broken record, 22 May 2009Why on God's earth would anyone even want to SETTLE for an iPhone? It's trash quite frankly. ... moreI agree you,it has nothing,only the cost is high...we can get all the features wat ever u speicified above in nokia phone for 5000rs
I-phone sucks in his features,can it has mega pixel camera with flash?its like use and throw mobile phone,u dont get any spare parts for this mobile...instead of spending 250$ for this better u can buy "CHINA MODEL" phones for 10$....
Why on God's earth would anyone even want to SETTLE for an iPhone?
It's trash quite frankly.
No bluetooth music streaming and/or file transfers (video is out of the question)
No drag and drop file juggling
No Flash support inside Safari (where the heck is Opera Mobile for this thing)
No copy and paste
No front camera
No video recording
No video calls
No user replaceable battery
No VGA resolution
No IR port (it's something I take for granted, using my phone as a remote for well...anything just about)
No physical keyboard
No external storage card support (Micro SDHC cards are up to 32 GB now, 8GB is NOT enough these days, especially for a media device)
No voice command (WM devices and even some "el-cheapo" phones have featured this for years now)
No MMS (it doesn't have phone-to-phone MMS, it has phone-to-air-to-phone picture sharing necessitating a data plan)
No Live TV (that doesnt require you to be connected to an app like Orb on your home PC, which defeats the purpose, why would I want to watch it on a dinky non VGA screen instead of just on my home PC when im at home anyways)
No camera flash
No camera zoom
Same old, subpar, 2 MP camera for that matter
Limited video format support
Limited picture format support
Limited file format support in general
Only 128 MB of RAM (cant run many apps simultaneously, new WM phones are getting 256+ MB of RAM, with 220+ MB free on bootup, and with the Appstore opening up and 3rd party apps making their way to the phone, Apple is behind on the times)

As to your other questions it depends on the developer, games can be closed and when you open them again they are paused at the same place, iTunes can be used while playing some games, again it's up to the developer to write it that way.
Iphone antagonists should just zip it. You guys are flooding the comments page with nonsense and bitter comments. Millions of people are waiting for the new iphone and what it offers. It is an awesome device as it is. W/ 3.0 OS, it's even better. You guys are sounding like broken records bringing up iphone disadvantages over and over again. Disadvantages that we already know and willing to accept because the iphone's other cool features and functionalities outweighs it. Give it a rest guys. No one is stopping you from getting the phone of your choice, so respect us as well.

.... moreNgage is a failure, and so does iphone gaming
battery life - u bring your phone to work throughout the day, it serves for calls, sms, some browsing and even then iphone is known for its sad batt life. Put in gaming and you have one massive failure. Batt dead = no phone. This is why portable consoles have advantage. For iphone games, if u really wanna enjoy, u stay at home and play where a charger is accessible. But then youre at home and u have PC/consoles no?
btw, im curious, can u quickly minimize a iphone game in the background if something needs to be done or do u need to exit it fully?
ANd can some mp3's play on the background while u play?
Anonymous, 22 May 2009PSP & N-Gage still Better. sorry but that's trueWho wants to pay $12 for a woeful N-Gage game when 99c iPhone games are so much better...
...no-one, that's why N-Gage is such an epic fail.
I'd rather get a fart App than an N-Gage game!

just like how PC gamers view console shooters when it started
well if they get rid of the crap 2 meg camera and put a 3.2 or 5 meg cam onboard. you will have an awesome phone. but i doubt that will happen. but looks a good phone. but sadly there are so many better iphone clones out there. that make this look crap. and are so much better.
but apple started the trend of smart looking touch phones.

like those hit the beaver or lemming game u see in arcades, where u put in a coin and just hit the animal where it pops out of the hole-MGS is like that. SOme ppl just get excited due to the touch screen novelty of it. touch and shoot.
im sorry to say gamer gamers wouldnt like it. But iphone fans would worship it like no other just cause the function separates the iphone from other phones.
What is there to brag about gaming using the iPhone? Have you guys tried playing Silent Hill and Metal Gear on it? It is really laughable, it is just a point shoot app with good graphics. Comparing it to a gaming device like PSP or the DS is like comparing oranges and canned tuna.
Apple worries me because of 2 things
1) High Radation
2) If the logo glows at the back what is the point. I dont want to advertise apple, battery life less... seems pointless... Steve Jobs .. Understated elegance !!!!!
