    iPhone

    I was just watching the BBC report on the iPhone - have to laugh, the reporter tried to load up the map function - did not load. Then he tried to launch a U-tube video - again, did not work. Ok it was trying to use the Apple stores Wi Fi link - still had me laughing though.
    $600 for a phone ? Errrrr no thanks. Yet another bit of over rated Apple tosh.....
    I'll stick with my trusty Nokia 6310i.

    And no 3G or HSDPA (to the benefit of the battery life) think I will stick with my N95 (as long as I remember to charge it everyday) and hurry up with the new firmware Nokia!

    As much as i hate apple, its price tag is reasonable in the UK compared to other phones, so along with the ipods popularity it *will* sell

    Re: iPhone

    I was considering on getting one of these, but looking again, i thought, nah... stick with nokias... but am looking at the 6300 or the new 6210 or the 6500 which is still to be released.

    Except they have implemented a phone with a multi-touch screen, which is a lot of substance...

    Ok, the phone is missing a few features (video recording, mp3's as ringtones etc...) but there is nothing to stop new firmware releases fixing that.

    Still, I wouldn't spend £300 on a phone.

    And the first thing to break / crack when it gets dropped or sat on when someone leaves it in their back pocket...
    I've lost count how many times I've dropped my Nokia and it still works....

    Yes, Nokia's are good and reliable/strong things (i've yet to manage to break one) but then this is still innovative.

    Clearly the real question is, does it run Linux?

    I have been using a Nokia E61 for over a year now with no problems. It's a fantastic phone and lets me do all the other bits I need to- PIM, documents to go etc., that Windows Mobile is so good at (without having to use Windows Mobile). Before that I used a Dell Axim and a phone.

    I'm still skeptical about the iPhone. It's beautiful, has some very innovative features, and that's only the 1st gen version...but business will be hard pressed to integrate it into their systems without support for Exchange and other things. Whereas my lowly E61 lets me use the BlackBerry Push service, Exchange, and IMAP (or all three at once).

    I don't know. I probably will buy one, but it depends on the price of the thing when released.

    Would that have nothing to do with the fact we are living in a material world, where many people don't care how many stars their car got in the ncap safety tests, as long as it looked shit hot?!

    You can't blame Apple for trying to get in on a piece of this 'stylish' market a certain percentage of the world goes for!

    Re: iPhone

    It looks good and looks like its a nice device to use but apart from that its total hype and style over substance. Especially at the prices they are charging

    If you so desperately want an ipod and a phone, you could buy an 8GB Nano and a decent phone for half the price of the iphone. It wouldnt take up much more pocket space either
