Anonymous, 04 Oct 2008What do you mean nokia doesnt give firmware upgrades? Are you nuts? If there is a company that... moreAll phones get some upgrades. I know that. But it is not as organized, systematic and as easy as the iphone's. Some phones get its updates from developers from who knows where. Sometimes they would have to hunt those updates down by visiting several websites, unlike Apple that all you have to do is hook it up to itunes. Well here in the US, BT on phones is mostly used in making phone calls and not so much for file sharing, although some people do. It is against the law to drive and be on a phone unless you are using a hands free device. So yes, BT headsets are very popular here in the US. Email is more prominent and more useful globally, especially in business, and especially here in the US. I don't know which remote area of the globe you are from, but as for me, I never had a problem sending an email to any of my friends here in the US and in Asia. Let me ask you this, if you were to chose which feature you would sacrifice and not to use ever again, which one would be it? Email? or BT/MMS? LOL. I hope you choose to sacrifice email, LOL. And let's see how you would BT a file to someone farther than 10 feet from you, LOL. With email, you can be right next to the person, or in a different country, and you can still send the file. BT file transfer is also slow, especially on bigger files. With email, you can send 10 files at the same time, and it's instant. You can email 10 files to 20 people at the same time in different cities. Can your BT do that? So now tell me, which is more important and prominent in sending files? Email or BT/MMS? I will be waiting for your answer.
So there. You admit that camera phones are not as good as digital cameras, so there is no reason why people should make a big deal of the iphones 2mp camera =)
i currently am using a n95 8gb but if i buy this phone it will be a total downgrade.
i hope the nseries will come out with a new phone.
this phone will only go for about $350 US dollars but thats to cheap so i won't buy it.
They could have used a 5 Mpx camera instead of 3 Mpx, i guess the price difference would have been small. But then nobody would have bought the more expensive other touch screen phones Nokia is preparing !
Iphone has released 2 phones. And look at nokia's count still #1 at the market ;)
to the person who's saying that email is more important then MMS is very very wrong, most of the people in the world use MMS more then email and thats a fact. the only people that use email are the ones who have blackberry's and thats because they are communicated for business use.
Also to the person who said iphone is not at the same level as the Nokia 5800, i would tell him to think again. This is just the first test phone from nokia that includes a touch screen. If this already is better then iphone, then what will the successor of the 5800 be like? a monster! just wait and see.
mindzap, 04 Oct 2008my friend.. don't go ballistic on people not liking iphone.. there are a lot of things NOT to ... moreBallistic? Nah. I was simply replying to a Nokia fan who was dissing the iphone =)
What you like or dislike on a phone will not change the fact that the iphone is the best =) Even Nokia is imitating it.
Did I ever say that the iphone is perfect? Nope. So please get it right and don't put words in my mouth =) On 3g, Apple did not throw that feature in just so it can look good on the iphone's specs. Apple made sure that when you sign up through its official carrier, you get to use that feature. Does other phonemakers take that initiative? Nope.
Of course BT is a handy feature, but it's not everything either. I don't need itunes to send a file with my iphone. I could simply email it. You obviously do not have an iphone, lol. Actually, to appreciate the iphone, you need to activate it through its official carrier, so again, you are wrong. The predictive text is 99% accurate and is very helpful. So as you can see, the iphone is the best, that is why all these other phonemakers like Nokia are following its trend =)
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2008I'm a fan of any cool gadget. Not just the iphone =)
People use more BT and MMS than email... moreWhat do you mean nokia doesnt give firmware upgrades? Are you nuts? If there is a company that is known for firmware updates, its nokia. Those 'Premium services' you mentioned are all supported by nokia phones and customer care services. Get your facts right before posting.
Bluetooth is mostly used for filesharing. Making calls and listening to music means you have to purchase a bluetooth headset. Messaging and calling are the most common form of mobile communication. Everyone knows that. Im not sure where u live where u claim e-mail is more prominent. (USA?) Free e-mail is only possible with wi-fi and majority of countries dont have wi-fi hotspots. And yes, camera phones arent as good as digital cameras, but they still provide good pictures. Besides, the difference in image quality is getting smaller with every camera phone. Check n95, n82 and innov8.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2008but it's true, BT and MMS are popular features...
in fact, MMS is a lot more popular than em... moreOf course BT and MMS are popular features. I never said that they're not. But I think to say that MMS and BT are more popular than email is a little too much =) The community will be alright w/out BT and MMS, but I don't think it will be alright w/out email =)
