Vinay, 25 Jun 2011PLease advise me difference between samsung galaxy 2 & apple 4Can't you tell the difference?
Apple seems afraid of Android's momentum and other manufacturers overtaking them in this non-stoping technological race, so they try to buy some time by trying to delay others. Pick up the pace Apple and listen to your customers. Give them what they want (like flash support for example) instead of arrogantly feeding them with PR BS. Samsung did this with Galaxy S2 and they have a winning deal in their hands.
[deleted post]Super AMOLED beats regular AMOLED... esp in the sun. And besides, who doesnt want to have a beautiful screen if they could?
sure the n8 may have the best camera on a phone... but it does kinda suck when it comes to apps, which is why people like android and iOS...N8 interface isn't all that smooth compared to high-end android phones
other OSes like WP7 isnt really useful unless u have xbox nd zune n stuff... symbian isnt useful in anyway nowadays, meego isnt really heard much of - not many people know what it can do.
Android OS and iOS pretty much beats Symbian. If Android/iOS is lacking in some areas, they will catch up and whizz past Symbian in no time, since they(android) are able to upgrade and improve their firmware quickly and easily.
meh, i think N8 could've made a revolutionary turn around if it had Android :(
[deleted post]just a thought... if apple does sue samsung over multi-touch... samsung can just screw apple over by no longer manufacturing iphone components for them?

Did you think it was safe when the SUN went down (I know old habits.)
aaaa is partially right in what he perversely found humourous, not just Samsung every single capacitive touchscreen by every phone maker, can be locked out of the US!

Apple iPhone Patent a Huge Blow to Rival Smartphone Makers
Apple's newly awarded patent gives it ownership of the capacitive multitouch interface, spelling big trouble for rival smartphone makers, say patent experts. By Damon Poeter
Apple has been awarded its long sought-after patent on the iPhone. Intellectual property experts say it's so broad and far-reaching that the iPhone maker may be able to bully other smart phone manufacturers out of the U.S. market entirely.
Some three-and-a-half years after filing for a patent on the iPhone, Apple on Tuesday was awarded U.S. patent number 7,966,578 for "[a] computer-implemented method, for use in conjunction with a portable multifunction device with a touch screen display, [that] comprises displaying a portion of page content, including a frame displaying a portion of frame content and also including other content of the page, on the touch screen display."
That's just the beginning of the abstract for Apple's iPhone patent, which the company filed back in December 2007. It gets quite a bit more technical in its full form, but there's one thing patent experts consulted by PCMag agree on—Apple has been awarded an incredibly broad patent that could prove to be hugely problematic for other makers of capacitive touch-screen smartphones.
Apple's patent essentially gives it ownership of the capacitive multitouch interface the company pioneered with its iPhone, said one source who has been involved in intellectual property litigation on similar matters. That's likely to produce a new round of lawsuits over the now-ubiquitous multitouch interfaces used in smartphones made by the likes of HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Research in Motion, Nokia, and others that run operating systems similar in nature to Apple's iOS, like Google's Android, said the source, who asked not to be named.
What's more, the patent seems broad enough in scope to cover virtually any mobile device with an interface that incorporates the finger movements used to operate Apple's touchscreen devices, the source said.
That means tablets that are similar to Apple's iPad, and media players with iPod Touch-like interfaces could also be targets for Apple's legal team.
Another patent expert said Apple could use its newly awarded patent to "bully" rivals.
"This patent covers a kind of functionality without which it will be hard to build a competitive smartphone," said Florian Mueller, an award-winning intellectual property activist with 25 years of software industry expertise who blogs at Foss Patents.
"Unless this patent becomes invalidated, it would allow Apple to stifle innovation and bully competitors."
Mueller did caution that the courts wouldn't likely take Apple's side if potential legal opponents were able to show that they didn't just ape the iPhone's touchscreen interface finger swipe for finger swipe.
"The way to read a patent claim is that it's only infringed if the accused technology is implemented in its entirety—all of the characteristics must be matched," he said.
"In this case, large parts of the independent claims 1 and 2 describe a smartphone, but there are also specific references to the 'translation' (in terms of relocation) of touchscreen contents with a touch gesture. Only a smartphone providing that functionality could be accused of infringement."
The first source also noted that Apple's intellectual property rights could be construed to cover just the iPhone interface's interaction with Web pages. But that's still a pretty problematic scenario for makers of iPhone-like smartphones, the source added.
"This patent covers smartphones that allow a user to manipulate the display of a Web page with finger gestures using different fingers and/or combinations of fingers, so it appears broad enough to cover all modern touchscreen smartphones because they all allow you to use one finger to move the Web page left or right, and a combination of two fingers to zoom in and zoom out of the Web page," the source said.
There are a few ways the awarding of Apple's iPhone patent could play out in the coming days, said the source.
Apple could conceivably restrict makers of touchscreen smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices from selling their products in the U.S. More likely is that Apple would reach a settlement with such competitors and start licensing its patented technology for a tidy new income stream.
If Apple does decide to play hardball and squeeze out rivals rather than set up cross-licenses, the source said, it's entirely possible that a court could find it in the public interest to scrap the patent rather than allow a monopoly on what has become a defining interface for an entire category of consumer devices.
Gsm Arena should totally make a widget app for android so we can see the latest phones without having to go on. Whos with me?
Hi experts, i want to buy this phone but i read some complains about the WIFI and the GPS, some guys said their connectivity is very poor compared to other phones they were using.
can u tell me if it's true or not
To all who are having Battery back up problem, I'd suggest them to download and install an app like 'Battery Calibrator' by Nema and calibrate the battery after full/100% charge and then drain it fully till it shuts off. Do this process once and you should have 15-20% more juice outta your battery.
Fongy, 24 Jun 2011Have just rooted mine too (a little scary, but well worth it!) How do you d/l the games - as ... moreGet an app called Chainfire3D from the market. Search around XDA for tegra plugins. Then tegra zone will recognize you as having a tegra phone.
if anybody want to buy it I suggest you go http://www.2011bestphone.com/?p=33 to know more information about it !!! i think it can help you very much

Infact WELL SAID SAMMY " The GREATEST SMARTPHONE EVER"
Cedd, 24 Jun 2011I can see how famous and hot N9 is. It was announced 3 days ago and it got almost 360,000 hits... moreHmmm, not sure on the point you're trying to make..
There is obviously going to be a hell of a lot of interest in anything Nokia because they are doing so badly... none of those hits and likes and views transfer to sales...
And if you want evidence of that - look at the N8...
MASSIVELY viewed / liked / etc
Sales? Terrible. Reviews? Terrible.
Just because Lady Gaga has 42,000,000,000,000 friends on Facebook - it doesn't mean they'll all transfer into sales - she hasn't even got to #1 in the UK with her latest stuff...
Exactly the same principle here...
