The iPhone, its the feel good hit of the cell phone summer. CNET takes a closer look. Is the iPhone really all its cracked up to be? Coming soon Top 5: Best things about the iPhone.
Can you make a phone call on your PS3? Can you carry it in your pocket? $599 is a lot but at least I can use it as a phone everyday and it does fit in my pocket. If you disagree then tell me how to carry a PS3 in my pocket and make phone calls on it. Bladestar: Your comments are exactly what I expected. Apple builds it's brand just like Sony. No one needs a cell phone but we all want one. No one needs DVD's but we all buy them. Very few people buy just what they need. Our society is very materialistic so we must have the next best thing. It gives our society something to talk about.
I don't know if I buy a PS3 with that money... but I do agree that paying that much for a phone.. may be a waste... Ofcourse if you have the money to burn... burn away... @ITR Can you make a phone call on your PS3? No... but... even a free phone you get when subscriving to a carrier can. Can you carry it in your pocket? No... but you can carry any cell phone in your pockets... You do not need a $599 phone which you will be able to use everyday and it does fit in my pocket. Apple is just selling brand here... they are talking advantage of their brand recognition... just like the IPod.. there are cheaper and better alternatives in the market... yet people buy it from them.
Well true, but can you play awesome games on your Phone? normal cellphone games yes, but most are short, and not something you would wait a year and still be excited about it.. With the ps3(well probally all the consoles.) you can! You can stream stuff from your PC, you dont have to worry about battrey life, you can watch Blu-Ray,DVD,quallity movies on your Phone, you have a big screen(TV isnt part of the console, but most households have one!) You have have E3 to look forward to.. Dont have to worry about loosing it.. And yes most people need a phone, but buy a cheaper one!! my phones only 400 NZD, about 200USD and it dose everything i could wish for, 2MP camera Nice screen 3G support Bluetooth MicroSD memory card. and it can obiously make phone calls... but yes people still buy stuff like this...I saw ads for $7000 NZD HD Tv's...FTW?
I'm pretty sure apple knows people are mad of PS3 and they cannot afford it because the price is 600$. People dont buy a PS3 because its 600$ and then they buy an iphone for 500$ ????????? NEVER People also can buy an xbox 360 + 2 new games ahaha That thing doesnt worth 500$
You forget the iPod. Gen1 iPod sold for $400 and $500. It was only for Mac's back then and everyone said it cost too much and would never sell. Then it sold millions...now we are awaiting the 6th generation of the iPod.
they complained about the 4gigs storage. :|
Top 5 Worst Things about the Apple iPhone: 1) Douchebags like the guy in the video are exactly the people who are all hyped about about it. 2) It's $600 for a freakin' phone. Unless you work Wall Street and Blackberry-like devices are now a job requirement in your office, you don't need half of this stuff. Even then, you need a Blackberry, not this. 3) If you really need any more reasons than #1 and #2, you need to rethink your life.
Knowing apple, there'll be a 3G version soon.
Apple = nintendo. They are all about ripping costumers off. and makings tons of profits abusing their names. i never liked the ipod its an overpriced mini drive that plays musik garbage, i like the macs but im a huge ipod hater and this iphone is more of the same i hope it flops hard real hard its to much. iphone? more like iplod die!!
5. No 3G. Well so far only big cities have 3G so if you live outside of the big city how does this benefit the majority? It doesn't. 3G will probably show up first in the Euro version and then the next US version. 4. Small capacity. Your complaining about 4-8GB of space.... What do you want CNET 20GB's? 3. 2 yr contract. It's only a rumor it requires a data plan because WiFi is free. 2 yr contract is expected because you can't have an exclusive phone if the phone can just free roam anywhere... AT&T needs to make some money back since it's basically paying Apple to use it's phones on their network. 2. Non-removable battery. It might not be easy, but you can remove it just like the iPod's battery. Expect iPhone battery kits in about 6 months. 1. Cost. Remember the iPod? People complained about the cost too but they still sold millions.
bubble for you. I didn't understood how they complained about the storage. Its not like the rest of the phones go anyhigher than 4gigs, the most would be 512megs but oh well.
Bubble for you bud - Someone talking sense other that the usual anti apple/ipod stuff you usually see.
Is that its clear surface is the same as the Nano. My Nano scratched so easily that it looked aged before its time.
Do agree., but I bet everybody would still really love one of these in their hands right now, besides all the negative firsts' mistakes which in the future could easily be fixed ( like 3G, more hard drive capacity, would eventually get cheaper ). Thought the biggest mistake was the batteries, really a dumb idea, this is not an ipod that only caters to videos/music. It's all about communication plus... How would they and you know if the batteries are really that reliable to last. That was their mistake with the ipod/ipod video and should have learnt from it.
sounds like ITR works for Apple or some sh!t. Me personally, I have always hated Apple. The only thing Apple have done right was making of iTunes, and thats about it. Everything else they sell and promote is all garbage. Yay, I cant wait to pay 600 bucks for a phone. I mean honestly, if you Apple/Ipod ppl are so into getting the iPhone, why dont you save that 600 bucks, and wait till you get 600 more, and buy one of their crappy Macbooks. It would prolly do you a lot more than an iPhone. This is why Apple sucks: They Charge way too much for way to little. Example: when released, the 30GB Video Ipod was 399.99. When Zune came out is was only 249.99, and still 30 GBs, plus Zune had way more specs than the iPod, and for 150 bucks cheaper. Another example. It costs almost 1699.99 to get a Macbook with only 1GB of ram, 120GB HDD, and only a 13.3" screen, and i can get an HP laptop with a 17", 2GB Ram, 200GB HDD, and an AMDx2 processor, all for 1299.99, and it included a printer. Id just like to know what Apple is thinking about when they make up their prices. Sure all their products are small and lightweight and you can shove them up your @ss, but honestly, there are tons of other great products like the iPod, iPhone, Mac, and Macbooks, and in most cases they are better and offer more, specific wise, then the Apple brand does. Apple just makes no sense.
I definately agree with you. Never used any Apple products myself. Been using mp3 players even before apple came out with their expensive version. For my gym i use a creative one and in my car have a generic one and they both function like they are supposed to do. Why pay extra for same kind of functionality, its listening to music ffs. And yes their notebooks suck as well and are hardly worth for what they do.
