>>"Umm, whats the point of 7.1mp in a phone? Whats the point of 16M colors? Whats the point of Wimax when it wont be widely available for a while? Whats the point of 8GB when you have a microSD slot that will accept up to 32GB? Whats the point of HSDPA in a device with wimax? And who wants a projector in their phone?"
Point 1: What's the point of a 7.1mp you ask? Well what's the point of a 12mp cybershot then? Same thing; so you can blow the picture up to A2 or whatever and hang it on your wall if you're into things like that. But like I said before, there isn't much point in increasing MP's if the sensor quality doesn't increase...
Point 2: What's the point of 16M colors? Isn't that obvious or are you color blind?
Point 3: What's the point of Wimax? Well, wouldn't it be nice to know that in a year or so when Wimax is running in major cities you'll have the tech to use it?
Point 4: What's the point of 8GB onboard mem? Well, what if I don't feel like buying MicroSD cards?
Point 5: What's the point of HSDPA in a device that supports Wimax? Well duh, what if you're in an area where there is no Wimax?
Point 6: Who wants a projector in their phone? Uh, gee, let me think... Anyone who wants to watch a projected movie maybe?
doughboy, show me one post anywhere on the internet where *I* complained about the features on this phone.

>>They could easily make a 7.1mp camera phone, with touch screen 16M colors, Wifi, Wimax, Bluetooth, GPS, 8GB standard flash, HSDPA, and a tiny projector to play movies on a wall (yip, this can be done), along with all the usual things found on a Blackberry, iPhone or normal Sony Ericsson combined...

Cellphone manufacturers are taking the public for a ride. They've segmented so much that they bring out phones well under-spec of what they're capable of making. That's how they make money.

And I know what you iPhone fans are thinking, "The iPhone's got most of that"... And yes to a certain extent it does. But what's the good of creating a phone if it's not gonna be used in a lot of countries. Apple is being greedy, making exclusive partners and asking for percentage returns on calls made. At least that's what they want in South Africa. So our providers have given them the middle finger. I did too.
But having said all that, creating the ultimate phone from a manufacturers perspective, would just be silly - we'd all have the best phone and no one would really need an upgrade. Plus, it would be so difficult to make anything better. At the moment it's easy - there's always something new to add.
Ideally however, the cellphone manufacturers need to be looking at where we are going with the mobile device. Camera, GPS (more recently) and mobile communication is where we're at now, but it needs to be so much more. It needs to be an all-in-one mobile device that changes your TV channels, turns on the house lights, stove, alarm, opens your front door, starts your car, and pays for things like food at a convenience store...
Those are the areas mobile manufacturers should be looking into, since although I'm due for an upgrade, there isn't really anything available now, that my phone which is about 3 years old isn't capable of doing.
Sure, you get faster data speeds, but it's overrated.
Sure, I've only got a 2mp camera when i could have a 5mp one. But as any photographer knows, it's not about the mega-pixels, it's about the sensor.
Sure, you get touch screens now, but I've played with the iPhone and and HTC Touch, and let me tell you, having to sometimes push down more than once is irritating. The software is slower than keyboard input and unresponsive at times.
But one thing that I'm really looking forward to, and I say this assuming the next phone I get has the same functions it does now, is screen color and clarity. My phone is a 65K. If I'm going to use a mobile device, it has to be clear, crisp, and colorful. The interface has to be fast and responsive, and commonsense-like. It also has to be really comfortable to hold, not too thick, not too slippery so that it doesn't fall out my hand, and it needs to look really great. I'm sure a lot of people have thought the same when looking for a girlfriend...
So yea, I'm due for an upgrade. Do I want any of the phones available? No. Will I ever be excited about a phone coming out? Possibly. But that will depend on the manufacturers and their segmentation...
