let get this straight. iPHONE is getting mms and video recording in 2009? I mean here we have phones from all parts of the world with mms and video recording but apple is bringing it now? You must be joking right apple? That must be the joke of the year. I used ipod touch and iphone but man iphone sucks. It has more limitations than a rock. What a waste of money....
Mr. V, 09 Apr 2009why get a iphone where a new one is out every few months? there are so many iphone killers out... moreI tried to set up a new gmail account for my friend on her Blackberry Storm, the gmail site said you had to use a PC to create it.
I used my iPhone, no problems, went back to the storm, entered the new gmail address and password and she could start using it.
So the Storm can't do everything the iPhone can do.
why get a iphone where a new one is out every few months? there are so many iphone killers out there and so many due out for example
all three of them phones are great, plus have ahd the same facillities as the iphone for ages......break the mold dont be a sheep
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009iphone = ipod
what can you say to defend that?
end of storyThe funny thing is..
If Iphone = Ipod then N whatever = Phone
Just phone. Why? because its not going to be better than real GPS devices. It doesn't play music better than the Ipod. It doesn't take pictures as good as a digital camera and has that god awful 2.4" to 2.6" standard screen size. The N95 8GB is however a class act. If anyone wants a N series. Forget about all the latest phones. Get the N95 8GB. It should be decently priced an an exceptional phone.
Anyway back to N whatever. Since it doesn't do anything better then its simply a phone. If Iphone = Ipod, then at least the Iphone in addition to taking calls and messaging, is one hell of a music player.
Again on the record. I'm not an Iphone owner nor do I like the Iphone nor will I get an Iphone. But I acknowledge its strengths. I just can't stand people who don't acknowledge the goods. And, most of the Nokia fanboys most likely haven't used a touchscreen phone. I'm very certain about it. Otherwise you would agree IPhone does have its strengths. How do I know? I'm a Win Mo user.
Sigh. IPhone is a good phone. Its not the most 'gadgety' phone but where it does excel it really does excel. The Nokia 5800 would not have existed if it wasn't because of the IPhone. Nokia can say it is not competing with Iphone, but like clamshell phones, it needed a jolt to get Nokia to act. And out of the blue suddenly touchscreen is a big thing. And for goodness sake, there's no such thing as apples and oranges in high end phone comparisons. Its fair game for all top of the line phones. The best Samsung phone is comparable to the best Apple phone which is comparable to the best Nokia phone. If its always apples and orranges, then what is there left to compare? Oh spec wise different. Cannot comapre. Oh screen size different cannot compare. Oh screen resolution different cannot comapre. What? BTW, I don't own an IPhone and don't like the IPhone. I'm waiting for WM6.5. But you've got to give credit where its due. Period.
Everything is International, i don't care what country the phone come from, as long as the company is good to it's users and listen to their concerns, which Apple doesn't. So what i a Taiwanese company has the patent on the multitouch? Nokia uses large part of it's a Internet browser from Apple etc. Nokia or Ericsson brings in parts from all over the world. I don't think alot of people know that the iPhone was designed by BenQ and sold to Apple, the iPhone interface, touchscreen and OS is developed and made by Toshiba etc. I am not a fanboy, and use something just because it's from Europe, Asia or USA. I like companies who listens to their users.
I have to LOL aloud about this... with OS 3.0 you will be able to recieve MMS and do video recording... good for apple...
ALL phones (except apple) have that abbility... even my 6 year old sonny ericsonn... hahaha...
And someone was saying nokia is pathetic... jesus... i phone is pathetic... take nokia 5800 is have everything for 300 euros less than i phone ;)
The funny thing is that we are using, loving and writing about the iPhone for more than two years now. And STILL Nokia is nowhere to produce a handset which is even close to the iPhone! LOL HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA
Nokia is pathetic! LOL
iphone same as ipod, a new one every couples of month...sigh
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009That is correct. Nokia fanboys keep on repeating the same things over and over again. They ar... moreHmm,crazy aples and oranges..., how noisy aple users is with iphone that can't do much for any other experienced phone user in 21century, and i just come to a news that the aple is using multitouch screen that is not real owner and may sun come in front of justice for infringements, so guys for more read the link underneath...
Elan Microelectronics of Taiwan Sues Apple over Multitouch Technology
Wednesday April 8, 2009 2:19 PM CDT - By: Michael Kwan
Click to ZoomOne of the features that differentiates the iPhone from other similar smartphones is that it happens to have a multitouch display. As it turns out, Apple may not have the rights to use that technology at all.
Elan Microelectronics of Taiwan has been in discussion with Cupertino for the last two years, working to come to some sort of amicable agreement over the use of the multitouch technology. Well, it seems that these talks have broken down and Elan is prepared to head to the courts for retribution.
A short while ago, Elan came to a cross-licensing agreement with Synaptics, another company that muddles around in the multitouch field. Given that partnership, Elan is facing off against Apple with a little bit of extra steam. Elan feels that it has a "unique edge with this patent, and they want to send a signal to the market."
Elan has a patent on the use of a touchscreen with multitouch inputs, but it's been suffering quite a bit during this economic downturn. Maybe they're just looking to cash in on some of those patents they have, but if Apple is unjustly using the tech, Elan deserves its slice of the pie.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009You are complaining about the iphone releasing the iphone 3g a year after the ist gen iphone? ... moreiphone fun boys, let's get clear with this issue, that you can't compare one iphone with nokia 5800xm or N97, it's because nokia is way to much advanced technology compare to aple, but sure aple can try comparing against older phones so maybe aple get credit climing on touch screen but still they may beat aple, because almost 10 more things they do.. that even new aple update v30 cant do it, it just can't do, it's no tech inside iphone, so cot the crap!
The nokia5800xm can do lot of things, it's multitask in the same time, and now everyday is coming out new and sophisticated software, and you can run even Microsoft windows or emulate total iphone or palm in nokia N E 5800xm, and you will be able to have extra possibilities that ordinary iphone can't do at all..., but how about aple, can your aple do this things run s60 or Microsoft windows... newer, so forget iphone really sucks!
The funny part is that, very few nokia users are emulating in iphone!:-(
Check out this youtube video about nokia 5800!
can i just say, alot of people on here are concluding that people who own the nokia n95 or n82 are poor because they cant afford standalone devices.
what a load of rubbish!
anyone here who can afford an n82 must be relatively well off, as if they were poor, they wouldnt buy such an expensive handset!
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009Dream on Nokia fanboys, whose N-Series CPU's are made by Texas Instruments and whose web brows... moreUrm... Im not a Nokia user, in fact I dont even like their phones. Been using my Rokr Z6 for a long time now. I dont even like touch phones.
I heard that Apple has made an order for 3MP and 5MP cameras. Could it be that the 3MP will be for the front camera and the 5MP for the back? That would give excellent picture quality for picture taking and for video calls as well. I cant wait to use the iPhone with Skype video call
