How many people buy smartphones then only use them for calls and other basic functions?
It's a lot because usually unless you're in the geek minority you won't care enough to flash a winmo rom, customize symbian or use any of the underwhelming web browsing or other features.
The iPhone comes along and the Internet is easy, it looks just like your PC, email is easy you enter a username and password, you change SIM's and it all just works, there are no APN settings to mess around with, you don't have to call tech support to set it up.
Result 66% of mobile web traffic is done on iPhone's, worldwide.
ABC, CNN, BBC and many, many others customize their websites to SUIT the iPhone WITH NO NEED FOR FLASH!
iphone is 100 times more fun to use and better options that any other phone out there. sorry Smart phone out there
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2009sorry, it isn't at all.. Its blackberry device that sold the most in terms of smartphone. And ... moreorry, it isn't at all.. Its blackberry device that sold the most in terms of smartphone. And nokia when it comes to overall sales. Thus apple is neither here nor there. But i do not consider iphone as smartphone but rather just a ordinary phone because it couldnt even multi task so in what way is it smart? lol

surfie, 14 Jun 2009iv nokia fan all my life but i have to say that steve jobs changed the mobile world upside dow... morewell, technology wise, they don't rock. Its those parts supplier that rocks. They spend billions of dollars to research on groundbreaking technology. Thus i do not agree with your sentence. you can only compare apple in terms of software writing. and nothing else.
I would say when comes to technology, Samsung rocks. They are the company that spend billion of dollars in semiconductor research that had brought the technology to this far. Intel too. But not apple, not in any way.
i didn't care when it was announced to have 3mp camera, faster 3g, compass, etc.
but new cpu&ram is exactly what iphone needs!this upgrade sounds like its worth it now. hopefully less crashing on some apps.
funny.. 412MHz is almost 2x faster speed? oh, I didnt know that iphone 3G was that slow. hate apple, they make cheap electronics including mac that comparably have lower performance than other manufact., but they charge 2x prices on that.

The iPhone jailbreaking community (iPhone OS hacker community) is very quick in exploiting apple's iPhone OS security flaws.
Its funny how this tread became an iphone bashers thread. If you hate the iphone, why did you navigate to this page in the first place? I've never seen such a load of crap on one page. if the iPhone sucks so much then don't buy it, period.
How about by a an N95 and an iPod touch?
iphones come unlocked, they usualy automaticaly lock onto the first sim card thats inserted into them. if its brand new in box never used, it should be unlocked.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2009I said "one of the bestselling, if not the bestselling SMARTPHONE", not just cell phone. Why ... morefor your info, i switch because i can or could. i have the right to try anything i want and therefore i choose to try out the iphone 3g. for as you never really having a problem with the phone well, that's good for you but there are soo many who have. it's not that different and that category as any other phone for as having it's problems. sorry you lost the camera function and you stated you gain with the internet,how? iphone doesn't support flash and most sites require flash (CNN,ABC,BBC,etc...) symbian was good with that and the browser for the nseries is pretty darn good.
most ppl here havent got a chance to try out all spanking new phs such as iph 3GS, omniaHD, N97, HTC touch pro2, diamond 2 etc. All these phs are so called in the 2nd wave of competition.
During the first wave, iph is a clear winner bcoz stunning screen with fluent and easy UI is what ppl want from smart ph and others cant give it. N96 is a nightmare and dont even have touchscreen. omnia is better in some aspect but the main thing(screen resolution) sucks and laggy.
But just yesterday, I got a chance to try out N97 in a shop. Its super fast and the ph is damn cool (especially white color). Its not bulky but thick due to slide keyboard which iph does not have. So, I think iph 3GS is not a winner in this round of competition. Apple fan can still stick with iph, coz they like to even say 2 mega iph camera is comparable to other 5 or 8 mega phs. :P
iv nokia fan all my life but i have to say that steve jobs changed the mobile world upside down,and when it comes to technology apple rocks and steve jobs is the man,one thing apple should concentrate on is the build quality of this iphone 3gs as with the 3g friends had bad experience,other then that i think its time for me to start appleing the iphone ; )
Alif, 12 Jun 2009i can say only one thing.........iphone 3G-s rockssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssExcept interface, all other features are very old when compared with other leading models. this version of iphone also sucks.
im not talking about the 3gs coz its not out yet ill reserve my opinion when its out...that is for the previous gens
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2009If you don't like the iPhone 3GS then don't say anything. I'm just sick and tired of people sa... moredont be daft
what would be the point of a forum if everyone had one positive opinion? there's meant to be conflicts of opinion, varying responses and mixed reviews. In your ridiculous mind the forum should go something like this;
'i say, isn't the iphone smashing!'
'I agree good sir the iphone is indeed smashing!'
'then we are agreed, the iphone is definitely smashing!'
mmm interesting forum
