features, all phones have missing features, not just the iphone. It was only a matter of time until they incorporated those missing features in, and they did, and we don't have to buy a new device either. As for the App Store, developers need to get paid for their labor. It's as simple as that. You are obviously not a developer, but a cheap consumer who wants to get every app for free or go for pirated stuff, ewww. The iphone already has features that other phones do not have, and now with the missing features added on, it's even better, and you're just too jealous and bitter to accept that =)

That explains why some devices perform or render pages better than the others. Iphone does multi-task. You can web surf and listen to music at the same time. So it can. The iphone can expand its multi tasking capabilities as well, but if you listened to what they said on their keynote, it's impratical because it would drain the battery quick, so they used a different approach to this and utilized push notification instead, which does the same thing w/out compromising batt life.

Nokia and Samsung has nothing on the iphone. User experience is not as topnotch as the iphone's. Nokia and Samsung has been releasing phones with the same old features all the time, so what's your complain about the iphone releasing a new phone with similar features as the older one? LOL. You're not making sense. Jealous? Envious? Bitter perhaps that the iphone has finally added on the missing features that you guys have been using to attack the iphone with? LOL.

Apple has changed the trends in mobile industry. Are you blind? Can't you see all of those iphone copycats? LOL. They're even copying itunes and the app store, lol. How can you say that the iphone is far behind when it's the best performing phone out there. Lacks? There are 100 added features on 3.0 OS, and only a few of them were revealed, how do you know exactly what is lacking? Why? Is there a phone out there that has every possible feature imaginable? It does give you full internet experience minus the flash for practical reasons. A lot of phones do not have flash support either, so please. Blackberry Storm does not even have wifi. Sorry, but Nokia, SE and Samsung does not have smooth UI's. They also do not have over 25,000 apps, they also do not have itunes, and they also do not offer wide integration of services, but hey, get the phone that works for you best =)

Apple isn't a phone company per se. I mean they make the phone..but what they have done with the services is pretty darn smart. It would be hard for Nokia Ovi to simulate what apple did with it's app store...and that my friends is where the bigger pie is going to be in the future...
The phone is OK. I am not a big fan of the phone...but for 1st timer on touchscreen..it did pretty good and created a standard. Most new touchscreen phone are considered as iPhone killer...and then they vanish somewhere. I am waiting for a phone where people would say...that's the iPhone killer both categories...Phone and service..If you look in the details of the sales number, you would notice that the 80% sales of iPhone has been from North America market..that tells me that the phone is a big hit in NA market where typically high-end phones from Nokia, HTC Samsung phones have trouble negotiating deals with the carriers.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2009Iphone was named Gadget of the Year, both by Time and Stuff Magazine. That was before the 3.0 ... morePlease don't tell me u r actually reffering to Stuff Magazine who has ladies in bikins and such when u go on to their website. Why don't u get your stats about football players from Football Manager 2009 on your PC while ur at it. Tamaguchi and that little cute mechanical bear was also "gadget" of year i Stuff Magazine, and what do Times know about Mobile Phones, i read that article Times and it's about the most sought after "hype" or "gadget" in America that year It was not about how good the Iphone was or what it can do, it was about the "product", cause u do know Times is a financial and political magazine, right? Experts and High Profile Reviews all see the Iphone as a gadget, not a proper device for the modern mobile industry. Any review you will see iphone is always reviewd seperately as a gadget, not with other real multimedia and office phones. Apple tried to enter their Iphone to the Global Mobile Awards but were not permitted cause it had a price class of a high end phone, but the software and build quality (hardness) of a low range phone, so they could not fit in to any category. They actually offered Apple to enter the Iphone in the awards anyway but as a low end device as long as the subsided price would be incognito. The Iphone is a fun piece of gadget, as long as u see it as a gadget, don't expect too much, and not see it as a phone. That's why all experts and reviews call it a Gadget, and not a complete mobile device.
its apple's first phone and they don't rush things they already had perfected their hardware but for their software their just starting but from time to time they will also perfect their OS but i hope i doesn't take forever to wait. iphone change how user interact with their mobile phones and they perfected or almost perfected it? using our own body part that we used everday of our lives our fingers. i hope one day nokia & apple would merge and will make a evolutionary phone hehehe...

N95 has 2 ARM11 CPUs
itouch runs at 400Mhz
N96 has dual ARM9
so why can't iphone multitask
cause apple Mobile OS is incapable of doing cause it's Unix based
and Nokia's S60 is Ubuntu
And OSx are both Linux based phones
but Ubuntu is superiour to Unix cause Unix is discontinued XD
so they are going backwards apple that is
They took 2 years to make drivers for an Old OS that No One can use same with there OSx 10 and all the other versions
Very sad company

Iphone is just a joke. Apple as a whole can't compare to nokia capability or even samsung, lg and SE. Apple has hypnotized their customers over time when their sale starts falling down then they release a newer version with nearly nothing new features. Come on wake up kid. Grow up and be guidied by ur daddy ...
I see apple fanboys had spent lot of money on crappy iphone so they somehow want to show that iphone is best device. But u fuls have already fallen in the trap created by apple.

iphone uses software
i congratulate apple on finally giving the features that hv been present on other phones for 2+ yrs to iphone (now that is staying ahead of the game lol).
when are they actually gna improve the hardware and not just the software cos the iphone is really all about software. i mean add a better cam (more settings would be nice and a flash), maybe a physical keyboard, a front facing cam which can be used for video calling and like a web cam. also the resolution could be increased. the 3" screen on xperia has 800x480. the processor shud be replaced to a faster one. the ipod touch for example has a faster processor. also give the iphone more memory say 32gb or let it be expandable by card slots. these r things apple cud achieve. r they gna do it? dont think so.
