    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.
    I agree..... Why does everyone have to be so closed minded? Maybe, just maybe Apple have hit the nail on the head here. With a phone that people want. Us EduGeeks may not want it, but I would bet my bottom dollar it's gonna be a great seller.

    The tests looked pretty fair, and I would like to see some PDA's go through the same test and see how they size up.

    The masses are blind sheep tho'. None of the technology is new or innovative as far as I know, all of it already available elsewhere in some form.

    Good luck to Apple. Marketing will play a huge part in the phone's success, and those more savvy can buy something exactly the same for a lot less.

    A badge is everything though in this materialistic world (is that a word or have I just made it up?).

    A Skoda is built on VW chassis' but people still buy the VW because of the badge, even if they have to pay a couple more grand for it.

    To some yes - take a Sony laptop = £200 for that little badge.

    Assuming its the same chip as the N95 then it is innovative. Both the Iphone and N95 are basically Dreamcasts in a phone. Some of the graphics features are ahead of top of the range £600 PC 3dcards.

    Saying that personally all I want in a phone is to make phone calls and text once in a while.

    Re: iPhone

    Due to some serious 'activation' problems, a lot of people have got iBricks instead of iPhones.

    Re: iPhone

    I had a play with one earlier in the year ... nice to use and pretty intuitive. I miss having something as nice as my Sony Ericsson P800 (I never felt that the P900 and upwards were significant improvements really).

    I have thought about the N95, but I will probably wait until the iPhone is over here, and maybe even wait a little longer to get the 2nd generation and the usual upgrades.

    So you don't need it for its technical merits; just because it's apple? :P

    Of course ... didn't you realise I had been corrupted by the 'Jobs field of induced marketting'?

    Nah ... the functionality of it is pretty much the best I have seen so far, but it could be better ... I am waiting to find out what improvements are on the cards and then I will decide ...

    PCWorld.com is the website of a major US computer magazine, you might think of it as being like PC Pro in this country. It's not pcworld.co.uk of the stores in this country.

    My opinion, for what it's worth:
    At the moment the iPhone is a great statement of intent but in terms of what it can do for you today it's a SmartPhone for people who don't know what a real SmartPhone can do. iPhone 2.0 will be really interesting.

    Re: iPhone

    Its also sold 500,000 units in the first day or two!

    And considering they double up on the production cost it ain't going anywhere soon

    Im more interested in how they adapt it for the UK, if they sell it as is then they are on to a loser right off. For once I hope they are delaying its release here because the end result will be better

    I think the adaptation for Europe and Asia will be the 2.0 edition I'm thinking of above. 3G is really expected over here and I think it's actually a basic requirement over much of the Asian markets. Hopefully they'll fix some of the other major gaping holes too.

    Re: iPhone

    Just sold my N80 in favour of the K810i - N80 needed a better processor and to be smaller..

    Use the camera on my SE all the time - it's excellent

    MP3, phone and camera should be converged - Nokia and SE will be leading the way
