therock, 06 Jun 2009you just answered it. the point is to carry one device.
it is matter whether you can afford... moreWell the whole locked vs unlocked thing is a USA vs world. Most people in the US buy the phones available to them on their carrier of choice. I agree that the iphone on the unlocked market ($600+++) is not well priced, but I think that is demand more so than fair price.
And the 5800 vs the iphone in terms of OS is no competition. Nokias have tons of features but with them it always seems to be a story of freeze 'n crash. I am not saying that the iphone does not have problems and some units are not defective, after all these things are man made. But the Mac OS Mobile OS is the most rock solid OS out of WinMo 6.1 and Symbian S60 (I do not know about Android since I have not used it yet but I am tempted to get the HTC Magic).
Phones I have owned recently: iphone, w960, htc touch pro.
It`s the real Ver.3, but itsn`t really different( really exciting) from the previous one!
these specific photos i believe is fake but a new iphone might be around the corner so lets keep our hopes up.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2009Did you just say that Iphone apps are better than Symbian apps? lolyes they are, 1 billion apps downloaded in 9 months provesit.
on a separate note, Im not really excited about the 3.2MP camera, the 2MP one is fine for most things. The real improvement is the support for hardware attatchments, universal search (spotlight) and push notifications for apps. Excellent work.

Anonymous, 06 Jun 2009Did you just say that Iphone apps are better than Symbian apps? lolIphone apps are better than symbian and a lot lot cheaper.... and im a nokia user (N82, E51 & 6120 before that)
Mac Power!, 06 Jun 2009All the hype around here about Crystal, Arena, Idou, Aino, Naite, Omnia HD, and Xpress and N-s... morehahahaha, you are funny guy :D .... I see major improvement, great 3.2 MPX camera, video recording and stuff that iphone 1.0 should have :)

Other features are useless... Apps? Who needs them when I have this gazillion pixel camera? Speed? naw.. no need for that as well. Smoothness? As long as I can take fuzzy pictures at 12mp, I don't need a smooth operating system.
Speaking of "Name Brand" lenses, learn a thing or few about cameras and lenses before you bring this up. Many Nokia phones have Carl Zeiss optics but they still can't take good pictures. The reviews on here proves that. As for mega pixels, it's pointless as long as the sensor is small. The worse 5 mega pixel DSLR will take better pictures then the best 10+ mega pixel compact camera. Why? Because the sensor is better and bigger. Google DSLR vs point and shoot camera. You'll see. So this goes same for camera phones. The sensor is just too small. Please do more research before you post.
all iphones out there are beta lol. people wasted money on a beta product even this new upcoming iphone is still beta
therock, 06 Jun 2009no camera flash, still? another rotten apple.
for the iphone fans that are claiming they wo... moreHey Therock, how are you?
i saw alot of comments that you posted on iphone forum.
you are always comparing your n95 to iphone, why? before i got my iphone 3g ive used n95 for almost a year.n95 is very nice phone too, but i think n95 is not better than iphone, i got my reasons and you got yours.
this is worldwide business, if apple would make a phone with multi touch, 5mp camera with video recording and auto focus and flash,video calling,turn by turn gps,flash memory and alot of things that you wish, who is gonna buy your nokia or other phones like samsung, se, lg,htc, bb and ..... etc?
thay may bring negative situation for all other phone companys.
i hope you can understand these things.
have a nice day
The enhancement are not mind blowing - they are just fixes to things the fone should have had in the beginning. But i'm still 1005 for the apple. While the fone itself is nothing special ( i think Blackberrys and the new Pre got it beat) the apps are still killing the competition. Its all about the apps - i think apple know that, thats why i think they haven't really bothered to bring some super hardware enhancements, they know where their strength lies - its the same with the Mac vs PC war.

know what Iphone wiith Video and 3.2 MPX that's loook goook for apple and the killer is come back haha
the iphone is still in an early stage...too wide for a touchscreen compared to the nokia 5800, omnia, htc touch pro, etc etc.

it is matter whether you can afford a pricey high end smartphone or not.
the iphone is cheap because of the contract with att. an unlocked iphone will probably be around 500 dollars. same as the price for unlocked smartphones such an n-series. however the nokia 5800 is around the 300 dollar mark. some of the n-series and e-series are around 400 dollars or less. i would rather pay for a one high end smartphone than pay for a smartphone and a camera.
This had better be fake, in order to generate consumer excitement Apple need to come up with a fresh spin on the design rather than some minor visual enhancements. The new iphone...NOW with a matte back!!! Oooo
