The iPhone is ok phone, for casual auditory.
Most ridiculous was the fact, that many service providers paid to actors to create a row just to attract potential customer. I'm glad that Europeans has a brain :D
Real life joke :D
At least the biggest problem on the Iphone was corrected, it had always been a 99$ device!!!!
[deleted post]Hi Katrina Halili-Kho, please buy the 5800 XpressMusic and N97 na, so we can test the video capabilities of those two better than HypePhone models. Thanks.
With all the fuss at its launch, the Iphone did not win the hearts of the europeans, at least not in eastern Europe. In Romania where I live, the Iphone is just a total failure, a kitschy device, regarded as a toy for people that play with it all day long and wonder how great the technology is nowadays. It missed the hype because of the Apple selling strategy that ties the device to the impoverishing service. Fortunately for europeans, the service providers have a different strategy that separates the service from the device. The device belongs to the user, it's up to him/her to purchase it, while the company sels the service. Some expensive devices can be subsidized for a 1-2 year committed contract, but it's not worth the effort to commit for a 15% subvention (the service providers have got ripped off with the 50-80% subventions when some customers refused to comply with the contract terms and ended the contracts without paying). The Iphone did not fall into the market when expected, but much later when the market was flooded with unofficial grey Iphones, doctored and unlocked by people that prefer to sell 3-4 overpriced phones/month to get a living instead of getting a job. I played with a first generation Iphone for about an hour and i was not impressed by the functionality. It works, it's well build, nicely finished, but for me something is missing, it's not usefull. Few months ago I replaced my old Palm with an Xperia X1 for 400euros, although the Iphone was cheaper at 320. I absolutely hate the Apple software and the fact that every by of data has to pass through the PC to the Iphone. That is a big NO. 3Megapixel cameras are on the phones since few years ago. So far I have seen a single Iphone user reading newspapers on the subway (probably too busy to do so at work), the rest of them were kids playing games on the way to the school or university, definitely not capable of paying the subscription or being on prepaid SIM. So, don't hate me, Iphone fans, but some people don't care about the Iphone3GSUMTSGSMHSDPAHSUPA (or whatever acronym might have).
SE + Nokia Fan, 09 Jun 2009Straight to the point and I second that!! You couldn't put it in a better sentence... It f... moreEven all the apple fans are raging lol this really means something apple is a bunch of no good liars all those people that got the phone don't even have full support for it lol and the itouch users have to pay for a should be free update that is still a waste of even checking out but let me know how the n97 is i wanna get it around august sept :)
i feel apple staff better carry on making ipods instead of phones because what ever they are offering in their current or latest phones is not worth for the price they askin for it.
The iPhone is for people who can't operate electronic gadgets with more than one hardware button and for certain nationalities where SMS text messaging is unheard of, unlike in the rest of the world. It has long been proven that hardware keypads are the fastest & easiest way to create text messages and to make phone calls. If you wanna get a fancy gizmo, get an iPod Touch, or better yet, a PSP.
(okay now forum Nazi police? :P)
Apple is in cell-phone industry what Bose is in Hi-Fi. That is, overhyped but mediocre status symbol.

It feels like Apple is trying to fork people out of their own money with the same product!
And these days with so many unlocked phones in the market, why bother?
one word can describe the specs released for this "upgrade" that took Apple all this time:
hilarious. 3G "S"? give me a break. at this rate, i will be surprised if apple is on par with today's specs 10 years from now
what's even more hilarious is when 24/7 iphone gsmarena-police P%nm and 3YyT eventually comes here reading this and still tries to defend this garbage
Mizuchi, 08 Jun 2009I'll just get 5800 zune hd and n97 :) apple is hacks and full of false statements and
UiQ is... moreI couldn't agree more...!
I'm getting a white N97 in 2 weeks! Sweet!
So long iPhone!
What ?? new phone ?? lol... has got features that a normal nokia or samsung phone had 2-3 years ago..
Seriously whats the whole deal with the iphones ?? i had one ( 3g version) an gave it away in 2 weeks... its a joke..
No Videocall , no mms , no gps .. etc.. and expensive as well... why ??
my guess Apple marketing in making the phone so unavailable and locking it on a single carrier made people want this phone even if its no better than a bunch of old phones.
HTC USER, 08 Jun 2009now im convinced that HTC has a better features than all other phone here . . .Which HTC model exactly are you referring to?
