    Re: iPhone

    its total hype and style over substance
    Style is a big seller sometimes and a lot of people will value it over substance anyday (not me!)

    £300-£400 would not be alot if it was available on contract.

    Quoted for the truth!

    Re: iPhone

    I don't mean to be nasty but I have never seen the point in many of the "features" that are added onto mobiles, menu systems could be improved (iPhone might do this) but cameras, mp3 players, data storage, video calling etc are things I have never really used on any of mine.

    I have a SE W810i at the moment, I've used the camera twice, the rest of the time I use it for recieving calls and texting.

    I just plain do not understand people who need everything on a mobile. I want a TINY mobile phone, I'd love one I could wear as a watch and of a similar size but I don't need these "features" which frankly I'd call gimmicks.

    If I want to take pictures I'll use a digital camera, if I want to listen to MP3s I'll use my MP3 player and if I want to video call, I'll jus speak to them face to face!!

    My best mate always has the latest GPS mobile, no doubt he'll be given an iPhone free by the local mobile shop that he does tech support for. He always ties to show them off to me and sighs in frustration because I'm just never, ever impressed

    Re: iPhone

    are things I have never really used on any of mine.
    Just becuase you dont use them doesnt mean other poeple dont use them, thats why there are many different mobile phone models for different people and market positions.

    Its a bit sad but the 5mp camera on my N95 is currently the best dc I own , its handy becuase it fits in my pocket and is always good to go as I wouldnt normally carry a digital camera around with me.

    I don't need these "features" which frankly I'd call gimmicks.
    then you dont need a smart phone then, there is nothing wrong or right about this its just what meets your requirements.

    I'm looking forward to using skype on my phone in the near future so I could make calls to taiwan / europe for nothing which would be handy.

    Also make good use of Pico drive mega drive emulator and scumm vm as well as countless other software all of which make the train a little more comfortable.

    All these products will fit some kind of market position, I'm sure a company like apple would have done thier homework on this and made decisions based from this etc. Apple tends to have very good marketing so I'm sure thye wont struggle to sell the iPhone.

    For me, this is the key point. The camera on my Razr isn't brilliant, neither is the video recording. But, its always with me wherever i go incase i need to quickly snap something. Its just handy to always have a camera on you without actually having to carry around yet another device. I wouldn't use it as a replacement for my digital camera with any serious photography but when i'm out and spot a good shot its handy to be able to just take it.

    Well I have no doubt they will sell, Apple has a target market and i'm sure plenty will jump on the bandwagon.

    Just not for me

    Re: iPhone

    Yes, but why buy a PDA and a phone seperate? So why buy a music player and a phone seperately. I don't want to carry two devices in my pocket when I can just have one.

    I wouldn't buy an iPhone as I don't have use for one, but I can see that Apple have hit the market exactly for certain customers.

    Re: iPhone

    Isn’t the hardware between the iphone and N95 pretty similar just the software that’s different? Things like the 3dchip and CPU are along the same lines if not the same. Not 100% sure but that’s what I thought.

    Re: iPhone

    I took delivery of my HP ipaq 500 last week and hope to right a review for you sometime soon.

    So far so good apart from a coupe of issues.

    Functionality wise it's very good.

    “From a website that plans on selling the device - no conflict of interest there then..... ”
    Not everything is a conflict of interest. Perhaps they are selling it as it did so well in the tests. So you think they faked the video? Even if there is a conflict of interest the video and testing looked fair.
